Ramco solution uses biometrics, virus screening
19 March 2020 16:11 GMT

The Ramco Innovation Lab in Singapore has introduced an attendance tracking system that uses facial recognition and thermal imaging to track visitors with high temperatures and infections, according to a press release. The technology enables organizations to track staff or visitors with high temperatures that may indicate infection, and build procedures to avoid further contamination.

The RamcoGEEK for Contact Tracing can send notifications to all those employees, customers, vendors and others in the event any person develops COVID-19 symptoms. Reverse tracing can also be initiated based on data around positive COVID-19 cases from the external environment.

For example, in a positive case of COVID-19 at a restaurant, RamcoGEEK can alert employees who dined at the restaurant to be quarantined.

"We have a major global health pandemic that has affected many,"  Virender Aggarwal, CEO of Ramco Systems, said in the press release. "The spread of the disease has brought the focus back on hygiene and health of employees. We built this application to help better address a crisis through technology. Containment through an attendance and access system with zero contact and temperature measurement can be a key to avoiding easy spread of the virus that can take place with a biometric access system."  

"The launch of the advanced facial attendance system by Ramco Systems is timely, given global concerns over pandemic threats. We continue to see companies undertake a spectrum of innovation activities from Singapore, as they develop new products and solutions to address the needs and challenges of today," said Junie Fo, director of investment facilitation at the Economic Development Board, which is backing the new Innovation Lab in Singapore.

Complete with chatbots, voice and facial recognition-based workforce management, organizations can deploy Ramco's HR with global payroll on-cloud, on premise or as a managed service. The multi-tenant architecture with embedded intelligence and device agnostic features now serves more than 500 clients worldwide. 

RamcoGEEK for Attendance with Temperature Capturing can detect and match the faces of staff members and mark their attendance along with their temperature. Where facial-based attendance is a privacy concern, enterprises can replace it with voice to register access. The system is linked to IoT sensor-powered doors which can restrict access in cases where temperature is higher than normal and communicates the information to management in real-time.

The RamcoGEEK for Visitors system can send notifications when it encounters a person with a high temperature to managerment and track the movement of that person within that premise.
