Pyramid Launches TimeTrax Bio Generation II



MERIDEN, Conn., May 6 -- Pyramid Technologies (http://www.ptitime.com/), an established leader in manufacturing Time and Attendance products, is launching the Pyramid TimeTrax Bio Generation II, an innovative biometric system that features a new and improved sensor for fingerprint reading. The first generation of Pyramid's TimeTrax Bio was released in January 2007. The new Generation II offers all the same features as its predecessor with one-touch time and attendance tracking for instantly identifying an employee by their unique fingerprint. The system eliminates swipe cards, badges, paper time cards, and costly buddy punching because employees punch in and out at the terminal with the swipe of a finger.

"We are excited to offer our customers the Pyramid TimeTrax Bio Generation II system. Our new and improved sensor has been engineered and fine-tuned to deliver quality fingerprint images," stated Manny DaSilva, Vice President, Sales and Marketing, Pyramid Technologies. "In harsh work environments, fingers can be callused, or contain contaminants like grease or dirt that can change the reflective properties of the fingerprint. It takes a well-engineered scanner like the one Pyramid has engineered to handle any possible variations."
