AFIS & APIS - Automated Fingerprint & Palmprint Identification Systems
WE HAVE A NEW WEBSITE
& APIS PrintQuest® Systems include both the Automated
Fingerprint Identification and Automated Palmprint
(AFPIS and APFIS)
agencies, which have neither AFIS & APIS in-house capabilities will find
in PrintQuest the complete solution with a fully integrated database of tenprints, palm cards and latents,
with optional mugshot accessories.
AFIS and APIS Systems, using only the AFIS Fingerprint capability and adding
a separate small to mid size APIS systems, costs less money than upgrading
the AFIS with palm capability, because of the expensive hardware associated
with large palm databases.
APIS Palm software capability is at no extra software charge, the extra
hardware, matchers (pairs of processors), Larger Servers, more WS, more Hard-Disk storage drive APIS prices higher. Consider
setting-up a 50K-100K-250K PrintQuest Palm APIS dedicated system at a
reasonable cost, very quickly instead of waiting a long time for funds to get
a large scale APIS upgrade.
But keep in
mind that Latent Palm collection at crime scenes and searching an
accurate APIS database can solve 25-35% MORE of your cases.
- A Police
force, which already owns an AFIS or has access to the AFIS of a State or
National agency, would prefer a System with Palmprint
capability only. In such a case the PC or Server-WS will be configured to
match the requirements of the palmprint database to
be built. Due to the large amount of data Palm searches are slower than
fingerprint searches, therefore APIS systems are
usually configured with more and faster processors Hard-disk space also has
to be optimized for the large palmprint images.
However creating an APIS database of Palmprints
takes LESS time than an AFIS database of ten-prints because the PrintQuest
Palm Card entry is fully automated i.e., it does not require manual checking.
the Palm database takes even less time when your police agency already has
all the card text detailed information in an AFIS (Suspect’s name, address,
case history…). So text entry into APIS may be limited to card number and
name only. Creating INDEPENDENT AFIS and APIS databases is not a problem for
most agencies, and avoids pricy upgrades to APIS of an old AFIS, in which,
accuracy does not often come along with the expensive upgrade.
What if you already have AFIS access?
Police Dept’s find it more efficient to get their own AFIS database, even
when they have access to a State AFIS. Usually slow and inaccurate, State
AFIS databases suffer from large size or LONG candidate lists (20-50-100 per
latent)!, and the limited personnel to examine these
lists in order to find the real match. We and another company are starting to
get many examples of cases not matched by State AFIS Systems, while a local
small AFIS gets a hit… This does not mean our A.F.I.S system has the same
accuracy as this other small size AFIS… Call them, Call us and compare
side-by-side. We will accept the challenge as long as you test enough latents and cards. Will THEY accept the challenge ?

our "Justification for getting your own AFIS APIS" if you have a
hard time convincing your boss that you should spend money on your own AFIS
when you have State AFIS access.
