TAMS SHIFT MANAGEMENT AND PLANNING

As an independent shift management solution able to integrate with a broad array of enterprise applications, TAMS is used by companies from a wide range of industries including transportation, social services, and public safety. TAMS takes care of the routine shift planning activities, highlighting the areas requiring attention due to lack of resources, requests for shift changes, and peaking demands. Company policies are enforced through pre-configured workflows, ensuring the scalability of the process and, in turn, the organization.

25 Sep BECOME THE PASSWORD WITH BIOMETRIC TECHNOLOGIES

This is the age where we humans, through biometric technology, become the passwords and access to the things and places they want secured.

 

In an age where passwords, access codes, access cards have become inadequate and almost obsolete, security experts and manufacturers are finally offering some viable and cutting-edge alternative authentication methods that individuals and businesses can explore for effective and efficient security. This is the age where we humans, through biometric technology, become the passwords and access to the things and places they want secured.

Biometric access control enables and controls access at your organization or home based on human physical attributes, such as facial recognition, voice recognition, body heat, motion, fingerprints, hand geometry, iris, and retinal scans. It is a known fact that passwords can easily be compromised these days even with little effort and know-how. Biometric technology takes away that error and complexity inherent in the use of passwords to gain access to equipment or places. Note that the most secure places on earth are being secured with cutting-edge biometric technologies.

Outlined below are key benefits of biometric access control and how you can properly protect your facility for maximum security.

Biometric Access Control Benefits

Although biometric readers and more traditional access control equipment, such as keycards, have similar security purposes, physical attribute identification, such as fingerprints or facial recognition, makes false authentication more difficult. Biometrics can also add more convenience, as employees never have to worry about forgetting or losing keycards, keys, access codes or PINs.

With biometric readers, you can customize and control access to your building, restricted rooms and areas within it. If a breach occurs, you can quickly determine who was present and take required actions and needed measures. You can also employ the use of biometric time and attendance systems to keep track of your employees’ attendance and productivity levels at work.

Biometric access control is most common in high-security environments, organisations and controlled environments, such as government buildings, Data Centers, File Rooms, and IT Equipment Rooms.

Practice Appropriate Security Measures

Although biometric access control readers can add convenience and security, you must properly secure and install equipment. Keep the following tips in mind:

  1. Test your systems before rollout. Ensure biometric readers accurately detect the correct physical attributes for each employee. Before widespread adoption, have employees test that biometric devices are reading features correctly, and granting access as intended.
  2. Train employees on usage. Provide employees with guidelines and training resources to ensure they understand how the equipment works.
  3. Integrate as part of a comprehensive security plan. Biometrics should not serve as a standalone system. Integrate biometric readers with other security mechanisms (i.e. monitored alarms, motion sensors, and video surveillance, etc.) for maximum protection.
  4. Plan for a backup, should biometric readers fail, due to a power or Internet outage, or equipment malfunction. Additional security measures, such as passcodes or keycards, can provide employees with secondary access if needed.
  5. Work closely with a trusted vendor. Recommended biometric equipment varies depending on your business operations, location, environment, and necessary security levels. For questions on how you can ensure maximum security at your business with biometric access control, contact your vendor.

Some Biometric Systems to Consider.

Iris Scanning

This biometric technology is simpler than you might think, with an iris security system, you need a basic charge-coupled device (CCD) camera, which makes use of both visible and near-infrared light to capture a high-contrast picture of your eye.

This type of high-contrast digital picture taking makes it easy to isolate your pupil from your iris, and allows computer software to determine several unique measurements, including the location of the center of your pupil, the edge of your pupil, the edge of your iris, and the location of your eyelids and eyelashes. All of these measurements unique to you can then be stored and referenced in future iris scans.

Vein Scanning

Just as iris and fingerprints, veins are unique from individual to individual and tamper proof. In vein biometrics, the charge-coupled device (CCD) camera is also used, the CCD Camera takes a digital picture with the help of some near-infrared light. The hemoglobin in your red blood cells, which carry oxygen, absorb this light, returning an image that shows your veins as black in a digital picture. And just like in iris scanning, an algorithm identifies the unique patterns in your veins, stores it, and uses it for future comparisons.

Fingerprint Scanning

Where biometric technologies start to get advanced is what we have seen in smartphones these past few years. Many iPhone and Android phones ship with a built-in fingerprint scanner, allowing you to access all of your apps and even make payments with a simple scan of your finger. This technology has steadily evolved throughout the years, progressing from optical scanners to today’s capacitive scanners and the future’s ultrasonic scanners.

5 Ways Biometric Access Control Systems Will Increase Safety in your Organisation and home

  1. You are the access credential; such credentials cannot be duplicated.
  2. Access can be revoked with the click of a button.
  3. Surveillance video can be combined with door actions for better visibility.
  4. Know who accessed your doors when, and where they went next.
  5. Lock down your entire facility — instantly.

27 Jul KILLING THE NATION ONE DAY AT A TIME

killing-the-nation

It was a warm Sunday afternoon on 22nd January 2017. As I scrolled up and down on my phone to check trending gist and news updates, I stumbled upon an alarming headline from the twitter handle of Leadership newspaper: Bayelsa government declares “No work, No Pay” for civil servants. Apparently, employees’ notorious absenteeism had crippled the operations of the state, one of the country’s oil producing areas.

I shook my head in frustration as I reflected on the future of our country. This monster has been ravaging the Nigerian workplace for ages and employers- in both public and private sectors- seem helpless to curb it. It is quite shocking that in this 21st century where artificial intelligence prepares meals, check guests in at a hotel, drive a car or control traffic across the globe, our workplace is grappling with controlling employees who are draining the public coffers.

Research has shown that agencies and MDAs loose a whopping 25% on employee absenteeism. Recurrent expenditure- mostly on salaries and wages- takes a chunk of the yearly budget due to a bulging civil service, thus leaving little or no fund for health facilities, fire service, schools, roads, drainages and other infrastructure.

Of critical importance to any responsible government- federal, state and local- especially during this period when every penny counts, is the search for solutions or strategies to curb absenteeism. In reality, absenteeism goes beyond absence from work. It  includes late arrival, leaving early, extended breaks, attending to private business, feigned illness, to mention a few. Just like the ghost worker syndrome is a monster that must be dealt with, our civil service today had degenerated due to lack of attention to and proper monitoring by immediate supervisors. It is a fact that employees miss a certain number of workdays each year, hence provision is made for casual leave. However, excessive absences lead to decreased productivity.

The search for a lasting solution is no longer a mystery. The government of Bayelsa state and other organizations have a variety of options to tackle this menace, one of which is TAMS, an award-winning easy-to-use biometric attendance and human resource management system that is helping over 1,000 companies saving 30%-40% on their annual payroll cost.
