Limtech places its finger on the access control market

October 2002 Access Control & Identity Management

Fingerprint verification technology is gaining increased acceptance in today’s mainstream of business. For example, in the retail, financial and service industries, fingerprint recognition products are being applied more and more to time and attendance management.

One such product is the Biolink Biometric Access Control solution developed and manufactured by Limtech Biometric Solutions, which not only provides for restricted access for certain personnel, but also provides a full time and attendance facility for monitoring staff movements throughout the office.
