Four Steps to Turn Your Security and Attendance Systems Into A Learning Experience

kidsAttendance software and visitor management systems are vital for schools and many businesses—however, they can be intimidating, especially for young kids. Whether you’re drafting a lesson plan or coordinating a “bring your child to work” day, use these tips to help make your digital systems into a learning experience and inspire the next generation!

Offer resources on how the tech works

Fingerprint and other identification and access technology is the stuff of spy movies.Let your inner Q come out, and let them in on the secrets of how your systems work to vet and monitor everyone who comes through your doors.

Provide easy to understand written and verbal descriptions of why the system is in place

Obviously, no one wants to scare kids, so try not to focus on only the “keep bad guys out” angle. For example, if you are an office building, describe how these systems protect the confidentiality of important work. Also give equal weight to the other benefits of your system, like generating name tags and providing insight on traffic patterns.

Show them the data

Use the data you’ve collected to provide info on peak ingress and egress times, volume of visitors, or other pertinent statistics and ask them to try to deduce what influences that data. For example, was there a holiday break? Parent teacher conferences? Bring your kid to work day? Numbers don’t have to be boring—show them how to sleuth out meaning from statistics.

Ask them for their ideas

Now that they know the how and why of your systems, invite kids to share their ideas for improvement or new inventions. Who knows—they might have your next big idea!

Why Switch to a Digital Visitor Management System

Still using paper sign in sheets? A digital VMS offers a variety of of benefits to your business, your guests, and your employees. Here are some reasons to consider a major upgrade.

Streamlined Visitor Process
Coordinating a meeting at a secure site can be a sensitive process. The wrong VMS system can leave a client stuck having to convince a doorman or security guard that he or she is even supposed to be there! A digital VMS system allows guests to be registered so that by the time they get to the site their identity and purpose are clear. A digital VMS system can even be used to print name tags—a professional touch that makes your organization look great and guests feel like they’re in good hands.

Superior Employee Experience
Mitigate the subjectivity inherent to gatekeeping at your secure site. Don’t leave your employee in the uncomfortable position of inconveniencing a legitimate, important visitor vs keeping the building safe. A digital system makes it easier for everyone in the building to communicate who should and should not be there. Plus, it tells everyone who works at your site that you value their security and the work they do with guests.

Provides Valuable Data
A digital VMS makes it easier to see patterns in visitation, employee attendance, and more. Depending on your particular data needs, a good digital visitor management system can provide valuable insights on the demographics of visitors, times they visit, and more.

Air India Jumps On The Biometric Time Clock Bandwagon

biometic time clocks now being used Air India’s senior officials have announced the roll out of biometric time clocks for attendance monitoring. According to the airline’s top officials, the implementation of the biometric time clock system will “ensure the identity of the employees and data on their attendance in a computerized format.”

This announcement comes on the heels of the discovery of significant misuse of the mandatory time punch cards that were instituted in 2007. Officials discovered that the system was being blatantly misused by employees who neglected to show up for work. As a result, Civil Aviation Minister Ashok Gajapathi Raju Pusapati has instructed the airline to do whatever it takes to ensure employees show up for work, and show up on time regularly. After researching the various methods of employee attendance management, Air India discovered biometric time clocks and settled on the new technology to solve their problem. The fingerprint technology will allow employers to eliminate the possibility of coworkers punching each other in and out without repercussion or consequence. Furthermore, Pusapati is hopeful that the new system will help keep him informed as to the profitability of the various routes of service the airline flies.

Air India has been instructed to implement a set of 20 rules that will streamline operation and ensure adequate use of the company’s manpower. One such guideline would require Air India to send extra staff to other Civil Aviation Ministry undertaking such as the Airports Authority of India. Air India and country officials are hopeful that this new system will ensure attendance and punctuality, increase productivity and spotlight ways to improve the finances of the major airline.
