CTS America completes integration of M2SYS enterprise fingerprint software in less than 24 hours
Premier public safety software provider selects M2SYS fingerprint recognition technology for rapid integration and customer deployment
Atlanta, October 05, 2005 – M2SYS Technology, an innovator in biometric technology research and development, today announced it has finalized a long-term partnership agreement with Consolidated Technology Solutions (CTS America), a leader in commercial state-of-the-art, integrated public safety software, to integrate the M2SYS patent-pending fingerprint recognition solution called Bio-Plugin™ into CTS’s SmartJAIL™ and SmartRMS™ solutions. The technology is now available to CTS America’s growing customer base of public safety customers throughout the U.S.
M2SYS’ patent-pending fingerprint recognition solution called Bio-Plugin™ enables software companies like CTS America to immediately integrate into their applications a complete, enterprise-ready, scalable, seamless fingerprint recognition system, including a high-performance 1:N identification engine. Bio-Plugin™ eliminates the system dependencies, extensive development, and specialized knowledge of biometric complexities inherent to fingerprint SDK’s. This enables software companies to remain focused on their core product, while establishing a new revenue channel and providing increased customer value with the addition of an integrated biometric component.
The M2-S™ optical, USB fingerprint reader manufactured by M2SYS is engineered for use in high throughput environments where reliability and ruggedness are critical success factors. Its ergonomic design reduces human error and produces consistently high-quality images necessary for accurate fingerprint identification. The low maintenance device also works well with rough, dry or moist prints, and automatically encrypts all image data.
CTS America provides a suite of integrated, comprehensive public safety software solutions, including SmartJAIL™, a complete Jail Management System, and SmartRMS™, an extensive Records Management System. With the assistance of a dedicated M2SYS engineer, CTS America rapidly integrated Bio-Plugin™ into these platforms, providing the option for immediate deployment to its customer base. The fingerprint software module allows officers to identify new inmates and suspects, authenticate visitors, track inmate movement throughout detention centers, and verify identity prior to release.
“We had one conference call with M2SYS and the bulk of the system was completely integrated into our SmartJAIL software,” noted Jovian Rodriguez, Director of Engineering – JMS, at CTS America. “I was completely amazed at how easy it was to integrate such a complex and robust system. We had evaluated several fingerprint SDKs that would have required extensive development in addition to the burden of ongoing maintenance. Realizing the development and support of a biometrics system is well outside our core competencies, the decision to select M2SYS was an easy one.”
“As an industry-leader in public safety software, CTS America recognizes the importance of remaining focused on their core software products when evaluating the integration of new technology,” commented Mizan Rahman, CEO and Chief Software Architect of M2SYS. “By using Bio-Plugin™, CTS America avoids stretching internal resources to manage a new product component, meets key customer demands, and can concentrate on their core applications. Furthermore, CTS America can now rely on M2SYS as their strategic biometrics R&D partner to continually provide the most cutting edge fingerprint technology.”
