Bodet offers Suprema biometric workplace solution for integration, OnShift launches selfie software
Bodet is offering Suprema’s biometric time clock product FaceStation 2 to its customers to integrate with its Kelio Visio X7 interactive clocking terminal, combining advanced facial recognition an fingerprint biometrics, according to the company announcement.
Face biometrics are particularly appropriate to manufacturing and agricultural industries in which working conditions could compromise the accuracy of fingerprint time and attendance systems, Bodet says in the press release. The process is also contactless, and therefore complies with COVID-19 transmission prevention guidelines.
FaceStation 2 provides accurate face recognition regardless of indoor lighting conditions with infrared illumination, and stores biometric data as encrypted templates, which Bodet says helps with compliance to data protection rules and GDPR.
The Kelio Visio X7 terminal FaceStation 2 integrates with provides holiday time remaining data, access to personnel reports, and personal messaging, and supports leave requests. Time-stamped employee records can be stored locally or in the cloud for real-time indication of attendance, and daily reports can be generated with Bodet’s Kelio Time and Attendance software.
“We are delighted to announce this latest development to our comprehensive range of clocking in systems,” comments Bodet Managing Director Richard Manby. “Kelio X7 is customisable so can be tailored to meet specific requirements, while its inherent flexibility means it can benefit a wide range of industries from manufacturing and logistics to care homes and customer service centres. The addition of facial recognition now provides even greater functionality to what is probably the most versatile time and attendance system available.”
OnShift launches mobile device-based biometric workforce management
OnShift has launched facial recognition workforce management tool OnShift Time to replace legacy time clocks with modern, mobile, contactless biometrics.
Employees can punch in or out by taking a biometric selfie with a mobile device, centralized tablet, or combination of both. Combined with OnShift’s solutions for scheduling and employee engagement, OnShift Time gives healthcare companies a purpose-built workforce management solution.
Ben Bartoszek, director of HRIS for Signature HealthCARE, an early adopter OnShift, says the solution provides real-time, actionable insights enabling reduced labor costs and streamlined payroll processes.
“Traditional approaches to workforce management are no longer effective. OnShift Time replaces expensive, old-school strategies with a fresh, innovative, streamlined solution that engages employees while improving the bottom line,” stated Mark Woodka, CEO of OnShift. “The addition of OnShift Time to our next-generation human capital management platform advances our commitment to the post-acute healthcare industry by delivering an exceptional employee experience through modern and purpose-built software solutions.”
The use of facial recognition provides convenience as well as assurance of safety to healthcare professionals, 65 percent of whom say fear and safety concerns due to COVID-19 are among the most critical challenges for employees. In addition to contactless processes, OnShift provides pre-screening questionnaires for businesses.
