A biometric system is a technological system that uses information about a person (or other biological organism) to identify that person. Biometric systems rely on specific data about unique biological traits in order to work effectively.
- Increase security - Provide a convenient and low-cost additional tier of security.
- Reduce fraud by employing hard-to-forge technologies and materials. For e.g. Minimise the opportunity for ID fraud, buddy punching.
- Eliminate problems caused by lost IDs or forgotten passwords by using physiological attributes. For e.g. Prevent unauthorised use of lost, stolen or "borrowed" ID cards.
- Reduce password administration costs.
- Replace hard-to-remember passwords which may be shared or observed.
- Integrate a wide range of biometric solutions and technologies, customer applications and databases into a robust and scalable control solution for facility and network access.
- Make it possible, automatically, to know WHO did WHAT, WHERE and WHEN!
- Offer significant cost savings or increasing ROI in areas such as Loss Prevention or Time & Attendance.
- Unequivocally link an individual to a transaction or event.
