Power BI

Posted on by 130

When registering employees in the morning and afternoon by scanning the access card or by tapping the access card at the gates, is there a way to retrieve the employee data by sharing or linking it to Power BI

    Hi Mphazima,

    Power Bi should be able to connect to your biometric system if the data is stored centrally on a database and the database is accessible by an external product like Power Bi.

    What is the name of the product you are using for your access control system?

    Is it using an SQL database by any chance?
