Biometric Technology Is Positively Changing The Work EnvironmentOffices used to be filled with closed doors and rows of cubicles. However the 21st century's definition of an office is a more open and collaborative environment. A lot of this is a result of the advancement in technology and in security.
What was once standard is flying out the window and being replaced with more cost effective and accurate solutions. One example is the eminent takeover of personal devices, which have made "bring your own tech" (BYOT) a common office practice. Because of this, security and employee work shift tracking software has become more popular.
Obviously offices are now filled with WiFi and PBX hosted phone systems too. Computers are smaller and files are shared online. Things have generally shrunk and have become less paper-oriented. It saves storage space for more practical items.
Biometric time clocks are another big switch. Since more time is being spent outside of the traditional office space, complex systems are now in place to record breaks, meetings, and absences. When people are coming and going more often access security has to advance as well, hence the implementation of fingerprint door lock technology.
Obviously this is just the start but it is a big step forward. Considering there is a whole century ahead of us and technology advances exponentially faster, there is a lot to look forward to.
