Interflex, part of Allegion, a leading provider in complete solutions for workforce management, time accounting and access control security solutions integrates with TBS.
Based on Microsoft technologies Interflex’s powerful IF-6040 software meets the most demanding requirements of access control and time & attendance. TBS on the other hand is a biometric manufacturer and solution provider with a complete high-end portfolio of biometric hard- and software.
Interflex had the need to extend their biometric offerings. Weighing up the pros and cons of make or buy they decided to partner with TBS, a biometrics specialist at the forefront of biometric developments. Instead of investing resources in a fast moving specialized technology, Interflex preferred to concentrate on their core know-how. With Swiss biometrics manufacturer TBS they found a one-stop shop for their biometric needs.
For the integration, a unique approach was chosen. Instead of doing it the traditional way by integrating single devices, TBS was integrated as a biometric sub-system. The main data exchange (user data as well as attendance events) is done on a system level via web services. By integrating a system rather than devices Interflex benefitted immediately from a complete biometric infrastructure and a broad variety of biometric hardware and applications, all operated by the TBS biometric-subsystem. This resulted in a truly equal partnership with each partner dealing with his own core know-how and combining it seamlessly for additional customer value. End-customers perceive it as one solution. From enrollment up to reporting everything becomes part of Interflex IF6040 management software.
For both partners the combination opend up new market opportunities which resulted in installations for Audi, BMW, Pictet Private Bank, Sparkasse Munich and Saudi Ground Services among others.
Switzerland is famous for its unmatched stability and security making it a paragon worldwide. It is TBS’ mission to bring Swiss security standards to the world. TBS offers biometric devices made in Switzerland and complete solutions for a large variety of biometric applications in access control and time & attendance. TBS 3D-Touchless finger scanning technology is worldwide unique.
