Automatically create uniform employee images in Kempten im Allgäu
Reading time approx. 4 minutes.
Would you like to keep your inventory of employee photos for one of the following areas up to date?
- Passport photos for travel planning
- Credit cards
Then there is a photo box from Photo Booth Deluxe worth a moment of your time.
What should be achieved?
The employees in your company have the option of creating and/or updating their individual employee photo at a fixed location or at regularly alternating locations (e.g. in the casino or company canteen or HR department).
It is important that this takes place in the form of a self-service process and that additional employees are not required on site.
You give your employees the option to identify themselves completely around the clock with their own employee photo.
The staff photos can be independently optimized to the right format, removed from annoying elements in the background and optionally saved in many formats and aspect ratios.
You position a photo box perfect for employee photos in your company (e.g. in the cafeteria, at the ID office or at the reception in a quiet corner.
The space requirement is approx. 1.5 mx 1 m.
There, the employees can stand in front of the photo box and read the instructions for the necessary steps on the display, similar to the photo booth.
The monitor serves as a touch screen at the same time as an input terminal for the necessary information such as e.g. B. Employee ID, first name, last name and/or date of birth.
Alternatively, the Photo Box can also be configured in such a way that the data can be read directly from the business card. The information collected in this way is then an element of the file name of the employee photo taken.
Optionally, a disclaimer screen with a checkbox for internal/external use of the recording can also be displayed.
Following the recording of the employee picture, the background of the recording can be automatically replaced with one or several backgrounds specified by you. The head of each photo is also analyzed, scaled to a specified size and positioned at a specified location on the final image.
The recording is saved in a size and aspect ratio specified by you (eg square for Active Directory). A comparison between the saved image and the internal employee data record takes place via the name of the image. We would be happy to support your IT department in specifying the connection.
A biometric check and an adaptation to a biometric ID photo are available as an extra expansion stage.
The image output can take place synchronously in some formats.
So you always have the right photo for
Instagram, LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, Outlook
etc. within easy reach.
Of course, each file can also be "personalized" with company logos and/or the name and position of the employee can appear directly on the image.
Advantages of automated photo processes for reliable employee photos
- the employee photo box is noticeably cheaper than a booked portrait photographer
- automatic branding with your motif and logo.
- Extra data acquisition before or during the recording sequence
- even the name of the person photographed can be automatically inserted into the photo without manual rework.
- RAW data can also be saved if required
- perfect throughput speed if many employees are to be photographed in a small time interval
- automatically created perfect staff photos in maximum DSLR quality and studio flash technology
- Employee images according to your corporate design
How does the photographed person get the photo?
So that not only the CRM system or the ActiveDirectory can benefit from the new recordings, the employee has three different ways to get his picture as a file.
- Enter the e-mail address at the end of the photo sequence.
In this case, the captured photo is immediately sent to the employee's mailbox.
- Download from an online gallery
At the end of the recording, a code is displayed on the screen or printed out, which the employee can use to download his original recording and the different sizes for the various target systems.
- Download via QR code from an offline gallery
The photo box provides a private WLAN that the employee has to dial into.
At the end of the recording, a QR code is displayed on the touchscreen. That QR code leads to an offline gallery from which the employee can download his photos. In contrast to the online gallery, this path is only possible in the immediate vicinity of the photo booth.
Other deployment options
In order to make the best possible use of the purchase, you have the following possible uses:
- Photos of groups of visitors, for example after a tour of the company
- Production of biometric passport photos and ID photos
- Photo attraction at customer events & congresses
- Use at employee parties (summer party, Christmas party ...}
- Use at trade fairs to issue personalized “flyers”
- Employee photos (as already explained)
The need for investment
The investment for the purchase of a photo box adapted in this way starts at around €4,400 plus VAT and pays off for organizations with around 100 employees or more.
Of course, there is also the possibility to try out the system in advance on a rental basis for € 650 + € 1 / employee photo plus VAT per week.
1/2 of the rent will be offset against the subsequent purchase if the photo box is purchased immediately.
Since the system was introduced in 2019, two photo boxes have been permanently installed in Germany and Zurich.
Both at WWZ AG in Switzerland and at Haufe Lexware, the system is very well received by colleagues.
