Biometric Time and Attendance: New Cloud Based Software For Managing Multiple Departments

Biometric Time and Attendance: New Cloud Based Software For Managing Multiple Departments

MinuteHound Cloud Based Attendance Software

New York, NY (PRWEB) October 02, 2013

Businesses all over the United States are looking for money-saving solutions without sacrificing productivity or efficiency. Through a combination of factors, including timecard fraud, inefficient payroll reporting and inaccurate data entry, among others, firms lose more than an estimated $ 148 billion every year. In fact, “buddy punching” and schedule exceptions alone cost the average business roughly five percent of its total payroll (according to the American Payroll Association).

The MinuteHound system consists of a set of fingerprint scanners and a software suite designed to work together in order to gather employee timecard information. The system is job-description neutral because every employee is expected to clock in and out using his or her fingerprint. The scanners are plug-and-play, so there is little, if any, training cost involved. The employee simply swipes a fingerprint when arriving or leaving work for any reason. The employees’ fingerprint data is not stored on the scanners themselves, nor on the computers to which they are connected, so there is zero chance the system will compromise the employees’ identities or fingerprints. MinuteHound has 128-bit encryption technology built into the system, and the program fragments the fingerprint data into four packets. Then, it sends each packet to a separate server in a different location.

MinuteHound’s new cloud-based software allows managers and others responsible for managing timecard data to access it from any computer that is connected to the internet. Its advanced protocols even send an email or text message to the appropriate party when an employee arrives late or leaves early from an assigned shift. Both of these are distinct advantages in today’s global marketplace because managers and payroll specialists have instant, real-time access to the information. Possible savings from these features include cutting unneeded overtime costs and not losing productivity because of delays in calling in extra help when it’s needed. The system also saves paper and is environmentally friendly.

The MinuteHound Biometric Fingerprint System works with a company’s existing computers, so the startup costs are minimal: According to the company’s website, each punch clock costs $ 99.95, and each site only requires one scanner. The system is flexible, and the company claims it can collect and collate data for 50,000 employees or more. MinuteHound has such confidence in its product that it offers round the clock technical support at no charge. The company also has a money-back guarantee and promises to cover return shipping costs if the products are returned.

Eastern Oklahoma District Library System Adds 10 Early Literacy Stations to Its Children’s Libraries

Chester, PA (PRWEB) October 22, 2013

Eastern Oklahoma District Library System (EODLS) has acquired 10 of AWE’s Early Literacy Station™ touchscreen computers. The Early Literacy Station is a comprehensive educational solution loaded with over 60 educational software titles for kids ages two to eight. The Early Literacy Station offers children a safe, standalone computer not connected to the Internet that is age-appropriate, engaging, and academically relevant for children. It is designed to support school readiness and technology access while making learning exciting and engaging.

EODLS received the 10 Early Literacy Stations through the Children in Poverty Computer Grant 2013 from the Oklahoma Department of Libraries in conjunction with the Institute of Museum & Library Services. All 15 EODLS branches now have at least one unit for use by the public.

The Early Literacy Station’s educational software covers seven curricular areas: reading, math, science, social studies, writing, arts and music, and reference. The system is designed to attract and educate toddlers through early elementary school ages. Many of the software programs contain disguised learning activities that expand the child’s experience through games and extension activities.

The programs on Version 10 of the Early Literacy Station include: La Casa de Dora, SpongeBob SquarePants Typing, Giggles Kids My Musical World/ABCs and 123s, Kid Pix 3D, Math Doodles, Know Your USA, Sesame Street, Speakaboos interactive storybooks, and World of Goo.

The Early Literacy Station has an imaginative interface that encourages exploration by readers and pre-readers alike. Since it is a self-contained computer, the need for adult intervention and technical support is greatly minimized.

“The Early Literacy Station is an invaluable resource for our toddlers to 5th grade students,” says Margaret Collins, local branch manager. “The kids are having fun, and many times they don’t know they are learning!”

Awareness Technologies Releases Additional Data Loss Prevention Features

Awareness Technologies Releases Additional Data Loss Prevention Features

Westport, CT (PRWEB) June 26, 2013

Awareness Technologies, Inc. (ATI), the only provider of Complete Insider Threat Security On Demand, today announced it has released an advanced Windows Client with robust new Data Loss Prevention (DLP) features. With InterGuard’s patented Single Agent architecture, organizations can now monitor, discover, and prevent data loss and leakage in Webmail attachments – such as Gmail, and Yahoo Mail – as well as monitor and record Skype messages. The new upgrade, which is free to ATI’s current DLP customers, further sets the bar for organizations and resellers looking for complete data leakage prevention.

