Biometric Login Authentication System

Biometrics

The Integral IBI Biometric Login product provides Fingerprint Biometric enabled Logins (authentication) integrated into MES (Manufacturing Execution System) systems and other shop floor supply chain applications such as Document Management, electronic Batch Record, LIMS, and ERP systems.

Many process automation applications come with a hidden cost to regulated manufacturers.

You can get it Better, Faster, and Cheaper… don’t let anyone tell you it doesn’t work that way.

In order to manage traceability and accountability within manufacturing processes, numerous in-process authentications (sign-offs/eSignatures) are required.
This compliance cost can add up. Our biometric enabled Login application turns this cost into a benefit by streamlining the process and increasing accountability and traceability while reducing the time and effort required to maintain compliance.

ROI

Issue: Lock-Outs, Typos, and Password Resets add up.

Manufacturing operators repeatedly authenticate to MES and other Supply Chain applications using usernames and passwords.

Integral Biometrics replaces passwords and addresses these issues:

  • People write down, share, miss-type, and forget User ID’s & passwords(Compliance & Security issues)
  • Password Administration is expensive and takes time
  • Factory workers are not all comfortable with keyboard
  • Ergonomic solutions like tablets or touch screens often have hard to use virtual keyboards
  • Repetitive and frustrating work
  • Mistakes can Interfere with production
  • CFR 21 Part 11 compliance generates even more logins, or designers compromise on Quality checkpoints due to their operational cost.

Features

Biometric Enabled Logins and User Authentication

Our Biometric Identity Verification System for Fingerprint based logins into Manufacturing Execution Systems and other shop floor automation systems provides fast  and simple user logins for manufacturing automation systems.  Users touch a fingerprint sensor to provide their authentication credentials.  Our system matches the user based on a fingerprint alone and provides the username and password to the integrated application.

Flexible Password Management and Integration:

Our systems can use numerous password integration methods

  1. Password Optional:
    Uses a password that is also known to the user.
  2. Biometric Only:
    Uses a system generated and integrated password that is compliant with your most rigorous password requirements.  The system generated password is never seen by a user or admin.  It ensures that password administrative overhead and security issues are not a concern for your organization.
  3. Trusted system:
    Uses a fully integrated authentication method that establishes the biometric system as a trusted authentication source for your application

Other Features:

  • Very Simple User Experience
  • Fast scalable system
  • Multi-Tenant Architecture
  • 21 CFR Part 11 and Annex 11 compliant

If you don’t see your application here, contact us to ask about what it will take to integrate the application you are using in your factory.  It usually takes 2-3 weeks for us to integrate a new application or system.  (e.g. – Document management apps, other training apps, other MES systems)

We may have integrated with your system already, but either can’t publish the product name here or haven’t been able to update just yet. Contact us and ask.

 

Biometric Enabled Electronic Signature

The Integral IBI BEES (Biometric Enabled Electronic Signature) product uses Fingerprint Biometrics to create electronic signatures that can be used as auditable independent eSignatures, or eSignatures can be synchronized in real-time with integrated applications such as Training applications like UL Compliancewire, Pilgrim, or Cornerstone.

Integral IBI BEES can be used in conjunction with a system that has its own eSignature capability or to augment systems that do not yet have CFR21 Part 11 or EC Annex 11 compliant eSignature capabilities.

Biometric eSignatures eliminate paper-based processes.
No more transcription, backlogs of training records, and trainers sitting doing paperwork instead of training.

Use our solution to make your operation efficient, accurate, instantly up-to-date, and compliant while reducing costs associated with extraneous paper, people, and processes.
