The Ramco Innovation Lab Singapore Demos Touch-less Attendance System With Thermal Scan

SINGAPORE, Mar 19, 2020 - (ACN Newswire) - The Ramco Innovation Lab in Singapore today unveiled an advanced 'Touch-less' attendance system with embedded temperature scanning, to improve employee safety right from the entrance. The RamcoGEEK facial recognition system uses IoT based sensor doors, enabling organizations to move towards 'Touch-less' attendance and workplace access in the wake of COVID-19, and the focus back on 'Hygiene'. Ramco will offer the new system on a subsidized basis to Singapore enterprise (250+ employees), expressing gratitude to the city and its workforce where the Innovation Lab and Regional HQ are based.

The Ramco Innovation Lab introduced today's innovation based on Ramco's own facial-recognition attendance system, deployed globally across numerous organizations, combined with a thermal imaging device for temperature measurement and associated software. This enables organizations to track staff or visitors with high temperatures that may indicate infection, and build procedures to avoid further contamination caused by biometric scanners. Ramco Systems, headquartered in Chennai, India, is a global enterprise software specialist which has pioneered many HR-related innovations.

RamcoGEEK for Attendance with Temperature Capturing can detect and match the faces of staff members and mark their attendance along with temperature. Where facial-based attendance is a privacy concern, enterprises can replace it with voice to register access. The system is linked to IoT sensor-powered doors which can restrict access in cases where temperature is higher than normal and auto apply leave on behalf of employees. It communicates the information to HR and management in real-time and tracks the movements of a high-temperature staff in the workplace.

RamcoGEEK for Visitors system can send notifications when it encounters a person with a very high temperature to the facility manager/facility admin and track the movement of that person within that premise.

RamcoGEEK for Contact Tracing can send notifications to all those employees, customers, vendors and others interacted with in-person, in the event any person develops COVID-19 symptoms. Reverse Tracing can also be initiated based on data around positive COVID-19 cases from the external environment. For example, in a positive case of COVID-19 at a restaurant, RamcoGEEK can alert employees who dined at the restaurant to be quarantined based on bills raised.

"We have a major global health pandemic that has affected many. The spread of the disease has brought the focus back on Hygiene and Health of Employees. We built this application to help better address a crisis through technology. Robust containment through a robust attendance and access system with zero contact and temperature measurement can be a key to avoiding easy spread of the virus that can take place with a Biometric access system," said Mr. Virender Aggarwal, CEO of Ramco Systems.

"The launch of the advanced facial attendance system by Ramco Systems is timely, given global concerns over pandemic threats. We continue to see companies undertake a spectrum of innovation activities from Singapore, as they develop new products and solutions to address the needs and challenges of today," said Ms. Junie Fo, Director of Investment Facilitation at the Economic Development Board (EDB), which is backing the new Innovation Lab in Singapore.
