Will continue with security and activity tracking
Traditional timekeeping has changed drastically over the years, from the original Bundy clock to biometric sensors. With many businesses moving to remote workplaces, the concept of timekeeping has adapted. As a business owner, online timekeeping systems have seen a meteoric rise in popularity over the course of the year.
While many [devices] perform the basic necessity of a timekeeping system, which is to track working hours, they have evolved into activity tracking systems that employ artificial intelligence to filter the actual work being done. This is a precautionary measure required by companies in order to maintain the security of their own and their customer’s proprietary data and ensure that employees are doing what they are paid to do.
Going forward, I foresee that timekeeping systems will continue along the thread of increased security, incorporating technologies such as 2-factor authentication (especially with the advent of 5G networks) and activity tracking. Even if many companies return to traditional workplaces or even hybrid workplaces, many timekeeping systems will still be relevant and useful.
