Suprema, ENTERTECH SYSTEMS announces strategic partnership with ProdataKey

Editor / Provider: ENTERTECH SYSTEMS | Updated: 6/4/2014 | Article type: Security 50

ENTERTECH SYSTEMS, the official operating partner for Suprema in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Ireland and Puerto Rico, has just announced a strategic partnership with ProdataKey, a wireless smart access control products innovator. ProdataKey will offer Suprema biometric products to their integration partners and through their network of national and international distribution channels.

ENTERTECH SYSTEMS' BioConnect application will be integrated with ProdataKey's smartaccessTM platform to seamlessly sync users between the access control panel and the biometric template. Now businesses will no longer have to manage user records in two different systems; one simple enrollment window lets them search for a user/badge and easily add biometric templates.

“ProdataKey's IP based smartaccess platform is the perfect complement to Suprema's ultra-secure biometric identity product line,” said Evan Tree, CEO of ProdataKey. “Combining our technology with Suprema biometric products and the BioConnect application means we can offer a fully integrated, end-to-end solution with unparalleled security, while enhancing ease of use and reducing cost of ownership with our long-range, mesh wireless access control platform.”

The Suprema line of biometric devices, which includes fingerprint detection, card and PIN readers as well as ENTERTECH SYSTEMS' BioConnect application, will be sold and supported through ProdataKey's authorized partner network. Applicable Suprema readers include BioStation T2, BioStation, BioEntry Plus, BioEntry W, BioLite Net and BioMini.

“Partnering with ProdataKey is a strategic step for us,” said Rob Douglas, CEO of ENTERTECH SYSTEMS. “ProdataKey is the only company offering a long-range mesh wireless network of IP devices that can control up to 1,000 doors and we believe their integration of BioConnect and Suprema biometric devices takes ENTERTECH SYSTEMS further into the growing wireless market.”

As the first truly wireless commercial access control platform on the market, ProdataKey uses a self-healing wireless mesh platform and an open architecture that will accept any standard Wiegand input and requires no dedicated PC. Easily expandable without any licensing fees, the ProdataKey wireless access control system is the most cost-effective solution on the market today.

“Fundamentally, both companies have like-minded missions – to overcome the major obstacles to mainstream adoption of security and biometric technologies,” said Douglas. “Smartaccess provides substantial savings to both end user and integrator, and allows them to scale a system to cover virtually any size of structure or campus of structures, along with outbuildings and gates. And they can do it all without installing long cable runs or digging trenches.”

ENTERTECH SYSTEMS' biometrics for IP access control systems and workforce management solutions are purpose-built to overcome the three main obstacles to mainstream adoption: cost, complexity and on-boarding users. The company's highly responsive, results-driven technical services team works with the certified partner network to ensure complete customer satisfaction.

Lumidigm fingerprint sensors track vaccination records

Lumidigm fingerprint sensors track vaccination records

Editor / Provider: Lumidigm | Updated: 3/17/2014 | Article type: Security 50

Lumidigm, part of HID Global, announced that its multispectral imaging fingerprint sensors, as part of a solution created by VaxTrac, will help to stop vaccine waste at 31 new clinics in southern Benin. The latest version of the VaxTrac system uses fingerprints of both mother and child for more robust identification. The use of fingerprints for vaccine tracking has already become very popular. In a preliminary assessment, the use of biometrics in the vaccination process has led to a 10% increase in the number of women returning to the clinics.

“The women are always asking for their baby's fingerprints to be taken,” affirms Aplogan Nicephore Ange-Guy, vaccinator in Allada, Benin. “There is a growing demand for it. They say to me, ‘Take my child's fingerprint.' They think it's cool.”

Without a proper and reliable means of identification, vaccine wastage rates are higher than 50 percent in some of the most challenging African locales. VaxTrac solves this problem with a biometric vaccination registry that is operated and managed in the field with low-cost mobile devices. Adult and child patients are identified in the registry with fingerprint sensors from Lumidigm. Returning patients can pull up their vaccination records with the touch of a finger, allowing the healthcare worker to deliver appropriate care.

The expansion in Benin, generously funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, includes full-scale, comprehensive training of new health workers and an updated version of the VaxTrac system that features reporting mechanisms for health workers and VaxTrac partners at the Ministry of Health, as well as a dashboard and other customized information features available at the clinic level.

"The new expansion is really exciting!” adds Meredith Baker, project manager, VaxTrac. “It's amazing to work with our Benin staff to grow what started as just a notebook and a fingerprint scanner into a vast network of highly trained health workers who are engaged with our project every day and are proud to say that they have a VaxTrac system at their clinic."
