Company Profile

Shriram Transport Finance Company (STFC) was incorporated in the year 1979. With its head-office in Mumbai, STFC has 700+ branches across India. It is a part of the ‘SHRIRAM’ conglomerate, which has significant presence in financial services viz., commercial vehicle financing business, consumer finance, life and general insurance, stock broking, chit funds and distribution of financial products such as life and general insurance products and units of mutual funds. Apart from these financial services, the group also has presence in the non-financial sector business such as property development, engineering projects and information technology.


The 700+ branches of the company include the head-office, regional offices and branch offices under each of the regional offices. Previously, the company was using biometric devices of a different brand at some of its locations, while managed attendance data manually at the remaining locations. As a result, accurate attendance management of all employees at each location and processing their salaries on time became a tedious, time consuming and error prone task for the HR team.

STFC was looking for a biometric based centralized Time-Attendance solution. They wanted centralized Time-Attendance management of all employees from its Mumbai based head-office. Along with attendance management, the company was also looking for a solution that would help them monitor and control any unauthorized entry at the branches. Additionally, they wanted to integrate the Time-Attendance software with their existing HRMS software for speedy and timely salary processing.

Matrix Offered Solution

Matrix offered its enterprise-grade, web based COSEC Time-Attendance solution with centralized attendance and leave management features. Biometric fingerprint based devices were installed at all locations to mark a user’s attendance. For fast and error-free salary processing, Matrix integrated COSEC Time-Attendance with their existing HRMS payroll software. At branches where the company required access control, Matrix has installed biometric fingerprint based access control devices to control people movement. This comprehensive solution automated all Time-Attendance processes right from recording entries and exits up to processing salaries.
