ATLANTA, GA--(Marketwire - January 4, 2010) - M2SYS Technology, an award-winning biometric technology research and development firm, announced today that Shelby Systems, a leading provider of financial and membership software tools for ministries and other faith-based organizations, has selected M2SYS fingerprint software and fingerprint readers for distribution to its customers.

Chosen for their exceptional reputation and vast experience in the field, M2SYS will provide Shelby Systems with Bio-Plugin™, a revolutionary fingerprint software solution that allows developers to rapidly integrate and deploy a turnkey biometrics system.
