Post Date: May 14, 2019workforcetime-blog-future-of-attendance-management

When you are part of an organization, whether you are an employee or a manager, one thing you may already have realized is that Time is the most essential part of the organization. From coming and leaving office on time to delivering projects or finishing tasks on time, the clock plays a very important role in our lives. Essentially that is the reason why almost all of the organizations have implemented attendance marking systems.

Back in the days marking attendance was straight forward. You sign on a register every day when you enter the office premises. In larger organizations, it was an easy job to manipulate the register to falsify your actual working hours and entry time.

Fast forward a couple of years and we can see some technological advancements in attendance marking. Biometric devices like fingerprint scanner was a huge step forward. It made attendance marking almost foolproof preventing buddy punching and other hacks. But it had its own limitations and cons. Some of them to name are:

Can be only installed at stationary workplaces – For people working on site, it was not possible to mark the attendance since the punching machine needs to be mounted on a wall connected to electricity.

Hygiene Concerns – A lot of people are put off by the idea of fingerprint-based attendance devices since it raises a lot of hygienic concerns.

Bottlenecks – For bigger organizations, long queues may be formed near the punching device during the peak entry hours.

Expensive – Biometric devices don’t come in cheap. They are expensive to install and maintain.

Complex to Maintain – Non-technical people will have a hard time understanding the operations and configuration. Organizations are forced to hire experts just for managing the biometric devices.

It is evident that biometric devices still don’t solve a lot of problems. Then what is the answer? The millennials have a saying “Hey, there’s an app for that”. Guess what?
