NEW DELHI: Mantra Softech, the biometric device manufacturer has tied up with the UP Government to distribute rations to the BPL masses. As part of this association the company aims to drive commodity distribution to intended beneficiaries via a transparent biometrics identification system.
Mantra is offering a versatile biometric POS terminal backed by a robust central solution: mTerminal100. The device comes equipped with a Remote Management Application that enables the administrator to access all the device activity online in real-time mode, for example, Battery status, Health of the device, Log In & Out activity, Transaction logs and Management Logs. Moreover, the sturdy build of the device makes it ideal for usage even in extreme conditions.
As part of the process, Aadhaar card enabled beneficiaries first registered themselves using their fingerprint and iris, followed by authenticating themselves at fair price shops using fingerprint and iris scanner to access subsidized commodities, thereby making the distribution process easier and more seamless. The cloud-based technology will also be leveraging for additional purposes in coming months such as bill collection, electricity bill payment, and banking in remote areas, ensuring smooth recording of authentications and transactions using MIS on the back of a central helpdesk, acting as a mediator between shop owners and service to fix any technical issue immediately.
Mantra is also acting as an OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) in Chhattisgarh, Maharashtra, and Andhra Pradesh.
