Audi Coimbatore being a heavy workload showroom with several customers, the employees have to work inside the office as well as have to travel outside for new sales generation and have to meet customers at different locations in a day with pre planned schedules, so before Palgeo, validating their actual ON Duty CHECK IN ands CHECK OUT data, maintaining attendance of several employees at different locations and tracking their activities was the most challenging situation. Also, Audi’s office employees used a fingerprint biometric system, so their employees had to stand in long queues to mark their attendance, Secondly due to the rising pandemic situation, they wanted to upgrade to an attendance system that is touchless and covid compliant to avoid risks. For the field duty employees, there were no technical means to mark employees attendance and HR had to call individuals or message the reporting heads, who had to mark attendance manually, which was too time consuming and also not always full proof data.
