June 23rd, 2021 - Today, Hikvision launches its new cloud-based and fully integrated access and attendance solution for small- to medium-size businesses and enterprise users. Built with an intuitive user interface, the new cloud-based attendance system provides sophisticated, multi-site access control with time and attendance management that centralizes and simplifies human resources operations and enhances the employee experience.
Hikvision’s cloud-based access and attendance solution is an integrated HR management and access control system. It is fully scalable and flexible for a variety of access and attendance needs found in different types of businesses. It enables agile working on-site and remotely, with a mobile check-in capability, which saves time for employers and employees. Cloud-based time and attendance tracking is particularly ideal for businesses with field employees, allowing for more efficient remote workforce management.
The cloud-based hosting also allows administrators and HR managers to remotely assign access permissions to employees or groups of employees across multiple sites with Hikvision MinMoe terminals supporting safe access into work premises.
1) Streamlined HR administration
The solution features streamlined access control and time and attendance management. Notably, it allows employers to create flexible calendars and schedules, configure annual leaves and assign rotating shifts as needed. Attendance reports and other metrics reporting provide employers with increased visibility into the total workforce.
2) Increased convenience for employees
Employees can quickly and easily clock-in and clock-out at multiple site using the Hik-Connect mobile app. A GPS clocking function allows them to report attendance even in field locations. The solution also supports multiple access authentication methods including fingerprint, smartcard or facial recognition. Facial recognition provides contactless, highly accurate ID authentication and is available from all Hikvision MinMoe terminals.
3) The lowest cost of ownership
Hikvision’s attendance solution provides unrivaled value for SMBs based on a highly efficient cloud deployment model. With no need for local servers, infrastructure costs are low, and licenses are free for up to 10 employees initially. The solution can also be managed and supported remotely by trusted service providers using Hik-ProConnect, further increase operational efficiency.
4) Rapid, simple deployment and set-up in the cloud
Cloud-based hosting houses necessary business logic for access control and attendance management, making the solution extremely fast and easy to deploy, configure and use.
