Many Configurations

Desktop & Jumpkit

FbF LiveScan can be adapted to any work environment. In most cases, only a computer and fingerprint scanner are necessary. Stationary environments work best with desktop-type computers but kiosks are also available. To be more mobile, set up with a laptop or even "jumpkit" in a portable, wheeled hard case.
