How technology is revolutionising HR operations in the workplace

Robots, AI and Biometric technology are all on the rise. So, what are you going to do to stay ahead of HR game in the future?

Biometric technology is the use of finger prints, eye or facial recognition as a form of personal identification/authentication. For example, here at Biopanel we use Biometric Technology using the finger print to increase reliability and ensure accurate information is fed from the Biopanel to the workforce management system.

The Benefits of Biometric Authentication consist of increased reliability due to the reduced risk of potential ‘Buddy Punching’ and decreases the possibility for loss of data unlike paper-based time cards and sheets that provide a constant risk of misplaced data/information. Maximisation of security levels give you the ability to feel confident in the system and gives extra-time to HR staff for the more empathetic tasks and enhancing organisation.


Optimising online payroll systems and linking them with time and attendance solutions for minimal disruption and maximising the efficiency of HR operations.

The benefit of having online time and attendance pieces and HR systems means they can extract live data and information almost instantly for your immediate use. In the past, Biometric implementation has seemed complex, however advances in technology have allowed us at Biopanel Systems to create a fully integrated system with a finger print scanner this does not have the be installed separately and the Biopanel can be fixed in place in one simple installation. Employees payroll numbers are installed in the system via CSV import. Simple.

68% believe the atomisation of HR systems will free up workers time to focus on more knowledge-intensive tasks and tasks that require a ‘human-touch. People fear the use of AI (Artificial Intelligence) and Biometric data could put HR employees out of their jobs. However, there is most definitely still a requirement for Human Resource staff as they provide the organisation, emotional support and industry-specific knowledge. It’s unlikely we will ever get comfortable talking to a robot/computer about personal life (at least not for a few years, we hope). 

Technology is now helping employee well-being.

The Biopanel is an effective employee engagement and communication system, increasing productivity and management of large workforces. For businesses in industries such as logistics and warehousing, managers aren’t always in direct contact with the hundreds of different employees throughout the day. The Biopanel utilises the requirement for employees to clock-in and out of work everyday as an opportunity to engage and communicate. This can be done via any given location and at any given time.
Asking questions and communicating with staff can highlight workplace issue and eliminate them quickly.
