Orlando, FL -- STOPware, Inc. is demonstrating a powerful new watch list feature for the company’s highly touted PassagePoint V4.5 Visitor Management Solution here at ASIS 2005. The new watch list feature automatically checks visitors entered into the system against internally generated “do not allow” lists, as well as the ability to automatically download government watch lists. This has become an increasingly sought after feature in lieu of recent mandates for companies conducting government related business.

“The software engineers at STOPware have further differentiated PassagePoint from other visitor management systems by incorporating this unique watch list capability,” said Dana Milkie, General Manager, Temtec- STOPware, A Brady Worldwide Business. “The ability to automatically download and update watch list databases is another innovative capability provided exclusively by PassagePoint.”

STOPware’s PassagePoint Professional and Enterprise line of products, delivers a wide range of enhancements that provide an enriched feature set with exceptional versatility and unprecedented levels of visitor management. The new watch list capability is implemented through the software’s exclusive system notification feature called SecureView™ which provides security personnel with instantaneous system status, security alerts and “watch lists” containing photos and information on individuals. Watch lists can be custom configured in a variety of colors and formats by the system administrator to conform to the user’s specific requirements. Other tasks possible using SecureView include viewing/printing of building status and evacuation reports on an individual or system-wide basis; and immediate notification of emergencies.

Additional features of PassagePoint Professional V4.5 include: Rapid Registration that allows quick and easy scanning of passports, driver’s licenses and business cards for more efficient visitor registration procedures; and a Web Pre-Registration Module to provide easy search and posting of pre-registration lists; Custom Registrations to designate different lengths of visits and badges to accommodate contractors, temporary employees or out of town personnel; LDAP Compatibility via an optional directory link add-on that supports the latest LDAP protocols for integration with enterprise level systems; a new Badge Design Wizard that allows custom badges with 2D bar codes, print preview and multiple label and printer compatibility.

Developed for IT-centric system platforms, PassagePoint Enterprise V4.5 includes all of the functions of PassagePoint Professional V4.5 (except the Web Pre-Registration Module which is sold separately), as well as the following features: Increased Speed and Efficiency with the capability of operating across several servers and deliver verification and registration up to 30% faster than other systems in similar environments with scalable operation; Integration with IT Infrastructures to link to any ODBC or LDAP directory system as well as Oracle and SQL database servers for optimum efficiency; Centralized Management to allow remote installations, configurations and automatic updates of large deployments in multiple buildings with numerous servers and workstations; Redundancy Protection to assure continued operation even if other supporting programs fail; and Federal Security Links to stay current with links to Homeland Security and other government watch lists.
