SimplyWork Fights Fraud with Iris ID IrisAccess Integrated Time Clocks

IrisAccess® is the world’s leading deployed iris recognition platform and in thousands of locations authenticating the identities of millions of persons world-wide.

Iris ID, a leading provider of iris recognition technology, and a Platinum Award Winner in the ‘ASTORS’ Homeland Security Awards Program, will showcase their iris recognition cameras incorporated into time and attendance clocks from SimplyWork, at the International Security Conference & Exposition (ISC West) in Las Vegas.

The SimplyWork biometric time clock uses employees’ iris biometrics to authenticate their identity as they begin and end work each day.

Iris ID’s IrisAccess™ iCAM R100 cameras are built into the clocks to provide a fast, accurate and non-contact method of reporting time worked.

The iCAM R100 captures images at a range of 11 to 15 inches (28-35cm).

As the iris-based SimplyWork time clock requires no contact it can be used in virtually any industry including agriculture, construction, food service and others where other biometric technology may be less accurate due to dirt and grease on employees’ hands.

Also, the iris reader has no problems with facial masks, hats or glasses that can affect the accuracy of facial recognition.

“The uniqueness of each iris means SimplyWork time clocks can eliminate a costly payroll fraud scheme known as buddy punching, in which one employee clocks in or out for a friend not on the job,” explains Mohammed Murad, vice president global sales and business development, Iris ID.

“Without a way to accurately match employees to the hours they worked, buddy punching can be a significant drain on any business’s bottom line.”

“We are very excited to be an OEM partner with SimplyWork, they have a very robust solution in the workforce management space.”

iCAM R100 Camera: High Speed – Dual Iris capture

The iCAM R100 performs high-speed dual iris capture (both eyes captured simultaneously) and outputs high quality ISO standards compliant images.

The R100 provides an unparalleled intuitive user interface, which makes the process easier for the user and operator.

The R100 is also equipped with an orientation sensor and left and right iris capture management controls which can be selected prior to or during the process.

Mike Van Nuland, chief executive officer for SimplyWork, explained that the company researched several biometric technologies before choosing the Iris ID technology.

“Iris biometrics were head and shoulders above the others at accurately identifying people,” said Van Nuland.

“The Iris ID iCAM R100 camera helps make our biometric time clock fast, accurate and easy to use.”

“It also works with our entire customer base, from small companies to large enterprises.”

Van Nuland said the iris biometric can be used by employees to authorize time sheets without the need of a physical signature or management intervention.

Also, software in the SimplyWork time clock contains rules to flag employees consistently punching in late or taking breaks that are too long – or too short to meet labor law requirements.

Previous handheld iris recognition systems required significant cooperation and for a subject to remain completely motionless in order to capture high quality iris images.

Iris ID has developed a series of algorithms which provide the capability to capture iris images in any environment.
