Ingersoll Rand Security Technologies, a provider of security technology solutions under the brand name “Schlage,” has signed a partnership with ADI Time of Warwick, R.I., to sell Schlage Biometrics’ full product line, including F-Series and the new GT-400 HandPunch terminals.
The synergy will help increase opportunities for ADI Time resellers to provide increased solutions to their time and attendance and workforce management customers. ADI Time is a provider of cloud computing time management software services (SaaS (News - Alert)) for small-to-mid-sized businesses and divisions of large enterprises.
“To compliment our popular SaaS subscription service and licensed time and attendance software, ADI Time was seeking a strong alliance with a leading provider of biometric terminals in order to address the needs of our partner and user communities,” said ADI Time CEO John DiPippo, in a statement.
“Partnering with Ingersoll Rand provided us with both a uniquely differentiated product via Schlage’s hand geometry readers, and a direct relationship with an organization that has the size, product breadth, and industry leadership to ensure we are in the best position to delight our customers and maximize market exposure,” DiPippo added.
Both companies have been partners for over a decade for providing payroll and human relations managers with Schlage HandPunch solutions.
“They are exactly the type of partner that can help organizations achieve new levels in time and attendance and workforce management data collection by leveraging the Schlage GT-400 HandPunch reader,” said Jon Mooney, Ingersoll Rand Security Technologies general manager, Schlage biometrics, in a statement.
Usage of biometrics solutions to automate the collection of time and attendance data can reduce costly buddy punching. “Millions of people throughout the world clock in and out of work daily with a hand geometry reader. In conjunction with our software, the HandPunch delivers a payback very rapidly,” according to DiPippo.
Schlage GT-400 HandPunch terminal is a new generation of terminals created specifically for time and attendance and workforce management applications. It uses the size and shape of each employee's hand for verification. With a large LCD screen and programmable soft keys, the HandPunch GT-400 provides a conduit for employee communication right at the terminal.
Recently Ingersoll-Rand announced the formation of its new Global Healthcare Practice during an industry event.
