Iris ID, a provider of iris recognition technology, announced its contactless IrisAccess biometric technology is being used for employee time and attendance at hotels in Iraq which are part of Millennium & Copthorne Hotels, a London-based hotel company that manages and operates 135 luxury hotels in 80 locations worldwide.

The three Millennium hotels – the Millennium Kurdistan, the Copthorne Hotel Baranan and Millennium Kurdistan Hotel and Spa – are located in the Sulaymaniyah province in the country’s Kurdistan region.

Mohammed Murad, vice president, global sales and business development, Iris ID, said iCAM 7S series biometric readers provide a quick and accurate way to record the time employees work each day. The iCAM 7S  time and attendance units integrate with the hotels’ payroll management system to ensure accurate reporting of hours worked without any manual processes.

“The process takes a second to complete and is highly intuitive, requiring virtually no employee training to use,” he said. “The iCAM 7S platform automatically tilts to locate a person’s face and iris patterns. Also, it’s important in the COVID-19 era, that the technology is contactless and not impacted by employees wearing personal protective equipment such as gloves, masks and goggles.”
