FingerTec going places in Angola

August 2012 Access Control & Identity Management

FingerTec is now being implemented in the transportation industry, specifically the Luanda’s Urban Public Transport Firm known as Transporte Colectivo Urbano de Luanda or TCUL.

With the opening of its inter-provincial route in January 2010, TCUL finds itself now expanding at a faster rate than ever. It has since expanded its routes to the provinces of Kwanza Norte, Zaire, North Luanda, and South Luanda, and created three bases in the Luanda province in the districts of Cacuaco, Viana (Zango locality) and Samba (Morro Bento). TCUL currently has more than 500 buses under its jurisdiction.

With all these advancements, TCUL decided to implement a time attendance system to ease the monitoring of its attendance and payroll processes. FingerTec Angola won the bid for the contract with TCUL to install several AC102C units in the bus stations.

The FingerTec AC102C was selected because of its large capacity to hold fingerprint templates (the number of employees was over 4000). The staff at TCUL unanimously agreed the AC102C had the greatest impact in making their HR solutions easier to manage. Aside from the AC102C, FingerTec Angola had also installed the fingerprint time attendance terminal AC102 and Face ID 2, a biometric solution incorporating facial verification with fingerprint as well as RFID card and password.

The plans do not just stop here, as with further expansion of TCUL, will come more installations of FingerTec devices.
