Tensor has an IT partner status with the CSCS. We have developed our .NET suite of products to allow a seamless integration between the CSCS smartcard and our Access Control, Time Management, Visitor/Contractor Management and Fire/Evacuation roll-call systems, including Turnstiles and Biometric verification devices (facial recognition, hand scanning & fingerprint recognition).
The integration allows a “one card fits all” philosophy where Contractors who attend CSCS sites use their existing CSCS smartcard to not only identify them as a CSCS certified tradesman, but also to clock in/out of site for presence monitoring, grant access to the site and log them on and off the evacuation roll-call which is automatically printed when an alarm is triggered.
Construction workers and other people who hold a CSCS card can use their existing card to clock onto a Tensor Time & Attendance system and/or gain access to a construction site or similar, or use the CSCS card to gain access through turnstiles or car park barriers.
Within Tensor.NET there is a CSCS card wizard. This allows system users to quickly grant contractors access to their clocks and access control system. The wizard will handle three different scenarios when granting access rights to contractors. These are:
For each different scenario the wizard will guide the user through the enrolment procedure. In general terms though, the end result of using the wizard is that:
Templates for badges can be previewed by the user to see how their badge will appear, populating it with their personal details. Previewed badges can then be printed to any windows supported card printer.
