AXLR8 now have a fully developed Paxton interface using the Net2 architecture. It allows you to use physical Paxton scanning devices to check that staff have arrived for their shifts on time and can record check in time, check out time and other times such as tour locations and breaks. This is popular with agency staff and permanent staffing in:
and many other areas.
The systems are being deployed to check staff in and out and to record security and other tour paths in football stadia, building sites, shopping arcades, factories, warehouses, hospitals and other large organisations where staff attendance needs to be recorded. This involves physical Paxton hardware installed at critcal places on site This could be for, e.g. a fingerprint or RFID card scan.
How does this compare with the AXLR8 Proof of Location smart phone app?
Where you have staff attending sites just once or on an oocasional basis – e.g. field marketing or once-off experiential or other services, naturally, you will still require the AXLR8 Proof of Location system using the staff’s BYOD smartphone and or web apps. This is based upon a selfie on site and the satelite geo data proving that:
- the specific employee you booked and trained for that job
- was actually there at or before the shift time and, if necessary
- standing in a prescribed uniform
- with e.g. a demonstration kit set up.
As they may be in any town, at another site on any day, you cannot install hardware for a fingerprint or RFID scan. Many of our clients have staff rotas at locations where they cannot or may not install or use T&M hardware for other reasons.
So the AXLR8 BYOD PoL solution is complementary to the T&M solution for permanent work places.
