Shifter – Smart time registration system

Shifter was looking for an IoT solution to record the presence and absence of (temporary) employees easily and accurately, while also providing them with direct insight into the hours.

The project

Shifter provides tools for staff planning and time registration. In organizations with many temporary employees, it is important to be able to accurately and simply record the hours worked. We developed an RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) reader terminal with GPRS. This terminal scans and records the RFID tags in real time, providing an accurate picture of the staff’s hours worked.

The problem

In organizations with many temporary employees, it is important to be able to accurately and simply record the hours worked. The systems previously tried by Shifter to record and process hours worked by employees were cumbersome and led to many errors.

The solution

Our IoT solution consists of an RFID reader terminal with GPRS. By scanning and registering RFID tags in real time, the system precisely tracks when each employee starts and ends their shift. All data is immediately accessible to the management team via an application. Time registration is now much simpler and (cost) efficient for Shifter. 

The key benefits

  • Real time registration of hours worked.  
  • Feedback through LEDs on reader-display. 
  • Instant insight into time registration via a user-friendly application.

Easy time registration for temporary employees 

Shifter deployed the first set of RFID terminals at festivals and recreation parks, which usually are organizations with many temporary employees. Thanks to our solution the time-registration of all these employees became much easier and accurate.
