Face recognition sounds like the technology of the future and it is natural to have inhibitions like – prohibiting costs, a long learning curve and so on. Fortunately, those are just myths. In this article, we address your biggest fear – change management.
Will moving to a new System require new training, complex hardware or large upfront investments? Absolutely not.
Some face recognition system work only with their own accompanying hardware which is not easy to get around. While it was the easiest way to launch Truein, we researched for years to bring you a solution that is totally hardware independent.
Why should you opt for a hardware-independent Attendance System?
There are no entry or exit barriers
The idea is to allow employees to come face-to-face with an app that recognizes them and marks attendance. Truein is that AI-powered employee attendance application which makes it possible. Question is – what do you install the app on? Any smart device that fits your budget. It can be an existing large screen phone or a tablet you already own.
In spite of being so versatile, our hardware-independent system is practically 100% accurate and works better than any complex system.
It works on user mobiles too
If you are not ready to invest in a tablet yet, you can ask employees to mark attendance from their very own phones. Worried they will mark attendance from home, without stepping into the premise? Geo-fence it – Define the geographic boundaries of attendance. Only when they are in that radius, they will be able to do it.
There are no operating system woes
We’ve ensured that our staff attendance system is truly universal. Pick any Android or iOS based mobile or tablet and you are good to go.
It lives on and off internet
Do you want your attendance data to get updated in real-time, showing managers instant reports? You would need Wi-fi or 4G data. If you are in a remote location where connectivity is an issue, Truein will still work just fine. It will operate in offline mode, allowing attendance or visitor management to take place without a glitch. When the internet connection gets restored, the data will get automatically synced.
It is portable
Unlike a hardware-based system which would require a technician to install and uninstall, we have no such hassle. Your office has moved to a new location? Simply take your tablet along and place it at the new entrance.
It is easy to maintain
If the hardware device you install gives you hiccups, you don’t have to fret. Like we mentioned, no technician required. You troubleshoot it like you would troubleshoot any Android or iOS device. And if you still need help, we are always a call away.
Take the first step. We do the rest
The biggest barrier to adopting new technology is ‘apprehension’. Deep down, all of us fear change and the ‘unknown’ complexities it might bring. That leads to procrastination – putting it off to another day.
HR departments put up with tons of manual work, annoying syncs and the woes of traditional attendance systems or visitor management systems because moving to a new solution seems like a mammoth task.
Sometimes it helps to talk to an expert to find out if those fears are grounded in reality or they are just myths.
We have installed Truein at organizations as small as twenty employees and as large as fifty thousand employees. The feedback is unanimous – it takes a day to get started and it is the most intuitive system.
The COVID Pandemic situation made us switch to new normal in many ways and one of them was switching from Biometric attendance system to touchless attendance system. We enquired with many vendors and suppliers for such products and finally we opted for Truein - Touchless Face based attendance system for our Shindewadi plant. The system support. software and product all are inline with our needs and expectations. Thank you Team Truein for the support and expecting similar experience in future

Why do we claim one day kick-off?
There are no complex pre-requisites. You start with what you have.
Step 1: Install Truein on any device
Step 2: You bulk upload employee data with a simple excel
Step 3: For attendance, users on-board themselves by clicking their pictures
You are good to go. In case you opt for face recognition visitor management system, you need only Step 1. Of course, our support is around to guide you too.

