Streamlining Workforce Management:
The Benefits of Biometric Time Tracking
Written by Daniel Hobbs, Digital Marketer & Imran Raza, CEO & Founder
The future has a face
The use of biometric time tracking devices has been on the rise in recent years, particularly in businesses with large numbers of employees working remotely or off-site from the office. Biometric devices, such as fingerprint scanners and facial recognition systems, provide a secure and accurate way to track employee attendance and time worked. In this blog post, we will explore the benefits of biometric time tracking and how businesses can take advantage of this technology to improve their workforce management processes.
Remove the time slippage
One of the biggest challenges for businesses is ensuring accurate and reliable time tracking. Traditional time tracking methods, such as manual timecards, punch clocks and apps, can be prone to errors and time slippage. With biometric time tracking, employees are required to physically be present at the time of clocking in and out, eliminating the possibility of buddy punching or manual errors.
Biometric time tracking also provides a higher level of security and accountability. Biometric data, such as fingerprints and facial recognition, is unique to each individual and cannot be easily replicated or shared. This provides a secure way to track employee attendance, whilst increasing accuracy of the timesheet records.

Track specific jobs
Another benefit of biometric time tracking for remote and off-site workers is the ability to track time worked on specific jobs. Many biometric time tracking systems can be integrated with workforce management software, such as AgriSmart, to provide seamless and accurate time capture for businesses. This allows businesses to track time worked on specific projects, jobs or tasks, making it easier to manage job costing.
AgriSmart, for example, has a biometric option that fully integrates with AgriSmart workforce management software. It provides a seamless and accurate time capture method for businesses in regard to recording employee time on specific jobs. With AgriSmart, businesses can easily track employee attendance, hours worked, and time spent on specific jobs, providing valuable insights into workforce productivity and performance.
The user-friendly option
Biometric time tracking also provides a convenient and user-friendly experience for employees. By simply locating a biometric device, say out at the cow shed or the packhouse employees simply scan in at their location of work by looking into the device or scanning their finger and they are good to go. This is particularly beneficial for remote and off-site workers, who may not have easy access to traditional time tracking methods.
Let’s face it , not many employees are enthused about keeping a record of hours worked, Biometric time tracking devices, on the other hand, are easy and pain free for employees to use. Additionally, businesses can also save money on payroll and administrative costs by reducing the need for manual data entry and reducing errors.
Biometric time tracking is a valuable tool for any business, particularly for those in the agriculture, horticulture, and viticulture industries. It provides a secure and accurate way to track employee attendance and time worked, while also providing valuable insights into workforce productivity and performance. Combined with AgriSmart’s workforce and job management software your business can accurately track employees time on specific jobs and automatically have that data pull through for reporting and pay run processing. Streamlining the entire process whilst providing more information in an easily digestible format to further improve your businesses operational processes.
