People mobility management

Access & Identity Management Handbook 2020 Access Control & Identity Management

Defining, controlling and monitoring entries and exits at each site, zone, floor, area and location is of utmost importance.

The productivity of any enterprise depends on its effectiveness in having the right people in the right place at the right time. Physical security over the past decade has become increasingly more difficult for organisations to implement effectively.

Access control has always played a vital role in any organisation, with the main objective being to protect physical, IP and human assets. Defining, controlling and monitoring entries and exits at each site, zone, floor, area and location is of utmost importance.

Matrix COSEC is an enterprise-grade people mobility management solution that is flexible and scalable. It includes the following:

Access control: Matrix COSEC presents an adaptive, modular, scalable and function-rich access control solution. It is designed to meet access control needs of any organisation irrespective of its size, locations, layouts and timings. In addition, a range of value-added features like anti-passback, 2-person rule, first-in user, blocked users, door auto re-lock, guard tour, mantrap and smartcard based identification ensures fool-proof security of physical assets and safety of manpower.

Time and attendance: The Matrix Time & Attendance system is automated attendance management software which records the attendance data of a user and generates various reports for further actions. It not only saves administrative costs, but also facilitates HR to centrally manage the attendance policies from multiple locations. An automatic calculation of overtime and leave balances enables managers to work efficiently. Its standalone or network-based operation is aimed at schools, hospitals, government institutes, banks, remote sites, etc. HR can easily utilise this employee attendance management software for employee reviews, appraisals or monthly salary calculations.

Visitor management: Matrix COSEC’s Visitor Management System is designed to address visitor management in a very professional and systematic method without compromising security, hospitality or productivity. The module automates the entire process of registering a visitor, printing a pass and capturing detailed information in a few seconds.

Cafeteria management: Matrix provides an automated canteen management system, from placing an order to delivery (including payments). Cafeteria Management allows an administrator to create up to 255 menu items for accommodating different types of food items offered in the cafeteria. This ultimately improves productivity and reduces wastage of food.

Contract workers management: The Matrix Contract Workers Management solution is designed for large and small organisations to meet their demand for skilled manpower supply, and helps in monitoring the contract workers. Meeting statutory requirements is an important aspect in managing contract workers. Contract Workers Management allows managers and contractors to improve labour productivity and enhance operational efficiency, bringing down overall cost.

Job processing and costing: Matrix COSEC Job and Project Costing Module (JPC) is designed to accommodate the whole lifecycle of a job. It manages all the phases involved in a particular job. The module accurately monitors man-hours dedicated to a particular project/phase in real time, generates reports and assigns multiple jobs to an individual.

Field visit management: Matrix COSEC Field Visit Management is a comprehensive Web-based field employee’s portal. It involves management of field employees’ activities and allows management of field tasks done by employees under various schedules. It provides live tracking of field employees via reports with real-time notifications on exceptions.

Employee self-service: Using the Matrix Employee Self Service, employees can view a variety of information including attendance summaries, events, leave balances, holiday and work schedules. Additionally, reporting officers can approve or reject leave applications, authorise attendance and plan work schedules of their subordinates.
