Biometric Technology Can Lower Costs For A Business
If you have been following our series on how biometric technology can help business owners, undoubtedly you are starting to understand its inherent value that it beings to workforce management and retail point of sale environments. Adopting biometrics can pay both tangible and intangible dividends for those who invest in it and we have demonstrated several examples of how biometrics can benefit business owners from several different angles.
We briefly discussed that when you compare biometric technology to other point of service and workforce management technologies, it may not initially be the least expensive option, but has proved time and time again to provide higher return on investment, increased employee productivity and enhanced customer loyalty.
When a business owner elects to use biometric technology for time and attendance, they essentially draw a line in the sand that demonstrates their commitment to stop buddy punching, lower payroll inflation and boost employee productivity by eliminating unnecessary time spent clocking in/out and reconciling paper timesheets. Biometric solutions not only eradicate the costs associated with buddy-punching but also increase employee accountability with the provision of a concrete biometric audit trail, resulting in a more productive and efficient work staff. Revolutionary biometric solutions have already drastically reduced administrative time and overall costs associated with traditional time-clock methods for companies using solutions from leading work-force management software providers.
As we discussed in an earlier post, if a business owner establishes a biometric identification system as part of their return policy, they are also helping to cut waste and fraud from employees and customers who take advantage of otherwise antiquated policies and technologies that can be exploited. Biometrics is a key strategy to eliminate the costs associated with return fraud.
