Time & Attendance

Combining significant cost reductions with a slim design - helps expand the overall market for Time & Attendance

Value propositions

Professional fingerprint biometrics offer true benefits over card or badge systems in Time & Attendance. It proofs presence of the individual (rather than the badge) and employees cannot forget their fingerprints.

The NEXT sensor module with SPI interface has a small form factor and allows cost-efficient and elegant design of T&A terminals. The large area sensor is intuitive to operate by inexperienced users. Custom support for integrating the NEXT sensor with existing algorithms ensures operational stability.

An optional chip for embedded processing with a NEXT-certified partner algorithm is available. Processing in less than 1 second for more than 2,000 enrolled users provides high throughput. 

The cost of the NEXT module compares very favorably with alternative sensor systems.

Top 5 Keys to Mass Market Success

  1. Size of sensor active area (intuitive and tolerant touch sensor - 201 mm2)
  2. Quality of algorithm (accurate and fast authentication, remote or embedded)
  3. Good ergonomic design (allows consistent quality placement of finger) 
  4. Cost efficiency (affordable area sensor)
  5. Small overall dimensions (easily integrated into physical design)
