Clocking a colleague in for work just got a little harder if the time card has been substituted with a fingerprint.
Business service provider ProcessingPoint recently launched a biometrics based employee recognition system called UAttend. The application monitors employee attendance in the workplace and uses a fingerprint instead of the usual time card.
In 2008, a study by Nucleus Research revealed that almost 20% of employees adapted a “buddy system” when clocking in for work. The earlier worker would take his colleague’s time card and punch him in, leaving companies no way of knowing if their employees are coming to work late.
Getting an advanced biometric attendance system into a large company forces employees to come to work on time and also eradicates the “buddy punch system”.
The technology developed by ProcessingPoint will not only stop employee tardiness, but those who are assigned in the field may be able to check in remotely. They can simply go to an assigned spot by the company and punch in.
This feature can save businesses a great deal of costs such as gas, and also ensures that their employees out on the field do not come to work late.
Established in 2005, ProcessingPoint is a Business Service Provider (BSP) delivering cost-effective business enhancement products and services to small and medium sized businesses, such as payment and payroll processing, time and attendance, and accounting.
