Ramco Systems, an enterprise software product company focused on providing ERP, HCM and aviation on cloud, tablets and smartphones has declared that its comprehensive HR and Talent Management solution, Ramco HCM on Cloud (Human Capital Management) will now be available with GPS (Global Positioning System) and NFC (Near Field Communication) Support. Bracing this novel feature, Ramco HCM will largesse its customers an option to record NFC based time and attendance to authenticate, trace, and interact with employees at various levels.
In a gradually changing business environment wherein a substantial quantity of employees are on the move addressing business needs in remote locations, the need to capture employee attendance and integrating it back to payroll has become a corporate dare. Correspondingly, businesses are unable to get complete visibility of workforce distribution to empower them to plan resource allocation efficiently.
Commonly used attendance mapping systems such as Biometric and Swipe cards are limited in scope, high on investment and do not scale to the needs of a geographically dispersed workforce. Ramco HCM with its GPS + NFC based attendance management system is intended for addressing this pain point of an organisation.
Virender Aggarwal, CEO, Ramco Systems, supplements that, “Ramco is driving a move towards enabling a ‘Digital Enterprise’ and with Internet of Things becoming mainstream, we are using the tectonic shift in technology to drive business benefits in a manner not thinkable earlier. With the emergence of a young breed of millennial workforce, HR Managers are forced to relook at their current systems. With the launch of GPS and NFC based attendance system, we are providing enterprises with a new technology to address the attendance, billing and payroll needs of a complex workforce.”
NFC is a set of radio frequency communication standards that allow enabled phones / devices to read contactless tagged cards in a range of 4-10 centimeters. The NFC feature provided also prevents proxies and augments the accuracy of attendance. For Attendance clocking, employees are issued a card that contains an NFC tag. Upon holding the card close to an NFC enabled device, such as a smart phone, employee is promptly recognised and authenticated. The smartphone from its barrio acts or for that matter becomes a cubicle.
