Asure Software upgrades its cloud-based biometric time and attendance solution
Asure Software has added TimeClock Basic and TimeClock Elite to its cloud-based time and attendance solutions to help businesses increase employee engagement and make a more efficient use of resources.
The workforce and workspace software solutions provider notes in its announcement that Asure’s new TimeClock series features multispectral fingerprint imaging, next-gen facial recognition and high-performance liveness detection allowing only authorized people to access the systems and preventing shared logins.
The TimeClock Basic series for small and medium-sized businesses features Silk ID biometric sensor, expanded biometrics templates storage capacity, more efficient and accurate verification, infrared detection technology and higher energy efficiency. The TimeClock Elite series works for companies of all sizes and features time clock functions and employee self-service features that allow for requesting time off, viewing schedules and access to up-to-the-minute time card information. The Elite series also allows for integration with HR Management Systems and myriad of potential new applications beyond workforce management.
“Today’s employers are spending $400 billion annually in lost productivity from the 43 percent of employees committing time theft,” says Jose Gaona, Vice President of Product Management, Asure Software. “By taking advantage of the latest biometric facial recognition technologies our new Asure TimeClock series are designed to reduce unnecessary payroll costs caused by time theft and allow employees to quickly and easily track their time – from the beginning of their workday to the end.”
While a number of lawsuits related to time and attendance systems have been filed under Illinois’ Biometric Information Privacy Act (BIPA) the French Data Protection Act has required businesses to obtain approval from the CNIL for deploying biometrics to track employees and Australia’s Fair Work Commission (FWC) recently ruled that a worker fired for refusing to use a biometric time and attendance system was unfairly dismissed.
