What is Personnel Tracking System?
Personnel entry-exit tracking system, also known as personnel attendance system, is a system where employers track their employees’ entry and exit, calculate their leave and overtime, take payrolls and transfer the received payroll information to any accounting system if desired.
As a result of transferring the entry and exit times to the time&attendance software, daily, weekly and monthly follow-ups of the personnel can be done easily.
Personnel tracking systems are the main data source for personnel-related transactions such as annual leave usage, payroll transactions, payroll and salary calculations, time spent in the cafeteria, leave periods, advance payment, shift hours, as well as entry and exit tracking.
The interest and need for personnel tracking systems has increased considerably today, and its use has become inevitable in almost every sector and institution.

In time&attendance systems, personnel tracking device and software work in an integrated manner.
Employees are introduced to this system one by one, and all entries and exits are reported.
We can list personnel tracking system devices as;
-Face recognition device
After the pandemic, card readers are more preferred than before. Many companies that use fingerprint devices have replaced their devices with either fingerprint readers or face recognition readers.
Card readers are preferred in places where the circulation is high. Such as; factories, schools, hospitals, large/small-scale workplaces, etc.
Employees are registered in the system, cards are defined for each personnel, and data entry is made by scanning the cards at the entrance and exit.
It can be used with gate entrance, turnstile, and barriers depending on preference. It can also be used as a promotional card by printing one-sided or double-sided on the cards.
Fingerprint readers do not take a picture of the fingerprint, they convert the fingerprint into a code called “binary” and store it as it is. In the use of a fingerprint reader, hands of the personnel should be clean and there should be no deformation such as burns or wounds.
Fingerprint readers and face recognition devices are used more in areas where security and privacy are kept at a high level.
Binary code is also used in face recognition devices. The face recognition system is activated by scanning the faces of the personnel registered in the time&attendance system.
Face recognition devices are safely preferred in workplaces or institutions in some sectors where fingerprint readers cannot be used due to finger deformation.
It can be used integrated with all access control systems such as face recognition devices, door opening, turnstile, member entrance, etc.
As with card readers, there is no case of forgetting the card or giving it to someone else.
