Iris ID has enhanced the utility of its IrisTime iT100 terminal through a new partnership with Manusonic. The IrisTime iT100 is designed primarily for timekeeping applications, while Manusonic is a Canadian developer of time and attendance software.
Under the new arrangement, Iris ID will integrate Manusonic’s software into the IrisTime iT100 to provide customers with a more comprehensive suite of timekeeping features. Organizations will be able to use the sign-in information from the terminal to coordinate payroll, and to facilitate other accounting and human resources activities.
The iT100 itself uses dual iris and facial recognition readers to biometrically verify the identities of employees when they clock in at work. The system is fully contactless, and can recognize people at a distance of two feet, even if they are wearing masks or protective goggles.
The terminal also runs on an open-source Android platform, which makes it easy for other developers to build their own custom applications. Both companies cited that flexibility and interoperability as primary factors motivating their new agreement.
“We offer our customers bespoke time and attendance solutions, adapting our software to accommodate their specific requirements,” said Manusonic President Dan Papakonstantino. “With the iT100’s simple integration, we stay true to what we see as an important business differentiator.”
“Manusonic’s dedication to conforming to a customer’s needs– not the other way around – fits perfectly with our view of the IrisTime iT100, an accurate, affordable and contactless solution for small to enterprise organizations,” added Iris ID Global Sales and Development VP Mohammed Murad.
The iT100 terminal already offers support for the TimeTerminal app from Information Controls. Iris ID launched IrisTime back in September, and later hired a new North American Director of Sales for Workforce Management to help attract new customers. IrisTime also took home the prize for “Best Facial/Iris Recognition” solution at the 2020 ASTOR Awards in December.
