French biometric access and security firm Bodet have launched a new fingerprint-enabled terminal which can be used by staff for multiple functions authenticated by biometrics.Unlike a typical biometric access control device, the Kelio Visio X7 features a menu which enables staff to conduct tasks such as requesting holidays, or communicating with different departments.The Kelio Visio X7 has a range of applications for HR departments including managing staff attendance, advising remaining holiday time, and creating meaningful real-time management and payroll reports. It can also be used for additional personnel functions that will assist staff in their normal daily activities, such as a staff directory, a database of phone numbers, accessing their own personnel reports and even booking meals in advance from staff canteens.The clocking terminal and information source impressed the Red Dot Award jury who commented “We were impressed by the Kelio Visio X7 time & attendance management system's feature-rich functionality and ease-of-use.””We're thrilled with this award” said Richard Manby, managing director of Bodet Ltd. “It recognises our product's outstanding design and underlines how important design and functionality are to our organisation. The Kelio Visio X7 provides businesses with a very user-friendly and high-performance terminal which we expect will revolutionise time & attendance management.”
