Geofencing with Digital HRMS: Employee Attendance Management Simplified with Real-Time Tracking

What is geofencing? Well geofencing is a term that refers to the creation of a geofence or virtual barrier around a specific location. Geofencing technology has found multiple applications across the domains of marketing, brand promotions, security and automobiles, to name a few.

Also, the geofencing technology can serve as a reliable backup in case there are some issues in the attendance tracking hardware and it fails to record the data.


How Automated Attendance Tracking with Geofencing Works

To begin with, the concept of using geofencing for automated attendance tracking is pretty simple. The admin has to define the perimeter of an area or location on the map. This will serve as the area to be considered for registering the attendance of the employee.

For example, if an employee is supposed to visit a client location, the admin needs to define the area on the map – it can be 100-200 meter radius around the client's office. Now, the attendance of the employee is marked automatically when he or she steps within predefined area around the client's office. All that the employee needs to do is provide permission to the digital HRMS mobile app to access the location details in real time.
