Cheap and professional staff automatically take pictures in Düsseldorf
Reading time approx. 4 minutes.
Can you always keep your stock of workforce recordings for one of the following areas up to date?
- HR systems
- Passport photos for travel planning
- Credit cards
- Employee IDs
Then a photobooth is from Photo Booth Deluxe worth considering.
What should be achieved?
The workforce in your company has the opportunity to take a personal employee photo and / or bring it up to date at a fixed or regularly changing location (e.g. in the dining room or the company canteen or HR department).
It is important that this takes place in the form of a self-service process and that you do not need extra staff on site.
You give your employees the opportunity to always identify themselves to 100% with their individual employee photo.
The staff photos can be automatically cut to the appropriate format, removed from annoying elements in the background and optionally saved in various sizes and aspect ratios.
You place a photo booth optimized for employee photos in your company (e.g. in the Katine, at the ID or at the reception in a quiet corner.
The space requirement is approx. 1.5m x 1m.
There, the employees can sit in front of the photo box in the same way as with the passport photo machine and see the operating instructions for the required steps on the display.
The screen serves as a touch screen at the same time as an input terminal for the necessary information such as B. Employee ID, name, family name and / or date of birth.
Alternatively, the photobox can also be programmed so that the data can be read directly from the company ID card. The information recorded in this way then becomes part of the file name of the employee photo.
Optionally, a data protection screen can also be displayed with a sharing option for internal / external use of the photo.
After the photo of the employee has been taken, the background of the photo can be automatically replaced with one or many of the backgrounds you have specified. In the same way, the head is found for every photo, adjusted to a specified size and positioned on the final image at a defined position.
The image is saved in a size and format that you specify (e.g. square for the ActiveDirectory). The file name is used to compare the saved portrait and the in-house employee data set. We would be happy to support your IT department in defining the import interface.
A biometric check and an adaptation to a biometric ID photo are available as an additional expansion stage.
The image output can happen at the same time in several forms.
So you always have the best photo for
WhatsApp & Co, XING, Facebook, the CRM system, LinkedIn, Twitter, Outlook, Instagram
Logically, each file can also be “personalized” with logos and / or the name and position of the employee can be on the picture.
ADVANTAGES of automatic photo processes for perfect employee photos
- optional branding with your background and logo.
- Even the name of the employee can be automatically inserted into the picture without manual rework.
- minimized work time
- optional data acquisition before or during the acquisition sequence
- perfect throughput speed when a large number of employees have to be photographed in a short period of time
- the employee photo box is noticeably cheaper than a rented photographer
- RAW data can also be saved on request
- Workforce recordings according to your corporate design
How does the photographed person get his picture?
So that the CRM system or the ActiveDirectory alone does not benefit from the new images, there are three different ways for the workforce to receive their photos digitally.
- Enter the e-mail address at the end of the photo sequence.
In this case, the captured photo is sent directly to the employee's mailbox.
- Download via QR code from an offline gallery
The photo box provides a private WLAN that the workforce has to dial into.
At the end of the recording, a QR code is displayed on the screen. The QR code leads to an offline gallery in which the staff can upload their photos. In contrast to the online gallery, this path only works 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 staff can use to download their original photo and the different formats for the different target systems.
Other deployment options
To get the most out of your investment, you have the following options:
- Photo attraction at customer events & congresses
- Pictures of groups of visitors, e.g. after a presentation
- Use at trade fairs to produce personalized “flyers”
- Creation of biometric passport photos and ID photos
- Employee photos (as already described)
The need for investment
The price for purchasing a photobox 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 system is taken over immediately.
Since the system was introduced in 2019, two systems have been permanently set up in Germany and Switzerland.
Both at WWZ AG in CH and at Haufe Lexware, the system is very well received by colleagues.
