Leading supplier of biometrically-enabled applications, Argus Global, has partnered with ievo™ to enable more secure, efficient use of fingerprint technology with its applications.

The multi-spectral fingerprint reader from ievo™ has already been integrated with Argus' CornerSafe module, for secure keysafe management, with many new projects underway.

Argus has chosen to partner with ievo™ due to the unsurpassed capabilities of ievo™ fingerprint technology. Unlike standard fingerprint readers, ievo™ multi-spectral readers are unaffected by variations in fingerprint quality due to dirt or grease; and they work in even the harshest conditions, for example in freezing temperatures, rain and direct sunlight. The fingerprint readers are ideal for environments like construction sites and are set to be used in a multi-million pound project to secure the Scottish National Arena at the Commonwealth Games in 2014.

Commenting on the partnership, Ken Farrow, Director of Argus Global Australia, says: "At Argus we only partner with biometric suppliers with proven, robust technologies that we know will meet our clients' security requirements. Many of our customers operate in high risk environments where both low FAR and fast processing are critical to a successful implementation. Unfortunately many of the standard fingerprint technologies simply don't fulfil client requirements, ievo™ does. I'm looking forward to many future installations with ievo™, across the globe."

Stuart Ging, Director for ievo™ comments, "The ievo fingerprint reader has been designed from the outset to easily integrate into established and market leading systems such as Argus Global's CornerSafe module.  Our ievo reader has an IP rating of 65, therefore providing our customers with a trustworthy biometric that is fully functional amidst harsh environments. This is imperative to our business ethos and something we clearly share with Argus Global. We look forward to ievo being represented in Argus Global's vast portfolio of high profile customers, and generating new business for both companies."
