Fingerprint
Fingerprint Technology White Paper  
Fingerprint matching is a widely used biometric technology because of its ease of use, non-intrusiveness and reliability. The article starts by discussing two main algorithm families commonly used to recognize fingerprints: minutia-based and pattern-based matching. These two methods evaluate fingerprint images in different ways; both methods’ advantages and disadvantages are compared to each other. FingerTec’s continued research and development work in fingerprint matching has led to a more reliable and efficient biometric technology, the FingerTec solution. Thus, the article will also explain the method applied in FingerTec solutions, minutia-based matching, as well as documenting the overall algorithm performance.

Face Recognition
Face Recognition Technology White Paper  
Face recognition is an increasingly important biometric authentication technology because of its aptness in various applications (notably law enforcement and security systems), its tokenless, contactless nature and the maturity of the digital camera technology with competitive prices. The article begins by discussing two main face recognition algorithms; principal component analysis (PCA) in 2D face recognition, and the four modules used in 3d face recognition. A comparison is then made before the article continues by explaining the FingerTec face recognition algorithm technology that combines both 2D and 3D techniques. The algorithm performance is then analyzed at the end of the article.

Schematic Diagram
Schematic Diagram of FingerTec  
The FingerTec solution encompasses time attendance and access control functionalities via biometric and card technology. The schematic diagram explains the main processes of FingerTec hardware. The data is captured and sent to the core board via its microprocessor. The hardware’s SD RAM saves and verifies this data before sending its results to the main control unit (MCU). The results are then used to output commands to the hardware. The device connects to computer via TCP/IP, RS232, RS485, WiFi, GPRS or USB flash disk. Users can setup unique attendance calculation rules or handle access control by using FingerTec TCMS V2 or Ingress software. Software expertise can use BioBridge SDK or Webster SDK to develop their own PC-based or Web-based solution.

Hotel Management
Managing Hotel Employees Effectively
Human resources are a crucial part of managing the hotel industry. As such, the article begins by listing a few of the issues in the hotel industry, mainly the need to adopt an automated, foolproof attendance system that streamlines the process in one centralized server. Biometrics is then explained as an effective solution to curb time theft by eliminating buddy punching, as well as to reduce overall staff absenteeism, turnover and tardiness. Conclusively, FingerTec’s TCMS V2 is then used to exemplify how automated attendance systems can increase payroll calculation efficiency by automating processes and standardizing reports while centrally managing employee data from headquarters.

Highlighting The Importance of TIME ATTENDANCE SYSTEM in the Higher Education Industry for Students
Education plays a major role in our lives and when it comes to higher learning institutes, such as colleges and universities, it is very important to attend each and every class for students to be able to not only learn the entire syllabus, but in the case for most higher learning institutes, the more classes you attend, the higher the chance of being able to sit for your final exams, which in turn determines your final grade for graduation. Absenteeism in the higher education industry is not a new issue, it’s been practised by students for years yet the lax attitude of authority in handling abseentism could lead to disastrous impacts on the students themselves, their families and the image of the school in general.

Staff Management in Restaurants - Issues in Tracking, Scheduling and Other Aspects
In the country, the industry’s job growth outpaced the nation’s overall economy in 13 consecutive years from 2000 to 2012, proving its ability to sustain itself even during periods of economic recession. The restaurant industry is projected to employ 13.1 million people (roughly 10% of the U.S. available workforce) in 2013 and market trends predict that it will continue to rise by 9% over the next decade. The previous statistics are also indicative of global trends in the food & beverage industry, particularly ‘full-service’ (conventional) and ‘quick-service’ (fast-food) restaurants, and managing the large number of employees involved often implicates the same, universal issues that plague other industries.

Safeguarding the Privacy of Patients’ Data in the Healthcare Industry through Access Control
Prior to the introduction of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), there never existed a set of security standards or general requirements for protecting health information in the healthcare industry. At the same time, new technologies were steadily evolving and the healthcare industry have started to move away from paper processes by relying more on the use of computers to pay claims, answer eligibility questions, provide health information and conduct a host of other administrative and clinically based functions. For example, in order to provide more efficient access to critical health information, covered entities are using web-based applications and other “portals” that give physicians, nurses, medical staff as well as administrative employees more access to electronic health information.
