Credence ID and Invixium Partner to Deliver a Seamless Biometric Experience for Access Control, Time and Attendance Applications
Partners Showcase Platform at ID 4 Africa’s Annual Forum & Expo on Electronic Identity
KIGALI, RWANDA – May 24, 2016 – Credence ID, a leading provider of mobile biometric and credential reading platforms, today announced an innovative partnership with Invixium, a leading manufacturer of the most modern biometric products, at the ID4Africa annual conference. The partnership delivers a seamless user experience and dramatically improves on previous access control, as well as time and attendance solutions.
The partnership is an unprecedented win for the biometric industry as it provides partners with the benefit of expanding their solution offerings. This will enhance any access control or time and attendance deployments, as fixed and handheld devices from two different manufacturers can now be installed on the same network, using a single software application, IXM WEB.
“We are delighted to partner with Invixium to deliver a seamless biometric solution platform that meets the growing global demand. Most identification scenarios require a combination of both mobile and stationary biometric identity capabilities. Now, for the first time, we are offering the industry a single integrated and certified platform,” says Bruce Hanson, President & CEO at Credence ID. “The end result is a faster and more convenient way to authenticate users using a combination of strong authentication and a seamless end-user experience wherever they are in world.
” Based on the Android™ operating system, the embedded software of IXM TOUCH has been ported to the CredenceOneTM handheld device allowing quick device setting changes and enrollments via an intuitive interface. The integration allows for user record interoperability between the devices whereby a user enrolled on the IXM TOUCH stationary device can be authenticated on a CredenceOneTM mobile device and vice versa. For the first time, access control, time and attendance solutions can include both stationary interaction, such as a door or desktop device, and mobile interaction, such as a security officer or personnel manager, all using one common application. Additionally, organizations will now have an option to select advanced authentication methods, including fingerprint and up to three factors of authentication between access cards, fingerprints, and PINs for added security as they transact on devices.
“We did it. This is an industry-first,” says Shiraz Kapadia, CEO & President at Invixium. “We are delivering on our promise of providing simple and easy-to-use solutions to our customers at a rapid pace. Through this engineering and go-to-market partnership with Credence ID we are able to offer enterprises and industries enhanced physical security, unprecedented user convenience and accurate time & attendance capabilities.”
Invixium will be reselling CredenceOneTM devices with IXM embedded software under Invixium Certified Products (ICP) program. The ICP program was launched in Q2 of 2015 to test, integrate, and support complementary products into the IXM product ecosystem.