InterGuard’s popular end-point security suite includes Data Loss Prevention, PC & mobile device monitoring, web filtering, and lost laptop recovery. The new enhancements for DLP now include the ability to scan Webmail attachments for File Type and Alert Words in the attachment’s content. This is significant because prior to this release, Webmail attachments could not be scanned by traditional appliance and software-based DLP solutions. Using InterGuard’s unique endpoint architecture, an organization’s security team can now block and/or report data transfers for computers, whether on or off network. InterGuard’s tiny stealth client, which is always on and working, will prevent the movement of protected file types and sensitive content even if the computer is not connected to the Internet.

According to Brad Miller, CEO of Awareness Technologies, “Unlike appliance-based DLP solutions, InterGuard’s end point security suite works both on and off network as well as if not connected to the Internet.”

There are more than 450 million users of Google’s Gmail. In the past six months, more than 60 million Microsoft customers have converted from Hotmail to Besides the potential personal use of Webmail by employees, many companies are now migrating their corporate email to a cloud-based solution, and adopting cloud- based storage and apps such as Google Docs. Webmail presents a risk of data loss from behind the corporate firewall because employees can easily send large files with potential confidential company information. Users with company laptops also present a threat when they move off the corporate network. While a company can easily monitor attachments in traditional corporate email clients, webmail monitoring has long been a problem. Now organizations can monitor attachments sent by an employee’s Webmail as easily as they can those in Exchange or other desktop email clients.

Awareness Technologies is the pioneer in Unified Insider Threat Prevention. Awareness Technologies’ true cloud-based service is easily available and affordable for businesses of any size. Awareness Technologies uniquely protects users at the endpoint by offering multiple best-in-class technologies including PC and Mobile device monitoring, Web Filtering, Data Loss Prevention and Laptop Recovery, through one tiny agent download and one control console.

Awareness Technologies was named one of the Top 20 Cloud Security Vendors in 2011 by CRN and is a member of the Ingram Micro Managed Services and Cloud Computing Seismic program, which offers education, training, and vendor support. Awareness Technologies has been named to the Deloitte Technology Fast 500, Inc. 5000, and Software 500 lists. Awareness Technologies’ consumer product, WebWatcher for PCs, is the most recent winner of PC Magazine’s Editors’ Choice for Web Monitoring.

Edulang launches E.C.E. ?Edulang Certificate of English?, the first 100% online English Test.

Edulang launches E.C.E. “Edulang Certificate of English”, the first 100% online English Test.

Paris, France (PRWEB) March 15, 2012

To find a job or pursue higher education abroad, it has now become necessary for all non-native English speakers to certify their level of English. Today, these individuals are required to travel to a remote test site on a fixed date and pay a fee of upwards of 200 USD. This sector of activity represents more than 2 billion dollars in revenue per year worldwide, and yet due to its current requirements, only 20 million people have the means to afford such English tests.

“Edulang turns every computer connected to the internet into an examination center, available 24/7, and secured by webcam surveillance. We seek a potential market of 450 million people worldwide who do not have the resources to prove their English proficiency.” says Edulang’s President, Michel Nizon, whose company also distributes high quality, year-long English courses starting at 1 USD with 50% of the “Pay What You Want” proceeds donated to the humanitarian organization, Room to Read.

How it works?

This two-hour test consists of two major parts, listening and reading, each consisting of 100 questions. Before and after the examination, the examinee is required to be photographed via a webcam. Then, throughout the two-hour test the webcam continues to take a number of random photos to assure the continued and sole presence of the examinee.

Once the test is finished, an option to create an Edulang Certificate of English paper document will appear and the examinee can choose one of the photos taken during the test to appear on their certificate, or they can print their own version, however Edulang does not certify this latter version. Examinees thus receive a TOEIC®-equivalent score and can request an Edulang-certified certificate in the mail. Finally, it is worth noting that Edulang has an exclusive license for webcam-surveyed English examinations from a patent registered by Ness Access.
