We are all interested in ensuring a secure, accurate, and efficient environment for our business, and biometric technologies are just perfect for this purpose. The system uses unique traits for identification making it comfortable and safe at the same time to take visitors or attendees to the next level. How to use biometric technologies for attendance and visitor management?

Why do you need a visitor management system?

There are plenty of various features that can be used for secure visitor access, including barcode, RFID, face scan, fingerprint, or iris recognition. It’s a great tool to ensure secure visitor access. Are you waiting for an appointment? There’s nothing easier than the visitor management system for pleasant interaction with visitors. 

It’s not only safe and hygienic with automated access control, but it also provides online pre-appointments and real-time visitor analytics.

Safe and hygienic access for visitors

During the pandemic, we all experienced the importance of public places disinfection, after all, is a door handle as clean as you believe it is? When we are willing to visit a friend or go to an appointment, we don’t want to touch a doorbell used by dozens before us.

With a biometric visitor management system, you decide who you want to give access to, and you don’t have to be afraid of touching the surface of a doorbell.

Employee attendance tracking

A biometric visitor management system is a great tool for employee attendance tracking. Select a biometric modality that suits your organization’s needs and preferences, choosing from common options, such as fingerprint recognition, facial recognition, iris scanning, and even palm vein recognition. The choice should definitely consider the comfort of users, speed, and hygiene. 

The integration of the biometric attendance system with your existing infrastructure, attendance software or HR management systems for data integration and record keeping.

Database creation

In the case of using a biometric visitor management system or employee attendance tracking, you need to start with building a database of visitors and employees. Enrol employees’ biometric data into the system by capturing high-quality images. 

With your employees, you will get a record of their attendance, without the possibility of buddy punching. You can easily award those employees that are always on time, or punish those who are constantly late. 

When using the system for visitor access, you will also be satisfied with the database, which gives you insight into the people who come close to your house without your authorisation.
