Iris ID, the global leader in iris recognition technology, a Platinum Winner in the 2019 ‘ASTORS’ Homeland Security Awards Program and a Returning Competitor in the 2020 ‘ASTORS’ Program, is pleased to introduce IrisTime, a new biometric time and attendance platform providing a fully customizable and accurate solution to meet the leading workforce management needs of small businesses to enterprise organizations worldwide.

IrisTime, offers a fusion of iris and face recognition to increase accuracy and convenience by creating a new technique for advanced employee identity authentication.

IrisTime’s open Android-based platform ships with a standard app to accommodate hundreds of current time and attendance applications capable of meeting the needs of many organizations, while also enabling independent software vendors (ISVs) to create custom and flexible software solutions, to satisfy any clients specific organizational needs.

Also, the IrisTime platform is contactless, an essential consideration during the COVID-19 pandemic.

A recent study by a federal agency showed systems using only facial recognition could be up to 50% less accurate when people wore masks, however IrisTime from Iris ID is unaffected by employees wearing personal protective equipment such as gloves, masks and goggles.

“IrisTime uses fast auto-focus to quickly and conveniently authenticate employees’ identity at distances up to 24 inches,” explains Mohammed Murad, vice president, global sales and business development, Iris ID.

“Also, IrisTime’s accuracy is unsurpassed as it is the first time and attendance platform that combines identifying characteristics from both an employee’s iris and face.”

“That accuracy, along with seamless integration with payroll software, helps the platform eliminate potential errors while calculating hours worked, as well as benefits such as disability and accrued vacation time.”

See for yourself the exciting new Virtual Product Launch of IrisTime (iT100), to learn how IrisTime’s turnkey connectivity, ease-of-use, and open architecture overcomes industry challenges such as payroll fraud, buddy punching and increasingly complex compliance issues, for instance with protective scheduling laws, California Meal Break, and more.

The launch features Mr. Murad, as well as Mike Van Nuland, CEO of SimplyWorks, a leader in Online Workforce Management Solution; Josh Mazza, Product Strategy Manager at Paychex, an American company specializing in payroll, human resources, and benefits outsourcing; Danny Gough, Group General Manager for Biode, a pioneering biometric company in Australia; and Hasan Alturan, and Director of Security Systems at ETB Elektronik.

Using IrisTime, employee authentication takes less than a second, a vital consideration during busy shift changes.

While clocking in, the IrisTime screen displays an employee’s name, company I.D. number and photo, along with the time and date of the activity.

The iT100 device provides an easy-to-use solution with fast auto focus to conveniently authenticate identities at distances of up to 24 -30 inches. The authentication process takes one second to complete before resident Android-based applications can set employee schedules, process payroll and may display many other benefits such as disability and accrued vacation time.

The authentication process takes one second to complete before resident Android-based applications can set employee schedules, process payroll and may display many other benefits such as disability and accrued vacation time.

Biometric technology authenticates identity with no need for employees to present a card or remember a personal identification number to clock in or out.

However, IrisTime does integrate with card-based access control systems to create multi-factor authentication at mission-critical sites.

The authentication process takes one second to complete before resident Android-based applications can set employee schedules, process payroll and may display many other benefits such as disability and accrued vacation time.
The iT100 is Iris ID’s newest non-contact biometric offering that features both iris and facial recognition technology. Automatic recognition of iris and/or face is possible. A large capture volume allows for increased flexibility, speed and convenience. Enhanced security through Secure Boot and an open Android Platform provides an opportunity for third party application development.

Companies currently using Iris ID platforms for time and attendance or access control have no need to re-enroll employees in order to use IrisTime.

For any size company, IrisTime provides a high return on investment by eliminating costs associated with administering and managing punch, barcode, magnetic swipe or proximity cards and PINs.

The accuracy of the biometric technology ensures the identity of an employee, eliminating the ability of employees to clock in for each other in a costly payroll fraud known as buddy punching.

Fraud, along with inaccurate or outdated payroll technologies, may cost a business thousands of dollars annually.

Iris ID currently provides iris-based authentication systems for leading workforce management solution suppliers such as Paychex and SimplyWork, as well as for many global enterprise customers.

“For more than 20 years, Iris ID has been the leading innovator of flexible and reliable iris authentication solutions,” added Murad.

“Now, we are revolutionizing the time and attendance function with a biometric platform aimed at meeting many of the unprecedented challenges facing employers today.”

“IrisTime is the time clock for the modern workforce.”
