Have you considered that the manner in which you currently record your employees’ time is frustratingly inaccurate? Are you looking for a more effective way of recording time and attendance? If so, biometric time clocks could be the answer to your prayers.
The Future, Today
Biometric clocks use innovative technology. They are an evolution to the standard punch clock. Instead of requiring employees to punch in a time sheet biometric time clocks require employees to insert their hands into a reader. The scanner then recognises their finger or palm print and matches it with an employee number.
There are two distinct technologies, used in biometric time clocks – finger and handprint recognition. Fingerprint recognition is able to identify an employee’s fingers by the distinguishing ridges and valleys. Hand identification scans the shape and size of an employee’s hand and matches it with employee records.
