Included among the many benefits of time management software are improved workforce efficiency, reduction of costs and lower expenses. According research by the American payroll association businesses can expect to see immediate savings of 9% upon implementation of time management software.
While many time management software solutions reduce organisational errors and improve scheduling efficiency they don’t all necessarily prevent wage fraud practices such as “Buddy Punching”. Buddy Punching is when an employee clocks in a work colleague who is absent. In a large company this kind of activity can be costly if not checked.
Biometrics measure unique features such as fingerprints. Unlike with swipe cards and punch cards the specific employee is required to be present to clock in. time management software with integrated biometrics is a foolproof method of preventing Buddy Punching and other workplace fraud.
Time Management Software allows biometric capabilities to be integrated. This provides a range of biometric devices to be integrated with time management software. Desktop fingerprint readers are available that plug into a computer’s USB port. Employees can log in directly from their workstation.
Advance Systems supplies time management software compatible biometric time-clocks that use Lumidigm multispectral imaging. Lumidigm multispectral imaging scanners give accurate readings in any environment. This means they can be used externally on building sites or on the outside of buildings. This can be used to clock in employees as they enter and leave a building.
Not only can biometrics integrated time management software increase workforce efficiency, it also improves workplace security. The biometric scanners can be used to confirm an individuals identity to make sure access fobs and key codes are being used by the authorised personnel. A key card or fob used alone could be used by unauthorised individuals. Scanners can also be used to restrict access to controlled areas of a building.
Time management software with integrated biometrics provides superior accuracy for the tracking of attendance and ensuring the safety of business assets. Time Management Software also ensures employee privacy since their fingerprint information is not stored on terminals and so cannot be retrieved from them.
