Human Recognition Systems has just deployed its MVerify student identity and attendance verification platform at the University of Sunderland’s London campus.
According to the company, the MVerify platform uses an automated process to capture and report student attendance, in accordance with Tier 4 compliance. Previously, the campus used spreadsheets for attendance with a paper-based register. Now, students can use handheld devices with integrated fingerprint sensors to verify their identity.
In addition, says the company, MVerify automated the capture of document data from student passports and visas.
“MVerify is assisting the University of Sunderland London Campus not only from an educational, but also an operational perspective. Document automation and attendance capture is delivered in a single package, with the added convenience of integrating with the university’s existing systems,” Jon Busby, Business Development at HRS said. “Our cloud-based platform removes the costs often associated with internal infrastructure and provides the university with a real-time overview of student registration and attendance. The University of Sunderland is clearly leading the way in its adoption of the solution and we look forward to extending the benefits to additional educational institutions seeking to make similar efficiencies.”
HRS also implemented the same system at the higher education division of UK training provider, QA.
Reported previously, the company recently completed a significant deployment of a facial recognition system at the Edinburgh Airport. This system uses passive facial recognition technology to track and measure the flow of people, and is intended to help reduce wait times and bottlenecks in the airport.
