Texas school district to deploy biometric time and attendance solution for hourly workers
San Benito school district in Texas is purchasing a fingerprint software system to track the time and attendance of its hourly employees from identiMetrics, and hopes to have the technology deployed to all of its schools and work sites by October, GovTech reports.
The system is expected to cost $179,413, and district Superintendent Nate Carman says it will make the employee sign-in process more efficient.
“We looked for a system whether it was biometric or otherwise to feed into our payroll system so we could cut back on the paperwork and be more efficient,” says Carman. “Using this type of clocking in and out will eliminate some paper and it will eliminate supervisors having to go manually approve overtime.”
There are 15 school districts and charter schools in the area that use identiMetrics, the company’s Chief Financial Officer and Co-founder Anne Marie Dunphy said, according to GovTech.
Last year a Pennsylvania school district selected identiMetrics to prove to the Federal Government how many students are using its free meal plan.
