Biometric access system installed across North American railways

Biometric access system installed across North American railways

MorphoTrak has partnered with Identity One as an integrator to deliver a seamless biometric access and time & attendance system to a large North American freight railway network company.

With the new integrated system, this company now enjoys improved security, as well as streamlined human resource and access control processes. From a single enrolment, 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 railways.”

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 enrolment 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 railway industry. For particularly harsh, cold conditions the OMA 520 can be supplied with a built-in heater for extremely 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 for accuracy.
