BACS Asset Management System

Auburn Hills, MI (PRWEB) April 03, 2013

LEID Products, LLC., the leader of electronic locker and cabinet storage with biometric asset protection and control, today announced the Southern Illinois University Edwardsville has successfully installed the Biometric Access Control System (BACS) in its police department. The university requires the BACS Asset Management System with its asset management software and electronic access cabinets to store their shared weaponry and critical assets, to keep track of maintenance and to ensure availability and safety of all assets.

Coupled with tamper proof electronic storage units, the ID Station Kiosk serves as the control point for access to assets stored in the system. SIUE police officers – who staff two campuses and share department assets – can ensure accountability, tracking and inventory needs for shared equipment with little time and effort. Specifically, the department is storing assets like tasers, radios, AED's, cameras, etc.

“We are extremely pleased with the BACS System. LEID Products has introduced a solution that is tremendously beneficial for law enforcement agencies,” said Gina Hays, Chief of Police, Southern Illinois University Edwardsville. “It was important for us to figure out, that frankly, we need to take better care of our equipment. With the BACS System, officers have already been taking better care of our equipment, they know they will be held accountable for it. We purchased this system for its accessibility, accountability and efficiency – all benefits we have already realized through using it. It’s been so valuable and I would highly recommend this product to any police department.”

Utilizing RFID and biometric technology, the BACS system eliminates time-consuming manual asset transaction record keeping to allow officers to single handedly pick up and drop off department assets. The system tracks all maintenance requirements and timing, as well as keeps detailed records of previous usage for every asset stored in the system. Through remote access, department leaders and administrators can control the system at all times. Officers who use the system in police departments must provide their fingerprint in order to gain access to individually pre-approved equipment.
