With the new integrated system, this company now enjoys improved
security, as well as streamlined human resource and access control
processes. From a single enrollment, an employee’s secured biometric
record is distributed for access control, time & attendance and
compliance applications. In harsh industries such as this, only the
highest performance biometric technology is effective due to the
condition of workers’ fingerprints.
“This seamless integration has achieved a very high return on
investment and a high-level of user acceptance, in an industry where all
other competitor fingerprint devices failed,” explains Gary Jones,
Director of the Biometric Access & Time Solutions Business Unit.
“Properly deployed, biometric technology can offer a rapid return on
investment, increased security and improved workflow efficiency,”
says David Smith, president and CEO of Identity One. “One of our
areas of expertise lies in biometric solutions specifically designed for
More than 250 Outdoor
MorphoAccess® 520 (OMA 520) biometric readers were
deployed across the continental United States over a 6 month period.
This easy to maintain and operate solution includes custom web-based
enrollment at over 70 locations and deep integration into existing human
resource and payroll systems. Tough and sturdy, with an IP65
weatherproof rating, the OMA 520 is ideal for the railroad industry. For
particularly harsh, cold conditions the OMA 520 can be supplied with a
built-in heater for extreme low temperatures.
When other fingerprint readers fail, Morpho biometric technology is able
to capture and match even the roughest fingerprints. Morpho is the most
trusted provider of biometrics for access and time with proven success
in more industries and tougher environments than any other reader.
Morpho fingerprint technology is rated #1 by NIST

Enterprises have been using both Big Data and virtualization for years. Until recently, however, most enterprises have not combined the two. Big Data's demands for higher levels of performance, the ability to control quality-of-service (QoS), and the ability to adhere to SLAs have kept it on bare metal, apart from the modern data center cloud. With recent technology innovations, we've seen the advantages of bare metal erode to such a degree that the enhanced flexibility and reduced costs that cl...
