THE PROBLEM AND ITS BACKGROUND
Nowadays, modern companies in our country used proximity cards/access badges to maintain that only authorized employees enters the specific offices or floors of the building/company office. This helps in ensuring the security of every room and offices of the company.
But a gaping hole in this system is the ‘what ifs’ questions it needed answers for; what if the employee just went to work and do nothing?, what if I just let somebody badge in my card to report for work? The company’s productivity will then be lessened by such kind of action of staff going to work and just sit around in front of the computer?
Such issue made us come with the idea to make the company more productive by being able to monitor which staff worker is doing his/her job and which is not, and by getting the jobs done also calculates the salary the employee will earn work working his/her head out.
The proposed system will be an improvisation of the standard proximity card (passive card) that only allows access to certain doors on a certain office/building. The improvisation of such in the proposed system includes registering the proximity card the a certain employee and making it also a time card (for it tracks the time the employee went out of office and enters back in) and then computes the salary of the employees per cut-off based on the time he/she enter and leaves the building. Also, the access card will also serve as login to the computer the employee will use during the entire shift/office hours.
Background of the Study Based on past experiences with proximity cards, the researchers came up with this study as we wanted to improve how it is used make the ID and access cards more cost-efficient for the employees and the company alike. Most business process outsourcing (BPO) companies (Convergys and Teletech to name a few) use proximity cards for their employees to access doors and floors of the building. With
