There is still a very real need for companies to use time clocks. Using a time clock is still commonly regarded as the best way to keep track of the hours that employees work. However, it is very important to have a high degree of accuracy in using these types of systems.
Many companies have switched to using a biometric time clock to eliminate problems with accuracy. Some older clock systems are prone to glitches that create delays and inaccuracies in employee payments.
When your company switches to a biometric system, you’ll be able to leave issues with inaccuracies behind through use of the latest software. Your employees will be happier because they can put delayed paychecks behind them.
These systems offer support for fingerprint recognition. Identifying employees by fingerprints is a good security measure, especially in workplaces that require extra protection. The good thing about using a more advanced system is that the fingerprint readers can read fingerprints from dirty, oily or gloved hands without any problems.
Allied Time is an example of a company that makes biometric time clocks that offer facial recognition features. It is a very hygienic option, because there is no physical contact and it is also very accurate. Up to 60 facial features are scanned within a period of two seconds, allowing for the most accurate results. Companies benefit from this extra layer of security, especially in situations where preventing unauthorized entry is crucial.
Another reason so many companies use biometric systems is to prevent a practice known as buddy punching. When an employee is late or absent, it is not uncommon to ask a co-worker to punch them in when the co-worker arrives. This practice often causes companies to lose money. When a biometric clock is the time clock of choice, companies are better-equipped to eliminate this problem.
Time clocks are here to stay for companies that pay their employees by the hour. However, using a more advanced system helps ensure that employees report their time on the job accurately. The technology that these companies employ helps ensure that their employees receive the correct payment for the time worked.
