The world is waking up to the wonders of enterprise software. Findings by research firms reveal that enterprise application software spending is on the rise globally. Time and again, innovation along with customer-centric culture are proving to be a winning combination.
So is the case with Human Resources. HR activities in any organisation can be a major drain of the valuable time. With constant focus on simplifying HR operations, organisations today are looking at automating traditional HR transactions and drive business benefits across multiple HR functions. Right technology can help them keep organised. One such area of concern for most of the organisations is capturing their employees’ Time & Attendance, real-time. In the past, companies were forced to monitor attendance and hours worked using a variety of manual means that not only led to false records, but also consumed humongous time investments in reconciling the data received from a large number of work locations.
Since then the time and attendance systems have evolved and become more sophisticated. Modern time and attendance software systems take advantage of today’s sophisticated technology to monitor every employee in real-time while maintaining the data in a secure and centralised location. Integration with online payroll systems saves time and eliminates data entry errors. The benefits of modern time and attendance systems are virtually endless, truly solving the problem of tracking and tallying attendance information, and delivering real-time productivity.
From punch cards, biometrics, and GPS based tracking, the industry is now witnessing the dawn of facial recognition based time & attendance. Facial recognition technology has come a long way. Today, the next generation facial recognition technology has real world applications that are revolutionising not just time & attendance, but also several sectors including government, banking and financial and transportation industries.
Managing Timesheet booking is a tedious one, especially in companies where revenue gets billed based on time and effort invested in projects by employees. Ramco recently launched its facial recognition-based Time & Attendance (T&A) – RamcoGEEK!. No queues, no clicks, no IDs: the cameras recognise an employee’s face that is registered into the T&A system during the onboarding process of an employee, grant access and mark attendance instantly. This one-time registration even unlocks access at multiple locations in large offices, saving precious time and solving the problems associated with tailgating.
Technology is simplifying employee experience because marking attendance will now take only a couple of seconds, a welcome change from the usual delay in logging into the intranet to register attendance. This foolproof technology has incredible potential in enabling authentication in a flash, accurately capturing the identity of employees entering the premises.
