EDS Innoventions successfully developed and deployed a critical technology currently being used by the Bureau of Jail Management and Penology (BJMP) at its biggest jail facility – Manila City Jail.
With over 6,000 inmates, Manila City Jail receives over 500 to 1,000 visitors daily. The task of manually screening, recording and blocking visitors is painfully, laborious and tedious. A visitor normally has to spend at least 2 hours of processing time for every visit.
Under the guidance of its progressive thinking warden, Sr. Insp. RANDEL H. LATOZA and the dynamic Jr. Insp. JAYREX BUSTINERA, EDS successfully developed a biometric information system that cuts the visitor waiting time to below 10 minutes.

Aside from Manila City Jail, the System is currently installed at the following correctional facilities:
Quezon City Jail
Quezon City Annex
Special Intensive Care Area (SICA)
Zamboanga City Jail
Camp Bagong Diwa
Antipolo City Jail
The System has immensely assisted not only the BJMP but also police authorities in obtaining vital information derived from the visitor’s logs.
