Since 1994, we have been developing leading-edge solutions to credential and track large quantities of people. It all started with our flagship product A-PASS that was initially designed to run on M.S. DOS and at the time it was revolutionary. The focus of the solution was to expedite the flow of crew members, passengers and visitors On and Off the ship with accurate reporting. In fact, A-PASS was first deployed to the Pacific Princess, also famously known as "The Love Boat". With the evolution of enterprise application frameworks, today A-PASS has evolved to run on the latest versions of Windows and Mobile platforms. These days, A-PASS has become the standard in the Marine industry where the world’s largest cruise lines have deployed A-PASS for tracking souls on board. The A-PASS system has been deployed in over 100 cruise line ships and counting, where most ships carry over 3,000 crew members and passengers.
After gaining significant experience in the Maritime industry, in late 2000 we introduced FAST-PASS to address the need for additional security required by organizations that range from commercial, education, government, and healthcare to improve their visitor and employee management tracking, where in some cases, this can be several hundred or thousands of people per day. In 2018, in response to new business requirements, we released the all-new FAST-PASS 7 web application.
We have over two decades of experience, along the way we have learned to design adaptable systems for current needs and tomorrow's unexpected requirements. An ingredient that goes into our software architecture designs is the experience of building flexible and scalable systems with crowd management in mind. We possess a great deal of curiosity with a resourceful attitude towards problem-solving. We believe that we can help you overcome compliance and efficiency hurdles. Our goal is to create a long-term relationship with our clients by empowering them with solutions that will improve their decision-making process.
Founded in 1994 and located in West Palm Beach Florida, Security Identification Systems Corporation (SISCO) is the pioneer in developing leading edge Visitor and Identity Management Solutions. Initially our systems were designed for the cruise lines to track passengers and crew on and off a ship. Our A-PASS® system soon became the Industry Standard for every modern cruise line which has processed over 170 million plus passengers and crew since its introduction.
Applying the expertise gained in the cruise line industry, SISCO developed FAST-PASS® to provide state-of-the-art Identity Management solutions for credentialing the general public. FAST-PASS is a high speed, interactive, automated photo registration, data acquisition, ID document imaging and authentication system to track visitors, contractors, vendors, volunteers and employees as they enter and exit facilities and businesses. FAST-PASS is the most comprehensive system available today and is the solution of choice for Education, Healthcare, Multi-Tenant Buildings, Law Enforcement and Government.
Re-engineered from the ground floor up, the new A-PASS 6 system is the next generation of ship management for marine safety and security. While providing many new and improved features over the original A-PASS Classic, many new safety and security options are now available. For example, the new Visitor Registration module allows embarkation operations to be streamlined by capturing visitor photos in the terminal or preprinting visitor cards. With the new Corporate Badging Module, badges can be generated shore side and managed centrally to ensure personnel have proper fleet-wide clearance and preauthorization.
In response to our current landscape, the new version of FAST-PASS 7 is a major release written from the ground up with new technologies that provide a solid foundation for addressing compliance and security concerns. Additionally, this new platform provides greater flexibility and feasibility for implementing future feature requests and thus provide better technical support. If you are familiar with the previous version of FAST-PASS, then you will recognize the availability of the core functionality and we are sure that you will appreciate the enhancements. In particular, an important characteristic inherited into FAST-PASS 7 is the responsive speed and capability of handling thousands of visitors per day, the ability to design custom badges - among others. Additionally, we believe that the new reporting capabilities are far more dynamic and will help a great deal with your business making decision process.
SISCO continues to embrace emerging technologies and we make a significant investment in R&D to be positioned for future growth. This year we launched the next generation of FAST-PASS and A-PASS Mobile wireless hand-held Identity Management Solutions. We are committed to be the leader in Identity Management Systems by providing innovative solutions, expert installation, comprehensive training and superior customer service.
