With concerned location IP address.
Many companies/Indian courts are recognized.
Hence, if company do not have infrastructure in location
Where biometrics/staff/office,mails are recognized as attendance & daily reports.
The question was how to validate attendance of field force. Attendance is not same as work report. Further, work reports would be made end of day, and not from the place of work. So in any case the IP address etc would have been meaningless
Most of the attendance system help in-house employees for marking the attendance. However, on-field sales employees travel to customer places most of their time. So the solution should be based on mobile because they can carry mobile phone everywhere.
So mobility helps employees to mark the attendance from mobile application from the customer location/field by using mobile GPS technology. Hence eliminating the location and time barrier. The attendance application captures the sales employees clock-in time and real-time location. This helps the manager/supervisor to monitor sales employees activities from the office location. This also eliminates time-theft(Big threat) and false claims by sales employees. The application functions as single source of truth.
