Why EAS app is more convenient than installing Attendance Machines?


Before the evolution of technology, organizations deployed manual employee attendance systems such as a register or MS Excel. Gradually, organizations began to use time cards that employees could swipe on or in front of a machine. Biometric machines brought a major technological transition as employees could clock in and out their attendance by scanning their fingerprints, retina, or face.

While there is no doubt that attendance machines have eased out the check-in and check-out process for both organizations and employees, they have a fair share of disadvantages. Let’s understand how.

1. Cost and Space Issues in Installation

Attendance machines are expensive due to hardware, installation, and maintenance costs. Moreover, these machines need a dedicated space for installation. Hence, cost and space are major constraints, especially if you have to install these machines across various office locations or store outlets.

2. Breach of Privacy

Employees’ biometric data is vulnerable to cyber theft or fraud. You need highly sophisticated data protection technology to safeguard employee data, which again adds to the cost of an employee attendance management system.

3. Prone to Errors

The attendance machine can show errors or break down due to hardware malfunction or heavy usage. The attendance process can come to a halt till the issue is resolved, which could take days.

4. Limitations for Physically-Challenged People

Machine-based attendance trackers for employees can pose challenges for people who have lost or damaged physical parts. They may not be able to record attendance manually, swipe time cards, or scan their fingers/retina/face for accuracy.

5. Unhygienic

Most attendance machines require human contact. They have proven to be ineffective during the COVID-19 period. Employees now expect a safe and contactless attendance process from organizations.

6. Lack of Flexibility

Attendance machines require the physical presence of employees. This mechanism is no longer suitable for remote, field, or work-from-home workforce. Bid Adieu to Attendance Machines, Introducing Mobile Attendance System
