Automatically create professional employee portraits in Munich
Reading time approx. 4 minutes.
Would you like to keep your inventory of employee portraits for one of the following areas up to date?
- Credit cards
- Passport photos for travel planning
Then there is a photo box from Photo Booth Deluxe worth considering.
What should be achieved?
The employees in your company are given the opportunity to photograph and / or update their personal employee photo at a fixed or regularly changing location (e.g. in the casino or the company canteen or HR department).
It is important that this takes place in the form of a self-service process and that additional personnel are not needed on site.
You give your staff the chance to identify themselves completely around the clock with their personal employee photo.
The staff photos are automatically adapted to the optimal format, removed from annoying elements in the background and, if desired, saved in various dimensions and aspect ratios.
You position a photo box optimized for employee photos in your company (e.g. in the Katine, at the ID card or at the reception in a quiet corner.
The space requirement is approx. 1.5m x 1m.
There, the employees will stand in front of the photo box, similar to a passport photo machine, and read the operating instructions for the required steps on the touchscreen.
The monitor serves as a touchscreen at the same time as an input terminal for the necessary information such as B. Employee ID, first name, family name and / or date of birth.
Alternatively, the photo box can also be set up so that the data can simply be read from the company ID card. The information collected in this way then becomes an element of the file name of the employee photo taken.
Optionally, a disclaimer screen can also be set up with a confirmation option for internal / external use of the employee profile.
After the photo of the employee portrait, the background of the recording can be automatically exchanged for one or more of the background settings you have specified. The head of each photo is also found, adjusted to a specified size and placed on the final image at a specified location.
The image is saved in a size and aspect ratio that you specify (eg square for the ActiveDirectory). The name of the file is used to compare the saved portrait and the internal employee data record. We would be happy to support your IT department in specifying the interface.
A biometric check and an adaptation to a biometric ID photo are available as an extra option.
The image output can take place synchronously in different formats.
So you always have the best photo for
Instagram, XING, Facebook, Twitter
etc. within easy reach.
Of course, each file can also be “branded” with company logos and / or the name and position of the employee are immediately visible on the picture.
Advantages of automated photo processes for professional employee photos
- optimized throughput speed if many employees have to be photographed in a short period of time
- optional data acquisition before or during the recording sequence
- Employee portraits according to your corporate design
- minimized work time
- Independently made professional staff photos in maximum DSLR quality and studio flash technology
- even the name of the employee can be automatically inserted into the photo without manual rework.
- the employee photo box is noticeably cheaper than a hired photographer
- optional branding with your background and logo.
- RAW data can also be saved if required
How does the employee get the picture?
So that not only the CRM system or the ActiveDirectory can benefit from the new recordings, employees can choose between three different ways of receiving their photo as a file.
- Enter the email address at the end of the photo sequence.
In this case, the captured photo is immediately sent to the employee's email address.
- Download from an offline gallery via QR code
The Photo Box provides its own WLAN that the employee has to dial into.
At the end of the sequence, a QR code is displayed on the screen. That QR code leads to the offline gallery in which the employee can load his photos. In contrast to the online gallery, this path only goes in the immediate vicinity of the Photo Box.
- Download from an online gallery
At the end of the sequence, a code is displayed or printed out on the touchscreen, which the employee can use to download the original photo and the different sizes for the different target systems.
Alternative deployment options
In order to make the best possible use of your investment, you have the following options:
- Recording of biometric passport photos and ID photos
- Photos of groups of visitors, for example after a presentation
- Employee photos (as already described)
- Photo attraction at customer events & meetings
- Use at employee parties (summer party, Christmas party ...}
The cost frame
The cost of purchasing a photo box adapted in this way starts at around € 4,400 plus VAT and is worthwhile for companies with around 100 employees.
Of course, there is also the chance 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 credited to the subsequent purchase if the photo box is purchased directly.
Since the system was introduced in 2019, two systems have been set up permanently in Germany and Zurich.
The system is very popular with employees at WWZ AG in Switzerland as well as at Haufe Lexware.
