Leading Public Safety Software Firm Integrates Patent-Pending Biometric System into Jail Management Platform to Prevent False Release, Improve Security, and Accurately Track Activities
ATLANTA, GA (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — M2SYS Technology, an innovator in biometric technology research and development, announced it has finalized a long-term partnership agreement with Emerald Systems, a leading provider of web based high technology applications for the public safety industry, to integrate the M2SYS patent-pending fingerprint recognition solution called Bio-Plugin(TM) into the Emerald JADE II Inmate & Facility Management System. The technology is now available to Emerald’s growing customer base of detention centers throughout the U.S.
Bio-Plugin(TM) enables software companies to quickly integrate a complete, seamless fingerprint recognition system, including a high-performance 1:N identification engine. Bio-Plugin(TM) eliminates the system dependencies, extensive development, and specialized knowledge of biometric complexities inherent to fingerprint technology SDKs. This enables software companies to remain focused on their core products, while establishing a new revenue channel with the addition of an integrated biometric component.
JADE II is the only web based JMS System in the market today that is designed for the management of inmates and correctional facilities. It provides extensive capabilities and efficiencies of operations that have heretofore been unavailable. JADE II provides full Internet and intranet (LAN) support to jail operations providing a less costly infrastructure for managing multiple facilities. The program provides a full suite of features and functions that make it easier to use, easier to navigate, and save time in the training and cross training of staff.
With the assistance of a dedicated M2SYS engineer, Emerald rapidly integrated Bio-Plugin(TM) into its platform in less than 24 hours, enabling its use for both one-to-many and one-to-one recognition. The fingerprint module allows jail officers to quickly identify new inmates and avoid duplicate booking entries, authenticate visitors, accurately dispense medications, track inmate movement throughout the facility, and verify inmate identity prior to release.
Although running independently of JADE II, users recognize the fingerprint system as a seamless component, making it very simple to learn and operate. Inmates or other persons being identified simply place a finger on the M2-S(TM) Fingerprint Reader and their information is instantly displayed within the JADE II application. As the central fingerprint database grows over time, Bio-Plugin(TM) can scale accordingly to support the rapid identification of even tens of thousands of records.
“I never thought we could have such a high-end, powerful fingerprint identification system integrated in to our jail management platform so quickly,” noted Philip Brandey, CEO of Emerald Systems. “Because it’s so easy to work with, we’ve already found uses for the Bio-Plugin(TM) system in other applications. We can now offer our customers a reliable biometrics system for secure and accurate identification while remaining focused on our core solutions, a major benefit over working with an SDK.”
“Emerald is another valued addition to our distinguished list of public safety software partners,” commented Mizan Rahman, CEO and Chief Scientist/Engineer of M2SYS. “Our Bio-Plugin(TM) fingerprint technology provides them an unparalleled flexibility to extend the reach of biometrics to their customers because there is no significant development or support required. In addition, Emerald has gained a trusted R&D partner that will continue to provide the most cutting edge biometrics solutions as well as closely support their sales and marketing initiatives.”
