AboutTime Technologies unveils face recognition tool

AboutTime Technologies, a mobile resource management solutions firm, announces the addition of face recognition for WorkMax TIME.

WorkMax TIME's face recognition was developed to help businesses with mobile workforces gain the most accurate and automated way to help auto-verify the employee's identity without added hardware, expense, or manual verification. Many of the inferior methods such as fingerprint scans and face capture cause employee frustration, leaving a high margin for error and they don't efficiently solve the buddy-punching issue for businesses with a mobile workforce.

WorkMax TIME's face recognition takes standard employee face capture to an entirely new level. Many mobile time tracking systems are capable of simply taking a picture or "selfie" of the employee as they clock IN/OUT by attaching the photo to the employee's time record. Payroll admins/managers/humans are then required to manually inspect each individual employee time record in order to find discrepancies.

WorkMax TIME's face recognition is far superior to face capture because it auto-searches the photos associated with time records and utilizes intelligent computing and facial-spatial measuring algorithms to compare employees' IN/OUT photos to their profile photo. When a mismatch is identified, WorkMax TIME's face recognition flags the record providing a match percentage to payroll admins, supervisors, and managers. With WorkMax TIME's face recognition, customers decide the face recognition match percentage or threshold that works for them. They also have the flexibility to determine which time records are flagged for further review.

Instead of having admins/managers/humans spending countless hours manually comparing employee clock IN/OUT images, WorkMax's face recognition dramatically reduces the amount of time it takes to identify suspect time records. Many WorkMax customers have hundreds or even thousands of employee time records streaming into the system daily. With WorkMax face recognition, time records are auto-scanned and suspect records are flagged immediately. Mobile employees simply clock IN/OUT on their Android or iOS mobile app. WorkMax face recognition doesn't prevent mobile employees from clocking IN/OUT and doesn't require any added hardware plugins or expense. This is a substantial benefit; it avoids hardware misreads and field issues which hinders the ability for employees' to quickly and easily clock IN/OUT.

"When we launched WorkMax TIME, we offered mobile photo face capture tied to the time records like many time tracking solutions do, but we always planned to add automated face recognition to perform the bulk of the work and enable WorkMax customers to eliminate buddy-punching and time-theft. We wanted to free up the need for humans to manually inspect every employee time stamp. WorkMax face recognition helps reduce time theft and automates the process for our customers. This results in paying the right employees for their work accurately," said Ryan Remkes, CEO of AboutTime Technologies.
