The Application Market Penetration Leadership Award recognized Recognition Systems’ strong market presence in the biometrics industry and its effective penetration into the physical access/time and attendance segment.

“Recognition Systems is not only a global pioneer and leader in the hand geometry biometrics segment, but has also successfully leveraged its diverse expertise to offer fingerprint products for access control applications,” notes Prianka
Chopra, industry manager with Frost & Sullivan.

“The reliability of Recognition System’s hand geometry technology coupled with its ability to meet the ever changing demands of its customers is reflected in the high degree of awareness and acceptance for its biometric solutions,” concludes Chopra. Recognition Systems also received the 2004 Technology Leadership Award in recognition of its pioneering role in the
development of hand recognition technology and in particular for its development of innovative HandKey and FingerKey systems that are now installed in high profile locations across the world, including airports in the United States, Israel and the Republic of Korea.

“San Francisco International Airport controls access to over 180 doors and has more than 18,000 individuals enrolled in its system, which performs more than 25,000 biometric checks daily,” notes Frost & Sullivan’s industry analyst Michael Valenti. “No other biometric technology has demonstrated this impressive long-term reliability in the aviation environment.”
