Biometric systems work by measuring features of the body that are unique to each person, thus offering greater accuracy in attendance tracking and access control applications.
How can biometrics improve time and attendance systems?
Mitrefinch can incorporate a range of biometric devices into the time and attendance system. The biometric devices can be employed as the sole means of registering attendance or used to verify identity in combination with a swipe or fob card, which must be used to gain access to pre-approved areas.
Key benefits of biometric time and attendance systems
- Prevents borrowing of cards to gain access to controlled areas
- Reduces time and attendance fraud, prevents ‘buddy clocking’
- Can be used for identity verification to ensure that the person using the card is the person authorised to use it
- Protects employees’ security: Copies of fingerprints are not stored and cannot be retrieved from the terminals
Biometrics terminals for these time and attendance systems are designed and manufactured by Mitrefinch, offering maximum flexibility in design and excellent after-sales support.
