Biometric Systems Provide Best Efficiency in Preventing Time and Attendance Fraud
Biometric systems are delivering the best level of efficiency in preventing time and attendance fraud, a widespread phenomenon that is costing businesses around the world billions, security and HR experts believe.
Security technology is increasingly being used to help organisations tackle challenges going far beyond controlling access to office buildings and monitoring parking lot activity. In fact, time and attendance is one of the sectors were high-level biometric access control technologies (including fingerprint and facial recognition) has become extremely popular.
Despite providing superior security and fast access, time and attendance systems relying solely on proximity cards for staff management are open to a process known as ‘buddy punching’, a scheme in which an employee clocks in and/or out for a friend who may be late or not even at work.
Plus, electronic cards may also be lost or stolen, costing additional time and money in back office expense.
Even small errors in collecting and processing employee time and attendance can add substantially to the cost of payroll, already a major expense for any organisation. In fact, studies by a leading international human resources consulting firm have shown even small payroll errors and fraud can boost operating costs by up to 10 percent.
Biometric Systems – the key to preventing time and attendance fraud
Biometric time and attendance systems are the future in the field of workforce management and access control, whether we’re talking about a person gaining access to their physical workplace or to the files stored on their computer. In fact, one could argue that the range of applications for biometric systems is only limited by the product developer’s imagination (and, of course, actual market demand).
The Tensor T32xx Biometric Clocking Unit is the best example of a biometric-based access control/time and attendance solution that covers all the bases, offering a huge array of features and functions that will meet and exceed even the most demanding customer’s requirements.
The IP-enabled all-in-one workstation can be used both for access control and time and attendance purposes, but also adds a host of additional useful features, such as Job Booking, Job Costing, Labour Hours Analysis and Security Management including quality CCTV playback.
Moreover, the Tensor T32xx can also be equipped with GPS auto location, speech output, video and mobile phone support, helping customers increase security and eliminate fraudulent clocking (which, after all, is quite an important reason of concern for most companies out there).
Extra features that add even more value to the Tensor Biometric Clocking Unit include USB Flash Stick & SD/MMC Card Storage support and USB & Network Printer Support, as well as a user friendly, multilingual GUI (Graphical User Interface) and a battery backup + Local Fail-Safe Storage for power communications loss.
