As your business grows it can become a nightmare to know where everyone is and make sure they are where they are supposed to be. If people work different shifts or off sick it can get even worse. One of the ways to make this headache easier is to get technology involved with a time and attendance system. We’ve put together the benefits of investing in a biometric time and attendance system for your business.

Being able to track whether your employees are attending their shifts correctly can be a nightmare, especially if you have part-time and seasonal workers. With a time and attendance system you will be able give each member of staff a working pattern so you are able to track that they are doing what they are supposed to be doing. You will be able to see exactly when they entered the building and when they left.

Health and Safety

Fire regulations and health and safety can be difficult to manage if everyone is in and out all of the time at different times. A time and attendance system can allow you to always know who is in the building. It’s so easy with the swipe of a fingerprint or a scan of the iris that people not clocking out becomes a thing of the past. In the event of an evacuation you will have a much clearer view of who was in the building.

Avoid buddy clocking

If you use ID cards to allow your staff to clock in and out you could be faced with some issues. If someone isn’t going to bother turning up they might ask a friend to clock in for them to avoid getting in to trouble. Time and attendance systems that use biometric scanning can easily make this issue disappear.


If you work in food manufacturing or an industry where contamination is an issue, a biometric time and attendance system is a must. Instead of employees having to handle ID cards they can just scan their iris and not cause any cross contamination.

Easy Data Reporting

Being able to access a dashboard where you can see exactly what you need to and export it easily can save so much time. Want to see the attendance for the year for one member of staff? No problem? Want to see the attendance on a day that it snowed? Not an issue.
