Idesco has supplied the Finnish Government with access control touch screen terminals incorporating Time and Attendance for the country's shared services centre
Shared Services Centre Takes Access Control Touch Screen Terminals


The Finnish Government Shared Services Centre for Finance and HR (Palkeet) recently introduced a new, integrated time & attendance system across their branch of offices. The Timecon 22 system, supplied by system provider Niscayah, utilizes Idesco’s Access Touch touch screen terminal for both time & attendance and access control.  Palkeet are also now using the wide range of other services provided by Niscayah, harvesting the inevitable benefits that accrue from using a single service provider. Idesco’s Access Touch screen terminal is the versatile tool which also enables easy adoption of new applications and services in the future.

 

In all, 21 Access Touch units connect to Niscayah’s Timecon 22 system across 7 offices. Palkeet have voiced their satisfaction with the innovative terminals. “The touch screen is very simple and user-friendly. A unified time & attendance system also helps establish coherent, common policies”, says Harri Pekkarinen, Development Manager in Palkeet.

The personnel have also welcomed the new convenient touch screen terminal.  “The feedback from the personnel is positive. Indeed, our employees have been particularly satisfied with the logical and simple display, which is very easy to read”, says Pekkarinen.

 

Idesco’s Access Touch product contains an integrated RFID reader module together with its computer processor.  The resulting versatile terminal provides numerous options for processing and transferring the identification data collected by the RFID reader.  For instance, Palkeet office personnel also use the touch screen terminal for recording their time & attendance data.  The employees also have remote access to the system through the Reg@Web browser, enabling them to submit time & attendance data via workstations at home.  Furthermore, the system can also be configured for a wireless connection.

 

In short, the system provides and combines easy and flexible methods for managing both access control privileges and flextime.  Palkeet personnel have access control rights to all their offices throughout office hours, but after office hours the access becomes restricted by office or assignment parameters.  Personal pin codes are used for accessing offices after office hours and, within certain limits, on weekends.

 

The integrated RFID reader and processor in the Access Touch ensure the widest flexibility with respect to future system expansions and deploying new applications.  Palkeet is currently unifying time and attendance control procedures with the aim toward minimizing any changes in the system. There are also plans to begin testing “bankable work time”, with a current task of exploring how to parse overtime and flextime with the time bank. Additionally, Palkeet is also developing the pilot version of a new reporting system for valuable information about alarms.
