Biometric fingerprinting isn’t a new phenomenon by any means, regardless of how high-tech and complicated it sounds. One of the reasons why it has earned so much attention in recent years is because companies are starting to implement them in their facility. The way it works is the biometric fingerprinting device captures a person’s unique fingerprint and turns it into useful data. Whether it’s for security, access control or even tracking an employee’s time, here are some of the benefits of biometric fingerprinting.
We’ve seen much greater proactive measures being taken with regards to security in workplaces recently. Having a physical key to enter a door is no longer the best way to secure your facility, since all it takes is a lost key to compromise security. With biometric fingerprinting, you can control the device to only allow people in an office if their fingerprints match what is in the database. This could be used for entering the office, specific rooms or even logging into computers or other technology.
Stricter Access Controls
When access control technicians get called to a facility, it’s usually because there’s a fear of information getting compromised, or it may have already happened. Some employees don’t need to go into a server room, so access control technicians can configure the biometric fingerprinting device to ensure the door will remain locked when those employees give their fingerprints. Virtually any type of access can be limited, so the access control technicians just need to know exactly what restrictions you need.
Track Who Enters Your Facility
Every company has different ways to track an employee’s time. Some still use the old fashioned punch clock, others enter their time electronically or may not have to enter their time at all if they are on salary payroll. If you have any suspicions that an employee may be helping out their buddy by entering their time for them when they are running a little late, then biometric fingerprinting can solve the problem. Biometric fingerprinting is one of the few ways to guarantee you know exactly when an employee arrived to work and when they left for the day. No one can steal a person’s fingerprint, so companies will always have accurate timekeeping.
