Fed Submit Card Processing

For high-volume fingerprint card scanning

Mentalix’s Fed Submit Card Processing solution is designed for service bureaus or large agencies that process a high volume of fingerprint cards.  Using multiple flatbed scanners, fingerprint cards are scanned and converted to NIST/EBTS format.  Fed Submit Card Processing provides an interface for creating electronic fingerprint files, checking the data, tracking scan statistics, and publishing the files to storage media or submitting the transactions to an AFIS.  Mentalix can work with you to tailor the system to match your company’s requirements.
