Fingertec Drives Arabia Taxi Group to Better, Centralized Time Attendance Solution
By Ms. Tamy Phoon , International Sales & Marketing Manager, FingerTec Worldwide
Arabia Taxi Group (ATG), a dynamic transportations entity jointly owned by Sheikh Sohail Bin Khalifa Bin Saeed Al Maktoum and Sheikh Majid Bin Hamad Al Qasimi, has long been a leading taxi company in United Arab Emirates. Recently, ATG was searching through the market for a more systematic solution to collect the attendance report of their staffs located across 5 different emirates in UAE. Most time attendance systems are simply not feasible as ATG had employees transferring within the branches, employees clocking in from one branch and clocking out from another, as well as having 3 different schedules. These conundrums meant that the taxi company needed a centralized system that can collect all records in one central location to generate required reports. In further consultation sessions, the local FingerTec reseller, Mobisat IT Solutions (MITS), helped ATG to identify other requirements and possible obstacles that may be encountered before suggesting a solution.
It was found that 75% of the staff had unusable fingerprints, as many of them sustained significant wear and tear from taxi repairing. However, ATG was not interested in using RFID cards or face recognition, which gave MITS no choice but to provide a different biometric solution. The TA200Plus was chosen as it had a variety of verification methods such as fingerprint, card or password. Initially, MITS installed one TA200Plus system at Arabia Taxi Dubai. After its successful implementation, the rest of the five branches followed suit. The data was collected from the head office and the required report was generated from a centralized system with the help of FingerTec’s easily managed and networked attendance solution, TCMS V2.

Example of Unusable Fingerprint
ATG has been very satisfied with their current setup of FingerTec products used. Luqman Hussain of Mobisat IT Solutions goes on to mention that “after the successful implementation, MITS had received an order of 9 units with the same requirement for Habeebee Food Group, which is a sister company of Arabia Taxi Group”.
