FireFly hardware is of a purpose-built rugged design with a proven track record of catering for harsh mining conditions. A Multi-site Coal Miner utilises the FireFly Venus multispectral fingerprint biometric sensors in order to mitigate the dusty, wet, static, abrasive and temperature extremities of a Coal Mining environment.
FireFly keeps track of over 45 000 employees at a Multi-site Gold Mining Organisation, centrally managed and distributed over 23 operations. The system is used for Time and Attendance, real time shift control, enforcement of health and safety. The system communicates in real time with users and may stop employees from entering or warn them of pending health and safety certificate expiries.
Business rules are always executed, regardless of the availability of networks or short-term power failures. The FireFly system hardware will enforce business rules for up to 7 days in offline mode. Multiple clock points, intelligent battery backup and the hot swappable nature of the equipment allow for uninterrupted operations.
