Much more tasks
Biometrics help to save a lot of time and can actually perform more tasks than we would expect. Apart from simply opening doors or locks, biometrics can also be used to track employees' attendance for daily work or for courses/training. They provide accurate recording and easy tabulating of recorded data. This system would help prevent human error and also save a lot of time on administrative duty.

Biometrics are an important part of a layered approach
Biometrics are a key component for authentication use cases, and one that consumers have grown comfortable with providing. There is a high level of convenience when "you are your ID". Depending on the nature of a particular transaction, a realtime risk assessment can be done to determine whether the biometric should be used as a step-up; or in conjunction with other information provided by the consumer (what you know, what you have); or in conjunction with attributes passively provided by the device they are using. At the time of a new account opening, or for high-value transactions, a combination of authentication methods, both actively involving the user and in the background, can provide security as well as convenience.
