With so many types of biometric time clocks available, how do you find the device that best suits your business? From facial recognition devices to HandPunch devices, here’s what you need to know.
Fingerprint readers enable your employees to punch in and out using their unique fingerprints as identification — a great way to eliminate buddy punching.
Face readers work in a similar way but use facial recognition technology instead of fingerprints to identify employees when they are clocking in and out of work. It’s an easy process for employees, who simply have to show their faces to the device to punch in and out, and, with verification taking less than a second, it’s a real time saver too.
Hand readers, also known as HandPunch biometric time clocks, use hand geometry technology to verify employees. These devices measure the size and shape of the hand, but do not take fingerprints or palm prints.
In addition to biometric data capture, many of our time clocks use RFID cards and HID (proximity) cards for employee verification. For an additional layer of security, photo capture terminals can be programmed to take a picture of your employees every time they clock in and out.
Biometric time clock systems can benefit businesses in every sector, from retail to construction and healthcare.
Many of our time clock machines are configured to meet the needs of specific businesses. There are packages designed for convenience stores, which include workforce scheduling software that automatically matches employees to open shifts within your chosen parameters. Other devices are geared towards the construction industry, with rugged, portable fingerprint readers that can withstand the harsh conditions of an outdoor construction site. You’ll also find terminals designed for small, medium or large sized businesses, depending on the number of employees they can enroll.
Employee time clock devices have many benefits when it comes to manufacturing, from ringing a bell to indicate the start and end of each shift to recording how much time an employee has spent on a particular task or project. There are advantages, too, for highly regulated businesses, such as skilled nursing facilities. With biometric employee tracking, keeping track of HPPD (hours per patient day) ratios becomes much easier, freeing you up to concentrate on caring for your patients. As for restaurant kitchens, these can benefit greatly from hygienic solutions such as hands-free facial recognition terminals which allow employees to clock in while maintaining a sterile work environment.
With so many configurations available, how do you find the best punch in clock for your business? That all depends on your specific needs. If you have many employees clocking in at the same time, a quick solution such as fingerprint or face reader machines are best for preventing bottlenecks.
Portable fingerprint readers are ideal for managing attendance in the construction industry, since they allow your employees to clock in and out in different offsite locations. Schools and colleges might benefit from terminals that include bell ringing options to mark the beginning and end of lessons and study periods. Facial recognition kiosks, meanwhile, are perfect for work environments like restaurants that need to be kept clean, since employees can punch in without touching them. Face readers are also a great solution for hospitals and medical centers, where it’s difficult for employees to use fingerprint readers because they are often wearing gloves.
