Biometrics Attendance Integration


In every type of organization, the Human Resource department manages, tracks, and maintains the attendance entries of every employee. There are many attendance methods by which employees can mark their attendance, out of which Biometrics is widely used to render accurate clock-in and clock-out timings.

What is Biometrics Attendance System and how does it work?

A Biometrics Attendance System requires a biometric device that is used to verify the employees’ identity by fingerprints, facial recognition, voice patterns, and/or iris recognition. These characteristics are then referred to the data inside the system to match and confirm the employee's identity.

Biometric Attendance Systems are used to avoid buddy punches as it is impossible to replicate a person’s biological identity. With this level of security, employees can only be paid if they truly spend their time working for an organization to reach their desired goals.
