Card Scanning Solutions
Card Scanning Solutions introduces Signishell, an advanced solution for collecting signatures and authenticating identity. The system uses a unique algorithm to capture detailed measurements of a signer’s rhythm, speed, pressure and acceleration when creating a signature to use for future comparisons. Unlike many verification systems, the SigniShell relies on more than just the “look” of signatures. Upon capture, they are profiled, encrypted and compressed, then stored in a database system, smart card or token device. The product offers a solution for access control, client identification, document workflows and the security of electronic transactions in any market.
Card Scanning Solutions is a leading developer of identification products. Its product line, including the IdScan identification card scanner and the Swipescan magnetic stripe reader, is used by security and government agencies, credit unions, casinos, hotels and automotive dealers around the world.
