Focus is a time and attendance solution without equal, powerful enough to be deployed as a full workforce management tool.
Workforce Management begins with time and attendance; where, when, how many? Where do we need extra cover? Where are we wasting hours with over staffing? Focus allows you to track attendance in real time, to the second, allowing you to see problems before they occur, and react to changes and opportunities with confidence and speed.
Use Focus Attendance Board to track real time attendance across all your sites at all times. With multiple configurations, you can have a screen on the factory floor detailing current and upcoming shifts in those specific areas, a screen in reception areas to show at a glance who is in, and a screen in Head Office showing the picture of the entire company - all in real time.

With our range of biometric time and attendance terminals you know that your employees are where they should be. No more “clock me out” buddy-punching, no more forgotten cards or fobs. Quick, accurate and secure fingerprint, hand scan, or face recognition terminals.
Biometric terminals can be used for time and attendance as well as Access Control. And with Focus you get a system that can operate a wide range of terminal types together. You may wish to have a proximity reader in the office, a hand scanner in the warehouse and a facial recognition system granting access to secure areas - all will work in harmony and, if you wish, all employees could use any terminal.

With Focus, each employee’s time in and out is treated in the same way. By tracking employee’s attendance you are empowering them to take ownership of their own time, in a positive, transparent way.
Focus offers a suite of powerful reporting tools and alert triggers that can help you manage absence on an individual, supervisor, site or company wide level. Focus allows you to celebrate good attendance and challenge poor attendance with fairness. (more about absence and attendance)
