Biometric Clocking Systems

Accurate Tracking and Enhanced Data Security

uAttend offers a variety of clocking-in methods that leverage employees’ biometric data, including fingerprint and facial recognition scanners. Among these, fingerprint clocking is the most popular, widely used across industries such as construction, manufacturing, retail, and hospitality.

Main Benefits of Biometric Clocking Systems

Biometric clocking systems effectively prevent time fraud and buddy clocking, ensuring that only the actual employee can clock in and out.

These systems guarantee precise payroll calculations for staff and accurate billing for clients, reducing errors associated with manual time tracking.

Employers gain peace of mind knowing that biometric time and attendance systems offer almost no margin for error. This reliability is crucial, especially for businesses with remote workers.

Privacy and Data Protection

It’s important to note that no fingerprint or facial images are stored on the system. This feature alleviates employees’ privacy concerns and ensures compliance with data protection regulations, providing a secure and trustworthy solution for both employers and employees.

By integrating biometric clocking systems, businesses can significantly enhance both efficiency and security in their time tracking processes.

Biometric fingerprint systems provide precise time tracking, reduce time theft, and improve workplace efficiency by ensuring accurate clock-ins and outs.

How do Biometric Fingerprint Systems Work?

  • Employee Registration: An administrator registers an employee’s fingerprint using the biometric clocking-in machine.
  • Unique Code Creation: The uAttend software generates unique codes related to the fingerprints.
  • Secure Storage: These codes are securely stored on the uAttend system and cannot be reverse-engineered.
  • Clocking In / Out: When clocking in, the live fingerprint scan is compared to the stored code. A match allows the employee to clock in or out.

Biometric facial recognition systems streamline time tracking, boosting workplace productivity through quick, accurate, and hygienic clock-ins and outs.

How do Biometric Facial Recognition Systems Work?

  • Facial Triangulation: Key points of an employee’s face are triangulated and stored as a unique code.
  • Clocking In / Out: The scanned face is compared to the stored algorithm during clocking in or out.
  • Match Verification: A match allows the employee to clock in or out successfully.

Facial recognition is quick, easy, contactless, and highly hygienic.

Setting up Your uAttend Biometric Clocking Systems

Seamlessly Manage Time with uAttend’s Biometric Clocking System

In our experience, when installing a new time attendance system of this nature, it is usually a good idea to inform staff about exactly how biometric clocking machines work, so they are reassured that there are no personal privacy or security issues to worry about.

Our friendly UK-based support team can provide you with information to send out to staff if required. Don’t forget, support is all part of your monthly uAttend subscription – not an extra.

Signing up is quick and easy:

  1. Purchase the fingerprint or facial recognition machine/s you need from our shop. If you order before 11:00AM Monday – Thursday you’ll usually receive them the next day via courier.
  2. When your clocking machines arrive, sign-up online for your uAttend monthly subscription and follow the simple account and clocking machine set-up instructions.
  3. We will then arrange a free follow-up training session to make sure your uAttend biometric system is working the way you want it to.

* There’s a GSM web-based clocking option for our machines which is handy for sites with little or no network connectivity such as construction site clocking.
