TBS introduces new biometric workforce management solution

Pfaffikon, Switzerland

TBS 2D Time incorporates various technical features that make the device adaptable to many applications and different settings.

TBS is introducing the 2D Time, a fingerprint recognition device with a large screen for workforce management and time and attendance applications.

The adoption of biometrics in workforce and identity management and in time and attendance has been witnessing a steep growth in the past years. It is part of a trend towards organisational restructuring, which highlights security and accuracy as well as other advantages such as productivity, transparency and accountability.

End-to-end digital solutions, including biometric, intuitive software and flexible integration, are essential for organisations to migrate from paper-based limitations and unreliable identification processes in order to improve efficiency, flexibility and quality as well as to remove redundancies.

With that in mind, Touchless Biometric Systems (TBS) has carefully created a solution to address the versatile needs of attendance and workforce management. The TBS 2D Time fits in with the already traditional market desire of combining sleek design, comfortable interface and accuracy, at trait that TBS identifies with in the world of biometric solutions.

Versatility and interoperability

TBS 2D Time incorporates various technical features that make the device adaptable to many applications and different settings. The large screen (9’’) highlights the importance of a comfortable and spacious interface from the user’s perspective. This feature allows the presence of several custom touch-screen buttons that give a variety of attendance status, triggering events, surveys or other actions.

On the connectivity side, several options are possible with in-built capabilities to connect to a single or widely distributed network via LAN, WLAN and 4G. Via TBS Biomanager, the device offers several opportunities to connect to 3rd party software applications.

User authentication can also be explored thanks to its combination of biometric, PIN and RFID which, together with the TBS Biomanager software, can be further customised at an individual level. The software allows for very precise reporting, offering valuable data for a wide range of analytical tools.

Time & attendance and workforce management

The two most immediate use cases for this device are time and attendance and workforce management. User authentication can also be used to identify users with a specific set of certifications. Timestamp recording also allows for a transparent way to track extra-hours and give accurate data to payroll systems. A biometric credential can also be used as a form of esignature for person-based authorisation to access resources, like machinery in fabrication. The device enables intelligent functions for a smart building as it permits connectivity with other machines and systems. Interactivity with staff, customer loyalty and POS solutions can easily be put in place thanks to the vast customisation features of the screen. As a result, organisations become more flexible, more efficient and more responsive in managing their human resources.
