Traditional Attendance Systems vs. rootsDTA

Do any of the issues below sound familiar to you? Here's some of the issues & how we can help you overcome them:

Difficulty Managing Employees!

Especially attendance from branches
& remote departments

How Can RootsDTA help:

With RootsDTA you can manage employees in a centralized or decentralized fashion based on the operational need. Furthermore with
RootsDTA you can define all types of employees whether full/part-time, 3rd parties, contractors ..etc

Frequent maintenance!

Recurring & bothering
maintenance problems and
unnecessary costs

How Can RootsDTA help:

No maintenance is required*. We will be responsible of any updates or software maintenance required
& will perform those tasks in a planned manner ensuring NO interruptions occur. 

No remote attendance!

Inability to prove the attendance
of remote workers and field staff

How Can RootsDTA help:

Any Remote location approved for work by the employer (ie: work from home or remote site) can have its own clock in that is linked to a shift or a workplan

Inability to detect fraud!

Difficulty in detecting fraud cases
on traditional devices

How Can RootsDTA help:

There is a variaty of easy to use options & features that can be activated to overcome this – for example a clock in point (ie: QR code) can be linked to GEO information, Network SSID ..etc


Biometric attendances devices take more time to mark the attendance & causes a long queue of workers in the morning and in the evening.

How Can RootsDTA help:

Biometric clock in/out in rootsDTA happens typically through the mobile device itself so clocking in/out is not dependent on one
fixed machine

Environmental Challenges

Under extreme cold or extreme
heat, the error rate is also very high. Thus this pose a challenge for using biometric attendance system.

How Can RootsDTA help:

Such scenarios are not applicable
to rootsDTA!

Special Needs & Inclusion

Many members of the workforce
may be challenged with special
requirements to cater for their
special needs resulting sometimes
in challenges related to inclusion

How Can RootsDTA help:

At Roots we take this issue at heart as one of our core values & CSRs. We provide a variety of options as rootsDTA has a special program depending on the need & could reasonably help overcome this at no additional cost to our clients

Extreme Work Conditions

Many members of the workforce
may be challenged with tough
work conditions in fields like mining,
construction, oil & gas ..etc.

How Can RootsDTA help:

Special set ups can be performed to auto clock in/out such employees without the need to navigate the mobile App

Rate of Error

Biometric attendance
machines typically have two types of common errors; False Acceptance Rate (FAR) & False Rejection Rate (FRR). FAR is happens when the device accepts an unauthorized person, and FRR comes into
the picture when authorized person is rejected. The error rate is 1% that means an organization with 20,000 employee, will get an error attendance of approx. 200 employees.

How Can RootsDTA help:

Biometric clock in/out in rootsDTA happens typically through the mobile device itself so clocking in/out is not dependent on one
fixed machineWith rootsDTA there is no FARs & FRRs because biometrics are captured through our mobile application not a static time device.

Infection Carrier

Repetitive use of biometric
machine can be a source of disease spread & infections since more than one person
are using the same device or are present at the same time to clock in/out

How Can RootsDTA help:

At Roots we encourage customers to use all accessible tools to ensure social distancing & avoid any disease spread. Since your Mobile App is your biometric machine RootsDTA user would not have this issue to worry about as long as they clock in/out from within the geofencing boundaries

Biometric Attendance machine
Systems Outdated

Work culture has been changing fast, particularly in the aftermath of the pandemic. Hybrid work is
now here to stay. The evolved work culture and practices need
a dynamic system. However,
biometric machines cannot
evolve beyond a point. These machines are useless when it comes to the staff working from home or working in the field or
staff attending office for only a few days in a month. These machines have no provision for newly developed needs of a workplace like hot-desking & other such evolving needs. As such, these systems are now totally outdated & just cannot meet the needs of a fastevolving hybrid work culture.

How Can RootsDTA help:

with RootsDTA set up can be easily performed to accommodate this; for example a work location or project can have multiple methods of clocking in/out in RootsDTA

Limited Capability

Biometrics attendance
machines have very limited
capabilities because the
software installed in these
machines is not advanced
enough. It cannot match the advanced software/ platforms now available, which offer analytics, real-time reports, central visibility, leave management, in-out passes & random checks, etc. These machines just cannot offer these multiple capabilities which are basic to a modern Attendance Management System.

How Can RootsDTA help:

RootsDTA offer a full platform based on a cloud software that is frequently updated to meet modern HCM demands. It’s allows users to manage their profiles & preferences to stay up to date with any changes needed
