Swiss biometrics firm Touchless Biometric Systems AG has installed 120 TBS 3D terminals units at Umm Al-Qura University in Mecca, Saudi Arabia as a biometric time and attendance system for over 3,000 employees.
Umm Al-Qura University was seeking a user-friendly time and attendance system that could securely and intelligently manage its 3,000 users, display in Arabic language, and effectively handle “critical fingerprints”, such as thin skin resulting from diabetes, high pigment skin, and fingers decorated with henna.
Based on these requirements, the university eventually selected TBS’s touchless technology, which uses a non-intrusive capturing process.
The technology is able to produce strong identification results without compromising security levels and maintaining high acceptance threshold for critical fingerprints.
TBS partner Business City successfully implemented a 120-unit 3D solution in the various buildings of the university.
“TBS made employees attendance headache history in our university,” said Dr. Fahd Al-Zahrani, dean of IT department at Umm Al-Qura University.
The company has previously provided biometric solutions, including access control and time and attendance, for over 30 government organizations in the Middle East.
TBS’s 3D Touchless finger scanning technology captures a high quantity of fingerprint details to ensure greater security, making it ideal for higher risk, large user groups or hygienically sensitive applications.
