4 Major Disadvantages of a Biometric Attendance System

A couple of years earlier,the Biometric Attendance System gained the tsunamic popularity in the organization of varying domains. And the biometric attendance was considered as the best alternative to all hitherto available recognition devices. At that time, no one had ever thought even in the wildest dream that the world would soon start its search for the other panacea in this regard.

Although, the global outbreak of the COVID-19,has madeit mandatory to discontinue the finger touch system (biometric attendance system) from the office. But apart from this severing issue, there are lots of other problems linked with this system. So in the wake of our new search, we must develop one device addressing all the loopholes present in the currently functioning system. KENT has come out with another breakthrough device, KENT CamAttendance, which will fixevery drawback present in the attendance system.

In this article, we will look into fourmajor disadvantages of the biometric attendance system, along with comparing it with the KENT CamAttendance. It will bust all your myths related to the KENT CamAttendance and will give insights into this inevitable device of the future.

Disadvantages linked with the biometric attendance system

  • Security breach-
    The biometric system maintains only the list of the person which is fed from the management. It doesn’t record the details of any person who tried unwanted entry. The biometric system working process is simple, either it gives access or does not allow the person. However, the KENT CamAttendance- a facial recognition attendance device not only registers the attendance. But it also maintains the list of the person who tried getting the unwanted access in your office. It maintains this detail with the photo of those persons. So the KENT CamAttendance is a step ahead in the field of giving security to your organization. It is a device with 2GB RAM and 32 GB ROM, which saves data in the machine for 30 days, and 2 years in the cloud server.

  • Accuracy-
    The biometric attendance, which is linked with the fingerprint,is undoubtedly considered as the best in terms of accuracy. But the fingerprint reader assigned on the biometric system more often malfunction with the change in seasons, weather, and climate. Mostly in the winter season, we have rough and flaky skin, and it doesn’t register the attendance. However, the KENT CamAttendance which is AI-based- a facial recognition attendance device. It works purely on a TOUCHLESS basis. So it operates independently of any changes in seasons, climate, weather, and temperature. The master data of the Biometric attendance system is also subject to cybersecurity issues. The biometric details like a fingerprint, iris details, palm veins, and more, subjected to hack, it may cause a personal setback. The CamAttendance works with an end-to-enddata encryption facility. Here all data is directly saved on the fully protected cloud server.The biometric attendance system misreads in the dust, dirt prone office location.  Whereas, CamAttendance has Media TekHelio A22, quad-core, 2.0 GHz processor which works with 99.99% accuracy. It gives a highly accurate performance even in the dust, dirt office location.

  • Convenience-
    The obsolete biometric attendance system does not give any comfort to bigger firms, with a thousand employees, and multiple office locations. Generally, the biometric system creates long queues of employees waiting to give their impression, both in the morning and in the evening. It even doesn’t provide any flexibility of the cloud app and mobile app. KENT CamAttendance offers multiple facilities like multiple device linked ecosystems. It comes with both the cloud app and the mobile app. Here mobile app gives flexibility to the employees to register their attendance from their mobile at anytime from anywhere.

  • Return on investment (ROI)-
    The biometric attendance system works only on the surface level. It just stores the list of biometric information of employees and nothing else. However, the KENT CamAttendance comes with long lists of advantages which eventually increases the return on investment (ROI). This TOUCHLESS and fully facial attendance recognition system not only maintains the list of all employees, but it can be linked with the HRMS of any organization. And thus, it changes from being an ordinary recognition device to managing the substantial work of the human resource and the accountingdepartment of any organization. It controls the leave details, and thus the salary structure of the employee.

Although currently there is a massive demand for a TOUCHLESS attendance system to deal with the COVID-19 pandemic. But as we are advancing in our technological exposure, the KENT CamAttendance will ultimately replace all other attendance devices, even the biometric attendance system. So it will be a wise decision to switch with this futuristic model of the recognition system. KENT CamAttendance has sorted out all problems and loopholes present in the attendance system till date. So this device is an inevitable leap which the business world is about to take.
