FST Biometrics has announced it has installed its In Motion Identification (IMID) solution to provide secure access and an enhanced customer experience for students and members of the Wellington Health & Fitness Club in the UK.

Wellington College is one of the UK’s esteemed boarding schools, established in 1859, 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 selecting FST’s 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 centre, while preventing access to those unauthorised,” explained Brian Cannon, 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.”

FST’s IMID Access will manage secure access for the fitness centre’s 3,000 members, with access points deployed at the facility’s main entrance. IMID is also integrated with Wellington’s Gladstone MRM Plus2 system and TRP member experience management software to ensure every member receives appropriate service and attention from staff.

“We are proud that such a prominent institution has selected IMID to enhance the center’s security and operational efficiency, and to help staff provide more personalised service to members,” said Arie Melamed, Head of the Access Control Identification Solutions Division of FST Biometrics. “Our biometric solution is ideal for use in this setting. The centre is reserved for student use at specific hours, while paying members access the leisure facilities at other times. IMID is fully customisable to ensure the right people are granted access at appropriate times.”
