Do you want to keep your inventory of employee photos up to date for one of the following areas?
- Business Cards
- Passport photos for travel planning
- HR systems
Then there is a photo box from Photo Booth Deluxe worth considering.
The mission goal
The employees in your company are given the opportunity to photograph their own employee photo and/or update it at a fixed or regularly changing location (e.g. in the casino or the company canteen or human resources department).
It is essential that this is achieved in the form of a self-service process and that you do not need extra employees on site.
You give your staff the opportunity to always fully identify themselves with their personal employee photo.
The personal photos can be automatically optimized to the optimal format, freed from disturbing elements in the background and optionally saved in different sizes and aspect ratios.
One possible solution
You place a photo box optimized for employee photos in your company (e.g. in the Katine, at the ID card or at the entrance 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 see the operating instructions for the necessary actions 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 data such as B. ID, name, surname and/or date of birth.
Alternatively, the photo box can also be set up in such a way that the data is read in immediately from the company ID card. The information collected in this way then becomes part 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 set up.
Following the recording of the employee picture, the background of the recording can be automatically replaced with one or different backgrounds specified by you. Likewise, the head of each photo is analyzed, scaled to a specified size and positioned at a defined point on the final image.
The recording is saved in a size and aspect ratio defined by you (eg square for the Active Directory). A comparison is made between the saved portrait and the in-house employee data record via the name of the file. We would be happy to help your IT department define the import interface.
A biometric check and a cut to a biometric ID photo are available as additional extensions.
The image output can take many forms at the same time.
So you always have the best photo for
Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, the CRM system, WhatsApp & Co, LinkedIn, XING, Outlook
etc. at hand.
Of course, each file can also be "personalized" with company logos and/or the name and position of the employee will appear directly on the image.
BENEFITS of automatic photo processes for reliable employee photos
- Employee photos according to their corporate design
- minimal labor
- perfect throughput speed if many employees are to be photographed in a small time interval
- RAW data is also saved if necessary
- Automatically created perfect staff photos in the highest DSLR quality and studio flash technology
- additional data acquisition before or during the acquisition sequence
- the employee photo box is significantly more cost-effective than a hired photographer
- even the name of the employee can be automatically inserted into the photo without manual rework.
- automatic branding with your background and logo.
How does the employee get the picture?
So that not only the CRM system or the Active Directory can enjoy the new photos, there are three different ways for the employee to get his photo digitally.
- Enter the email address at the end of the photo sequence.
The photo taken is sent immediately to the employee's email inbox.
- Download from an online gallery
At the end of the photo sequence, a code is displayed on the screen or printed out, which the employee can use to copy his original photo and the various versions for the various target systems.
- Download from an offline gallery via QR code
The photobooth 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. The QR code leads to an offline gallery where employees can save their photos. In contrast to the online gallery, this path is only possible in the immediate vicinity of the photo box.
In order to make the best possible use of the acquisition, you have the following options:
- Use at employee parties (summer party, Christmas party ...}
- Photos of groups of visitors, for example after a presentation
- Production of biometric passport photos and ID photos
- Use at trade fairs to issue personalized “flyers”
- Photo attraction at customer events & meetings
- Employee photos (as explained above)
The need for investment
The cost of purchasing a photo box optimized in this way starts at around €4,400 plus VAT and is worthwhile for companies with around 100 or more employees.
Of course, there is also the option to test 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 system 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 Zurich and at Haufe Lexware, the system is very well received by employees.
