People are confusing finger scannes which fit on your fingers and which are used to scan parcels in a mailcentre with finger print scanners.

The result is that the company saves two pounds and change in actual OPG costs in the first quarter in each mail centre. Less once you take away the time lost for crowds of folk lining up to swipe in and out of each area. After that, the whole scheme gets quietly ignored. The swipe out stations stay, though, gathering dust as monuments to one more flavor-of-the-month management fad.

They want to trial this approach in a number of sites and they would also like to pay and record hours based on this technology. They have also expressed their desire to have this broken out into each task and use it as a resourcing tool but this is a lot more difficult. This is what Royal Mail have formally discussed and written to the CWU on under the data capture trial.
Apparently this technology is used in places like Amazon warehouses and several other large businesses.

It might stop ghost overtime and the goodwill of a few posties who regularly do loads of overtime for the managers. It might just mean that everyone will have to start leaving loops if they know they might not get paid any 'agreed overtime' with the managers for it; and the managers will just have to go out and deliver themselves. As if they didn't do enough in our office already.
