Hikvision announced the launch of its new cloud-based and fully integrated access and attendance solution for SMB and enterprise users. Built with an intuitive user interface, the new solution provides sophisticated, multi-site access control and time and attendance management that centralize and simplify HR operations, and enhance the employee experience.
Hikvision’s cloud-based access and attendance solution is an integrated HR management and access control system. It is fully scalable and flexible for a variety of access and attendance needs found in different types of businesses. It enables agile working both on-site and remotely, with mobile check-in facility – this is a great time saver for employers and employees alike. This is particularly ideal for businesses with field employees, promoting easier and more efficient remote workforce management.
The cloud-based system also allows administrators and HR managers to remotely assign access permissions to employees or groups of employees, across multiple sites with Hikvision MinMoe terminals supporting safe access into work premises.
