Biometrics Provides Secure Access And Workforce Management For Airport Caterers

Ingersoll Rand Security Technologies : 14 February, 2011  (Application Story)
Serving numerous airports within the UK, airline catering company takes Interflex access control system from Ingersoll Rand to enable effective time and attendance for the company employees as well as meeting stringent airport security requirements through the use of fingerprint based biometric access control
One of the world’s largest providers of airline catering and provisioning services has recently installed a new access control system to control access to its sites and effectively manage its workforce.  The Interflex access control and time and attendance system, from Ingersoll Rand Security Technologies, is currently being used at its Heathrow, Stanstead, Luton and Newcastle facilities with a plan to roll out across all its operations at 16 airports in the UK.  



With on-going risks of terrorism and heightened airport security, this major Airline Service provider wanted an access control system which would improve site security and track staff and visitors on site. The system needed to be able to capture real-time employee data, by monitoring attendance, absence and time-keeping.  At the same time, it needed to be flexible and adaptable, tailored for each different facility, but with the ability to generate a single ID card so staff could access multiple sites.



To solve this complex brief for 1,500 employees, biometric handreaders were installed at all locations linked to Interflex IF-6020 software. This offers real-time tracking and the generation of accurate roll-call and muster lists.  Employee time and attendance is controlled using a biometric clocking-in system which provides a secure and accurate way of monitoring working hours, without the need for time cards or passwords and thereby guaranteeing 100% payroll accuracy.



The IF-6020 software feeds back activity and safety information from each site to the main server.  Interflex card terminals have also been installed on internal doors throughout the head office and staff issued with photographic ID cards to control access to secure areas and monitor movements.
