Norwegian biometric card firm Zwipe has announced that Rose Bruford College, a drama school in London, has chosen Zwipe Access card. 

In a statement, Zwipte noted that the deployment of the Zwipe biometric card solution was secured by UK partner Kodit Security.

David White, Facilities Manager at Rose Bruford said ”The reason we chose Zwipe Access for our educational institution is that it is such a cost effective migration to Biometric Access Control which fits in perfectly with our existing system hardware and software platform.”

Commenting on the deployment, Jack Reyner, Managing Director at Kodit Security said “Kodit Security UK has always maintained a very strong relationship with Rose Bruford College spanning over 15 years. Zwipe was the most obvious and easiest way to upgrade the institution’s current systems without the cost of upgrading existing infrastructure. The issue we had come across with other biometric solutions was the high cost involved with upgrading readers and software, if not the entire system. When we realised how simple and cost effective it would be with the Zwipe biometric access card, we grasped the opportunity. The support we receive from Zwipe is unparalleled and having worked with other solutions providers in the past, nothing else even comes close to what Zwipe can offer.”

Commenting on the order John Laws, Zwipe’s Director of Sales EMEA said “We are very pleased that Rose Bruford College has selected our solution and are very happy to be working with such a great partner in the UK, Kodit Security.  We see the education sector as an ideal use case for Zwipe Access, as it allows institutions to integrate biometric access control in a quick and cost effective manner with existing infrastructure, either for the entire premises or for secure areas such as labs and data centers. We have seen great interest throughout Europe, and are currently making progress to secure deployments with several other universities.”
