BioAuthorizeET is a time and attendance monitoring system aimed at setting up a foolproof system based on the fingerprint identification technology. The system typically records details such as time of their arrival and departure apart from maintaining relevant information regarding the employees and their department, shifts, location, leaves status etc. The user-friendly device and software eliminates paperwork and time spent in tracking employees; BioAuthorizeET can also be used for related personnel administration functions such as payroll. BioAuthorizeET effectively resolves proxy entry problems common to other employee monitoring systems such as swipe cards.

The sophisticated, in-built, tamper-proof security features offer unmatched safety against system or program abuse. Even if the system is turned off completely, data is always secure.Instant Customized Reports
BioAuthorizeET ships with different kinds of reports, which are typically generated in an organization. However, the existing reports can customized to any extent and new reports could be added based on the requirement of the end user. The modules in the Management console of BioAuthorizeET too are open to customization.User Friendly Setup
BioAuthorizeET can be set up to operate in no time. An employee’s registration can be finished in less than 15 seconds. And BioAuthorizeET does not expect the client to be a 'techie'.Economical and Easy to Use
BioAuthorizeET offers an easy and economic way of organizing employee related information. It eliminates paperwork and time spent in maintaining employee details.Internet Ready Management console
BioAuthorizeET can be web-enabled to help companies monitor personnel movement across multiple locations.Integration with existing applications
BioAuthorizeET can be easily integrated into any existing application used by an organization with respect to attendance, payroll and HR. This is a great advantage to organizations already using these applications, as the HR administrators do not need to disturb their existing practices.
The software consists of three modules namely BioAuthorizeET Registration, BioAuthorizeET Time & Attendance Monitor and BioAuthorizeET Management Console.Registration Module
Employees register through this module by entering name, department and other relevant details. During registration employees are required to 'scan' their fingers on the sensor four times. The process ends when they get a message “‘xxxxx’ registered successfully”. There is also an option for taking photograph of the registering employee and display it each time he is identified.Time & Attendance Monitor
This section records and displays time of arrival, lunch break, departure and the current status of the employee. During arrival and departure employees ‘identify’ themselves through their registered finger. The finger sensor recognizes their fingerprints and records the required data. The recorded data is displayed in the Time & Attendance monitor in a color that varies with the activity - arrival or departure, for example.Management Console
This module allows administrators to manage information with respect to employees, departments, shifts, activities, leave, holidays and any other organizational activity that needs to be tracked with respect to the employees. The following are some of the reports that can be generated from BioAuthorizeET:1. Employee based Activity report
The miniature fingerprint sensor is a self-contained unit for capturing a fingerprint and communicating the digital image to a host processor via a USB interface. This small sensor is ideal for attaching to laptop computers, desktop PCs, and other PC equipment where fingerprint authentication is needed. Designed for ease of use it can read a fingerprint at any angle - even upside down. Its USB port capability makes it truly plug-and-play gaining you even easier access to Windows and the Net. It is capable of supporting security features such as the use of a challenge-response protocol to avoid playback attack when communicating with a remote server. Secure images produced by the sensor are only decrypted on a secure server. The low-cost compact fingerprint sensor incorporates precision optics, a LED light source, and a CMOS imager.Features of the Sensor

No. BioAuthorizeET itself does not limit the number of users supported. BioAuthorizeET requires 300-350 bytes per fingerprint registered. It is only limited to the capacity of the machine in which the application is installed.Can BioAuthorizeET work with a dead finger; plaster case mould of a finger or a fake fingerprint?
No. BioAuthorizeET works with live fingers alone.Can BioAuthorizeET work with a fingerprint impression lifted off a surface?
No. BioAuthorizeET works with fingerprint impressions captured by U.R.U sensors alone.Can fingerprints captured by BioAuthorizeET be used for authorized access to other systems?
Fingerprints registered by BioAuthorizeET are 128-bit encrypted (one-way irreversible encryption). This prevents misuse and unauthorized access to other systems that use fingerprints for authentication.How many fingerprints can BioAuthorizeET register for the same user?
BioAuthorizeET currently supports the registration of one finger per user. However, the options for registering multiple fingers for a user can be included in the application, if the need be.How are fingerprints stored in the BioAuthorizeET database?
BioAuthorizeET stores a fingerprint as a mathematical template. This data is 128-bit one-way encrypted. Fingerprint images are not stored in the database. This prevents abuse of fingerprint data.Can a picture of the employee be stored along with the fingerprint?
Yes. This is available as an optional feature.Can BioAuthorizeET work with more than one Fingerprint sensor for greater efficiency ?
Yes. A Dual sensor option is available.How to find more information of BioAuthorizeET?
