FaceID has a typical recognition speed of less than 1 second, which is best in class and faster than most other biometric methods. As an alternative to the use of Timesheets, phone systems, Fingerprint readers and swipe technologies, a FaceID system does not trigger queues at the clocking in/out point and nor does it require manual processes to audit personnel. This drives up satisfaction for front line employees (who are then doing minimal administration), but it also increases satisfaction amongst supervisors and management who are not only sure of the correct personnel on site, but can also confirm this to clients alike who will also have concerns from time to time. Removing administration and laborious audits of personnel is a material time saving.
Moreover, payroll data is accurate. The lag or queues noted above are no more. The employee can be clocked in or out within a second of reaching the official booking point. There can be no argument about having to wait x minutes when they should have been working. There cannot be any buddy punching causing a delta between the time a client says the employee turned up or left, and when the clocking in or out time occurred. Time savings are real.
Accuracy therefore Security:
Many customers are increasingly concerned by Security. Having the correctly trained, approved operatives on site, who may have been thoroughly background checked or vetted is important. FaceID scans over 6000 data points to achieve highly accurate user identification. It is practically impossible to fool the system, so you can feel secure knowing that Timegate, together with FaceID technology will be successful at tracking time and attendance while providing better security.
Whereas other recognition systems can be affected by temporary factors, 3D face identification tends not to be; Cataracts and eye infections for Retina, wet skin, excessively dry skin or damaged fingerprints (as is the case for many manual workers) for Fingerprints, 3D facial recognition technology as offered by FaceID, is not compromised by these factors. Unsurprisingly, FaceID is compatible with 99.999% of the population.
Furthermore, FaceID devices require no physical contact, which makes them more hygienic than other biometric devices that require touch or close proximity for operation. FaceID remains effective in low-light and bright light environments and it allows staff to stand up to a metre away from the camera. It is this reliability, and the great speed advantage, that is seeing companies increasingly turning to face recognition as their biometric technology of choice.
Designed and built to be safe and easy to use, Timegate integrated with FaceID is an automated system, so as well as avoiding excessive training, you won’t have to worry about sending engineers to site on a regular basis.
There is nothing more convenient than using FaceID. There’s never the worry of the technology being inaccessible because of a forgotten swipe card, as quite simply, you cannot forget your face! Simply look into the camera of a FaceID reader and the job is done.
While the actual cost of swipe card / badge readers is relatively inexpensive, the ongoing cost of replacing cards, badges and fobs can be high over a year. As FaceID biometric technology has no associated consumables and extremely high product reliability rates, the total cost of ownership becomes a compelling alternative.
By combining the benefits of FaceID and Timegate, Innovise customers can bolster their bottom line, minimise the requirement for administration overhead and give their managers peace of mind around security, allowing them to focus on deploying their workforce more effectively when and where the business needs it.
