Recording people’s attendance automatically is required to replace the traditional and manual form filling method. To run the business efficiently, a company needs a good system to monitor people who visit their site such as a garden or a plantation regularly. The recording method that usually practiced back then is by filling the information manually in a paper-based visitor book, however, this method takes time and involves tiresome works. The solution to that issue is by creating an automated system to help the company record a more accurate, secure and efficient visitor data.
The client is an established and respected Malaysian property developer which earned a distinguished reputation in improving people’s lives by building good quality homes, while 2008 marked the expansion into oil palm plantation in Indonesia. The company asked WGS to help them develop a desktop-based guest recording system integrated with the Finger Print and WebCam to record visitor information who visit their plantation.
There are three roles in this system:
This user is an account who looks after the management of all network in the system, including the create an assignment for user role and access to the features.
A supervisor is a user with limited access to use the menus and features in the system.
This user is the employee of the company who works at the front gate of the plantation area and has limited access to all menus and features in the system.
We would like to share some interesting features in this application, as follows:
- Finger scan
The scan machine will detect whether a visitor is a registered user or not before entering the plantation area. A registered visitor can directly enter the plantation area, while the unregistered user has to fill the registration form in the Guest List menu in the system and will be assisted by the staff.

In this feature, the user manages the sign-in process such as the email and password validation and authentification for every user in the system.
The user can filter visitor data in a particular period from the graphics displayed by the system on this page.
The user can manage the visitor data, including adding and editing new user based on visitor id card, full name, finger scan, phone number, and visitor photo through a camera connected to the system.

The feature will be used when there is an important message should be delivered to the staff.
