ING Direct installs Identix fingerprint scanning kit

ING Direct has deployed fingerprint scanning technology from Minnesota's Identix to help increase the speed and efficiency of processing US employee background checks.

The Dutch bank has installed several TouchPrint fingerprint live scan systems at three locations in the US. The systems are now operational with live electronic submission through the American Banking Association, the channeling agency that handles FBI fingerprint submissions for the financial services industry.

The ABA says electronic submissions speed up the results of mandatory background ID checks from four to five weeks to four to five days.

Arkadi Kuhlmann, president and CEO of ING Direct states: "The background check process helps to ensure the integrity of our employee base."

Identix, which recently merged with facial recognition firm Visionics Corporation, has previously announced similar installations with Mellon Bank and two other undisclosed financial services firms.
