AXLR8 now have a fully developed interface using the leading Almas Industries systems and devices for biometric attendance and access control. Not only does it record attendance but also proves identity.
It allows you to use physical Almas Industries fingerprint and other biometric devices to check that the correct staff have arrived for their shifts on time and can record check in time, check out time, break time and other times such as tour locations and breaks. It also controls access into restricted areas.
Who does it help?
The systems are being deployed to check staff in and out and to record security and other tour paths in:
- building sites
- football stadia
- large secure residences and estates
- shopping arcades
and other large sites where staff attendance needs to be recorded. The physical Almas Industries hardware is installed at critical places on site This could be for, e.g. a fingerprint or facial recognition scan.

It is important to perform proof of identity for access control and T&A on site where your requirements include:
- Only qualified staff
- Only vetted staff
- Only the staff who have understood the brief or done the induction training for that site
- Only specific people may enter certain restricted rooms and areas
This is popular with staffing agencies and full time employed staff in:
- and many other areas.
How does this compare with the AXLR8 Proof of Location smartphone app?
Where you have staff attending sites just once or on an occasional basis – e.g. field marketing or once-off experiential or other services, naturally, you will still require the AXLR8 Proof of Location system using the staff’s BYOD smartphone and or web apps. This is based upon a selfie on site and the satellite geo data proving that:
- the specific employee you booked and trained for that job
- was actually there at or before the shift time and, if necessary
- standing in a prescribed uniform
- with (e.g.) their demonstration kit set up.
As they may be in any town, at another site on any day, you cannot install hardware for a fingerprint or RFID scan. Many of our clients have staff rotas at locations where they cannot or may not install or use T&M hardware for other reasons.
So the AXLR8 BYOD PoL solution for dynamic staffing locations is complementary to the Biometric T&M solution for permanent work places.
