Attendance is critical data that is required to pay your employees, but using unsafe options like Fingerprint identification to capture attendance is not recommended in view of the pandemic situation.

When using RFID cards, your employees are not coming in direct contact with fingerprint devices, thus making it a safer alternative to using fingerprints. RFID has issues like Buddy punching; but at the moment we are fighting with a bigger problem. To implement this, you will have to issue one RFID card to each employee and register those cards in your fingeprint devices. In future, when Covid 19 is under control, you can start accepting fingerprint again.
