This is a slightly creepy subject, I know. At work we already have a hand-scanner for clocking-in and out, so what the heck! My question is this - is there a fingerprint app (or hand scanning app) available that could be used in a custom form in Sharepoint? The purpose would be to sign off against a field or signing off a form.
Another of my questions concerned users signing off training records by signing on a tablet - their signature would be validated vs a stored signature database - some add-in software have been needed to validate whether or not the signatures matches. But I've decided the technology seems too unreliable.
We currently use infowise electronic signatures for electronic signatures and the people being trained (production operatives in a factory) need input their username + password to sign a training form. The trouble is, we don't use them very often and people forget their passwords. It would be simpler and quicker with a fingerprint/hand scanner.
The trainee and the trainer would scan their fingerprint to 'sign off' the training as complete. Obviously, every fingerprint is unique, so no need for usernames + passwords any more. I would be looking to use a tablet, so sign-offs can be done on the factory floor immediately. The tablet would be used to upload the form to Sharepoint.
Is this possible to do this in Sharepoint and using a biometric tablet? Is there an app that can do this?
