Facial Recognition during a pandemic and post-COVID19
Filmetrics Corporation developed an advanced facial recognition log-in / log-out system.
The ongoing global pandemic trumped the accessibility and practicality of fingerprint scanners in the workplace. Work-from-home setup has been imposed nationwide by the Philippine government. Workplace health and safety was pushed to the forefront of the checklist when determining which biometric authentication method businesses should be adopted in this new normal.
Filmetrics Corporation, one of the experts in the identity management solutions industry, developed Lilo, which helps businesses that are adopting a work-from-home scheme.
Mr. Francis Cruz, Filmetrics Corporation President, pondered a shift in the business sector to facial recognition, in a bid to help prevent the spread of the disease. The company in March 2020, started offering free access to Lilo.
Mr. Cruz says, "Filmetrics (and the Cruz Family) has always been focused on supporting nation building. And now, at this time of national and worldwide crisis, we want to help in any way we can. We realized that one way to support this is to prevent transmission in the most basic activity of timekeeping, where we find there is a lot of contact and not very sanitary."
Filmetrics Corporation's Lilo is a great example of how to alleviate the concerns regarding fingerprint scanners (being a contact-heavy surface), as it employs facial recognition to eliminate touch / contact. The consensus in the industry predicts facial recognition overtaking fingerprint scanning due to its innate touchless, therefore hygienic characteristic. Even before the COVID-19 Pandemic, there has been a surge in organizations opting for facial recognition rather than fingerprint scanners. Mobile companies, most notably, have been replacing their phones' access control components from fingerprint scanners to facial recognition.

Mr. Cruz emphasizes, "With cameras being readily available in almost all devices (i.e. laptops, cellphones, and tablets), transitioning to facial recognition can be seamless." Visit www.filmetrics.com.ph for more insights regarding Lilo.
