It’s a unique software system, which stores biometric fingerprints, pictures, jobs and all other information of all workers in the factory in the local and cloud server databases, which are used later on to identify and confirm with all other factory workers. This database provides all kinds of information related to Service Book, Insurance, UD, Cash Incentive and other purposes in one-click to the garment industry personnel.

Our local organization Tiger IT Bangladesh and Systech Digital Limited have technically assisted in developing, installing, training and maintaining this unique software system.
