Biometric time and attendance systems in retail applications to record major growth, report suggests
The implementation of biometric time and attendance systems across the retail sector represents a major driver in the market and will also lead to significant growth in the next few years, a recent news report by TechNavio has been able to suggest.
Increasing numbers of organizations are implementing biometric time and attendance tracking systems as a more efficient and reliable means of payroll and HR administration.
While hygienic concerns can hinder adoption of fingerprint-based systems, TechNavio’s report also highlights emerging contactless systems as a market driver going forward.
Nevertheless, beside time and attendance tracking systems, there are other biometric systems that appear poised for growth in the retail sector too, such as facial scanning systems capable of identifying shoppers’ demographic characteristics, even allowing for more personalized in-store marketing.
Meanwhile, some retailers are already experimenting with facial recognition systems to spot shoplifters.
Tensor plc – the experts in biometric time and attendance systems
Biometric technology uses human physical attributes as locks and keys, making it particularly suitable for access control systems on the buildings of large organisations. Using biometrics for security and identification requires meeting two challenges: they must be cheap enough and sufficiently simple to be used by ordinary users.
Furthermore, for enhanced security, these biometric access control systems should combine two or more types of authentication, such as coupling fingerprints with key codes or passwords to provide greater trust that who is logging in is only who is expected to do so.
Tensor Plc, the UK’s number one manufacturer and installer of time and attendance and access control systems, supplies a range of top-range, reliable and affordable biometric time and attendance systems based on Smart Card electronics combined with a biometric fingerprint reader.
