ATLANTA, Ga. — M2SYS Technology, an award-winning fingerprint biometrics research and development firm, announced today that it has reached an agreement with TimeForge, a provider of web-based scheduling and time and attendance solutions to the hospitality industry. Through the terms of this agreement, TimeForge will be providing its customers with a seamless, integrated biometric identification system consisting of M2SYS fingerprint software and fingerprint readers.
TimeForge has successfully integrated Bio-Plugin(TM) WebServer, an enterprise-ready fingerprint software solution designed exclusively by M2SYS, into its web-based workforce management system, TimeForge.com. Unlike a low level fingerprint SDK, Bio-Plugin(TM) enables developers to rapidly integrate and deploy fingerprint biometrics technology without significant cost or effort. TimeForge will be providing the solution to its customers in the retail and hospitality industry who will use the biometric module for indisputable employee time and attendance calculations.
According to Anthony Presley, Founder of TimeForge, “Our customers already schedule their employees online, but many continue to use traditional time clocks to track when employees punch in and out at their business. The M2SYS biometric product allows our customers to easily track time and attendance data and compare it to existing schedules – providing important and accurate payroll information. By eliminating the need for passwords and employee identification cards, it should significantly reduce buddy punching, which will save our customers up to 5-7% of their annual payroll expenses.”
“Companies in the retail and hospitality industry are quickly recognizing the benefits of using biometrics, including the reduction of buddy punching and an overall improvement in time and attendance data accuracy,” states Michael Trader, President of M2SYS Technology. “We are excited about being chosen by TimeForge, and look forward to a long-standing relationship with them and their customers.”
