Is it possible to get an employee clocking in system that also serves as an access control system for certain areas of my business premises?
The same badge your employees use to clock in at work can be programmed to govern access to certain areas of your premises. In this way you can control which employees may access sensitive areas like server rooms, executive offices, private parking garages, or areas where valuable items or strategic information are stored. Such dual-purpose systems employ badges that are electronically programmed and tied to a central system that alerts you when a breach occurs. Not all door entry system suppliers offer such a combination of capabilities so you need to specify upfront when asking suppliers for quotes that you are interested in both access control and clocking in software.
