Today, biometric identification company Morpho (Safran) announced, along with time-management solutions partner Infinisource, what the vendors call the market’s “most advanced biometrically-enabled time clock”. Called the iSolved NXG, the new time clock features an optional MorphoSmart CBM fingerprint sensor, bringing biometric assurance to workforce management.
The NXG is intended for the small and mid-size employer, allowing for the collection of time and attendance data. Thanks to Morpho’s MorphoSmart CBM sensors, the time clocks address the common practice of time fraud (known colloquially as ‘buddy punching’), ensuring that any given employee can only check herself in to work and not a truant or absent friend.
Todd La Fever, Infinisource’s president of technology, says, “As we designed the NXG series for iSolved, we chose Morpho for the time clock’s biometric finger-scanning capability. The MorphoSmart CBM sensor is the most sensitive and compact fingerprint reader module on the market.”
In addition to the increased fraud protection, the NXG also offers efficiency benefits to employers looking to deploy a next generation time tracking system. The clock can be set to identification mode, which operates solely on the fingerprint scans of incoming and outgoing staff, minimizing punch-in times. Additionally, the NXG can be paired with Infinisource’s iSolved human capital management (HCH) solution for additional flexibility and tracking power.
Gary Jones, Morpho’s director of Biometric Access and Time Solutions, says the MorphoSmart CBM sensors are ideal for biometric time tracking deployments. “Morpho fingerprint technology is ranked #1 for accuracy by the National Institute for Standards and Technology,” says Jones. “In addition, Morpho’s patented optical technology and biometric algorithms are acknowledged worldwide for high quality fingerprint acquisition, exceptional matching speed and accuracy, and robustness when operating in harsh or high volume conditions.”
