Biometric time and attendance systems improve central government employees’ efficiency

Biometric Time and Attendance clocking systems

Central government employees are spending nearly twenty minutes extra in office every day after a biometric time and attendance system was installed across multiple offices across New Delhi, a news report on the matter has been able to reveal.

If this is converted into working days, with an average of 8.5 hours per working day, the gain is equivalent to an additional workforce of almost 1,900 employees every single day.

“Ever since the system was launched, the average presence time in office of the registered employees has risen by about 20 minutes per day. Considering that over 47,000 employees are using it now, an average gain of 20-minutes per day means an approximate gain of 16,000 man-hours,” said a government official.

Currently, 387 organisations have implemented a biometric time and attendance system, but the project is being expanded to all government offices. While using the system is still not mandatory, it is expected that, once that happens, the average presence of employees will increase further by 15 to 20, according to the analysis.

Biometric time and attendance systems can bolster employee efficiency

Tensor has an extensive level of experience in the field of biometric time and attendance systems, so it can help you install the most secure and reliable biometrics equipment, while in the same time keeping within your set budget for this task.

We offer a range of biometric time and attendance systems designed specifically for those looking for a comprehensive solution that integrates both access control and time and attendance functions, 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.

These biometric time and attendance systems come packed in a very elegant and stylish case, while in the same time being extremely easy to use. Plus, they’re very easy to interconnect with our proximity card access scanners, allowing users to mix fingerprint reading and non-fingerprint reading scanners on the same security network.

Government authorities searching for a solution to manage multiple employee management systems installed in various locations should also consider advanced systems featuring Telephone Clocking modules that enable staff to call in from remote locations to clock IN or OUT or review their flexitime balance or remaining holiday entitlement. After entry of their pass code, an automated, spoken menu guides employees to the option they require.

Enforcing a higher level of security is also very important for the system’s functionality. Users should be restricted to menu options granted to them, structured around pre-installed configurable “roles”. Restrictions by sub section or at a topic level should also be available.
