South Africa's farming and construction industries are rapidly embracing technology to improve operations, and attendance monitoring is no exception. Historically, tracking employee attendance involved manual timekeeping using pen and paper, leading to mountains of paperwork and errors. However, new technology has made attendance monitoring a vital asset for any farm or construction site.

Agrigistics Labour Solution

Agrigistics Labour Solution offers an innovative system that enables farmers and construction managers to monitor their employees anytime, anywhere. Our system uses RFID wristbands, fingerprints, and facial recognition technology to track and accurately monitor employee attendance. This technology brings numerous benefits, including reducing errors, eliminating manual timekeeping, and improving workforce management.

Flexible and Adaptable Data Capture

Our solution is designed to be flexible and adaptable, catering to the unique needs of each site. Whether you need to add clocks on an Android device or through our online portal, Agrigistics makes it simple:

  1. Adding Clocks: Easily create manual clocks for any employee on any day from both the dashboard and employee overview.

    • Access Time & Attendance: Tap the foreman's wristband on the back of the device to access the module.
    • Clocking In: Tap the green + icon, select an activity, and scan the employee tag. The system displays the date, time, and employee name.

  2. Clock Out:some text
    • Tap the red icon to transition to the clock-out screen, scan the employee tag, and confirm their clock-out status.

RFID Wristbands

RFID wristbands are wearable technology that uses radio frequency identification (RFID) to identify and monitor individuals. Each wristband contains a small chip programmed with a unique identifier code. Once the wristband is assigned, it becomes the employee’s digital identity, allowing you to accurately track their activities and attendance in real-time.

Biometric Technology

Agrigistics understands that every farm and construction site is unique. That’s why we offer the option of fingerprint and facial recognition. This biometric technology accurately identifies and tracks employee attendance, allowing managers to monitor activities and hours with precision.

The Benefits of RFID & Biometric Technology

This technology eliminates the need for manual timekeeping, reduces the risk of errors, and ensures that only authorised employees can clock in. Biometric technology also allows managers to monitor employee performance and identify areas for improvement, optimising operations and increasing productivity. With just a few clicks, you can see who is present on your site and the tasks they are working on at any given time. This real-time visibility offers unparalleled insights into your workforce, empowering you to make informed decisions regarding resource allocation, task assignments, and overall management.

Live Data for Payroll

Agrigistics simplifies workforce management by providing a comprehensive overview of each employee’s attendance history, performance, and related data. But that’s not all. The integration extends to payroll, ensuring a smooth and efficient process from attendance tracking to wage calculations.

Activity Tracking

Capturing activity units is crucial for tracking productivity and performance. Agrigistics allows you to:

  1. Navigate to Activity Units: Go to Data Review / Activity Units on the Agrigistics portal.
  2. Initiate Addition: Click on the green + icon to add units.
  3. Allocate Units: Select the employee and supervisor, specify the location, choose the activity, enter the units, set the date and time, and mark as under review if necessary.

Leave Management

Managing leave is straightforward with Agrigistics. Capture leave from the dashboard, leave data review, or the Employee Overview Management Report. Specify the employee(s), leave type, start and end dates, and additional information. The system calculates the leave amount and ensures accurate records.


The use of RFID wristbands and biometric technology has the potential to revolutionise the farming and construction industries in South Africa. Agrigistics Labour Solution provides an innovative and efficient way to monitor employee attendance, track performance, and process payroll. This technology will help maximise productivity, optimise business operations, and stay competitive in the market.
