Hi to everyone
In our manufacturing company people hands were always dirt with chemicals and others so they cant make attendance using bio metric device. But its very essential for our company specially for incoming time and outgoing time. employee strength is 900. Need help and suggestion.

I advise; a person should be appointed for that matter, who should take care of an attendance. Or a supervisor can maintain a excel sheet or company can give an access to website to the employee(if all of them are computer literate).
It may be a very simple solution of providing washing facilities to the workers to clean their hands before leaving. That will allow them to use the bio metric and more important will improve their health through better hygiene. I think that is a requirement of factories act also in many states. For coming in, it should not be a problem really since their hands would be clean.
Otherwise you need to have manual attendance taken by security or HR
THe final solution would depend on a lot of factors that you would know but we on the forum are not aware, not being acquinted with your factory

The solution provided by learned member Saswata is good.
Both personal hygiene/health and proper record of attendance can be achieved by this simple compliance with Factories Act.
Reply of one learned member of providing excel sheet on payment shows the commercial side and not the helpful side which is one of the main objectives of the forum
Guide,assist and learn is the basic credo of the forum.
Seeking business at every opportunity is not the idea of this forum.

Dear Syed,
You can convert your Employee I-Cards to RFID cards. These work similar to bio-metric machines the only difference that instead of a finger impression I- card needs to be scanned for attendance.
Disadvantage is that other person too can punch attendance using card of other employee . Deploy a strict policy at starting to prevent this.
Rest, it is safe and used in most MNCs as access control also to restrict a person from certain areas in factory.

RFID is generally considered to be useful when you are in a sophisticated environment with very low possibility of proxy.
And with ID cards prominently displayed and being verified by people. Will that actually suite your case ? As the poster pointed it out, anyone can punch 2 or even 10 cards at the same time. Will simply having a policy make a difference ? Or will you be using security guards to monitor. Then basically the only difference is in preventing accidental errors that come with manual records.

With cleanliness bio metric reader is better solution. The readers also come with RFID option. In some installations when the reader cannot read fingerprint, the RFID can be used. In some installations the security in trained to manually enter employee Code using control pad.
The cost of a RFID card for 900 employees is to be taken into consideration before implementing.
Also rules need to set for corrective actions in situations like lost card, not carrying card to the duty.

All services or products have advantages and dis-advantages.
RFID needs not be used in sophisticated environment only . Most companies use it for all level of employees.
Biometric machines cannot be used when employee has dirty hands, or skin is tampered. or has some solutions applied to it. It will also not work when mehndi is applied
Of course no solution will be free , each carries cost to it. But RFID in this situation is best option. Security guard can anyways monitor both biometric or RFID.
