Groupe.io leverages ThumbSignIn biometrics for deskless workforce app



Mountain View-based mobile communication app Groupe.io has added new biometric functions tailored for employees who are part of a deskless workforce to optimize and make their daily activities more efficient, writes Hotel Management.

Following a strategic partnership with FIDO-based omnichannel authentication platform ThumbSignIn, Groupe.io now allows biometric login for faster access. Workers can use fingerprint scanners or face ID on their phones to log in on iOS, Android and Web platforms.

Groupe.io assures the information is neither stored nor send to a third-party, however the company collects user data through its mobile platform and analyzes it to deliver insights.

By integrating automation feature such as biometric authentication, task manager and data checklist, employees will be able to consolidate their workload. Managers can use the tool to assign tasks, set deadlines and priorities, and track progress.

Group.io says the new features assist enterprises with compliance operations and security, and claims to deliver analytics-based feedback on workforce management to boost productivity.

“Managers and supervisors at deskless companies have found it increasingly difficult to track assigned tasks, deadlines, status updates and follow-ups on a daily basis,” Praveen Kanyadi, Groupe.io co-founder and VP of product, said in a statement. “This leads to work piling up, frequent delays and urgencies not being met, which then results in increased clutter, lower efficiency and mounting business costs, which directly impacts a company’s bottom line. Groupe.io’s new employee efficiency features help resolve these issues to streamline work and make employees more proficient.”

In a guest post for Biometric Update, ThumbSignIn VP of Products Aman Khanna recently explained that FIDO2 already enables people to use on-device biometrics for online authentication, but adoption of the protocol is being hindered by bureaucracy and perception problems.
