Biometric identification: A sure-fire way to guarantee accurate data

Embrace the cutting-edge solution for efficient management of employee time and attendance - harnessing workers' unique biometric data for precise hour tracking, commonly known as biometric clocking.

Here's the exciting part: Your employees always keep their faces and hands with them, unlike RFID cards or fobs, which employees often forget, misplace, or lose. Furthermore, among the range of biometric clocking methods, fingerprint and facial recognition scanners take the lead as the preferred choices. They powerfully drive productivity and accuracy across various industries, including manufacturing, construction, and healthcare. Step boldly into the future of workforce management today with these exceptional solutions!

The Employee Attendance Cloud Biometric clocking includes:

  • Accurate Employee Attendance Clocking
  • Improved Payroll Accuracy
  • Flexible Clocking Options
  • Fairness and Transparency
  • Real-time View of Employee Attendance
  • Comprehensive Suite of Reporting Tools

What is biometric clocking?

Every individual on the planet possesses their unique set of biometric credentials, encompassing their fingerprints and face. In the realm of biometric clocking systems, personalised codes are stored for each employee, granting clock-in access exclusively when the presented finger or face aligns with the system's stored code for that individual.

This revolutionary technology effectively eradicates time theft and buddy clocking, marking a significant step forward

Many employers, especially those overseeing dispersed workforces across multiple sites, express their trust in employees' integrity when it comes to recording hours worked. However, regardless of the trustworthiness of your employees, inaccuracies in clock-in times and recorded hours are all too prevalent.

The implementation of biometric clocking systems virtually eliminates any room for error. This not only bestows employers with invaluable peace of mind but also assures employees of accurate compensation for their hard-earned efforts.

Although the term "biometric" might initially raise concerns among employees, these apprehensions typically dissipate as individuals gain a deeper understanding of how our clocking systems function.

It's of paramount importance to clarify that the system does not store the actual fingerprints or facial images themselves. This assurance should put employers at ease, as it eliminates any potential data protection concerns.

How does biometric fingerprint clocking work?

  • Firstly, a detailed scan of a person's finger/s is made, after which a digital image is created using the biometric shapes and contours of the skin surface. It is from this digital image that specific points are converted into a unique code, which is then used to identify employees.
  • The codes are safely stored, after further anonymisation using an algorithm for additional security, on the EAC system. For your employees' safety, they are never backwards engineerable.
  • When employees then try to clock in for their shift using a fingerprint clocking machine, the print scanned at the moment of clocking is compared to the code stored on the system. If they match, the staff member will be able to clock in or out successfully. If they do not match, they will not be able to do so. It's usually an extremely fast and efficient process.

How does biometric facial clocking work?

  • With a facial clocking machine, specialised cameras analyse faces and then, as with fingerprints, go on to create a code that is unique to each individual. This is what will then be used as identification proof.
  • There are many ways the algorithms for facial recognition can be calculated. The most common method is for the key points of a person's face to be triangulated and then stored as a unique code.
  • When employees then come to clock in, the process works in a very similar way as fingerprint clocking, in that as soon as the face is scanned, the data is compared with the code stored on the system. If it matches, the employee can successfully clock in or out.
  • An added bonus for facial recognition is the fact that it is contactless, making it both extra hygienic and ideal for professions where people need to wear gloves or have damaged hands through labour intensive work.

As with everything else, it all comes down to your business’s unique needs. If you'd like more information about biometric or any other of our employee attendance systems, simply request a free demo or contact us for a chat.
