Biometric workforce management systems kept Olympics on budget

July 12, 2012 - 

Human Recognition Systems, a biometric identity solutions firms, recently announced that its biometric workforce management systems had been used at the largest construction project in Europe.

The London 2012 Games was the catalyst to transforming two and half square kilometers of land in east London. What was industrial contaminated land has been rapidly transformed over the past three years into London’s Olympic Park.

The main venues and infrastructure for the London 2012 Games were constructed on time and within budget by mid-summer 2011, one year ahead of the opening ceremony of the Olympic Games.

Human Recognition Systems’ MSite software helped keep the project on time and on budget by providing a workforce management solution that integrated numerous streams of data, while controlling access through hand and iris recognition, along with secure smart cards.

Neil Norman, Human Recognition Systems CEO noted that its involvement in the project was “a significant achievement and demonstrates the robust capabilities of MSite in large scale enterprise management of workforce and site access control.”

Human Recognition Systems HRS has been providing biometric identity solutions to governments and corporate customers around the world for over 10 years.

The firm’s biometric technology platforms are built to address specific identity requirements at scale, out of the box and with limited tailoring, allowing its customers to benefit from rapid deployment. The firm’s technology platforms are designed to safeguard workers, identify passengers, protect borders and inform soldiers every day.

Neil added: “We have seen a steady shift within the construction industry over recent years towards enterprise level biometric workforce management systems. This enables sites across the country to be managed centrally with the ability to report across all projects at the touch of a button. MSite has proven to add significant value through this real time operational information.”

Will biometric workforce management systems become standard at mega-project construction sites?
