CBM Archives has just launched a new line of customizable biometric kiosks fitted with a fingerprint scanner, camera and an optional palm scanner.
“The CBM Biometric Kiosk can be used by police and sheriff departments or other central booking facilities to fingerprint offenders or to offer applicant processing to the public,” Darrell Whitely, project manager of CBM Biometric Kiosks said. “Jails can use the device to provide inmate identity verification or even visitor checks. Probations offices can benefit from additional efficiency by allowing probationers to self-check-in such that only those requiring face-time are routed through to parole officers. Driver’s license offices can increase productivity by allowing self-service renewals. The opportunities provided by our kiosks are only limited by imagination.”
CBM Archives – a document management solution provider – says the kiosks can be fully customized, as the system includes dual monitors, a magnetic card reader, signature pad, mug shot photo camera, fingerprint scanner and a CPU.
“The world is not as simple as it once was and background checks are becoming more and more common,” Jerry Sanders, president of CBM Archives said. “We are hoping that our kiosks can improve the efficiency with which these checks occur thereby lessening their impact on the customer’s life. With shorter lines we can get them in and out without taking up too much of their valuable time. Further, with our COTS based components, we can keep costs down and keep fees reasonable. From the agency standpoint, the kiosk provides a simple, self-contained unit that allows a single staff member to service multiple customers simultaneously. CBM’s flexible pricing terms can offer budgetary flexibility by allowing for either an out right capital budget purchase or long term managed services terms that could fit within an operational budget.”
