Inexpensive and professional workforce portraits independently in Aachen
Reading time approx. 4 minutes.
Do you intend to keep your workforce portraits for one of the following areas up to date?
- the CRM
- Employee IDs
Then there is a photo box from Photo Booth Deluxe worth considering.
What should be achieved?
The workforce in your company has the option of taking their own employee photo and / or bringing it up to date at a fixed location or at a regularly changing location (e.g. in the casino or the company canteen or HR department).
It is important that this is achieved in the form of a self-service process and that extra personnel are not needed on site.
You give your workforce the option to always fully identify themselves with their own employee photo.
The staff photos are automatically adapted to the optimal format, removed from annoying elements in the background and optionally saved in various formats and aspect ratios.
One possible solution
You place a photo box that is perfect for employee photos in your company (e.g. in the Katine, at the ID or at the entrance in a relaxed corner.
The space required is approx. 1.5 mx 1 m.
There the employees will sit down in front of the photo box, similar to the passport photo machine, and see the instructions for the necessary steps on the monitor.
The monitor 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 Photo Box can also be programmed so that the data can be read directly from the employee ID. The information collected in this way is then a component of the file name of the employee photo taken.
Optionally, a disclaimer screen with a checkbox for internal / external use of the image can also be set up.
After the employee picture has been taken, the background of the picture can automatically be exchanged for one or more backgrounds 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 (e.g. square for the ActiveDirectory). The file name is used to compare the recorded portrait and the internal employee data record. We would be happy to support your IT department in specifying the import interface.
A biometric check and an adaptation to a biometric ID photo are available as an option.
The image output can be done synchronously in many dimensions.
So you always have the best photo for
WhatsApp & Co, Instagram, LinkedIn, Twitter, the CRM system
etc. lying ready.
Of course, each file can also be “branded” with company logos and / or the name and position of the employee are directly visible on the picture.
Advantages of automated photo processes for professional employee photos
- even the name of the employee can be automatically inserted into the image without manual rework.
- minimal labor
- optional branding with your background and logo.
- optional data acquisition before or during the recording sequence
- perfect throughput speed if many employees need to be photographed in a short period of time
- the employee photo box is noticeably cheaper than a booked photographer
- RAW data can also be saved if required
- Independently made professional staff photos in best DSLR quality and studio lighting technology
How does the employee get the photo?
So that the CRM system or the ActiveDirectory alone does not come into possession of the new photos, the workforce can choose between three different ways to receive their photo as a file.
- Download from an online gallery
At the end of the recording, a code is displayed or printed out on the touchscreen, which the staff can use to download their original photo and the different versions for the various target systems.
- Enter the email address at the end of the photo sequence.
The captured photo is sent immediately to the employee's mailbox.
- Download from an offline gallery via QR code
The photobooth provides its own WLAN which the workforce has to dial into.
At the end of the sequence, a QR code is displayed on the screen. The QR code leads to the offline gallery where the staff can copy down their recordings. In contrast to the online gallery, this path is only possible in the direct vicinity of the photo box.
Other possible uses
In order to get the most out of your purchase, you have the following options:
- Pictures of groups of visitors, e.g. after a tour
- Photo attraction at customer events & meetings
- Use at trade fairs to issue personalized “flyers”
- Creation of biometric passport photos and ID photos
- Employee photos (as already explained)
The cost frame
The cost of purchasing such a perfected photo box starts at around € 4,400 plus VAT and pays off 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 retained directly.
Since the implementation of the system in 2019, two photo boxes have been permanently installed in this country and in Zurich.
Both at WWZ AG in Switzerland and at Haufe Lexware, the system is very well received by colleagues.
