ievo has provided its ultimate biometric reader for North Wales High School Emrys ap Iwan. The school commissioned local security and IT specialist Spider Technologies to research a replacement solution for their exhausted swipe card system. After extensive investigation Spider Technologies recommended none other than the robust ievo ultimate fingerprint reader.
After attending IFSEC and researching each possible solution, Managing Director of Spider Technologies Steve Jones decided upon the ievo ultimate fingerprint reader as it stood out from the crowd at the security event, mainly due to its capabilities and indisputable reliability.
The school previously used a swipe card system, where approximately 250 sixth form pupils and 100 teaching staff would gain access between different points around the building. Not only was the system difficult to maintain but it became increasingly expensive to run because pupils kept losing their cards. All the ievo ultimate readers secure and monitor access on entry points between two main school buildings, which enables further control over sixth form pupils and the remainder of the school year groups.
Nayland Southorn,Headteacher at Emrys ap Iwan, said "The rapid installation of the ievo ultimate fingerprint readers has proved to be a tremendous success, immediately solving all of our access and security problems in one fell swoop.
