June 2021. NoahFace announces that the NoahFace App has been updated with support for voice control. This allows functions that previously required button presses to be operated in a completely touchless way. For Example:
To use voice control with NoahFace, just enable it under iPadOS settings / Accessibility. You can then speak commands such as: "Tap Confirm".
The future is (even more) touchless!
June 2021. NoahFace announces deep integration with ELMO Payroll, providing ELMO customers with comprehensive iPad and Mobile clocking capabilities including:
May 2021. NoahFace announces the addition of comprehensive functionality to record both unpaid breaks, such as meal breaks, and paid breaks, such as rest breaks, to our world-leading clocking solutions.
In many industries and work places employees are entitled to additional payments if breaks are not provided. Accurate records of breaks are therefore critical to help organisations demonstrate they have paid employees appropriately in the event of an audit or legal dispute.
Just as importantly, organisations are recognising that breaks are important to maximise employee productivity and wellbeing. They are measuring breaks to drive these positive outcomes.
April 2021. NoahFace announces comprehensive integration with Definitiv People Management, providing Definitiv customers with with comprehensive iPad and Mobile clocking capabilities including:

Jan 2021. Not to sound too gloomy as we launch, ever hopeful, into 2021.
However, even the largest organisations will agree that they were unprepared for COVID-19, with the pandemic taking its toll on business. According to McKinsey, more than 50 billion-dollar companies filed for bankruptcy in 2020 in the United States alone.
So, it’s worth considering: what could we have done to prepare better, differently – and what has this situation taught us about high-consequence, low-likelihood risks such as the COVID-19 crisis?
Dec 2020. NoahFace announces a major update to support an increasingly mobile workforce. NoahFace is:
Dec 2020. Biometric facial recognition used to be the stuff of science fiction. But recently, it’s been rapidly adopted by businesses of all sizes to help tackle the problem of time and attendance tracking versus fingerprint scanners, in a safety conscious and dispersed workforce.
NoahFace partners, Microkeeper hosted a webinar on all things touchless time tracking.
Topics covered include privacy, mobile, super-fast clocking, and the higher authentication accuracy of facial recognition.
Oct 2020. NoahFace featured on Aussie home makeover show The Block last night on Channel 9. As the teams pull out of "iso", maybe we should tell them that NoahFace is completely touchless (and elegantly iPad-based).
It's nice to know Shaynna can be recognised in future for touchless entry :)
Everyone deserves a safe space .... even The Block contestants!
Oct 2020. Prior to COVID-19, employee under-payment was thrust into the spotlight through the media coverage of several high-profile organisations who failed to record and pay their staff appropriately.
Embarrassing … but also illegal.
Since then, new legislation requires employers to keep time and attendance and pay records of employees for a minimum of seven years. An onerous task for many.
Just as businesses get used to the tightening of rules around payroll, COVID-19 enters our world. And a new compliance requirement has emerged – which includes a workplace health and safety obligation to minimise the risk of employee infection in the workplace.
Employers are now responsible for preventing COVID-19 transmission in the workplace with the same responsibilities and liabilities as any other job hazard. And these responsibilities extend to the ‘work-from-home’ environment.
All of this is prompting many organisations to throw their existing time and attendance and payroll solutions up in the air for a good, healthy rethink.
Sep 2020. Getting people back to work safely is easier said than done. Two in three employees are nervous about returning to work, according to a Qualtrics study.
Over half of workers want to see measures taken to protect them. And as new safe workplace principles and guidelines stress that employers are responsible for protecting workers’ health and safety – that means businesses need to have a strategy.
And it starts at the front door.
NoahFace now offers a suite of touchless solutions that enable global companies to safely get back to business – by reducing the number of touch points for workers.
May 2020. NoahFace has created the world's first unmanned and touchless temperature screening kiosk using opto-thermal scanning.
Staff take one look at the mounted iPad, they are instantly recognised using facial recognition technology, and their temperature is automatically recorded. If they appear to have an elevated temperature, they can be denied access or provided with customised instructions, and an alert can be sent to stakeholders via email.
Temperature screening can be used with both Time and Attendance and Access Control solutions.
Apr 2020. Australian paper and hygiene system manufacturer, Royal Touch, has replaced its high-touch timesheet system with a hands-free facial recognition solution from NoahFace.
“Improving the efficiency and accuracy of our time keeping records drove our decision to move to NoahFace, but the touch free interface has proven to be a fantastic attribute in the current environment,” said Dominic Chetcuti, director at Royal Touch. “The system has already shown its value and been welcomed by our staff.”
Apr 2020. NoahFace announces the launch of the NoahFace Go mobile time and attendance solution, specifically designed for staff that work from home or from multiple work locations.
NoahFace Go can be used for simple clock in / clock out applications, tracking the time spent on tasks or projects, as well as tracking the time spent on individual jobs.
NoahFace Go is available for both iPhones and Android phones, and connects to the NoahFace platform to provide secure data retention as well as searching, viewing, and reporting on events.
Nov 2019. The NoahFace iPad based access panel can be mounted next to a door, replacing or augmenting a card reader to provide:
solutions to organisations using Inception controllers.
In 2015 café owner Geoff Cropley came to the realisation that his business would run a lot smoother and he’d have a better relationship with his customers if he could remember their names and orders. You know what it’s like. You walk into your favourite café and they know your order. It makes the experience even better if they remember your name. As a customer you feel engaged and appreciated and are more likely to be loyal.
After scouring the world for a system that would work for his business, Geoff realized that using facial recognition technology would be the perfect solution. The problem was, such a system didn’t exist. So, instead of giving up, Geoff invented it. After 18 months of prototyping and stress testing in a real-life environment, and seeing large improvements in customer loyalty and profitability in his business, Noah Facial Recognition Pty Ltd was launched.
The faces of customers at Sydney's Bahista Cafe are scanned by an iPad as they approach the barista at the coffee machine. Instantly the customer's name, favourite order and whether they are due for a loyalty reward flashes up on another iPad facing staff.
ORDERING a coffee is coming with an extra bit of technology thanks to an innovative North Sydney company. NoahFace has created software that remembers cafe customers' faces and their favourite drink. The idea for the technology started brewing when Geoff Cropley and Julie Buchanan opened up Bahista Cafe in Sydney three years ago ...
Recently Channel 10 Eyewitness News ran this story about how the customers of Bahista Café in Sydney's CBD have really embraced the technology and appreciate the higher level of personal service they now enjoy.
