As part of its modernization program, the Parañaque City Government under the administration of Mayor Florencio Bernabe, Jr. upgraded its biometric attendance registry system, replacing the old biometric machines with a new type that has advanced features.
Compared to the old set that uses the palm signature recognition system, the new time registry biometrics read finger impression, typical of a fingerprint.
Apart from being a more efficient recognition system, it is also user-friendly.
No PIN code and hard pressing are required; a soft touch of a finger (index or thumb) will be sufficient to make the system match the finger signature of the user with the same inputs that were gathered beforehand.
Actually, it only takes 1 sec. to log in/out. A total of forty (40) Model 628 Double Engine ZK Finger Print Stand Alone Time Recorders were purchased by the city government for the purpose.
15 units were installed at the city hall while the rest of the biometric machines were put in place in barangay halls and other local government facilities.
The upgrade was mulled and being jointly run by this LGU’s Human Resource Management Office headed by Mr. Dean Calleja and the Electronic Data Processing (EDP) Office under Mr. Philip Maniego.
“With the new attendance machines in place, long lines, long waits to time in and out as well as employee complaints are effectively eliminated and employees can immediately proceed to their work stations after logging in and start with the day’s work promptly and serve the public even before their official time schedule starts. Apart from cutting manpower downtime, it makes timekeeping and payroll preparation simpler, systematic and more accurate. It also provides an additional way to identify, discipline and fire habitual later-comers, absentees and ghost employees.”, Mayor Bernabe said.
