Invixium and Credence ID partner to enhance access control and time attendance deployments

May 19, 2016 - 

Biometrics firms Invixium and Credence ID announced a partnership to dramatically improve access control and time & attendance solutions.

According to a statement by the companies, the embedded software of IXM TOUCH has been ported to the CredenceOne handheld device allowing quick device setting changes and enrollments via an intuitive interface. This new integration allows for user record interoperability between the devices whereby a user enrolled on the IXM TOUCH stationary device can be authenticated on a CredenceOne mobile device and vice versa.

Access control and time & attendance solutions can include both stationary interaction, such as a door or desktop device, and mobile interaction, such as a security officer or personnel manager, all using one common application. Organizations will also have an option to select advanced authentication methods, including fingerprint and up to 3 factors of authentication between access cards, fingerprints and PINs for added security as they transact on devices.

The partnership provides partners with the benefit of expanding their solution offerings. This will enhance any access control or time & attendance deployments as fixed and handheld devices from two different manufacturers can now be installed on the same network, using a single software application, IXM WEB.

“We did it. This is an industry-first,” says Shiraz Kapadia, CEO & President at Invixium. “We are delivering on our promise of providing simple and easy-to-use solutions to our customers at a rapid pace.”

Invixium will be reselling CredenceOne devices with IXM embedded software under Invixium Certified Products (ICP) program. The ICP program was launched in Q2 of 2015 to test, integrate and support complementary products into the IXM product ecosystem.

“We are delighted to cooperate with Invixium to bring this industry-first to market. It’s clear to us that many identification scenarios require a combination of both mobile and stationary biometric identity capabilities. Now this is available in a single integrated and certified offering,” says Bruce Hanson, President & CEO at Credence ID. “Together we co-developed and now provide a fast and convenient way to authenticate users, wherever they are, using a combination of strong authentication and a seamless end user experience.”
