Iris ID announced Kurt Wherley has joined the organization as director of sales for workforce management, North America. Wherley, who has more than 30 years of experience with time and attendance solutions, will develop new customers and support the sales channel for Iris ID’s recently launched IrisTime™ biometric-based workforce management platforms.

“Kurt’s vast experience provides him with deep insights into the workforce management needs of small businesses to enterprise organizations throughout North America,” said Mohammed Murad, vice president, global sales and business development, Iris ID.

“We’re confident he will drive dramatic growth for our time and attendance solutions.”

Previously, Wherley worked for 17 years with Schlage Biometrics, most recently as a national account manager, time and attendance, working with customers to offer complete workforce management solutions.

At Iris ID, he will oversee the North American sales of IrisTime, which offers a new technique for authenticating employee identity by using a fusion of iris and face recognition to increase accuracy and convenience.

The open Android-based platform accommodates hundreds of current time and attendance applications while also enabling independent software vendors (ISVs) to create custom software solutions meeting specific organizational needs. The contactless platform ships with a standard app capable of meeting the needs of many organizations.

Wherley said the opportunity to work with a rapidly growing international company with an innovative time and attendance platform greatly appealed to him.

“Iris ID is recognized as the leading innovator and provider of flexible iris-based, biometric identity authentication solutions,” he said.

“Now, the company is revolutionizing the time and attendance function with an accurate and flexible platform designed for today’s modern workforce. This position is a great fit for me and my experience in workforce management.”
