Royal Touch washes its hands of old school timesheets

Announcement posted by NoahFace 28 Apr 2020

Adopts touch free technology from Australian tech start-up NoahFace to keep employees safe and mitigate infection risk
28th April 2020 – SYDNEY:   Australian paper and hygiene system manufacturer Royal Touch, has replaced its high human-touch time-sheeting system with a totally hands free, facial recognition solution from NoahFace.  The shift will enable Royal Touch to help mitigate the risks for its workforce, who must record their attendance as they work on site, supplying products to hospitals, government and early learning centres Australia wide.

NoahFace is a time and attendance technology platform which enables organisations to accurately track and report employee attendance.  It authenticates and verifies staff using iPad-based facial recognition software, removes the need for human touch and reduces the infections risk.  NoahFace also helps organisations comply with the Fair Work Act Award changes which will came into force on 1st March 2020.

Royal Touch has deployed NoahFace at both its manufacturing plant and separate distribution centre supporting their 30+ staff.

Dominic Chetcuti, Director at Royal Touch said: “Improving the efficiency and accuracy of our time keeping records drove our decision to move to NoahFace, but the touch free interface has proven to be a fantastic attribute in the current environment.  The system has already shown its value and it’s been welcomed by our staff.”

Noah Face founder and CEO Geoff Cropley said that the company has seen an uptick in demand for Noah Face’s touch free technology in the face of COVID-19.

“As essential work places seek ways to reduce physical touch points for their employees but still continue to comply with regulatory requirements, older style technologies such a thumb readers and keypad entry systems are being replaced with our innovative and simple solutions that can support their business with minimum fuss,” said Cropley.

NoahFace has also announced the availability of a mobile time and attendance app for both Android and Apple phones, which will support customers with WFH employees and any business with a mobile workforce.

As well as being used for time and attendance purposes, Noah Face technology is used for touch free, frictionless access control in retail and manufacturing environments, for example by the Telstra retail stores in Dubbo, Parkes and Grafton to enable access to secure store rooms and by Canberra Airport access to management offices. Other Noahface customers include Rhino-Rack and Private Vaults Australia.
