Fujitsu and Tidel further partnership with Palm Vein Authentication
Fujitsu Frontech North America, Inc. and Tidel Engineering LP have announced the full integration of Fujitsu’s PalmSecure biometric authentication solution with Tidel’s Revolution® series of “Closed Loop System” automated cash management products for large volume retailers.
This is not the first time that Fujitsu Frontech and Tidel have partnered. Tidel has been using Fujitsu currency handling solutions in both its Revolution and its Sentinel series products. But with Fujitsu’s PalmSecure, Tidel has further accentuates its position as a global leader in cash management and automation by setting the bar higher in terms of cash handling, management and security.
PalmSecure captures a user’s palm vein pattern by using near-infrared light. The process is non-invasive, hygienic and secure. As it is internal, it is not susceptible to changes in external conditions thus more accurate compared to other biometric solutions used by Tidel. Any palm vein pattern captured by the machine is matched with those of pre-registered users. By completely automating the cash management process, Tidel reduces errors and saves time.
“We are committed to providing real-world value to our customer, and working with Fujitsu’s PalmSecure technology gives us the chance to better deliver in a critical area: Security,” said Michael Hudson, executive vice president of Revolution Retail Systems at Tidel. “Fujitsu has been an outstanding partner by assisting with the convergence of our Revolution Series cash platform with, what we feel, is the strongest biometric security technology in the world.”
