While we at SC Labs are not developers, we found this product to be easy to install and quite flexible - with the ability to use various programming languages through Dynamic Link Library (DLL), Java, ActiveX or .NET. We also found the inclusion of a ready-to-go example program with the source code included to provide a good starting point for a developer.
This product provides a very flexible platform for development and programming and can be used to incorporate fingerprint authentication into applications on standalone PCs and web-based and client-server applications.
