Biometrics with PaperCut MF using Bio-Buddy


Selectec has always been one to keep their fingers on the pulse and that is no different with the latest addition to our product portfolio “The Bio-Buddy”. Biometrics is often a scary word when it is uttered in the print and MPS sphere, until now.

We have the pleasure of being able to offer the Bio-Buddy range of simple, effective and incredibly versatile biometric readers and adapters. There has always been a gap between the ability to authenticate via an RFID (swipe of an ID card for example) and a full-blown, and often expensive, cashless catering or biometric authentication system.

This is where Bio-Buddy comes in, no need for a bulky server-side software installation and a complex enrolment strategy, these great little readers give you the ability to just “plug & play” when it comes to being about to biometrically authentication to your print or MFD device.

Here’s how it works…

Plug the Bio-Buddy reader into your print device, register your fingerprint (touching the sensor three times) and then voilà, you have been registered and granted access to the print device. With the addition of any print management or secure print release system, there is an additional layer of configuration necessary but the team at Selectec are here to assist you with that. This is a simple, easy to install biometric authentication solution which will change the way your customer’s users log into their printing device.

The Bio-Buddy reader comes in two models, a 200 and a 2000 fingerprint version.

It also fully integrates with the fantastic PaperCut print management system, amongst others, of course, to offer a fail-safe way for your users to authenticate at the device, even if they have lost or forgotten their ID card.
This solution offers you the ability to implement a biometric authentication system easily, without the headache of a resource hungry server-side software installation & configuration and at a fraction of the cost.

The Bio-Buddy connects via USB just like any other reader, it also works fine with a fast release terminal.

Fastek Consultancy have worked on many large scale PaperCut projects with Selectec over the last few years. The level of expertise and support from Selectec is of the highest standard. Fastek have been approached by a number of other software companies wanting to work with us on machine management projects and we have turned them all down, purely because of the strength of our relationship with Selectec
