BIO-key International, Inc
., a company specializing in finger-based biometric identification solutions, has reportedly launched
TruDonor ID, a fully hosted identity solution designed to address the needs of the blood collection industry.
“This is a huge breakthrough not only for blood centers but for the biometric identification industry as well,” Mike DePasquale, CEO at BIO-key International, said “Offering TruDonor ID as a SaaS (News
) solution eliminates one of the biggest hurdles faced by every blood center - costly IT expenditures on equipment, staff and maintenance. With TruDonor ID, blood centers have secure [around the clock] access to their donor database on a superior computing environment supported by expert technicians.”
With TruDonor ID, blood centers of any size can now have a fast, convenient and accurate method to positively identify donors. Moreover, this new solution was launched following on earlier successes in the blood donor identification market. BIO-key's introduction of this secure Software-as-a-Service donor ID solution is said to enable an affordable, fully supported, web based solution that staff can access from anywhere and at anytime.
TruDonor ID leverages biometric identification software, and is said to accurately identify donors without their IDs. This eliminates the potential of misidentification of donors and it reduces the time and errors associated with staff validating identities and manually entering information. TruDonor ID interfaces to existing blood management platforms or can operate as a standalone identity solution.
DePasquale also said that deployment times are far shorter since it eliminates the typical implementation learning curve associated with installing a licensed software solution. He also said the newly launched solution as the first in the Identity Management Industry, a first for BIO-key and the beginning of a whole new era in the deployment of advanced security solutions including finger biometrics.
BIO-key's technology is offered directly or by market leading partners around the world.
