STAR acquired Hitachi H-1 USB Finger Vein Biometric Scanners and installed them, along with computers, at all of its facilities.
All of the organisation's staff now scan their fingers on arrival at work, and also when they leave. This information is linked into the roster and timesheet system.
“It just automatically authorises it so there’s no issue with spending time checking those sheets,” Mr Doedens said. STAR’s staff also use the system to access other payroll information including accrued sick and annual leave entitlements.
In this video: STAR Tasmania CEO, Ralph Doedens discusses how STAR Tasmania boosts disability services with Hitachi Finger Vein Scanners. (1min, 13s).
Originally designed for PC log-on or to replace computer passwords, Hitachi's PCT-KC8203 Finger Vein Biometric Scanner was first designed for PC logins and replacing passwords. It’s now integrated into a wide range of applications, from banking to health care.
The scanners are an accurate method of user authentication that eliminates the need for passwords – which can often be forgotten.
The scanning device connects to any PC via a USB port, and uses near-infrared light to read and record the blood veins within your finger, which differ even for identical twins.
Hitachi's scanning innovation now lets STAR’s workforce to log-in securely to the organisation's management systems from any of the organisation's centres.
