Innovise and FaceID Biometrics collaborate to bring “cutting-edge” technology to FM sector

Innovise Software and FaceID Biometrics have announced a channel partnership that’s designed to add “cutting-edge face recognition technology” to the former’s existing biometric portfolio.

An alternative to fingerprint and finger vein identification, face recognition technology generally provides a faster, more secure way to confirm employee identity and attendance. Integrating with Innovise’s workforce management solution designated Timegate, this new collaboration will allow Innovise’s customers increased choice and the opportunity to both use and benefit from the very latest biometric technology.

Innovise Software’s managing director Graeme Hughes has explained the careful due diligence that resulted in the selection of FaceID Biometrics as the company’s facial biometric partner of choice. “The Timegate solution is a business-critical tool upon which our customers rely,” stated Hughes. “Those same customers demand reliability and premium products and services from us, and rightly so. As such, we spend a great deal of effort as a business in vetting suppliers and partners. We need them to focus on quality in the way that we do. In FaceID, we have found a partner who we believe will match the high quality, performance and reliability of Timegate. We look forward to a successful future together.”

FaceID’s Dual Sensor technology provides 3D image performance, giving businesses a secure and accurate visual record in less than one second per transaction.

On the new technology and the agreement that will see FaceID Biometrics contribute to the capabilities of Timegate, FaceID’s managing director Stuart Worthington informed Risk Xtra: “FaceID was first to market with its patented, embedded Dual Sensor algorithm. It continues to maintain its leadership position, being recognised as one of the best performing systems on the market today. This new agreement with Innovise is key to our strategy of partnering with software companies who are leaders in their sector. Teamed with Timegate, which we feel is the FM sector’s leading workforce management solution, this certainly is an exciting partnership.”
