Biometrics solutions provider Ideco releases access management app

September 15, 2015 - 

Ideco announced it has launched an app in cooperation with its Electronic Visitor Identity Management (EVIM) solution that simplifies visitor access management.

EVIM is a mobile data capture and fingerprint scanning device that offers improved security with a digital visitor register by capturing, registering and verifying all data in real time with the National Centre of Certified Identities (NCCI).

“This is a fantastic opportunity for gated communities and organisations to implement visitor management within their existing access control systems,” said Ideco managing director Marius Coetzee “At the same time, security at access points can now provide truly effective access control.”

More and more business parks and residential estates are using Ideco’s EVIM solution to improve access security and improve the overall effectiveness of existing services.

In addition to improving the visitor handling process, EVIM also reduces the risk for criminal behaviour associated with identity fraud and provides improved accountability.

“With the same login details as the EVIM portal, authorised residents can now login into the Android app and create appointments from their telephone contact list,” said Coetzee. “Once they have selected the contact, date and time for the meeting or visit, the app will create the appointment in their calendar. The EVIM app also provides a function to update your profile details and change your password.”

The EVIM app can now be downloaded for free on Google Play Store.

Previously reported, Ideco Biometric Security Solutions will be presenting ‘Biometrics: Creating certainty through identity’ at the Fujitsu World Tour, which is expected to be attended by more than 10,000 information and communication technology (ICT) experts from across the globe.
