Biometric Hand Readers

In 1991, AIS introduced the first biometric hand reader device in Malta. Since then, biometric technology has grown with the introduction of other biometric technologies including face and fingerprint technologies. After all these years, the biometric reader remains a reliable, affordable and easy to use Time & Attendance solution.

What is a Biometric Hand Reader?

Hand readers are an advanced biometric technology that are being increasingly used in time and attendance systems. 

  • Ability to accurately and quickly identify individuals based on the unique features of their hand, 
  • Essential tool for organizations looking to streamline their time tracking and payroll processes. 
  • Uses hand geometry to take distinct measurements of employee’s hand (size and shape), including length and width of the hand.

Accurate Timekeeping

Eliminates the possibility of time fraud or other forms of time theft. The biometric technology used in our hand readers ensures that only authorized employees can access the system, and it is impossible to clock in or out for someone else.

Improved Efficiency

Automates the timekeeping process, freeing up HR personnel to focus on other areas of the business. Additionally, automatically calculates employee hours worked, reducing the time required to manually calculate payroll.

Reduced Payroll Errors

Provides accurate timekeeping and automated payroll calculations. This helps to ensure that employees are paid correctly and on time, improving overall employee satisfaction.

Increased Productivity

Employees are more likely to arrive on time and stay focused throughout their shift. This can help to boost productivity and ultimately lead to better business outcomes.

Simplified Compliance

Comes equipped with compliance features that help businesses comply with labor laws and regulations. This can help to avoid costly fines and other penalties associated with non-compliance.

Greater Security

Provides an added layer of security to the time and attendance management process. By using biometric technology, only authorised employees are able to access the system, reducing the risk of unauthorized access or data breaches.


Allows businesses to tailor the system to their unique needs. This includes the ability to set up different access levels for different employees, track overtime and other custom reporting features.


Offers a cost-effective solution that can save businesses money over the long-term. With reduced payroll errors and increased efficiency, the investment in hand readers can pay for itself in a relatively short amount of time.
