The use of a photo box for employee photos
The employees in your company are given the opportunity to create and / or update their individual employee photo at a fixed or periodically alternating location (e.g. in the dining room or the company canteen or HR department).
It is essential that this is achieved in the form of a self-service process and that you do not need additional staff on site.
This gives your workforce the option of fully identifying themselves around the clock with their individual employee photo.
The staff photos are automatically cut to the best format, removed from disruptive elements in the background and optionally saved in various formats and aspect ratios.
A suggested solution
You position a photo box set up for employee photos in your company (e.g. in the HR department, at the ID or at the entrance in a relaxed corner.
The space requirement is approx. 1.5m x 1m.
There, employees can sit down in front of the photo box, similar to a passport photo machine, and read the instructions for the required actions on the screen.
The screen serves as a touchscreen at the same time as an input terminal for the required information such as B. Employee ID, first name, family name and / or date of birth.
Alternatively, the photobox can also be set up so that the data can be read directly from the employee ID. The data recorded in this way are 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 photograph of the employee picture, the background of the photo can be automatically exchanged for one or many of the 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 specified by you (e.g. square for the ActiveDirectory). The name of the file is used to compare the photo taken and the in-house employee data record. We would be happy to support your IT department in determining the import interface.
As an extra option, a biometric check and a cut on a biometric ID photo are available.
The image output can take place in parallel in many forms.
So you always have the right photo for
Facebook, Outlook, LinkedIn, XING, WhatsApp & Co, Instagram, the CRM system, Twitter
etc. are available.
Of course, each file can also be “personalized” with the help of the company logo and / or the name and position of the employee are immediately on the picture.

How does the employee get his photo?
So that not only the CRM system or the ActiveDirectory get the new pictures, there are three different ways for the employee to receive his photo digitally.
- Enter the email address at the end of the photo sequence.
The captured photo is sent directly to the employee's email address.
- Download via QR code from an offline gallery
The photobooth provides a private WLAN which the employee has to dial into.
At the end of the sequence, a QR code is displayed on the touchscreen. The QR code leads to an offline gallery in which employees can download their recordings. 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 recording, a code is displayed or printed on the touchscreen, which the employee can use to load his original recording and the various formats for the various target systems.
Additional deployment options
To get the most out of your investment, you have the following possible uses:
- Recordings of groups of visitors, e.g. after a tour
- Use at employee parties (summer party, Christmas party ...}
- Photo attraction at customer events & meetings

The need for investment
The cost of buying a photo box optimized 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 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 directly.
Since the system was introduced in 2019, two systems have been permanently set up in Germany and Switzerland.
Both at WWZ AG in Zurich and at Haufe Lexware, the system has met with great approval from employees.
