Nymi to provide biometric authentication for Tulip IIoT apps
Tulip focuses on the creation of apps designed for the industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). The company adopts a no-code approach to simplify the development of apps for industrial applications.
Now, the new partnership will enable Tulip’s customers to integrate the Nymi Band’s capabilities into the development process of their apps.
“Our partnership simplifies how manufacturing systems can continue to meet their compliance and e-signing requirements whilst improving user satisfaction for workers,” explained the Vice President of Nymi, Andrew Foxcroft. “The Nymi Band provides a powerful, user-centric, secure form of biometric authentication for logins and e-signatures that is safe, secure, and simple for the manufacturing process within the Tulip ecosystem.”
Using the device in concert with Tulip’s platform will enable industrial companies to simplify instructions for complex processes and bring quality in-line.
They will also be able to enforce regulatory compliance through electronic signatures, audit logs, and automatic data collection, thus ensuring data integrity and traceability.
“Nymi helps life sciences companies maintain quality and compliance while reducing time to perform signatures,” commented Gilad Languer, industry practice lead at Tulip.
According to the executive, the technology will also make industrial working environments safer.
“Biometric authentication through the Nymi Band in Tulip apps provides a significant benefit, especially when people are gowned or handling hazardous material.”
Nymi closed a number of partnerships in 2020, with the company gradually expanding its offering towards pharmaceutical and industrial applications. For example, in January, Nimy worked with Werum IT Solutions on a smart biometric authentication tool for pharma and biotech. More recently, the company partnered with Rockwell Automation’s ThinManager to develop biometric-enabled wearable authentication solutions.
