Human Recognition Systems deploy MTrust™ mobile biometric identification for UKBA Tier 4 compliance

Written by admin on . Posted in Tenant News

Human Recognition Systems has successfully deployed its identity registration platform, MTrust™, for leading training and learning provider, QA Business School to help ensure compliance with the UK Border Agency’s (UKBA) Tier 4 regulations for international student sponsorship.

Leveraging rugged, handheld touchscreen devices with an integrated fingerprint reader, MTrust™ is the first solution of its kind to offer a truly mobile enrolment and identification capability; ideal for the classroom environment to quickly capture student attendance during teaching sessions and to flag unauthorised absence, required for UKBA compliance.

Biometric technology is used to accurately identify an individual’s attendance in real-time, removing the need to manually maintain paper-based registers and attendance databases; both of which are prone to error and carry with them a significant administrative overhead. Student fingerprint data captured during enrolment is held solely in the MTrust™ platform and only used for the purpose of registering attendance during a teaching session. Due to the flexibility of the MTrust™ solution, full reporting of attendance data can be viewed within the platform or integrated into the reporting infrastructure of an existing management or student information system.

MTrust™ provides a versatile identity registration, management and assurance solution to those applications where the cost of failing to properly manage identity is significant. Within the education sector, failure to properly monitor the attendance of Tier 4 students can lead to a reduction in the number of Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies (CAS) an institution can assign, in addition to the risk of the institution having their sponsorship licence for international students revoked, such as the recent revocation of Highly Trusted Status at London Metropolitan University. The resulting impact to the institution is a substantial loss in revenue, particularly if a large proportion of their student intake are international students.

The MTrust™ solution not only helps ensure compliance with UKBA regulations, it also develops student engagement; providing additional academic and pastoral benefits such as improved student performance, experience and retention.

Mike Brown, IT Director of QA commented “monitoring student attendance not only ensures conformity to the relevant UKBA regulations, it also allows us to track the student’s progress throughout their studies – there is a proven correlation between course attendance and excellent academic performance.”

He added “the deployment of Human Recognition Systems’ MTrust™ system has played a key role in the automation of our student attendance registration and monitoring. The system has been very well received by both staff and students with the ease of use and speed of the system being key reasons for this. To date we have had 100% student fingerprint enrolment and identification in class with student identification and registration achieved within just 3 seconds.”

Providing a streamlined biometric identity registration and workflow platform, MTrust™ ensures that each individual registers their identity according to the Identity Policy set out by the organisation. MTrust™ is therefore suited to a multitude of business applications in addition to the education sector, including tackling fraud in government identification programmes such as benefits issuance.
