My bosses at work are really going all out when it comes to trying to computerize our operations. This is an electrical contractor business I work for, so they employ a lot of individuals who are typically out in the field working at a particular job site. At the moment, the foreman on the job site basically takes attendance and lets the office know who worked at the jobsite and from when to when.
The bosses here in the office for whatever reason do not like this system and wish to make it a little more accurate and honest. I suppose since a lot of these union guys are very friendly with each other the foreman will cover for a person and that's not acceptable to the office.
Were experimenting with Tablet PCs and giving them to the foreman at each job site. It's being used for a number of different things but now they'd like to get a biometric scanner and have each employee on the jobsite clock in individually via thumb print or something along those lines.
I've never really set something up like that before, but I'm the closest thing to a tech guy we have in the office here so it becomes my task to accomplish. Which then in turn I come here and you brilliant people help me out (I love you all)
So yeah...how should I approach this? The tablet does not have any kind of biometric scanner built into it. I'll have to purchase one but don't really know how to go about shopping for them. Any help as always would be greatly appreciated.
