Ingersoll Rand Security Technologies (Schlage) Forms Partnership with ADI Time

Heightened Biometric-Based Time and Attendance/Workforce Management Solutions for ADI Time's Reseller Network and Their End-Users

CARMEL, IN - Ingersoll Rand Security Technologies, a leading global provider of hand geometry-based Schlage HandPunch biometric terminals for collecting time and attendance information, announced today that it has signed ADI Time, LLC of Warwick, RI as a business partner to purchase Schlage Biometrics' full product line, including F-Series and the new GT-400 HandPunch terminals, directly. ADI Time is a leading vendor of cloud computing time management software services (SaaS) for small-to-mid-sized businesses and divisions of large enterprises. This new direct relationship will foster synergy between two industry leaders to help increase opportunities for ADI Time resellers to provide increased solutions to their time and attendance and workforce management customers.

"To compliment our popular SaaS subscription service and licensed time and attendance software, ADI Time was seeking a strong alliance with a leading provider of biometric terminals in order to address the needs of our partner and user communities," explains ADI Time CEO John DiPippo. "Partnering with Ingersoll Rand provided us with both a uniquely differentiated product via Schlage's hand geometry readers, and a direct relationship with an organization that has the size, product breadth, and industry leadership to ensure we are in the best position to delight our customers and maximize market exposure."

"ADI Time has been successful providing payroll and human relations managers with our Schlage HandPunch solutions for over a dozen years," adds Jon Mooney, Ingersoll Rand Security Technologies general manager, Schlage biometrics. "They are exactly the type of partner that can help organizations achieve new levels in time and attendance and workforce management data collection by leveraging the Schlage GT-400 HandPunch reader."

The Schlage GT-400 is the first of a new generation of terminals created specifically for time and attendance and workforce management applications. The smaller, improved Schlage GT-400 HandPunch terminal uses the size and shape of each employee's hand for verification, making it fast, efficient and easy to use. With a large LCD screen and programmable soft keys, perfect for interactive workforce management kiosks, the HandPunch GT-400 provides a conduit for employee communication right at the terminal. Its Linux platform offers multiple time and attendance/workforce management software developers with easy interface options.

"Using biometrics to automate the collection of time and attendance data can reduce costly buddy punching, a problem when one employee clocks in or out for another, manual review and correction of time data, and payroll error," emphasizes DiPippo. "Millions of people throughout the world clock in and out of work daily with a hand geometry reader. In conjunction with our software, the HandPunch delivers a payback very rapidly."
