Suprema wins marketing award for Leicester City stadium biometrics integration, Imprivata honored
A video depicting biometric fingerprint devices as part of an access control solution provided by Suprema to Leicester City Football Club’s King Power Stadium in the UK has won the Hermes Creative Gold Award for Outstanding Video Content.
Suprema and creative partner TMF marketing have been honored with the award for a case study video on the implementation of its technology by the soccer club.
The stadium’s Head of Security Ian Coulton talks about using the system for efficient time and attendance tracking for 460 security stewards, and depicts the BioEntry W2 and other fingerprint recognition devices from Suprema being used by staff. Coulton notes the importance of being able to integrate Suprema’s technology with the stadium’s existing access control system. Ease of registration and use, the sleek look of the devices, and the ability to use biometric data from the devices in several different roles were key decision-making factors for Coulton. The “expandability” of the system going forward is Suprema’s main advantage, he says.
Johnson Controls Regional Sales Manager Damian Moore discusses the complexity of the installation to a 32,000 Premier Football League stadium, and the support provided by Suprema.
“It was great to share our story through video and now even greater to have the content honored by Hermes Awards,” says Jamie McMillen, Managing Director of Suprema Systems UK Ltd. “Hermes Award recognizes Suprema’s efforts and reaffirms our belief that customer testimonial is the best source of engaging content.”
