Deputy introduces contactless biometric workforce management toolkit
Workforce management software developer Deputy has released a workforce management toolkit with a touchless time clock, biometric facial recognition and voice commands, the company announced.
The toolkit includes four products: Touchless Clock-In, Video for Newsfeed for video communication, Labor Optimization for wage cost tracking, and Pay by Area for payment based on skills, capabilities and roles.
Touchless Clock-In is activated on Deputy kiosks that use facial recognition and voice commands to improve employee experience, prevent them from having to touch the screens, and keep accurate records of overtime and breaks.
Video in News Feed enables fast and personal communication between teams. Videos can be recorded to help with trainings for new procedures, to introduce new staff members and help with remote procedures. Labor Optimization gives a clear overview of how performance is going and provides metrics for informed decisions. Pay by Area helps companies comply with government regulations and consumer demand, and come up with different payment rates.
“We are proud to introduce this new suite of products to support our customer base and, in particular, shift workers, in critical, timely areas of hygiene (touchless clock in), staff communication (video-based workplace feed), survivability (real-time wage cost tracker) and workforce flexibility (pay by area of work),” said Deepesh Banerji, Head of Product, in a prepared statement. “We expect these new capabilities to enable shift-based workforces to run more effective operations during difficult times — with workforces under immense pressure to keep our cities functioning, communities moving and economy running in these dire times.”
A number of other companies have released contactless biometric access control offerings in recent months, with Invixium just one recent example.
