Attendance monitoring is cost efficient, easier and accurate with IoT

  1. 1. Attendance monitoring is cost efficient, easier and accurate with IoT
  2. 2. Attendance monitoring is bureaucratic, inaccurate, time consuming and inflexible. Sigfox’s IoT network enables connected solutions that is changing the way organizations monitor attendance. Internet of Things (loT) enables automated solutions to deliver greater accuracy, ease overtime calculations, reduce costs, gain financial insight, increase staff safety and happiness. From corporate businesses to primary schools, attendance monitoring is an operational headache. Bureaucratic, inaccurate and inflexible, it is a major source of tension for organizations across the globe. It’s a problem that is only going to get worse. As remote working goes mainstream, organizations are going to have an even harder time keeping track of staff that work outside of traditional office hours and in multiple time zones. An easier, more connected, and more flexible solution is needed. Automation is key. Too many man-hours are wasted trying to coordinate individuals when an automated solution can do the job in seconds. Organizations are turning to the Internet of Things (loT) for help. And Sigfox partners have the answer. Thanks to Sigfox’s global network enabling long range, low energy and low cost communications, innovative companies have been able to develop IoT-powered attendance monitoring solutions that remove bureaucratic inefficiencies, reduce costs and revolutionize the way organizations track attendance.
  3. 3. Attendance monitoring is an operational headache In its current form, attendance monitoring isn’t working. Any organization trying to monitor attendance will know just how time-consuming the process can be and what a headache it creates for managers and HR reps. These challenges aren’t just isolated to one industry either. Schools, hospitals and offices all struggle to effectively monitor attendance in their own way. Schools Attendance in schools is traditionally taken by hand. This eats up classroom time and stops the teacher from doing their job. It’s also a binary system. Students are either present or absent at the time of recording. No information can be gained as to what time the student arrived at their desk, what time they left or where they are throughout the school day. Care providers Care costs are increasing, but so are the needs of patients. At the moment, care providers have no concrete way of justifying the time they spend with patients. The bill payer has to rely on their word. This is an ineffective and inefficient way to track and bill the care they give. Facility management Facility managers need to prove to clients that they are spending time at their facilities cleaning them and replenishing stock. How else can they prove their worth? At the moment, facility managers are struggling to do so, relying solely on their word Remote workers Remoteworkingisbecomingthenormtheworldover.Most of the current solutions are software-as-a-service (SaaS) based. This makes them both expensive and inflexible. What if the worker doesn’t have an internet connection? How are they meant to check in? This is just one of the stumbling blocks facing current remote worker attendance monitoring solutions.
  4. 4. Out-of-the-box sweep card reader with attendance monitoring The solution is an out-of-the-box card reader and attendance monitoring system.

  6. 6. The Sigfox network makes attendance monitoring efficient, effective and economical The IoT attendance monitoring solution relies on the Sigfox network to deliver all of its benefits. Thanks to a secure, global, and cost-effective network, organizations are able to use the attendance monitoring solution to streamline and modernise the way they manage attendances. Long battery life Sigfox provides a low power wide area network (LPWAN) which allows devices to send very small messages at regular intervals throughout the day. By only sending small messages at specific times, the device is able to extend battery life significantly compared to other solutions. This doesn’t mean the device isn’t ready when individuals are, however. The device is constantly in standby mode, ready to relay check-ins or receive alerts as necessary. Low cost communication Sigfox’s low power wide area network (LPWAN) enables low throughput, low cost and low energy communication with devices, which creates a cost-effective solution. Very little energy is required by the network to transmit and receive messages between devices, which means these savings can be passed onto organizations. Because the network is always active, devices come ready to work. This means setup costs have also been reduced substantially thanks to the LPWA network. Global reach Multi-national corporations now have remote workers stationed all over the globe. A smart attendance monitoring system is only useful if it works wherever individuals are based. That’s why Sigfox offers the perfect solution. The device works anywhere that is covered by Sigfox global network. Wherever companies or organizations are based, they can rely on the Sigfox global network to provide the connectivity devices need. Simple The network and the device have been designed with ease of use in mind. Because the network allows for low- power communication, it is possible to ship the attendance monitoring device operational in plug-and-play form. This means setup is incredibly straightforward and individuals can be up and running in minutes. The small messages sent regularly across the network mean that the device is also easy to use and operate. Users swipe to check-in and out and alerts are presented on the screen. The entire system is easy to operate. Discover Sigfox Ready devices and IoT end-to-end solutions enabled by Sigfox: partners.sigfox.com
