Being able to track time & attendance accurately is one of the key reasons why construction firms turn to next-gen software. They understand that certain key features and enhancements, including the use of biometric data for clocking in and out, or switching jobs, can help:
Ensure that employees are who they say they are when they clock in/out, or change job tasks.
Manage potential payroll issues that occur when you have a mix of salaried and hourly employees working side-by-side.
Eliminate time theft and buddy punching.
Utilizing an advanced time & attendance solution that uses biometric technology offers construction firms very noticeable advantages right up front: It can help reduce labor costs, by assisting in eliminating instances of buddy punching, and other types of time theft. It can make it easier for employees to clock in and out. It authenticates workers in a more secure way.
In the past, proximity tags and swipe cards might have been ideal for managing the way that construction site personnel clock in and out. Today, it’s easy to pinpoint some of the challenges that come with tags and swipes, however:
Cards can be expensive to create, and difficult to keep track of.
When employees lose their ID tags or swipe cards, it can create a situation where your company cannot account for their hours until a new tag/card is created.
When you have dozens or hundreds of workers on site, cards and tags don’t eliminate buddy punching.
OTPS’s facial biometrics feature is built into the software. You don’t need to purchase any upgrades to unlock the biometrics feature. And, OTPS works within the range of devices. Your workers can utilize the software’s facial recognition on their own iOS or Android devices. All they need to do is download the app.
Construction sites teem with workers and activity, sometimes from morning through night. When you’re trying to manage a large site, or your firm has multiple projects going at once, with workers bouncing between them, rely on OTPS to help ensure greater clock in/out accuracy, and a more secure environment.
