It helps to overcome limitations of single biometric solutions to reduce the ability for the system to be tricked fraudulently. It is best, most efficient, effective and most reliable when Biometric  Technique and Magnetic Coded Swiping Card or Barcode Reader Technology is combined. A Hybrid of Structured System Analysis and Design Methodology (SSADM) and Object Oriented Analysis and Design Methodology (OOADM) was used. The software was developed using Microsoft Visual Basic Programming Language, and Microsoft Access as the database. A parallel changeover was also recommended after deployment to avoid the disruption of the existing processes.
