Using Biometric Identification

EPS is configured to use the Digital Persona fingerprint device for user identification throughout the system. When you add a new user record, you also scan each user's fingerprint. On several windows throughout EPS, the system identifies and authenticates the user by means of the biometric device. For example, you can use the biometric device to log into the system and start and complete Workflow tasks.

The following is a picture of the biometric device the system uses to read fingerprints:

Note: Only one button per window is enabled for biometrics. This button is identified with an icon as shown:

Also, if for some reason you do not have a fingerprint on file or the biometric device is temporarily unavailable, you can use your login name and password for identification and authentication.
