What is Facial Recognition Time & Attendance?
A facial recognition time and attendance system has the ability to match a human face from a digital image or a video frame against a database of faces in order to clock employees in or out of shifts, giving employers an honest recording of working hours. Along with extremely high matching speeds and accuracy, a facial recognition time and attendance system also ensures the ultimate level of security for your business.
This guide explains the main features of a facial recognition time and attendance system, along with the many ways in which it can benefit your business and streamline time and attendance matters.
How facial recognition time and attendance works
A facial recognition time and attendance system is often installed at the entrance or exit of a building or in the reception area for employees to quickly clock in or out of their shift - completely contact free.
It works using computer algorithms that have the ability to distinguish certain facial features, for example, the distance between the eyes or the shape of the chin. Our facial recognition time and attendance system even works when an employee is wearing a hat and even sunglasses. Following recognition, the computer algorithms are converted and represented mathematically and then compared to data on other faces collected in the facial recognition database.
With the ability to work day or night, in any weather condition including both rain and lightning, facial recognition time and attendance is reliable and dependable no matter the weather. It can also differentiate between a real face and a photograph - so employers can rest assured their employees can only clock themselves into work.
Benefits of a facial recognition time and attendance system
Tensor’s facial recognition time and attendance system entails endless benefits for your business. This vast range of benefits includes a fast, accurate and time-efficient method of clocking employees in and out of shifts, along with an unrivalled time and attendance software which allows employers to have a clear overview of hours worked, to name a few.
Improve employee time and attendance
A form of biometric time and attendance, facial recognition systems provide employers with a fast, highly accurate and time-efficient way for their employees working on-site to clock themselves in or out of shifts. It is a contactless, completely paper-free system that gives employees an easy method of clocking shifts for those working in the office. Facial recognition time and attendance also ensures complete safety at your place of work, guaranteeing only authorised personnel, whose face matches to those stored in the database, are granted access into the building.
Advanced time and attendance system software
Tensor’s facial recognition time and attendance system is fully supported by our advanced time and attendance software, WinTA.NET. It is designed to make your life easier and streamline the day-to-day running of your business.
Tensor’s Fire Roll Call can also be linked up to your facial recognition time and attendance system to provide you with an immediate list of who is on site should an emergency evacuation occur. From the most basic 'on-site' reporting, to the individual tracking of employee’s movement between fire zone/fire assembly points, Tensor’s Fire Roll Call ensures your companies specific safety requirements are always put first, with the ability to be tailored specifically to your businesses needs.
The Self-Service Module (SSM), part of Tensor’s facial recognition time and attendance software, allows enrolled employees to clock in or out for time and attendance purposes, book themselves on or off the fire evacuation list (on or off site) via computer or their mobile phone. Employees are also able to view their current/remaining holiday entitlement, browse past absences using the simple and easy-to-use absence planner and request amendments to clockings and absence periods in the past and future. All requests must be authorised by the employee’s supervisor or line manager, who are informed about requests by email, as are employees when such requests are accepted or declined.
Facial recognition time and attendance is completely contactless
Following the worldwide COVID-19 outbreak, along with other serious viruses that can be spread across employees at the workplace, it has never been more important for businesses to have safety measures in place to help keep the spread of illnesses down. With a facial recognition time and attendance system in place, you can rest assured that your employees have a completely contactless method of clocking themselves in and out of shifts, helping to limit the spread of viruses between employees at work.
