Rarely will a factory or warehouse, a store or office avoid the buddy-system misuse of registering the arrival or departure of an employee by someone else. Estimates tag business loss in the hundreds of thousands of dollars annually from “buddy-punching” at unmonitored time clocks. Because of that huge loss, more enterprises are moving toward biometric time punching systems.
From timeclockeshop.com, you have a choice between two primary-input systems: fingerprint or facial feature-oriented devices ensure the employee being punched in or out is actually the one present to do so. The Lathem FaceIN FR650 Time Clock, for example, scans the facial features of an employee, compares it to the file photo and registers the in- or out-action for that employee.
The FR650 can easily hold up to 50 employees and sports the facial scanning software and offers additional features such as a Personal Identification Number or PIN recognition system or ID card reader. Touted as more hygienic than fingerprint readers, employees simply look directly at the time clock for a few moments, and the device scans the visual files, finds the employee and automatically marks the time and attendance file.
If you prefer a fingerprint reader, multiple choices can make the decision harder. From as few as 50 employees to over 200 employees, your fingerprint scanner can quickly and accurately use the ridges on employee hands to ensure the right person is clocking in or out and that a friend isn’t helping to falsify attendance and payroll records.
