Testimonials & Case STudies

Giving all our clients the gift of time

Martek Contracts

“Great System, easy to create reports and get accurate information on time & attendance and job costs. Knowledgeable customer support and excellent advice.”

Sue Green


City of London School

“Synel are an outstanding company to work with. The installation team were excellent throughout the project: hard-working, straightforward to deal with, and quick to understand our requirements. We have ended up with a great solution that we plan to expand upon as our needs develop.”

Joe Matthews

IT Systems Manager

The College Merthyr Tydfil / Y Coleg Merthyr Tudful

“Implementing the Synel EduReg electronic registration and cashless payment system while moving to the new site of the college, we found it not only user-friendly but a powerful management solution as well.

The solution has helped us save crucial teaching time, with the elimination of manual registration, and integrates seamlessly with our MIS.

Moreover, the cashless payment system, which covers school meals payments, printing and vending machines, reduces the hassle of money transactions with a one card identification and payment system.”

Chris Richards

Head of Student Records

Rugby Football Union, Twickenham

“We selected Schedule Master as our preferred scheduling and time & attendance solution, and since implementation have been very pleased with the system’s performance.

It has saved us a great deal of time and I would have no hesitation in recommending both Schedule Master as a system you can work with and Synel as an excellent company to do business with.”

George R. Vaughan

Project Manager

Sainsburys Supermarkets

“Synel are an excellent partner, very easy to work with, great service.”

Chris Storey

Project and Programme Manager for IT Delivery

Honda UK Manufacturing

“Synel worked very quickly to establish a time and attendance system in line with a complex set of rules. Their customer service is very efficient and is constantly there to provide support when required. The Harmony system has been customised to meet our needs and is easily adaptable”

Mary Wootten

Human Resources Advisor

Fresenius Medical Care

“We have used Synel’s biometric fingerprint time recording terminals since 2010. The software links our HR database and payroll to the fingerprint machines, allowing us to collect the employees’ clocking information simply and quickly. Making employee management
so simple”

Karen Fisher

Human Resource Manager


“Ensuring full compliance with government legislation and the health, safety and welfare of our pupils is our top priority. This is why we chose the Synel EduReg system which was the best biometric solution available.”

Andrew Barnes

Director of Technology

Northampton College

Over 10,000 students over three sites. Electronic registration system with fire reports.

Using Mifare cards with Synel terminals and EduReg software all students’ attendance is monitored in real time.

All Terminals are updated every morning with who should attend which classroom.

The EduReg system will send automatic alerts if any of the terminals are not communicating properly.

The Lady Eleanor Holles School

Over 800 Students and staff. Security system combined with electronic registration, access control and cashless meals.

The preferred ID technology was biometrics (fingerprint) with the system based on a dual card and fingerprint system.

Synel supplied a turn key solution covering all aspects of biometric access control to various classrooms, all external doors / gates and many internal points like the computer room and other facilities.


Biometrics technology is an irrefutable verification or identification of a person by various physiological characteristics, which cannot be transferred or copied.

Biometric Authentication

Biometric authentication measures the unique, invariable biological characteristics of an individual. One of the most common biometrics used today is fingerprint information.

The biometric information is captured during enrolment and translated into a template, which is stored for subsequent authentication. The template is then stored in the database or on the server. During authentication, the biometric information is captured and compared against the stored template. If the user is valid, the two images will match, and authentication is achieved.

Pattern Recognition

Synel uses a pattern recognition algorithm as the basis for its fingerprint authentication systems. This algorithm processes the entire fingerprint image, rather than simply selecting a limited number of minutiae points. This means that pattern recognition algorithms are more robust as they are not significantly affected by the loss of information when a finger is scarred, damaged, or dirty.

Protecting your rights!!

The integrity of the finger print template is guaranteed. We do not keep an image of your finger print!!! Our Biometric solution scans the fingertip ridges at a very low resolution, and translates the scan through an algorithm to a number. Only that number is stored.

Every time a Fingerprint is presented to the sensor, it will be compared to the appropriate algorithm in the data base.

Finger Print Verification – is the process of entering a pin # or using a card and comparing the current scanned image against a stored template.

Response time is 1 sec

Finger Print Identification – using the finger template for comparison. No need to enter a number or use a card. Response time 2-3 seconds.

Synel access control systems and devices use biometric data as a unique identifier for door entry and clocking systems, as a simple alternative to keys, keyfobs, smart cards, and other types of separate access codes.

Synel access control systems are places at either primary, or all entrance and exit points.

They can be wall mounted, placed on a counter top, or part of a turnstile system — with installation planning designed to give convenience for those authorised, and protect all from unauthorised access.
