Did you know that restaurant scheduling software can employ the use of biometrics? Welcome to the future! The process of keeping up with people using unique characteristics has risen in popularity in recent years. We now have easier access to all sorts of biometric technology to help improve our lives. From our hospitals to our cell phones, to our workplaces – biometric tech is really catching on. Why is it becoming so popular? Part of the reason is that it’s so affordable to implement biometric technology, but the other reason is that it makes things a lot easier.
Restaurant scheduling software with biometrics – what can it do?
Even restaurant scheduling software, such as TimeForge, can benefit from the use of biometrics. For instance, a biometric time clock allows an employee to step up to it, and place a finger on the scanner. After scanning their fingerprint, the timeclock automatically clocks the employee in or out. The employee can get right to work! The biometric time clock will clock him or her in and send that information to your restaurant scheduling and/or time and attendance software.
Note: the clock does NOT send or store any actual fingerprint information. Because of that, you can be sure your team members’ personal info is safe.
Restaurants can also choose to require a passcode. The use of fingerprints and unique passcodes can eliminate buddy punching, which is what happens when one employee clocks in or out for another.
What types of biometrics are available for restaurant scheduling software?
There are many different options for incorporating biometric technology into the workplace. Two of those options are biometric clocks and fingerprint scanners.
First of all, a biometric time clock can be mounted on a wall, then connected to a computer through an Ethernet cable.
Second, a fingerprint scanner can be connected to a computer with a USB cable.
The great news? Both options are available with TimeForge! Attendance tracking can be incredibly accurate with the use of biometrics. Start using TimeForge’s biometrics to track your employee attendance through restaurant scheduling software today!
