MinuteHound Releases New Business Software for the Windows Biometric Framework
MinuteHound is the leading provider of biometric time and attendance utilizing cloud based-software. This latest release works alongside the Windows Biometric Framework (WBF).
New York, NY (PRWEB) April 17, 2013
MinuteHound, a longtime supplier of biometric attendance software for generations of Windows systems, now offers software compatible with the modern Windows Biometric Framework (WBF).
MinuteHound is looking into the future as versions of Windows, including Windows 7 & 8, 2008 Server RT, and Server 2012, include integrated support for biometric technology. In addition to legacy operating system support, users can now use MinuteHound’s updated software with newer Windows systems.
WBF support simply means that MinuteHound fingerprint scanner software is up-to-date and as Windows evolves to bring biometric technology to more applications, MinuteHound will evolve with it. In other words, the software continues operating as it should, and will continue doing so into the future.
As a benefit of its cloud-based architecture, MinuteHound users receive updates automatically. Supporting the specialized fingerprint scanner on a local host PC is where Windows Biometric Framework comes into play.
Any convenient PC can host the scanner. MinuteHound’s small business software is ready to support the latest Microsoft operating systems on those PCs, which may be running Point-of-Sale software, or other applications as their main function. MinuteHound fingerprint software runs in the background, and does not interfere with the system’s primary use.
The fingerprint scanner’s host computer remains secure and independent. Computers running WBF with a built-in fingerprint pad will not have their scanner affected by the MinuteHound biometric scanner, and vice-versa.
Installation of MinuteHound’s fingerprint scanner software is easy, with free U.S.-based support standing by to answer any questions. Plugging the device into an available USB port initiates the installation process.
The software relays fingerprint scans to the cloud-based management system which MinuteHound provides for a small monthly fee, typically pennies per user. It encrypts scans to a key which matches time clock scans.
The MinuteHound system includes the low-cost scanner, local support software for the scanner, and cloud-based data collection and management systems. MinuteHound servers, located in numerous locations, provide data storage and backup, constantly available system access by Internet web browser, and the latest reporting and alert features available.
Support of the Windows Biometric Framework is just another way that MinuteHound has brought their advanced technology forward, supporting the evolution of technologies such as its now flagship cloud based system.
