Before ekey fingerprint scanners inspire the customers, they go through a long chain of procedures and exacting tests. In cooperation with the company Testify, the documentation of quality and security controls could be successfully digitalized. The data is now collected using a mobile app and the collected data is automatically exchanged between ekey’s internal software systems. The project also convinced the Upper Austrian Chamber of Labor and was supported by the AK Future Fund.

Digitalization project

ekey has been developing and producing fingerprint access solutions in Linz/Austria for almost 20 years and employs around 100 people. In the areas of occupational safety and quality control, the company relies on the digital mobile solution of Testify GmbH. Manfred Brunner, Head of Innovation and Organisation at ekey, praises: “We now have 100% documentation quality, can evaluate test results in real time and coordinate further processes in the supply chain in a timely manner. It can be said that with Testify we have optimized our digital quality management and that processes have been improved in the interest of the employees”.

People at the center

The joint project of ekey and Testify fit in well with the concern of the Upper Austrian Chamber of Labor to put people at the center of digitalization. Therefore, the decision was made to support this within the framework of the “AK Future Fund”. In order to present the project to the public as a successful example of digitalization in the workplace, a film was made about the cooperation between ekey and Testify. Click here for the video
