New Solution-as-a-Service hfx Access Control available standalone or fully integrated with Flexitime Management, HR and Workforce Management
hfx, a long established provider of workforce time management solutions, is one of the first UK based companies to develop a cloud-based Access Control solution. hfx Access Control provides hardware, software and services wrapped up in one simple monthly payment in a Service-as-a-Solution package. The new solution provides a ‘light touch’ approach that requires very little infrastructure and significantly reduces the amount of cabling required. The door controlling devices offer the option of either biometric (fingerprint) or proximity readers.
hfx Access Control provides the best of both worlds, with details of who is able to pass through which door stored locally on the smart devices, so that should the network fail, the doors will still operate. A copy is backed up in the cloud, together with location details for each member of staff, so that when the site needs to muster staff either in an emergency or for a drill, there is an accurate roll call.
Nick Whiteley, MD of hfx commented; “This latest product from hfx further strengthens our family of workforce management solutions, enabling organisations of all sizes to manage staff time. It offers a highly resilient solution using the versatility and power of the cloud together with the practicality of data held locally on smart devices. This combination means that should one aspect of the access control system fail, the organisation is still able to operate safely and securely.”
hfx Access Control can be fully integrated with hfx Flexitime Management, which is available via the G-Cloud 8 and 9 digital marketplaces, or it can be installed as a standalone solution. hfx Access Control can also integrate with Vanquish T&A and Everyone Cloud as well as all major third party HR and personnel, payroll and time & attendance solutions.
Everyone Cloud is an integration portal where anyone, anywhere can use any device to clock in, which includes card, biometrics, phone, tablet, proximity cards/devices, apps etc. and it can be used for timesheet purposes and cloud/T&A.
