Advantages of Biometric Time Attendance System over Conventional RFID card based Time Attendance system
RFID based time attendance system inherently have a security vulnerability that is easily exploited by dishonest employees. This is because the RFID access credential is basically a form of authentication based on what the concept of verifying what the authenticating personnel possesses. Problems happen when this authorization credential, perhaps in the form of a Key fob, Badge or Card to fall into the wrong hands if it was stolen, forged or falsified. With a Biometric based time attendance system, it would be impossible for employees to fool the system and perform buddy punching as it is impossible for the biometric credential, such as the fingerprint or facial feature geometry to be transferable between another employee. Because of this, biometric authenticating is a reliable method of ensuring that the actual personnel is physically present during the authenticating and not someone else. In a situation where an employee reported late for work, a biometric time attendance system will be able to prevent buddy punching and therefore register a late arrival time for that particular employee. This allows you, the business owner to only fairly pay for the actual hours that your employee worked for and nothing more.
What is Time Theft ?
Very often to cheat the system, employees can commit time theft by committing either one of the following:
1. Buddy Punching
1. Buddy Punching to Cover Up Absenteeism, Lateness
Perhaps your employee is known to be often late for work. To ensure that his lack of punctuality is not captured in the system, he passes his Staff RFID Smartcard to his colleague who would then help him to clock in at the required work start time. Other situations where buddy punching typically occurs, is when employees try to cover up for a colleague who is absent for work, by helping to clock in his timing using the Employee Proximity ID Smartcard that was passed to him.
2. Clocking Early
2. Clocking in Early to Register Extra Hours
Sometimes employees may reach the office early and clock in before their official start time in an attempt to clock in extra hours. This problem can be prevented by configuring the time attendance program to ensure that the clock in and clock out time coincide with the official start and end time of the work period that is being scheduled.
3. Clocking of Extra Overtime Hours
3. Clocking of Unauthorized Extra Overtime Hours
In other scenarios, employees may intentionally clock out late in an attempt to capture extra unapproved paid Overtime hours for which that they did not do any actual work. With a careful configuration and use of the shift management function built-in the time attendance system, you can ensure that employees are able to only clock extra hours only for Overtime which has been authorized by the supervisor.
Features & Benefits of Biometric Time Attendance System
1. Increase Productivity
1. Boost Employee Workforce Productivity
At a deeper level, a time and attendance system function not just serves the sole purpose of ensuring employees work the number of hours they are required, and at the location, they are supposed to work.
An accurate record of hours work can, in fact, increase workforce productivity as employees know that their hours worked and overtime hours worked are accurately accounted for.
This gives employees the assurance that the company will not shortchange them for their efforts and gives employees the motivation to work harder.
2. Boost Accountability & Compliance
2. Increase Employee Attendance Accountability & Compliance
Employees at all levels within an organization are required to not work more than a certain number of hours in compliance with the current Manpower laws to protect the health and life safety of employees.
Having a web-based Biometric time and attendance system helps to provide an accurate data log of employee hours clock which can be used as a proof of compliance with manpower regulations.

Major Types of Biometrics Credential used in Time Attendance Tracking
Biometric-based systems generally provide you with the highest degree of security verification as the nature of the credential is based on the person’s body physiological characteristic which is not transferable or duplicable. Below are some of the major types of biometric credentials which have been successfully used by time attendance technologies to serve as an effective to workforce management solution today.
1. Fingerprint/Thumbprint Impression
1. Fingerprint/Thumbprint Impression Credential
The use of Fingerprint recognition in standalone fingerprint time attendance system as a form of biometric credential is at present the most widely accepted method of identity authentication adopted by the security access control identification technologies due to its Read Accuracy, Cost-effectiveness, Speed, Non-intrusive User interfaces, and Reliability.
The use of a fingerprint scanner attendance system is an ideal way to verify personnel’s identity as no two fingerprints are identical, making them unique to each and every individual.
A fingerprint impression that is optically captured by a fingerprint clock in system is characterized by a unique series of ridges bifurcation, ridge ending, furrows and minutiae point which makes it unique to the person.
In addition, the very fact that fingerprint is an immutable bodily feature make it hard or near impossible for it to be modified, forged or manipulated.
2. Face Recognition
2. Face Geometry Recognition Authentication
Facial recognition machine technology used in a face recognition attendance systems are built on computer programs that analyze images of human facial features with the intent of personnel identification. The program takes a facial image, measure characteristics such as separation distance between the eyes, nose length, and the jaw width. This measurement is taken together to create a unique identity credential template.
It is base on this reference template that the face facial recognition software authenticates the facial image captured. A positive match is detected if the similarities between the captured image and the template have a similarity score above a preset threshold.
3. Hand Palm Authentication
3. Hand Palm Geometry Biometric Authentication
4. Finger Vein Biometric
4. Finger Vein Reader Biometric Technology
Finger vein is a more advanced alternative to biometric fingerprint impression credentials which enables a faster identification of personnel.
It involves capturing of each employee’s finger vein patterns using a PC-based biometric time clock attendance system that interfaces with a time and attendance management software.
How does it Work
A scanner with near-infrared light is used to capture an image of the biometric finger vein identity pattern beneath the user skin surface.
The image of the Vascular vein pattern is used by the thumbprint attendance system as the basis for identification of the user during authentication of the user authentication.
Benefits Finger Vein Biometric Authentication
Some of the advantages of using a Biometric finger vein identification technologies include:
1. Contact-free identity authentication
As there is no contact with the sensor, this type of biometric technology has Non-invasive and hygienic characteristics.
2. Secure, Reliable & Error-Free Authentication
This is a Fool-proof method of authentication with minimal false positive reads as the scanning Scans below the skin surface. It is not affected by dirty fingers, Wet fingers or fingers with surface abrasion.
Thus a successful imaging and recognition of the user’s biometric Vein pattern are not dependent on the surface quality of the user’s fingers.