Face recognition technology was used to bar intruders in the Avenger Towers. Does it ring a bell? What was sci-fi yesterday, is a reality today. The most obvious application is security – the Forensics department identifying criminals, the Highway authorities identifying speeders, the Airport authorities recognizing fleeing convicts.
There are more fun applications too – Facebook allowing you to tag your pictures. Have businesses used these insights? Of course, yes. When you read these use-cases, you might get a ‘Aha’ moment
Business Applications of face recognition technology
Face recognition attendance
While biometric attendance has been around for a while, face recognition attendance is way ahead of the curve. Let’s look at the top three reasons why businesses have embraced it with both hands.
It leaves no margin for error
The swipe not working, or the thumb not being recognized – which one are you used to? When you use an attendance system that doesn’t work at all times, you are allowing manual systems to take over. The manual system has to be synced back for the final tally. There is a scope for proxy as well as human error.
Face recognition attendance is practically 100% accurate and reliable. It leaves no room for parallel systems. Leading face-recognition technologies benchmark the system with the eyes. An employee may grow old or fashionable - it doesn’t matter. No facial or hair change can hamper its ability to recognize.
It is non-intrusive
Most attendance systems require a user action like placing their thumb on the keypad for identifying its geometry. Many may or may not want to part with this personal data and may find it unsecure. Users have shown less concerns with leaving their picture behind as it is easily accessible on social media or other public domains any way.
It is contactless
The user just passes by the hardware and the system completes the scan. With COVID, this is a necessity. Even otherwise, it reduces attendance time to one second and leads to zero queuing up outside the gates. Can you imagine the happiness score when an everyday chore becomes this convenient?
We’ve seen this work like charm in even organizations with fifty thousand employees. And that is not the benchmark – it can work with an unlimited database.
Face recognition visitor management system
It is appalling to see large organizations leave important matters such as security to one man at the gate. While we don’t doubt his efficiency, it is definitely not fool proof. Here are top three reasons enterprises have moved to face recognition-based visitor management system.
It is as secure as it can get
With face recognition, anybody stepping in leaves a record in the system which can be back tracked or verified by anybody in the organization at a later date. Well, it is also real-time so large organizations can have multiple watchful eyes. Going to think of it, is there any other system that can leave breadcrumbs that lead back to the face of the visitor – the true identifier?
It leaves a good impression
Signing manual books or standing at the gate while the employee confirms appointment is definitely not pleasing. And imagine standing in a queue to make a pass! We’ve all been there and done that. We’ve cursed and we’ve left stamping our feet. Why would we want to leave visitors with such agony? A face-recognition based technology at the door speaks volumes about how progressive your organization is.
It is always-on
An enterprise never sleeps and is not on a holiday during weekends. You need systems to blacklist people, to send you notifications and to be vigilant. A face-recognition based system lets you manage visitors remotely and have an extra pair of eyes at the door. Again, there is no margin for error.
Face recognition technology is accessible
Back in the 60s when the technology was first identified, the computing power was too low to render quick results. In the 2002 Super Bowl, the experiment failed badly due to false criminal alarms. Today, we have left it all behind and have achieved exceptional accuracy and reliability. It is not a privilege of multi-national organizations alone. It is affordable and accessible to even startups. It does not require any complex hardware as well. An organization deciding to implement it can start as early as yesterday with practically no barriers. It truly is the only way forward. Businesses that don’t adopt it run security risks and productivity losses.
This technology is becoming widespread – out of the movies into our very own premises. Are you game?

The Corona outbreak has changed the entire world, creating the need for making the safety of your employees a priority. Safer workplace management and at the same time ensuring smooth operations is now a necessary action that has to be taken.
As the world recovers from the pandemic, here are 5 things you can do to ensure your employee’s well-being and smooth operations in your business:
Remote working is the future (at least for now!):
Despite all the endless statistics on how remote working has proven to be extremely productive, suddenly shifting paradigms could be tedious. Chalk out a plan for remote working that will be feasible for your business and your employees. Ensure everyone is equipped with enough resources to continue the work without hindrance. Try to plan activities to keep them inspired and involved even when working from home.
Clean, sanitised and touchless! (it’s a priority!):
Now that we are on the verge of resuming work, we have to be back with the utmost care. Regular sanitising and cleaning has to be done for safety. In this fight against COVID-19, the first step you should take is to make social distancing a regular affair. Start working in shifts! The most important step is to make your office premises touchless - as much as possible!
Install Truein to ensure a touchless experience for your employees and visitors. Truein not only replaces the very unhygienic fingerprint biometric system but it also helps in keeping a tab on multiple ins and outs of the employees. Its advance technology is befitting to every modern office space irrespective of a pandemic.
Be prepared (mask it up!):
Sanitisers and masks should be a must for everyone working. Be it the visitors or employees or admin staff, washing hands and constantly sanitising is a precaution that you should take. Rearrange your sitting arrangements to maintain social distancing (no more fights on the perfect chairs, PLEASE!). Measure body temperature daily could help in knowing the complete health status. Employees should put their masks on and remove it only when they’re eating. Canteens and pantry should be cleaned to avoid any kind of contamination.
Empathy wins the race (not sympathy!):
In this difficult time, understand your employees. Be considerate of the facts that some of them are away from home while some are struggling to the internet going. As an employer, you should be more promising to your employees and take steps that are good for both, the business and employees. Salary cuts, furloughs and layoffs could demoralise your employees, so make sure your decisions are empathetic.
