Employees who punch the clock for absent or tardy co-workers are costly. This practice, called "Buddy Punching" or "Ghost Employees" is effectively controlled by Biometric Time Clocks.
Touch and Go
The Fingerprint Time Clock is easy and convenient. Simply Touch the reader with a finger and the clock provides and audible "Thank You" indicating that the punch is accepted. No more need to keep a rack of employee badges, or deal with employees who forget their swipe card. Now employees can quickly punch in or out, and setting up a new employee is instant - no cards to assign or have printed.
No two fingerprints are alike, so there's never any confusion of the wrong ID card being used. Employee time is added accurately and transferred to your RealTime software so that time calculations are error-free. Missed punches or employees who forgot to clock out are easy to spot and correct with RealTime's built-in verification tools.
No Wasted Time
Punching the timeclock using a Fingerprint Time Clock takes less than 2 seconds. Employees don't have to spend time locating their badge or entering their ID through the keypad which reduces employee congestion at the timeclock.
Dry or damp environments are equally compatible with the finger print timeclock. Consistent fingerprint matching is assured through advanced technology designed into the reader. Automated exposure and intelligent image compensation provides superb performance in all environments, wet, dry and everything in between.
Dual Mode Operation
Fingerprint Time Clocks can be operated in Identify mode or Verify mode. Use Identify mode and the employee simply touches the sensor to punch. Verify mode can be used when it's desirable to have the employee enter their clock ID before touching the biometric fingerprint reader.
As a payroll professional and end-user of various payroll software applications, primarily [competitor], RealTime with fingerprint time clocks really stacks up well ... I only wish I had found this sooner, it would have saved me many headaches!
