Stop Using an Outdated Attendance System Using RFID Technology
When looking for a new time clock method, avoid using an attendance system using RFID badges or cards. These methods end up costing your company more money over the long run and don’t give the same level of security as a fingerprint reader. An attendance system using RFID cards and badges only checks to see if a particular badge was used to clock in or out, there is a significant chance of abuse when a company installs an attendance system using RFID.
Card or Badge Theft
Cards or badges can be stolen and used to clock people in even if they aren’t at work when using an attendance system using RFID. If an employee needs to leave late, they can give their card to another coworker and have them clock them out so it appears they have clocked out on time. This can cause your company money and can create conflict with the employee aiding their friend in the abuse. An attendance system using RFID doesn’t identify the person, it only identifies the card or badge swiped through the reader. Even when a photo ID gets printed on the card an attendance system using RFID badge or card, unless somebody checks the photo ID it won’t deter the time theft.
Attendance System Using RFID Maintenance
RFID badges, cards and keys require regular care. The machine can break down and the RFID device used by the employee can get lost, stolen or degrade with time. A company must include the cost of replacing RFID equipment, which over time can cost the company unnecessary money.
