, a global enterprise workforce management software company delivers a full range of time and attendance tools for midsize and large organizations. Using both cloud based and on premise implementations, Mitrefich is combining online and mobile time clock systems with fingerprint biometric scanners and proximity cards to record employees attendance automatically. With the virus second surge peaking in the fall 2020, the businesses still need to apply contactless solutions for employees to punch the clocks on site or remotely.
While some business sectors most likely might be closed again, the other essential organizations such as construction, transportation, retail stores and food chains, airlines still operate during the pandemic and coming holiday season. While some cities are reversing opening phases back, the others have to take all measures to guarantee safety and compliance which comes with certain challenges.
When businesses have more than 100 employees it's critical not only to track their hours and locations, but also ensure their safety to prevent the spread of the virus as much as possible. Taking into account the nature of work environment, contactless time and attendance tracking tools are coming handy to meet health compliance rules, challenging environment and business tasks.
How Time Clocks Systems Have Been Used Before?
Before pandemic, workers could use biometric fingerprint scanners or readers to punch in and out at work. Now when there are strict protocols and social distancing rules, business owners need to find alternative ways to track time and attendance and manage employee absences or paid time off using the same system without traditional biometric time clocks.
What's The Solution?
Thanks to the evolving technologies that can be quickly integrated with existing systems, employees have a good choice on how they can record their time and attendance onsite. Now facial recognition with thermal screening can be used to replace fingerprint scanners. These small devices can be mounted on the wall and all employees need to do is to come closer to the screen. They don't even need to take the mask or gloves off. The face recognition system can quickly identify an employee and take the temperature in a matter of seconds. As an additional way for workers in the field facial recognition systems can be used together with web-based, mobile or text clock-in software solutions.
Face recognition systems are user friendly and easy to use. Employees would need to stand in front of the small device with a screen. After software scans the face and approved the identity it will feed data right into Time and Attendance system.
This way all data goes into one centralized system that will make it easier to generate reports for payroll. No need to install additional hardware or software.
As an additional option, a Thermal screening can be added to measure people's temperature before entering the building. One device can handle up to 5000 people.
If you are looking for web based time tracking solutions, employees can punch the clock via mobile app or SMS texts. All they need is a smartphone with the app installed to clock in when they are in the right location. Or they can send SMS to alert the system. This solution works great for remote time tracking using multiple locations, GPS tracking or geo fencing to ensure managers the workers are on site doing the job. With an integration of scheduling systems these mobile tools can significantly enhance workforce scheduling. Supervisors will be able to see staff skills , availability and flexible shifts to manage workforce more effectively and make correct decisions based on real data.
