Biometrics Coming to a Pharmacy Near You ScriptPro Pharmacy Automation to Partner with Xelios Biometrics
MISSION, Kan., Aug. 29, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Xelios Biometrics and ScriptPro are pleased to announce they have entered into a multi-year licensing agreement whereby Xelios will supply biometric authentication technology to be used in ScriptPro's pharmacy automation and management systems.
According to Mike Coughlin, ScriptPro's President and CEO, "We believe biometric authentication is the simplest and most powerful way to implement controls over pharmacy processes. We have tested a number of technologies in this area and feel that Xelios has taken this method to a new level of speed and accuracy."
Biometric identifiers, such as fingerprints, are distinctive, measurable characteristics that can be used to identify individuals. Biometric identifiers are more reliable in verifying identity than ID cards or PIN codes.
ScriptPro will use Xelios Biometrics during the prescription dispensing process to identify authorized pharmacy staff and track and store information about who handles a prescription. The goal is to provide ScriptPro customers a biometric alternative to replace ID cards and PIN codes currently in use.
Xelios Biometrics is a leading developer and supplier of biometric identity solutions based on technologies originally developed by Safran (SAF.PA) for police and military applications. Xelios technologies have been integrated into systems used in various industries including banking, healthcare and sports stadiums. Customers around the world rely on Xelios solutions for identity authentication, fraud prevention and securing access to facilities and information networks.
