International Roofing Expo 2020: Celebrity Sightings & Winners Announced
Biometric Time Clock App Shows Celebrity Match Percentage
Shannon Corgan, Director of Marketing
We had a great time meeting new roofing contractors at the International Roofing Expo 2020 in Dallas, Texas. We loved talking with roofing contractors and discussing how they’re managing field data collection for their mobile workforce. Managing employee time tracking, field reporting, and asset tracking can be quite a challenge for roofing contractors with so many simultaneous projects with employees, tools, and equipment constantly moving between projects.
This year at the International Roofing Expo 2020, we shared a new WorkMax TIME feature, face recognition, to solve a very common in construction, buddy punching. We designed our face recognition to be easy-to-use for field employees and easily solved buddy punching. Buddy punching happens when co-workers clock in their buddy when they’re not at the job site or clocking them out when they’ve already left the job site.
At the International Roofing Expo 2020, we showed how easy it was to use face recognition on any iOS or Android mobile device with our Celebrity Photo Match Contest. We were on the hunt to find the top three roofing contractors at the International Roofing Expo 2020 with the closest facial match percentage to a celebrity photo. The booth visitors clocked in using WorkMax TIME and took a selfie. After they took their selfie, the face recognition compared the celebrity photo to the booth visitor’s selfie and provided them with a comparison match percentage. The match percentage is based on the visual geometry, including the relationship between the eyes, nose, brow, mouth, and other facial features to provide a match comparison percentage.
At the International Roofing Expo 2020, we also wanted to show contractors that face recognition with a match percentage is the #1 way to eliminate buddy punching. There is “fake news” out there that face capture is THE best way to eliminate buddy punching and it’s not true at all. Face capture only takes photos of employees on clock in or out. There is NO comparison analysis between the profile photo and clock in/out photo. Face capture gives you NO match percentage. Face capture provides NO mismatch alerts because there’s NO photo comparison happening. This is why WorkMax’s true facial recognition with a match percentage is the #1 way to prevent buddy punching. We made sure it was easy-to-use for field employees and that it doesn’t interfere with the clock in/out process for field employees.
