M2SYS named one of “Top 40 Innovative technology Companies in Georgia”
We are pleased to announce that the Technology Association of Georgia (TAG) has named us as one of the “Top 40 Innovative Technology Companies in Georgia.” TAG’s Top 40 awards recognize Georgia-based technology companies for their innovation, financial impact, and their efforts at spreading awareness of Georgia’s technology initiatives throughout the U.S. and globally.
The opportunity to be recognized by this award is an honor for our team and we are proud to be selected as part of an elite group of innovators in Georgia. Our efforts as an identity management solutions firm specializing in biometric technology have seen our deployments spread to all corners of the globe helping to foster higher security and increased convenience in many different market segments including healthcare biometric patient identification, workforce management biometric time clocks, and automated biometric identification systems (ABIS) for large scale, mulit-modal projects in areas such as law enforcement, national ID, and border control.
Thank you to everyone at TAG for the prestigious award and for all of our team here at M2SYS for working together to passionately support the growth and development of biometric technology.
For more details on the award, please read our news release in our corporate press room.
March #biometricchat to discuss biometrics for border control, voter registration, and visa application processing.
Here are the list of questions that we will cover in our tweet chat on large biometric technology deployments (read this post on March’s #biometricchat for details) with Cyrille Bataller (@CyrilleBataller) from Accenture (@Accenture):
- How essential are multiple biometrics for accurate identification on ultra-large reference databases? What are the mechanisms used for multi-modal biometric fusion and can you discuss the importance of fusing biographic attributes and fuzzy matching into the fusion equation?
- What are some of the different challenges associated with large scale deployments? With clients of different pre-existing tech investments, is it easier to start fresh with a client that doesn’t have as much legacy IT or is it easier to integrate a biometric capability into a highly developed IT environment?
- Recently, the European Commission Directorate General for Home Affairs awarded a consortium of Accenture, Morpho (Safran) and HP a contract to maintain the European Visa Information System (VIS). What does the program entail and what does the European Commission hope to accomplish with it?
- Will mobile biometric identification devices eventually be deployed as part of the European Visa Information System project?
- To what degree are some non-governmental entities contemplating deployments that might properly be described as “large-scale”?
- Interoperability is important in some deployments (passports) and less so in others (national elections). Where it is important, and how is that evolving?
- Do you believe that civil liberties hold up large biometric identification deployments in places like the US, UK and other commonwealth type countries (with the exception of India)?
The chat will take place on March the 28th at 11 am EDT, 8:00 am PST, 16:00 pm BST, 17:00 pm (CEST), 23:00 pm (SGT), 0:00 (JST). Please join us and follow the discussion using tweetchat.com. This site will automatically fill in the chat hashtag at the end of all your tweets, no need to type #biometricchat for each tweet you send.
Don’t worry if you can’t make the chat on March the 28th. We will be archiving the discussion and posting it here shortly afterwards. If you have any additional questions you would like to ask Cyrille, please send an email to: marketing @m2sys.com
Thank you and we look forward to seeing you on today’s chat!

RightPunch™ PC-based biometric time clock
We are happy to announce today that U.S. Vision has adopted our RightPunch™ PC-based biometric time clock to help increase workforce optimization by; eliminating buddy punching, strengthening labor tracking, establishing a concrete audit trail, and reducing payroll inflation. Seamlessly interfacing with U.S. Vision’s existing Kronos timekeeping software and supporting multiple languages, RightPunch™ allows employees to clock in and out through fingerprint biometric authentication to help optimize labor tacking performance. The biometric time clock also supports offline punch storage and schedule enforcement in addition to alterate punch submission tools like personal identification number (PIN) entry.
RightPunch™ is now installed on servers at each of U.S. Vision’s over 700 locations throughout the country which connect to the M2SYS Central Data Management System (CDMS) that synchronizes data like biometric templates and employee schedules between site locations. All an employee has to do is scan their finger on a biometric hardware device and their timestamp is recorded then automatically reconciled with Kronos’ Workforce Timekeeper software.
U.S. Vision CFO Carmen Nepa is pleased with the decision to invest in the RigthPunch™ PC-based biometric time clock to help boost employee accountability and productivity. Reducing payroll inflation to achieve lower labor costs is an important initiative for U.S. Vision. The afforable, flexible PC-based RightPunch™ biometric time clock fits perfectly in the U.S. Vision strategy to ensure compliance with labor tracking laws.

RightPunch™ PC-based biometric time clock
Today, M2SYS announced that another California State University campus has incorporated their RightPunch™ biometric time clock using palm vein technology to keep track of employee time and attendance. California State University, Fresno Association, Inc. has implemented the M2SYS RightPunch™ palm vein biometric employee identification technology with Kronos Time and Attendance Software to help optimize labor tracking performance. Click here for a copy of the news release.
Joining with Cal Poly Pomona Foundation, Inc. who currently uses palm vein biometrics with the RightPunch™ biometric time clock, California State University, Fresno Association, Inc. chose to implement a PC-based biometric time clock with their Kronos Time and Attendance software to more efficiently manage and track labor costs and reduce employee time theft. In addition, California State University, Fresno Association, Inc. also sought to speed punch times and avoid costly legal expenses and legal fees which can often be a tremendous financial and resource burden.
RightPunch™ drastically reduces payroll error rates and helps expedite the clock in/clock out process to boost employee productivity and increase accountability. Plus, RightPunch™ is a more affordable alternative to a wall mounted biometric time clock and is powered by the M2SYS Hybrid Biometric Platform™ which offers support for fingerprint, finger vein, palm vein and iris recognition, ensuring that 100% of employees are reliably and consistently identified.
We welcome California State University, Fresno Association, Inc. into the M2SYS family of RightPunch™ users and look forward to working with more institutes of higher education and all others to help implement biometric time clocks to efficiently track employee time and attendance.
