Geofencing: An added benefit to Attendance Tracking by the Digital HRMS

Many companies offered work-from-home options for their staff while the world worked to find a solution to the ongoing Coronavirus problem. Despite their remote workforce, these firms should streamline and manage attendance properly. Manually tracking remote employee attendance is a tremendous burden, and even if your employees come to work every day, biometric attendance methods might be dangerous in today's atmosphere. These problems can be solved with an online attendance management system that tracks attendance without errors.

One of the many obstacles to managing a remote workforce is maintaining a consistent and efficient attendance system. Biometric and other means of attendance registration have been used to automate attendance management for personnel working from the office. However, managing the attendance of remote employees remains a challenge for many HR departments.

Geofencing technology is used in Digital HRMS to track remote employees' attendance. This technology can be used to track the attendance of employees who work from home as well as those who are performing office-related tasks outside of the company premises. It allows you to define a virtual barrier over a certain geographical area, triggering a response every time someone enters or exits the virtual fence.

What is Geofencing?

Geo-fencing (geofencing) is a software feature generally used in a mobile app, that defines geographic boundaries using the global positioning system (GPS) or radio frequency identification (RFID).

A geofence can activate mobile push notifications, trigger SMS messages or alerts, send targeted adverts on social media, track car fleets, block particular technologies, or offer location-based marketing data, depending on how it is designed.

What Digital HRMS has to offer?

Digital HRMS has a number of capabilities that help HR teams track and manage the attendance of remote employees in addition to geofencing for real-time location-based attendance monitoring. These characteristics are described in the next paragraphs.
