Reading time approx. 4 minutes.
Do you intend to keep your inventory of employee photos for one of the following areas up to date?
- Employee IDs
- HR systems

Then a photo booth is from Photo Booth Deluxe worth considering.
The mission goal
The employees in your company have the chance to photograph and / or update the individual employee photo at a fixed or periodically 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 additional personnel are not needed on site.
You give your workforce the chance to identify themselves to 100% at any time with their individual employee photo.
The staff photos are automatically adapted to the appropriate format, freed from disruptive elements in the background and optionally saved in certain dimensions and aspect ratios.
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 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 read the operating instructions for the required steps on the monitor.
The monitor serves as a touch screen at the same time as an input terminal for the required data such as B. Employee ID, name, surname and / or date of birth.
Alternatively, the photo box can also be programmed so that the data can be read out directly from the company ID card. The employee data recorded in this way then becomes an element of the file name of the employee photo taken.
Optionally, a data protection screen can also be displayed with a release option for internal / external use of the photo.
After the employee portrait has been taken, the background of the image can be automatically exchanged for one or various backgrounds you have specified. In the same way, the head is determined for each photo, adjusted to a specified size and positioned on the final image at a specified location.
The photo is saved in a size and format specified by you (e.g. square for the ActiveDirectory). The name of the file is used to compare the saved portrait and the in-house employee data record. We would be happy to support your IT department in determining the interface.
A biometric check and a cut for a biometric ID photo are available as an extra extension.
The image output can take place in several sizes at the same time.
So you always have the best possible photo for
Facebook, the CRM system, Twitter, Instagram
etc. lying ready.
Of course, each file can also be “branded” with a company logo and / or the name and position of the employee will appear directly on the picture.

How does the employee get his photo?
So that the CRM system or the ActiveDirectory alone does not benefit from the new photos, the employee has three different options to get his photo as a file.
- Download from an offline gallery via QR code
The photo box provides a private WLAN that the employee has to dial into.
At the end of the photo sequence, a QR code is displayed on the screen. That QR code leads to an offline gallery in which the employee can copy down his 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 photo sequence, a code is displayed or printed out on the touchscreen, which the employee can use to load his original photo and the various formats for the various target systems.
- Enter the email address at the end of the photo sequence.
The photo taken is sent directly to the employee's inbox.
Further deployment options
In order to get the most out of your investment, you have the following options:
- Production of biometric passport photos and ID photos
- Photo attraction at customer events & congresses
- Photos of groups of visitors, e.g. after a guided tour
- Use at employee parties (summer party, Christmas party ...}
- Employee photos (as described above)
The need for investment
The price for buying such a perfected photo box starts at around € 4,400 plus VAT and is worthwhile for companies with around 100 employees.
It goes without saying that there is also the option of trying 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 offset against the later purchase if the photo box is bought immediately.
Since the system was introduced in 2019, two systems have been set up permanently in this country and in Zurich.
The system is very well received by employees at WWZ AG in Zurich and at Haufe Lexware.
