Jolly Technologies was giving demonstrations of its ID Flow system at the National Association of Campus Card Users Annual Conference. ID Flow is a visitor management system that enables a school to scan a driver license, capture a photo and fingerprint biometric, check that data against a watch list and then issues a credential, says Kurt Bell, vice president of sales and marketing at Jolly Technologies.

The ID Flow system is built with an open architecture and is designed to easily integrate with existing physical access control systems. Companies can also create their own watch lists or subscribe to law enforcement lists, Bell says. [end]
