Understanding Why Shifting To An Advanced Biometric System Is Worth Your Money
Posted on March 18, 2020
The biometric software uses the captured fingerprint image saved as an unretrievable computer algorithm. There is improved security while verifying and identifying the user.
We have reasons to convince you, why shifting to an advanced biometric system is worth your money.
Modern biometric technology uses multispectral imaging sensors instead of an optical sensor. The best sensors allow scanning of fingerprints ignoring dirt, grease, moisture, and sweaty layers.
Various wavelengths of light are used for getting surface and subsurface of fingerprint images. The imaging system creates a digital imaging array that is stored as a computer algorithm in the server. Since fingerprint image can never be retrieved from the system, it offers added security.
Integrate with time and attendance software
Combining biometric terminals with time and attendance software and integrating it with the attendance and payroll system can help you to keep an accurate attendance record.
Employees scan their fingerprints during clock-in and out accurately recording the duration of their working hours. On integrating the data with the payroll system, the management can easily calculate the salary/wages due.
Employees, when using methods other than biometric trackers, tend to clock each other in/out called “buddy-punching.” This results in time theft or attendance abuse harming business.
When business owners use mandatory biometric attendance systems, employees cannot duplicate information and commit time theft.
Controlled entry to restricted areas
Biometric terminals can be used for controlling unauthorized individuals to access restricted areas within the premises.
These areas comprise of rooms containing sensitive information.
Terminals at the workplace
Employees can quickly scan their fingerprints at terminals. These accurately verify and identify them against the saved images in the server and system. The biometric attendance terminals are used for recording employees’ entry and exit timings from their workplace.
These biometric attendance systems can be used with ID badges, Key fobs, PIN entry, or Swipe cards. Terminals can be selected based on the requirements of the size of the business.
● Desktop readers:
Desktop Readers, placed on a desk, are connected to the central attendance system. Employees scan their fingerprints on the desktop reader for clock-in and clock-out.
Desktop readers, costing only a fraction of the price, work as fully functional clocking terminals. Small business owners can take advantage of these low-cost desktop readers.
● PC-based clocking:
PC-based clocking utilizes a web-based application for handling attendance. After scanning fingerprints on biometric devices, employees follow the prompts on web-based applications. This information is sent instantly to the central database.
Employees view their work-schedule and send vacation/break requests. Supervisors and managers get real-time access to employees’ hours. They enforce attendance policy and handle requests for breaks.
● Proximity terminals:
Proximity terminals are wall-mounted terminals. Use these with/without inputs (key fob or swipe card) for better security.
TimeLabs offers extensive biometric attendance software, which has many useful features. Company owners can avail of this unique software to protect and to grow their business. Educational Institutions (schools and colleges) should also make use of the biometric attendance for best results.
