Any workplace that requires an employee to be physically present is a prime candidate for biometric time and attendance technology. Healthcare clinics, retail spaces, construction sites—these are just some of the jobs that demand staff be present for work according to a set schedule. It’s especially important on large projects with multiple overlapping shifts. A payroll dispute due to an error in record keeping can cost administrative time, but with automated and accountable records, based on the strong identity assurance of biometrics, such a possibility can be minimized if not outright eliminated.
Schools and educational institutions are also ripe for biometric attendance. Such solutions can ensure students taking online courses are in fact the ones taking tests and participating in online discussions. In physical lectures, biometric systems can track large populations in student attendance, ensuring mandatory classes are attended and exams are actually taken by enrolled students.
