Local biometric product launched

September 2008 News

Accsys, a national provider of time and attendance, access control, HR and payroll management software has introduced its own, locally developed, Accsys Fingerprint Biometric Clock identification solution.

The company has various card/tag-based biometric clocking systems that work in conjunction with fingerprint technology, in the biometric verification clocks for some years. This offering has now been expanded with the introduction of the biometric only fingerprint clock solution which can run off local area network (LAN), wide area network (WAN), Internet or VPN (virtual private network) infrastructure.

The new fingerprint identification solution incorporates the Suprema reader technology and is targeted at any sized organisation or business that requires higher levels of management over time and attendance, security and access control. Suprema’s reader technology ensures that the clock reads fingerprints at 300 milliseconds. In practice this means that an employee who clocks in for work will have his or her fingerprint instantly recorded and matched to one which is already stored within the clock’s database.

Once the fingerprint is read, information is correlated and sent to the database housed within a central server, at head office for example. This one-step reporting and verification process takes place in a matter of seconds.

Teryl Schroenn, CEO at Accsys, says, “The solution has been developed in South Africa by local experts for the South African market. The new solution was showcased at Securex in Sandton, Johannesburg.”

Accsys is confident of the value the solution will present to users and has already initiated roll out to various sites throughout the country. The clock has been in beta testing for four months with excellent results. Management believes the offering strengthens its ability to meet both local and international requirements, and improves its level of competitiveness with the service provider space.

“Access control and security are critical aspects of general HR management across industries and sectors. Biometric technology is certainly a popular route for companies and is proving a worthwhile investment for businesses that have to streamline and enhance control over staff and resources,” adds Schroenn.
