Suprema and Entertech Systems have announced a new technology and go-to-market strategy agreement with Brivo Systems, LLC, to offer Suprema’s line of biometric readers for Brivo’s cloud-based access control systems.
Through the partnership, Entertech System’s BioConnect applications will also be available through Brivo to help their customers with access control integrations in the second quarter of this year.
“Entertech Systems’ value-added approach of building a standard connector to our DataSync API enhances the appeal of the combined Brivo/Suprema offering by reducing the complexity and operational costs normally associated with biometric deployments,” John Szczygiel, Executive Vice President of Brivo Systems, LLC said. “We believe in basing access control authorizations on sound identity authentication. This partnership with Entertech Systems and Suprema helps us to deliver a stronger user authentication solution to our customers.”
The BioConnect application from Entertech Systems allows for Suprema’s biometric readers to be offered with “certified” access control systems such as Brivo. Instead of having to manage badge records in two different systems (one for the access control panel and another for the biometric templates), BioConnect seamlessly syncs users between these two types of systems. Using a simple enrollment window, users can search for a user/badge and add biometric templates.
“This new technology partnership between Entertech Systems and Brivo means customers can now benefit from the combined “BioConnect for Brivo” solution to easily offer Suprema biometric readers for advanced template management,” said Rob Douglas, CEO of Entertech Systems. “Our goal is to ensure Brivo customers can easily overcome the three main obstacles to mainstream adoption of biometric access control – high cost, complexity and difficult user onboarding.”
According to the company, BioConnect will be demonstrated at the security industry’s premier exhibition, ISC West held at the Sands Convention Center in Las Vegas from April 10-12. Entertech Systems will be at event, participating within the Brivo exhibition display at booth #19107 and at the Suprema/Entertech exhibition display at booth #24101.
Reported previously, Entertech Systems recently announced its Certified Biometric Partner Program for access control systems and integrators and dealers.
