5 Best Attendance Systems with Face Recognition

5 Best Attendance Systems with Face Recognition

When you’re tracking time worked with a clock in and clock out system, there’s always a concern about maintaining accurate records, especially when it comes to buddy punching and other forms of time theft. That is, someone clocking in for another co-worker or someone clocking in for their shift even when they’re not at the right office or location.

Investing in an attendance system with face recognition is a great way to increase employee accountability, and make sure your employee attendance records are accurate. This is critical, as it’s these records that you will use to track attendance, issue disciplinary warnings, and submit payroll.

In this post, we take a look at how Buddy Punch works as an all-in-one attendance management system with facial recognition technology.

In the Buddy Punch app, you use the Apple device’s Face ID option to scan your face when you clock in and out. It’s that simple, and that effective at keeping accurate attendance records.

Plus, you can use Buddy Punch to handle paid time off (PTO) and your team’s payroll, cutting down the need for multiple tools for attendance and time management.

And in case Buddy Punch isn’t what you’re looking for, we also cover 4 other attendance systems that use face detection features.

1. Buddy Punch: Best Face Recognition Attendance System

Buddy Punch is an attendance system with built-in face recognition features that help you easily and accurately track your employee’s work hours. You don’t need to set up any clunky hardware, as it’s done from an app that works on iOS smartphones and tablets.

Plus, Manage PTO and Payroll with Buddy Punch

Along with attendance tracking, Buddy Punch also offers a full paid time off tracking system, and several ways for you to submit payroll.

Paid Time Off Tracking with Buddy Punch

You can set up PTO balances for everyone on your team, including customizing how PTO is accrued over time.

When it comes to taking a vacation, your employees just submit their time off requests in Buddy Punch.

Pending approvals with our PTO request system

PTO requests are sent to the appropriate manager. Or you can set it up so Buddy Punch will automatically approve the time off request. All requests are updated in real time, so you can quickly respond and always be referencing updated PTO balances.

You can then view a report of all paid and unpaid time off, which can also be exported to PDF, Excel, or CSV.

Payroll Processing with Buddy Punch

You can use Buddy Punch as your payroll provider.

How to Run Payroll with Buddy Punch

Buddy Punch will handle all required tax withholdings, and your employees can log into their accounts and set up direct deposit.

Because you’re handling payroll from your attendance tracker, you can easily edit your team’s payroll info as needed. For example, if an employee takes a PTO but forgets to record it, then you can jump into their time card, add the PTO day, then re-run payroll.

How to Edit Payroll

But if you already have a way of processing payroll, then you can integrate Buddy Punch with your payroll provider or export a report out of Buddy Punch and send that to your payroll provider.

Buddy Punch Customer Reviews from Capterra

Below is a small sampling of our reviews on Capterra:

“I love the facial recognition feature and other features that are offered to ensure that your staff is on the job site in order to sign in. I like how easy the PTO requesting is for the staff and for admin to approve. It’s a little bit of work trying to get all of the PTO hours in for all employees, especially if they work different hours and have different PTO hours, but the team at Buddy Punch are always available to help with questions. That is one of the things I think are most important- the great customer service. The accessibility to actual people who can help is valuable.”
