Softworks introduces contactless biometric fever recognition terminals

Softworks, a provider of Employee Time & Attendance and Scheduling Software has introduced a new Contactless Fever Recognition Terminal to their clocking range to keep employees and visitors safe during COVID-19. 

Commenting on the introduction of the new terminals Robert Doherty- Bigara, Head of Business Development, Softworks UK explained “Our Software already automates employee management tasks such as Time and Attendance and Rostering for Logistics and Distribution companies such as DSV, Estee Lauder, NWH Group, Royal Mail and Suttons and we provide a wide range of clocking options to suit individual sites requirements.”  

“Many of our customers were already using biometric technology for Access Control and to record Employee Time and Attendance.” continued Doherty-Bigara. “When COVID-19 hit we began looking at ways we could help them by providing an additional layer of health and safety protection to this process.” 

“With this in mind, we introduced new biometric facial and palm recognition clocks that are contactless and also include fever recognition technology.” 

“The terminals have a high definition camera for contactless facial and palm recognition, combined with an infrared sensor for real-time temperature detection. Where a normal body temperature is detected, the terminal can allow access based on facial recognition even while wearing a mask. Where an elevated temperature is detected, a real-time alert and reading can be displayed on screen. They can also be used for anonymous thermal scanning and temperature detection of visitors, customers and vendors, keeping your workplace and employees safe and protected.” added Doherty-Bigara. 

“It’s a stressful and challenging time for Logistics and Distribution companies and they’re working harder than ever. The new terminal means they can now provide an added layer of health and safety protection and ensure they’re doing all in their power to help manage the well-being of their workforce now and into the future.”
