    Biometric registration

    Hi

    Dose anyone have any experience using a biometric (fingerprint) registration system with their MIS system (preferably CMIS).

    We would like to investigate it - but are finding it difficult to find anyone with prior experience in the field.

    Thanks

    it'll be slow, unwieldy, unreliable and as noted will be unpopular.

    And that's only if you or your supplier can get the damn thing to work with your MIS in the first place.

    Don't forget to search the ICT Register too.

    We have a biometric reader for our library software and when it does work, about 5% of the time I end up having to clean off all sorts of bodily secretions off it.

    Re: Biometric registration

    I've just been asked about this very subject to cover the library, entrances to the school, a cashless canteen, and registration.

    Biometrics in schools do not contain details of the whole fingerprint but works by taking measurements of the print which is supposed to stop the fingerprint being reconstructed.

    Parents that object could be offered the use of smartcards instead and all biometric data should be destroyed when the student leaves the school.

    Thats about all the info I have but I believe BECTA have a guidline for the subject.

    Re: Biometric registration

    We experimented with Fingerprint readers back in the day too.. Have to agree with Phil about the parental backlash and everyone else about the high maintenance level..
    For some reason that no-one can explain the readers get very very dirty very very quickly :P Go figure!

    Re: Biometric registration

    We trialled it, it didn't work 100% of the time.

    In my opinion its a very very bad idea usually pushed through by people who don't understand the technology.

    Re: Biometric registration

    We use Facility CMIS here and are in the process of installing 4 Biometric scanners for 6th Form registration and to replace our late book. We currently us eportal for our registration and the installers are tailoring the system to enable us to use both methods. It is not being used yet as I'm taking a lot of time writing the consent letter to keep the parents on-side so I can't comment on the reliability but the scanners look almost bomb proof.

    Not sure if I'm allowed to post the Suppliers details so apologies if I'm not, but the company I deal with is A2Z Computer Products and the sales guy is Peter Hueck 01509 633569

    Hope this helps

    Mike

    Has anyone got more upto date info on this topic since its last post in 2007.

    I am looking to see if a Biometric solution would work for registration in PE and need more information.

    Is anyone currently using this type of solution successfully with Facility CMIS?
