Fingerprint Time and Attendance System
Fingerprint time and attendance enables employers to say farewell to the older more conventional methods of tracking and monitoring your employees time and attendance data. How do you keep each employees time and attendance data 100% correct with no buddy punching? With our system simple fingerprints can not be transferred because each person has a fingerprint that is completely unique to them, therefore there is no hiding place for forging incorrect figures of how long they have worked or where they were at a certain time.
To use the fingerprint terminal simply place your finger on the scanner and if your fingerprint matches your biometric template then the transaction is accepted. However, if it does not accept then the wrong employee may be using the machine or using the wrong finger/thumb for the scanner.
Is privacy rights an issue? Most employees are fearful of their physical and biological rights being shared with third parties. However, once the biometric template is created then the image is discarded and there is no risk of any sensitive information being stored, which means the template cannot be reversed or engineered to recreate the physical and biological images that were captured in the first place.
Swipe Card Time and Attendance System
Despite the growth of biometric time and attendance systems in the market, swipe card still remains the most popular time and attendance system when it comes to tracking employees attendance. Equipped with RFID reader and PUSH technology this system enables your business to instantly upload to the server automatically and in real time. The biggest advantage of the swipe card time and attendance system is it doesn’t require a fingerprint. This is beneficial to those employees who have a damaged finger or have no fingerprints due to years of using abrasive materials.
A second advantage of swipe card time and attendance systems is that the swipe cards will not become worn out by continuous use on a daily basis or affected by the harsh conditions of the working environment such as dust and residue.
Now if you are looking for a time and attendance system that is highly durable, quick and easy then swipe card is the best option. However if you are looking for the ultimate reliability and accuracy of your time and attendance data then a fingerprint time and attendance system is the best solution.
