The University of Sunderland has implemented a student document management and biometric attendance verification attendance platform from Human Recognition Systems (HRS) at its London Campus.
Through HRS’ MVerify platform, the university aims to simplify and reduce administration effort meeting Tier 4 requirements, which enables the automated capture and verification of student identity documentation. The solution also helps reduce the impact of the student registration process during teaching sessions via the automated capture and reporting of student attendance.
Using handheld devices featuring an integrated fingerprint reader, pupils verify their identity and thereby register their attendance by presenting their finger to the device. This removes the need for the taking of a lecturer-led register, helping to save valuable teaching time.
MVerify also enables the university’s London Campus to automate the capture of document data from student passports and visas, with images of the document and its information verified and stored within five seconds. The cloud-based application provides real-time visibility and reporting of document and attendance data which can be exported into the university’s existing Student Information System, Tribal SITS:Vision to deliver a fully integrated management and reporting solution.
This streamlined platform has led to a considerable reduction in the amount of time spent processing admissions; removed the capacity for manual error, as well as reducing cost whilst allowing the more effective allocation of human resources.
