Over the years, marking attendance has come a long way - from the obsolete physical punching in and out, to a more efficient attendance management system of simply swiping a card or using Biometrics.
So what’s become of attendance marking and what does the future have in store for accurate tracking? In a word, ‘Geo Fencing’. Geofences are virtual perimeters created using the latitude, longitude and radius of a location which can be used for marking Attendance for employees.
The possibilities to harness this method for an organization to manage its employees are vast. greytHR’s innovative solution- Geo Mark, uses the GPS feature in a smartphone to accurately and effectively mark attendance.
Here are some of the scenarios where Geo Mark could help:
- A small company could use this to save hardware costs and a large one, for efficiency
- Medium and large-sized manufacturing companies with plants in remote locations
- Companies with staff deployed to different sites for different projects
