The Challenges Faced Because of the Swipe-in/Swipe-out Latency Issues

You may be familiar with the tedious process of extracting data from various controllers. Not just that, there are other direct and indirect challenges you may have faced because of the Swipe-in/Swipe-out latency issues.




Leadership lacks good insights into all the data that was being collected through the sensors.

Unable to leverage the data to help with the betterment of the staff and provide a proactive level of security to female employees.

Solution Steps Taken To Record Real-Time Data

We helped the client process all swipe-in and swipe-out records in real-time using the AWS services. The code for the solution is designed keeping in mind the best practices of product development, so that it is easily packaged and distributed to its customers, thereby increasing their business while using the same solution internally.

The solution was built to provide the following: 

  • Near real-time door swipe in/out data to be available to any employee on customer internal portals and mobile devices for Employee Time on Floor (ToF) and Employee Time in Campus (TIC).
  • Maximum delay of 3-4 minutes from swipe to generate ToF and TIC reports.
  • Report displaying within 200 Milliseconds of request. 
  • Processing of 1.5 million swipes a day across 8000 controllers located across India.
  • Allowing Employees to manually override/edit Time in Campus timings. 
  • Allowed employees to edit the last 14 days’ TIC. 
  • Visibility of 3 months of data (not real-time but on-demand). 
  • Instant notifications to managers and HR updating if,
    • A female employee is working alone on the floor 
    • A female employee is working alone but will be joined by ‘N’ employee(s) 
    • A female employee is leaving late or the Swipe IN/OUT card reader is not working.


  • AWS QuickSight dashboards that provide the following intelligence:
    • Female employee shift trend analytics 
    • Employees having low/high floor time 
    • Number of times employees go out of the floor on an average
