Why Da Vinci

US companies alone are losing over $100 billion each year as a result of Buddy-Punching: when one employee swipes two badges; first his own badge - then a second employee's badge - while the second employee is not at work or late returning to work. OptiSec is addressing these needs with Da Vinci's totally integrated solution. Alternative biometric solution deters clients from integrating biometrics because the solution requires companies to replace part or all of their present software with new Time & Attendance and/or Security software. The result is high integration costs, software incompatibility, and computer down-time. Da Vinci resolves all these issues by allowing seamless integration.

What company would not be interested in reducing operating costs, increase efficiency, improve access control security, and have an ROI in months not years? Today, the majority of US companies are still using conventional Time Clocks. OptiSec has been addressing the needs of the multi-billion dollar Time & Attendance (T&A) market with proven biometric hardware and Da Vinci's complete solution software. Da Vinci is the only biometric software package available today, which allows companies to integrate a complete biometric Time Management and Access Control systems without any down-time or the need for replacing presently operating Payroll, Time & Attendance, and Security software.

How do Employee and the Union Benefit?

Experts on compensation say that the illegal doctoring of hourly employees' time records (reducing a worker's actual work hours) is far more prevalent than most Americans believe. The practice, commonly called "time shaving", is easily done and hard to detect - a simple matter of computer keystrokes - and has spurred a growing number of lawsuits and settlements against a wide range of businesses including Family Dollar, Pep Boys, Bigfoot, DairyMart. Handy Andy, Clark, Circle K, Wal-Mart, Taco Bell, and Toys 'R' Us to name just a few. Da Vinci, as an honest-broker, protects the interest of both management and staff by eliminating any possibility of either 'time shaving' or 'buddy punching'. Da Vinci does not prevent HR from altering their own time records when an employee may have forgotten to clock IN or OUT. However, Da Vinci's own time records are unalterable proof of the actual time when an employee clocked IN and OUT. Da Vinci, as an 'honest broker' can play an important role in receiving the support of both unions and employees and maintaining excellent company relations with both unions and staff.

Security Benefits

Da Vinci provides corporate Security with real-time on-line digital data that allows for automatically regulating access privileges based on workers' schedules, shifts, departments, vacations and sick leave, and reduces human error and man hours by eliminating the need for Security manually record this information into the security system.

Management Benefits
  • Reducing labor cost by 2% to 5% by eliminating "buddy punching"
  • Reducing the cost of HR having to produce hard-copy T&A documentation for departmental certification.
  • Reduces Security costs by eliminating having to manually check and change employees access privileges
  • Eliminating the cost of having to produce immediate replacement of lost badges when they are lost or stolen.
  • Eliminating the heavy cost of unauthorized overtime by providing each department in real-time who is presently on a regular shift and who is presently on overtime.
  • Eliminating the cost of virtual workers - when an outside contractor has one or more of his workers clock IN and OUT for non-existent (virtual) or absent worker(s).
  • The ability of easy integration of Da Vinci into a present or future ERP program.
The true value of Da Vinci is in allowing companies to implement user-friendly biometrics into a Workforce Management / Access Control system while reducing labor costs, improving employee and union relations, and having Management and Security receive critical employee data in real time.
