Contactless T&A

Issue 4 2020 Access Control & Identity Management

Undoubtedly, the beginning of this decade itself marks a huge potential for contactless time and attendance and access control solutions. A touch-free interface promotes hygiene, while increasing the user’s convenience. Moreover, mobile-based applications have been known to reduce turnaround time significantly and proven to offer quick responses for time and attendance as well as access control.

Matrix COSEC APTA is a mobile-based employee portal, allowing COSEC users to monitor and manage all their time and attendance, total working hours and leave options. Employees and managers can easily access their time and attendance information and perform related tasks remotely, reducing the amount of time they spend on such issues. Additionally, COSEC APTA allows managers to provide controlled access to certain members, based on shifts and specific departments.

Two of the most prevalent benefits of the COSEC APTA portal are:

Bluetooth: Being one of the most common elements of smartphones these days, Bluetooth-based technologies have picked up pace remarkably. It is quick, convenient and facilitates communication between devices.

QR code: Through QR codes, device installation costs can be cut. All that is required is a scan of the QR code from an authorised mobile phone. It is a simple process without compromising the security of an organisation or individual.
