Prestigious Wellington College Deploys Biometrics’ In-Motion Identification in Upgrade to its Secure Access Operation

Students and health club members to enjoy access to wellness center without the use of cards, fobs or keypad codes

FTL Secure Solutions, a leading security solutions and network solutions provider, has announced it has installed an In Motion Identification (IMID™) solution to provide both secure access and an enhanced customer experience for students and members of the Wellington Health & Fitness Club.

Wellington College is one of the UK’s esteemed boarding schools, established in 1859, and built as a monument to the first Duke of Wellington. The classically-built institution decided to make this high-tech upgrade to its security infrastructure, and selected FTL’s Secure Solution to deploy the FST IMID solution for its accuracy, speed and ease-of-use for members.

“We required a system that provided touch-free in-motion identification for smooth member access to our fitness center, while preventing access to those unauthorised,” explained Brian Canon, Operations Bursar for Wellington College. “We value our tradition, but also are prepared to go cutting-edge for the sake of members’ time, health and safety, all of which are preserved through FST’s advanced biometric identification system.”

 “Given our strong experience working with Wellington College for several years, we knew they expected an access control solution that would be both secure and elegant,” said Andrew Wylie of FTL Secure Solutions, FST’s strategic partner in the UK, and a leading provider of design, installation, commissioning, testing and training for access control systems. “FST’s IMID Access provides the convenience and simplicity of in-motion, visual identification while also offering the highest level of biometric-based reliability.”

 FST’s IMID Access will manage secure access for the fitness center’s 3000 members, with access points deployed at the main entrance of the facility.  IMID is also integrated with Wellington’s Gladstone MRM Plus2 system and their TRP member experience management software to ensure every member receives appropriate service and attention from staff.
