An organisation can only operate with a team of employees. In order to make sure the employees are working for the success of the company, biometric time and attendance systems can be used. Time and attendance system are most suited for offices with a large number of employees to keep them in check.
What are some of the benefits of biometric time and attendance system?
1. Eliminate buddy-punching
Buddy-punching is when an employee asks another employee to punch in if they are late or absent, so that it adds hours even when they are not working. This happens a lot with traditional punch card attendance systems. With the biometric time and attendance system, employees won’t be able to do buddy-punching because the system only recognises each person’s unique fingerprint. Employee cannot cheat their working time anymore.
2. Quick and accurate
One of the benefits of Soyal time and attendance system is its ability to identify an employee’s fingerprint efficiently. The Soyal AR837EF model is able to check 1000 fingerprint templates in 0.7 seconds, which makes recording attendance quick and easy. If you arrive right on time, it only takes a few seconds to clock in, ensuring that you won’t be late. Furthermore, the system accurately identifies unique fingerprints that belong to each different individual.
3. Increase productivity
When employees work fixed hours, productivity will increase too as there is less time wasted. One person in a team who cheats working hours can cause the whole team to slow down, followed by the whole department, then the company. With Soyal’s biometric time and attendance report track employee’s late in, early out and long break to help improve employee productivity. An increased productivity will bring higher profitability to company in the long run.
When integrated with security systems such as door locks and CCTV, this type of time and attendance system benefits the organisation in many ways. Doors to the office or rooms will only open when registered users scan their fingerprints on the device. Therefore, it prevents outsiders from entering the premise without permission, further eliminating theft, burglary or other form of harm towards employees. CCTV camera can take picture snapshot of every entry and exit as visual evidence.
5. Develop responsible employees
If an employee’s attendance is affecting their work performance, it can be clearly seen on their attendance report generated by the biometric time and attendance system. Absence, lateness and overtime breaks of every individual in the company can be clearly checked by the HR Department. A decrease in performance may cause them to get a warning from superiors and also a reduction in salary. When they realise that their attendance is causing problems to their job, employees tend to be more responsible in managing their time. Ultimately a good biometric time attendance system can help each employee to accomplish more task during everyday working hours.
