Fulcrum (News - Alert) Biometrics, a premier international biometric technology provider and system integrator, has introduced FbF Timeclock, a new desktop biometric time and attendance system developed in partnership with Legiant, a major player leader in workforce management software.
The newly launched FbF Timeclock has been built on the Fulcrum Biometric Framework, which is a collection of reusable biometric components that can be rapidly assembled to deploy customized biometric-enabled web services and applications.
The organizations, owing to the seamless integration of FbF Timeclock with Legiant Timecard software, are enabled to quickly and cost-effectively deploy desktop biometric punch clock software that works with simple USB fingerprint scanners.
Simply by placing a finger on the scanner, an employee, who is enrolled in the Legiant system, can punch in or out. By using the FbF BioServer, Fulcrum's fast and highly accurate fingerprint identification server, the employee's identity is verified and the employee's information is logged in Legiant's enterprise time and attendance software.
Because the cost of deploying each FbF Timeclock is so affordable, the FbF Timeclock is especially useful for remote offices having as little as one or two employees.
"With today's globalized and highly mobile workforce, many companies require a more flexible, scalable and accurate way of logging time and attendance," Ken Nosker, president of Fulcrum Biometrics, said. "With FbF Timeclock we combined Fulcrum's expertise in biometric identification and application development with Legiant's expertise in workforce management to create a system that is feature-rich, fast and cost-effective to implement, easy for IT to support and offers the high degree of accuracy only biometrics can provide."
"Many organizations understand the benefits of biometric solutions, but finding an affordable, enterprise-class time and attendance system with biometrics can be difficult," Rod Crane, CTO of Legiant, said. "By partnering with Fulcrum Biometrics, Legiant can meet the needs of organizations that were previously unable to take advantage of biometrics to eliminate buddy-punching."
In related news, Fulcrum Biometrics has signed a reseller agreement with UPEK to resell a wide range of biometric fingerprint readers and modules, including the new EikonTouch USB fingerprint reader product line.
