What are the gaps at present?

Physical contact with the sensor is necessary to read a finger or a palm print. This means, for about 200 staff, a terminal would have been touched about 400 times in a day. Long nails, stains, broken skin, injuries, worn out finger prints, could all become a problem. It is a serious concern about hygiene and health, especially under the present circumstances.
Research has found that buddy punching costs US employers more than $373 million each year. Buddy punching is time theft. As a business owner, that is time you are paying for. What if a card falls in the wrong hands? It could pose a security risk.
Biometric terminals and card readers have high fixed costs and require support & maintenance. Fixed infrastructure forces you to comply with existing standards and leads to vendor lock-in. Biometric data is generally decentralized and not easily accessible between locations. Additionally, lost smart cards add to the cost overheads.
As a biometric terminal or scanner undergo numerous physical contacts each day, their effectiveness gradually decreases due to wear and tear. Multiple attempts may be required before an attendance is recorded. Labor attendance is prone to errors due to worn out finger prints especially for those working under harsh conditions.
With limited number of biometric terminals or smart card readers, a queue hold-up is certain in the mornings and evenings. This could cause delays and consequent productivity loss
Tele-working has become the new mantra. In an office, some may work from home and some may come to office depending on the circumstances. Attendance tracking can therefore suffer.

Face recognition fills the gap

Deploy Facial Recognition Software and move ahead with the times. Facial recognition techniques have come a long way in terms of performance and affordability and are an answer to the limitations of the conventional systems.

For an MNC aligned with modern technology, Facial Recognition is the best step forward.
Accurate count of labour employed at various project sites is now possible with Facial Recognition, for a large construction company spread across the country.
The pharmaceutical company where hygiene is of utmost importance, replacing the present Palm Print terminals with Facial Recognition, is the right step.
Some may work from home and some from office. Facial Recognition is the easy way to track the attendance irrespective of where the staff is working from.
Microsoft Azure Cognitive Services ecosystem has now made it affordable to build facial recognition software, which is safe, secure and accurate.
