Fujitsu Frontech North America Inc. (FFNA), a leader in innovative technology and front-end solutions, and Tidel Engineering, L.P. a global leader in intelligent cash management solutions, today announced the full integration of Fujitsu’s PalmSecure biometric authentication solution into Tidel’s Revolution® series of “Closed Loop System” cash automation products.

“Adding the ability for users to quickly, accurately and easily establish their identity with PalmSecure is another significant advantage that Tidel’s cash management solutions offer. This system saves time and reduces errors by completely automating the cash management process,” stated Christer Bergman, Vice President of Fujitsu’s Biometric Solutions Group. “Tidel, a global leader in cash management and automation, continues to set the standard for cash handling, management and security.”

Tidel began in 1978 as a division of The Southland Corporation (now known as 7-Eleven, Inc.) by inventing a robbery deterrent product that has become familiar to retail store operators everywhere - the Timed Access Cash Controller (TACC). In setting the standard for low-cost, high-reliability ATM performance and an expanded product line that includes scalable ATMs and multimedia point-of-sale kiosks, Tidel has grown into one of the largest manufacturers of cash management and security equipment in the world.

“We are committed to providing real-world value to our customer, and working with Fujitsu's PalmSecure technology gives us the chance to better deliver in a critical area: Security,” said Michael Hudson, Executive Vice President of Revolution Retail Systems at Tidel. “Fujitsu has been outstanding partner by assisting with the convergence of our Revolution Series cash platform with, what we feel, is the strongest biometric security technology in the world. PalmSecure is a true differentiator and competitive advantage, and our customers have responded positively." PalmSecure further solidifies a long standing relationship between Fujitsu Frontech and Tidel. Tidel has been using Fujitsu currency handling solutions in both the Revolution and its Sentinel series solutions.

The Fujitsu PalmSecure sensor uses a near-infrared light to capture a user’s palm vein pattern, generating a unique biometric template that is matched against the palm vein patterns of pre-registered users. Unlike other readers, a PalmSecure device does not come into contact with the skin, making it extremely hygienic, non-intrusive and unrestricted by external factors such as skin types and conditions.
