Should all Micro-Credit Banks Use Fingerprint Biometrics Banking Technology?

Nobel Laureate Professor Muhammad Yunus

Perhaps foreshadowing a future shift for micro-credit banks across the globe to start using biometrics for customer identification, we distributed a News Release today announcing that ASMAB, a micro-credit bank in the country of Benin, has started to use fingerprint biometric banking technology for customer identification. The genesis for ASMAB’s decision to start using fingerprint biometrics was the widespread fraud and corruption that plagued their business, specifically customers falsifying their identities. These problems were undermining customer confidence in their process so ASMAB (with help from HPC Informatique, a technology solutions provider) decided to incorporate fingerprint biometrics to identify customers, eliminating fraud and corruption in their system and helping to secure consumer confidence.

Headquartered in the Western African capital city of Cotonou, Benin, ASMAB is modeled after the micro-credit Grameen Bank in Bangladesh, pioneered by Nobel Laureate Professor Muhammad Yunus to lend money to the poor facilitating socio-economic development, encouraging savings, and fighting loan shark corruption. Expectations are high that biometrics will help to increase security and decrease fraud in the system restoring customer confidence and building trust. We will be sure to report back at a later date with an update on how the deployment is going and if it is meeting ASMAB’s expectations.

Micro-credit banks have sprouted up all over the globe to help provide low income citizens the chance to borrow money on safe and secure terms. Can we expect to see others follow suit and adopt biometric identification for their customers? You can be sure that after news breaks of ASMAB’s efforts, other micro-credit banks may begin to explore this technology too.

 

@M2SYS Partners with RedPrairie to Offer PC-based Biometric Time Clocks for Employee Time and Attendance

A biometric time clock for labor tracking, preventing time theft and lowering costs.

RightPunch™ PC-based biometric time clock

Today M2SYS announced another partnership to broaden the reach of RightPunch™ a PC-based biometric time clock designed as an affordable alternative to a wall mounted time clock or a way to augment exist time clocks. We are proud to say that RedPrairie Corporation, a leader in enterprise workforce management software and labor tracking solutions that improve employee performance will now offer the RightPunch™ biometric time clock as a complement to their existing workforce optimization tools.

Many companies are already using the RightPunch™ biometric time clock and realizing the benefits after switching from paper time sheets, non-biometric time clocks or outdated time and attendance systems. Among the long list of benefits that a PC-based biometric time clock can bring to a company seeking to lower costs, raise employee productivity and maximize return on investment with a workforce management application the following are important benefits for companies to consider that seek to control labor costs:

  • Increased employee productivity by eliminating time theft and speeding up punch times.
  • Strengthened security and efficiency over ID cards or personal identification numbers (PINs).
  • Reduction of payroll inflation and payroll error rates.
  • Ensuring compliance with labor tracking laws by establishing a concrete audit trail of punch activity.
  • Offline punch capture and schedule enforcement to ensure accurate data and compliance in cases of network loss.

M2SYS has developed a customized version of RightPunch™ that interfaces with RedPrairie’s workforce management platform and communicates with RedPrairie time and attendance software to seamlessly submit stored punches, enforce schedule restrictions and provide access to employee self service features. RightPunch™ also has an optional touch screen interface allowing it to run on kiosks or terminals that can be mounted to the wall just like a traditional time clock. Under the terms of the partnership, RedPrairie will market and resell the RightPunch™ biometric time clock to its customers and prospects.

We are excited for the future of PC-based biometric time clocks and the benefits they can bring to companies seeking to fortify their workforce management software solutions. Please contact us with comments or feedback on this partnership or any other questions about our RightPunch™ solution.
