Lisburn based company NTD (North Time Data Ltd) has successfully installed more than 30 state-of-the-art biometric facial recognition terminals for leading beef and lamb suppliers, Foyle Food Group.

Spanning six sites in Northern Ireland, Republic of Ireland and England, the new systems were part of a significant investment strategy by the group into a more comprehensive employee time management system.

Group HR manager Leslie Otterson, said: “North Time Pro works beautifully; all our employees need to do is stand in front of the system and it clocks them in and out in an instant.”

NTD Managing Director, Stephen Brown, said the system used facial recognition technology for managing time and attendance and access control.

“The system really is foolproof,” he said.
