Fulcrum Biometrics, a developer of biometric technology solutions, has announced it has partnered with New Jersey Business Systems to create a biometric solution for the Bergen County Department of Human Services in New Jersey.
The solution utilizes the Fulcrum Biometric Framework to develop a fingerprint recognition system designed to provide the Bergen agency the capability to biometrically identify their homeless population.
The new system, which leverages the existing New Jersey Homeless Management Information System, is expected to help better provide the county’s homeless with services that grant them better access to food, clothing and housing as well as expand on details in the state database for homeless populations.
Improvement of the database is expected to allow the state to better attend to grant and other funding requests from the Bergen agency. While the system operates on Fulcrum’s biometric framework, the matching algorithm is from biometrics developer Neurotechnology and the fingerprint scanners for authentication and enrollment come from biometrics developer Futronic Technology.
