system boosts security of schools

A TOUCH screen sign-in system created in Yorkshire is helping schools across the country to keep track of people coming in and out of their buildings.

Osborne Technologies developed its EntrySign product to log visitors at its own base on Fall Bank Industrial Estate, in Dodworth, near Barnsley.

Just over a year on, the firm's engineers have installed the system in 50 schools and colleges.

Specialist advisers from Enterprising Barnsley, which offers free support to high-growth local companies, are helping

Osborne Technologies to structure expansion across the UK and Ireland.
