Face recognition software is invading our lives and it won’t be long before it infiltrates our personal lives too. Facial recognition programs are becoming more commonplace in the retail industry, for example. Stores are using them to verify customer identities and prevent fraudulent purchases. Hospitals are also turning to facial recognition software as a way of improving the speed and efficiency of patient check-in procedures. Facial recognition programs can do so much more than simply identify people. They can unlock personal security benefits and access specific information about an individual person or their organization as a whole. In this blog post, we’ll take a look at 5 different ways you can use facial recognition technology in your company and why you should start doing so today if you haven’t already…

 

Using Facial Recognition Software to Verify Employee IDs and Credentials

Facial recognition software can be used to verify the identity of employees. This can be particularly helpful in the HR and recruiting departments. If you want to verify the credentials of a candidate before bringing them onboard, facial recognition can be a credible and reliable way to do so. Employees also have the opportunity to use facial recognition software to log in to their work computers. This can allow them to access sensitive company information without risking the possibility of it being accessed by a third party.

 

Using Facial Recognition Software to Identify Subjects in Videos

Facial recognition software can be used to identify subjects in your video content. And with the right partner, you can combine this feature with artificial intelligence to create a video search engine. This means you can use the software to identify specific people in your videos and track their movements throughout the production process. This can help you troubleshoot problems and discover new creative angles to your videos. Another use for this technology is in customer service. This can allow call representatives to verify customers’ identities and quickly find out the details of the account. It can also provide data such as delivery times and other important information.

 

Using Facial Recognition Software for Company Events and Conferences

Facial recognition software can also be used for company events and conferences. This can be particularly helpful for large events or conferences where there are a lot of people present. You can use facial recognition software to monitor attendee entry and exit times, find out who’s attending and make sure no one walks in or out without being identified. You can also use facial recognition software to make it easier for guests to attend. You can scan and tag guests’ faces with their name and company details so they don’t need to register in person. This will help you manage attendance at your events and reduce manual labour.

 

Using Facial Recognition Software to Detect and Prevent Fraud

Facial recognition software can detect and prevent fraudulent behaviour. This can be particularly helpful when reviewing point of sale transactions. If a customer’s face isn’t recognized, the transaction can be flagged as suspicious. You can use facial recognition software to monitor credit card transactions, for example, and detect unusual activity. This can help you protect your business from fraudulent activity. If fraudulent activity is detected, you can use the information to prevent reoccurrence and take disciplinary action against the person if necessary.
