Non-contact Time & Attendance for the new COVID-19 Workplace

Offices and businesses around the world are welcoming back employees to a new working environment. COVID-19 has had a profound effect on the way we work. For those companies who cannot implement work-from-home systems, ensuring a safe and healthy workplace is vital. Masks, social distancing and increased cleaning and disinfecting are some of the new requirements of a safe workplace. Technology also plays a role in fighting the spread of the virus.

As biometric technology has improved, many organisations have adopted fingerprint or facial recognition hardware as part of their Time & Attendance solution. Biometric time and attendance systems reduce payroll fraud by eliminating “buddy punching” – the practice of employees checking in for each other.

Face recognition technology is becoming more popular thanks to its lower cost, limited maintenance and non-contact means of attendance tracking. Face recognition hardware is equipped with two cameras, one to capture the image whilst the other is a high-resolution infrared camera. The process of identifying an employee is very simple. Registering presence requires a user to just stand in front of the camera and get verified. The process is simple, straightforward and takes less than 2 seconds to work.

Non-contact attendance systems are used across several industries including manufacturing, hospitality, retail and office environments. AIS Technology, a leading HR solutions provider, has installed a number of these devices to increase the efficiency and effectiveness of the payroll process.
