Thinking Software integrates ievo fingerprint readers with time and attendance software


Thinking Software has integrated its Rota Horizon software with fingerprint readers from ievo.

“Our Rota Horizon software connects directly to the new ievo SQL database for data on readers, employees and their ‘fingerprint recognised’ events to generate the required time and attendance data,” David Hambidge, Thinking Software’s business development manager explained. “Rota Horizon will read the events from this database irrespective of the type of hardware being used at the back end, and then the front end provides all the normal, powerful, functionality that Rota Horizon provides.”

Approved earlier this year by the UK’s Centre for the Protection of National Infrastructure (CPNI), ievo ultimate fingerprint readers, which have an IP65 rating, use an advanced sensor which employs multispectral imaging (MSI) technology to scan and capture data.

Using multiple light sources, MSI analyzes the skin’s surface of the skin and the data points from the subsurface level (up to 4mm deep) of a finger. The use of different light sources enables the scanner to penetrate levels of moisture and debris found on the skin to read data points underneath it.

“The integration provides organizations with a highly cost-effective solution for time and attendance data acquisition for health and safety, payroll and other HR purposes,” said Keri Feeney, ievo central regional manager. “The information starts to flow in as soon as the fingerprint readers are activated and continues to track staff attendance for whatever purpose the organization requires – managing flexi-time schemes, holiday planning, conformance with the European Working Time regulations, production of payroll information and forecasts etc – resulting in reduced costs and increased efficiency.”
