Reston, Virginia; September 17, 2009 - Daon, the award-winning global provider of identity assurance software and services, announced today the availability of a calculator which can be used to determine potential return-on-investment (ROI) for automated provisioning to a physical access control system (PACS). The calculator, which has been used by large corporations to build a business case for automation, is available for download from the Daon website at http://www.daon.com/products/credential-connect and is free of charge.
Daon’s identity management system provides the centralized platform and client biometric infrastructure for a variety of uses including employee credentialing, and the company offers products specific to physical access and provisioning including CredentialConnect™, CredentialCreate™ and UnifiedID™. Daon’s COTS software has proven to be invaluable in the delivery of cost-effective, consistent and scalable solutions including those for corporate background checking, employee credentialing, provisioning and access control. These products have been selected by two of the world’s largest defense contractors for their internal credentialing programs, with enterprise-wide enrolments expected to number in the hundreds of thousands. Daon products will be on display at the Biometrics Consortium Conference in Tampa next week as well as the ASIS International Conference in Anaheim.
According to Daon’s CEO Tom Grissen, “As large enterprises seek to solve their identity management challenges, they look for evidence that supports particular business processes and enables them to make good buying decisions. Daon’s years of experience have provided us with many case studies and data points around the true value of COTS software for identity management. We are pleased to provide tools which allow customers to see the savings that can be realized in both time and money. This calculator affords an opportunity for customers to use their own employee statistics and business process data to determine the potential ROI for automation of provisioning. This automation not only saves time and money, but also allows security personnel to focus on their core competency as opposed to spending unnecessary time on administrative functions.”
