Startup Kairos’ new app TimeClock uses facial recognition technology to identify employees as they punch in for work. This enables businesses to effectively manage their workforce and virtually eliminates improper activity such as ‘buddy punching,’ –when coworkers punch in for each other when they’re not actually at work–which can reportedly cost companies up to 6% of their annual payroll.
