Bio-SnapOn™ Effortless Biometric Software Integration….. Without the SDK

Interface our Award-Winning, Multi-Modal Hybrid Biometric Platform™ Into ANY Third-Party Software to Eliminate ID Cards, Passwords & PINs



Bio-SnapON™ is a complete biometric software system that can be instantly “snapped-on” to any Windows or web software, without any code-level development. The solution leverages our award-winning Hybrid Biometric Platform™ technology, which supports fingerprint, finger vein biometrics.

One of the most popular uses of Bio-SnapON™ is to add biometric recognition to PC-based time clock software to eliminate the costs associated with “buddy punching.”  When Bio-SnapON™ is interfaced with time and attendance software, employees must scan their fingerprint, finger vein to clock in or out.

Our RightPunch™ biometric time clock seamlessly interfaces with many major workforce management platforms, including Kronos, ADP, Empower, Qqest and others.

How it works

Without Bio-SnapON (the manual process)


The host application (such as time and attendance software) uses some kind of manual input mechanism with a unique credential to identify the user. In this case, the input mechanism is a user name and password. This mechanism could also be something like a barcode/magstripe ID card or PIN.This process is not only inefficient, but also carries the risk that the credential could be easily lost or stolen.
With Bio-SnapON™ (using fingerprint ID)
To replace the manual input mechanism with fingerprint identification:


Step1:  Install Bio-SnapON and have the user scan his/her fingerprint 3 times consecutively.The user’s unique credential will be stored with the fingerprint template.

Step2:   After the user has been enrolled, he/she simply scans a single fingerprint to be identified.


Step3:  After a user’s fingerprint is scanned, the Bio-SnapON engine matches the print and sends the associated credential to the host software. The host software then performs the appropriate action, such as clocking the user in or out.


Bio-SnapON PopupNotification

Pop-up notification Window

Administrators have the option of showing a pop-up window above the system tray after each fingerprint scan.  If this option is enabled, a message will appear indicating whether or not the user was successfully identified.

Bio-SnapON feedback

Visual feedback mechanism

When new users are enrolled into the system, a dialog box shows the actual fingerprint image.  An image quality scale also provides feedback to ensure that high quality data is being fed into the fingerprint software.  The visual feedback mechanism can also be displayed during subsequent fingerprint identification attempts, or it can be kept hidden.

Bio-SnapON administrative console

Comprehensive administrative console

Administrators can configure the Bio-SnapON system settings through an intuitive console.  Bio-SnapON offers a full-featured set of administrative controls allowing for capabilities such as: LAN/WAN configuration, multi-scan enrollment/identification, choice of three interface protocols, identification log, advanced keyboard settings, appearance customization, and security.


Multi-application communication (SSO Lite)

Unlike competing products, Bio-SnapON allows you to store multiple ID credentials and application configurations under a single fingerprint template and user account. This means that users can enroll different passwords, PINs, etc. under a single fingerprint, but associate them to individual applications.


Fingerprint biometrics is being used in a wide variety of industries for many different purposes. Here are a few examples:
POS: Control payroll accuracy and transaction overrides by requiring
employees to login with a fingerprint scan.
Schools: Interface with lunch line POS, library, and SIS software to create
efficiencies , increase revenue, and protect student interests.
Workforce management: More accurately manage employees and save up to 4% of annual gross
payroll budgets by eliminating “buddy punching” into PC-based time clock software.
Check cashing: Reduce fraud and protect assets with customer fingerprint
authentication within check cashing software.
Membership Management: Member-based establishments (e.g. fitness clubs) can increase
profitability, improve convenience, and eliminate problems with lost or stolen ID cards.
