“Go paperless”, “Go digital” are the slogans of today’s digital world.

The archaic method of managing and monitoring attendance with huge stacks of registers for hundreds of employees and generating reports of each employee attendance will be a nightmare. Courtesy to technological
advancement, many software solutions are in front of us to ease the tasks now.

Eliminate the manual methods of attendance management with “paper and ink” and revamp this system to a biometric attendance system with “scanner and biometrics”.

Biometrics-iris, face, and fingerprints have become the digital signatures to the attendance of all employees all over the world in the full spectrum of industries irrespective of brands.

These systems also can be used in 

  • Schools,
  • Colleges,
  • Educational institutes,
  • Visitor management,
  • Citizen identification 

Many designers and developers have already adopted this system and provided various feature set software applications based on biometrics.
