The Sharp Welcome Kiosk is built on NEC’s world-leading
facial recognition technology. This technology is becoming much more widespread
in the world of business in the wake of COVID-19, where contactless access and
visitor management is commonplace. But what makes facial recognition a viable
solution for Kiwi businesses in 2022? We’ve compiled four reasons to consider
when deciding if facial recognition can be your business game-changer.
1.Facial recognition technology improves security and efficiency
Facial recognition technology can help organisations quickly
and accurately identify individuals. This can be helpful in a number of
situations, such as when organisations need to quickly verify the identities of
employees or visitors. Not only is this a much more secure option than name
tags or ID cards, it completely removes the need of having a staff member
manually checking visitors’ IDs.
2.Facial recognition improves staff and visitor
Facial recognition can be used for security purposes. With
facial recognition, new staff, guests or contractors can be registered – and
upon subsequent visits, immediately recognised and granted access in a variety
of ways. Facial recognition can be used to grant access to buildings,
notify businesses when certain guests arrive, clock staff members on and off
shift, and track visitors’ arrival and departure times.
3.Safety and facial recognition technology
Whilst there may be concerns around the security of facial
recognition technology, it is becoming widely adopted by organisations to
streamline access and authorisation. When used responsibly and safely, facial
recognition is considerably more secure than traditional authentication methods
such as PIN numbers and passwords which can easily be stolen.
NEC is a world leader in cyber security and facial
technology is subject to rigorous independent testing by the National Institute
of Standards and Technology (NIST) and NEC consistently rank number one for both
speed and accuracy in facial recognition. The
Sharp Welcome Kiosk ensures that personal information including images are
stored securely. In addition alternatives are provided for those that may wish
to opt out of the use of facial recognition.
Have you ever had to use your face to open a phone? Or get
your photo taken at an airport immigration counter? Then you have encountered
facial recognition technology. The truth is, facial recognition technology
provides a fast, effective, accurate and most importantly contactless solution
to post COVID-19 public safety concerns.
4.Facial recognition is the future of business
One of the most exciting potential uses for facial
recognition is in business. Imagine being able to instantly identify all of
your customers as they walk in the door. Or being able to track employee
productivity with real-time data. The possibilities are endless.
With this in mind, the Sharp Welcome Kiosk can act as a
virtual receptionist, a digital visitor log book, or an automated staff sign-in
tool and give businesses more time to spend generating revenue rather than
tracking and registering visitors.
