Day care centers in the UK are already known for being early adopters of biometric technology used for physical access control keeping unwanted people away from customers’ children, according to an Industry Today article.

The system, developed by biometric solutions developer UK Time Solutions, helping nurseries achieve this new use of biometric technology is essentially a biometric time and attendance keeper, only with one new function in its software. Now in addition to properly tracking and managing payroll and time clock activity for employees, this system is also able to make sure a proper staffing schedule that utilizes the right skills at the right times is in use.
