Buying a Biometric Machine?
While purchasing biometric attendance equipment, some general questions which arises can be:
- 1. What to be selected,
- 2. Why to be selected,
- 3. From where to be selected,
- 4. How to purchase,
And many other factors are considered by the procurement department of an organization. Selecting a correct biometric solution can end almost half of the problems and burdens at your workplace not only for admin department but for H.R department as well.
A standalone biometric machine will only solve less than half of your problem as many people are not aware about the softwares which are needed with it to solve the entire purpose.
Question straight away points over the need and requirement as there can be diversified benefits associated with a biometric machine and next big fact can be the PRICE, to get maximum with minimum amount. Let’s throw some light on these 2 points today:
Features: from a professional prospective, we should never aim over a set of features we want in our biometric system keeping in mind the future needs of the office. For an example, if we have made a list of 5 features; there are 100% chances that due to increase in manpower and business expansion in future more services will be required and solutions can be opted with the same biometric devices like:
- Visitor Management Software.
- Leave Management System.
- Overtime Management System.
- Payroll Management System.
- Time Office Software.
And many other. With this we should always keep future prospects in mind and should opt for feature loaded Attendance solutions.
Price: the rest percentage of selection depends upon price factor. As mentioned above, only an attendance machine won’t be able to solve all your problems and that can be the reason that stand alone machines may be cost effective but can bring troubles in future resulting in variations leading to salary mismanagement and improper attendance data.
Price should always be considered while considering complete solutions which may include
a. Associated Softwares.
b. After Maintenance Costs.
c. Installation costs.
d. After installation support.
For State of the art features with sound security, data protection features and other related service aspects, it is recommended to go for indigenous product solutions which will ensure timely delivery of services and support.
