Biometric & Fingerprint Time Clock
One of the most effective and modern ways in which employees can be identified, and their hours of work can be tracked is by using Biometric Time Clock. It is much more efficient than the traditional way of punching because it eliminates buddy punching, eliminates out of schedule punching, and hence reduces payroll costs.
Biometric Time Clocks are often placed at the entrance of the workplace or near the entrance of every individual department. Also, the Biometric Time Clock devices can sync with the working hours of employees and attendance software. This device helps a corporation to reduce labour costs by preventing time theft by employees and reducing payroll mistakes.
Working Of A Biometric Time Clock
Indeed time and attendance software can work with other time clocks like PIN clocks, proximity card locks, or web portals. Still, when the time-keeping software is synced to a Biometric Time Clock, it reduces several time-consuming management processes and provides the employer with greater control.
The working process of Biometric Time Clock is relatively easy. An employee clocks in using their required unique feature like a fingerprint, the clock then identifies the employee by matching their previously recorded biometric data and records the punch time. The Biometric Time Clock then keeps track of the working hours of each employee and adds that to the employee’s virtual card. Once the fixed payroll period ends, the time-keeping software imports the data of per employee’s hours worked into the payroll system.
The additional benefits that companies and organizations get by using Biometric Time Clocks like the Fingerprint Scanners by PeopleKey are:
- Companies also get to keep track of the duration (individual and total) of breaks taken by an employee.
- The system notifies all missed punches.
- Companies also track the overtime duration from the alerts prompted by the system.
Types Of Biometric Time Clocks Available
There is an excellent variety in which the types of Biometric Time Clocks are available in the market. However, one should choose the Biometric Time Clock carefully because some countries limit the type of Biometric data that can be collected and stored. To avoid lawsuits being filed against your company, it is advised to check the legality of using a type of Biometric Time Clock.
The different types of Biometric Time Clocks depend on the type of attributes they use. Some of the standard identifiers for Biometric Time Clock include fingerprints, facial recognition, iris scan, hand geometry, etc. Among all the mentioned types of identifiers, Fingerprint Time Clock type dominates the market demand.
PeopleKey offers excellent Fingerprint Scanners that can conduct verification in less than 1.5 seconds. Our Fingerprint Time Clock range is highly reliable because the fingerprint data of any individual is stored in the device as encrypted numeric values only. Since PeopleKey Fingerprint Scanners don’t store image data, therefore the templates cannot either form a fingerprint image by reverse engineering. Hence the biometric data of no person will ever be compromised using our Fingerprint Scanners.
