Zoho People is the complete online HR solution. It makes people management easier for businesses. The recent update to the software is the highly requested Facial Recognition.
What is a Facial Recognition System?
The feature is a part of the attendance management system. It is the easiest and safest way to mark attendance. When an employee uses the Zoho People mobile application, the feature captures an image of the employee’s face and validates their identity to record their check-in and check-out.
The objective of the feature is to prevent attendance fraud, identity theft, and other fraudulent activities. Moreover, it helps businesses ensure that employees are working from the right place, the site assigned to them. If you have employees who are working remotely, this feature tracks their location and where organization assets such as computers, phones, or other items are kept.
The feature does not require physical contact and is a much more hygienic way of checking in and out in the current times of the pandemic.
The Use of Facial Recognition Feature in Zoho People
Zoho People’s facial recognition feature provides two options for managing attendance without any stress. A qualified Zoho consulting partner can help you understand the functioning of both options.
The first option records a picture of the employees during check-in, check-out, and when they take a break. This picture is stored in the system. Administrators or reporting managers can access the same under the list view in the attendance management system to ensure the location and identity of employees. In this option, the facial recognition feature does not match the captured image with the employees’ profile photo. Employees also have access to their captured pictures.
The second option of the feature records an image of the employees at the time of check-in and check-out. It then verifies this image by matching it with the existing profile picture. The success of check-in and check-out will depend on the matching of these two pictures.
Zoho People integration allows you to use either or both of these options.
