Student capture

Human Recognition Systems is to launch a student identity and attendance verification platform to the university sector. MVerify platform allows the automated verification of student identity documents and capture of student attendance during teaching sessions using fingerprint or smartcard technology integrated onto a handheld device. This data is then fed into the MVerify web application to allow monitoring and reporting of student attendance data in real-time.

Launch was to the university sector at this year’s UKCISA Annual Conference (July 2-4). Intended to offer Home Office Tier 4 compliance, the MVerify platform allows the automated capture and verification of student identity documents, such as passports and visas.

As visa restrictions on international students are tightened, universities must ensure accurate reporting, to comply with the Home Office rules for Tier 4 student immigration and maintain their Highly Trusted Sponsor (HTS) status. MVerify has been developed in response to this changing higher education landscape by providing a tool that can eradicate reporting errors and irregularities and help improve student retention and academic performance through increased course attendance.

Jon Busby, Business Development at HRS, says: “Tier 4 compliance is set to be one of the key topics of discussion at this year’s UKCISA as universities seek to attract international students while navigating the complex Home Office reporting requirements. With our extensive expertise in identity management, we have developed a cost-effective solution for the higher education sector that can simplify the Tier 4 reporting structure, reduce time spent on manual data administration and lower the associated costs. Operated from a handheld device that can be passed among students, MVerify also supports an improved student experience by enabling more time to be spent on teaching rather than taking registers.”

HRS says that its system operates off an online platform that enables deployment without the need for infrastructure set up. The platform can also be integrated into Student Information Systems (SIS) to provide a end-to-end student reporting, with the first integration being Tribal’s SITS:Vision system. The ability to access student information from any location in real-time will also benefit universities with students and staff across multiple sites.
