Open Options and ENTERTECH SYSTEMS, the official operating partner for Suprema, Inc. in U.S., Canada, U.K., Ireland and Puerto Rico, have joined to provide an integrated and reliable solution for mass adoption of biometric access control.
Open Options, an industry leader in open platform access control solutions, and ENTERTECH SYSTEMS, the official operating partner for Suprema, Inc. in U.S., Canada, U.K., Ireland and Puerto Rico, have joined to provide an integrated and reliable solution for mass adoption of biometric access control.
As a result of this partnership, Open Options' DNA Fusion access control software now integrates with Suprema's line of biometric fingerprint detection, card, and PIN devices, including BioStation T2, BioStation, BioEntry Plus, BioEntry W, and BioLite Net via ENTERTECH SYSTEMS' BioConnect application. Instead of having to manage badge records in two different systems – DNA Fusion for access control and another for the biometric templates – BioConnect is the sync between the two systems. This advantage results in allowing customers to enroll cardholders directly in DNA Fusion with information being passed to Suprema, which avoids having to enter duplicate data in two systems, saving time and labor.
DNA Fusion Version 6 – just released in March – features the expansive integration of third-party systems through Open Options FLEX API (Application Programming Interface) which provides a mechanism for external parties such as ENTERTECH SYSTEMS to develop an interface to Fusion software.
“This partnership enables ENTERTECH SYSTEMS to fulfill our mission to overcome three major obstacles to mainstream adoption of biometrics. With our BioConnect application coupled with the strength of DNA Fusion and Suprema devices, we are taking another strong step forward in reducing the cost, complexity, and user onboarding issues that have traditionally hindered biometrics adoption,” said Rob Douglas, Chief Executive Officer of ENTERTECH SYSTEMS.
“In addition to providing innovative access control solutions, Open Options develops strategic partnerships which we feel can lower the barriers to entry to newer and more sophisticated technologies such as biometrics. We are proud to be working with ENTERTECH SYSTEMS and Suprema as they are a market leader,” said Steve Fisher, Chief Executive Officer of Open Options.
Open Options products work together to provide a complete security solution including visitor management, photo ID, and more. The Open Options flagship access control software, DNA Fusion, is an open platform solution that interfaces seamlessly with other systems such as video, biometrics, and intercom. ENTERTECH SYSTEMS offers a variety of Suprema biometric technologies available for mainstream adoption and use in a wide array of markets, including critical infrastructure, healthcare, education, commercial and financial settings and more.
