Over the years, marking attendance has come a long way - from the obsolete physical punching in and out to a more efficient attendance management system of merely swiping a card or using a fingerprint. What’s become of attendance marking, and what does the future have in store for accurate tracking? In a word, ‘geofencing.’ Geofences are virtual perimeters created using the latitude, longitude, and radius of a location. The possibilities to harness this method for an organization to manage its employees are vast. greytHR’s innovative solution, Geo Mark, uses the GPS from a smartphone to accurately and effectively mark attendance.
Here are some of the scenarios where Geo Mark could help:
For any company (mostly SMEs), every rupee counts. When it comes to attendance software, it’s an expense that must be incurred to improve accuracy. However, this is not the case anymore. With a simple (and free) mobile application, attendance can be logged with minimal employee intervention. There will be no additional hardware costs for a small company and one less component that could go wrong. For a larger company, all the employees can be accurately logged, irrespective of location.
Many manufacturing and similar companies with plants/ factories in multiple locations would generally have a tough time accurately managing employee whereabouts. They would have complicated systems in place with a constant threat of something going wrong with hardware or software. With Geo Mark, the employer can effortlessly get attendance data logged, and the employee has to merely sign in from the free app, anywhere within the geofence.
Be it a construction company, an architectural firm, or any such organization with staff working out of different locations for some time; geofencing is a boon. All the admin has to do is set a perimeter around the remote area an employee is working. Now, whenever an employee enters that location, he/ she can open the app and sign in. This is done through the dedicated ‘Office Locator’ app by greytHR.
Very often, attendance systems develop problems that are out of your control. A simple error can cost the company through downtime and loss of data. With an app-based GPS-enabled system, there are no external hardware components to depend on. That ensures that you get accurate and hassle-free attendance data, every time and at no extra cost.
To conclude, in a time when we’re relying more and more on technology in our day-to-day lives, choosing a tool that’s efficient, reliable, and affordable can make all the difference.
