One of the most important tasks for a well-run business is keeping accurate time and attendance records for employees. Whether big, small or somewhere in between, companies that pay employees by the hour have many clocking in systems to explore.
Biometric Clocking Systems
Biometric clocking systems have four compelling features that save time and money:
- Constant availability
- Device integration
- Adaptable to future needs
- Hacker proof
The Linux operating system allows better synchronization with multiple network conditions. Companies can use DHCP to provide IP addresses and remotely configure the biometric time clock by logging into a web browser. Information is cached in memory, making it readily available even during network outages.
Onsite installation is easy because this system is set to interface with a centralized network. Local installation also considers server security precautions. All types of clocks work seamlessly to accurately capture when employees clock in for work.
Adaptable to Future Needs
HR professionals can appreciate the upside to buying a biometric time clock system. The need for a mobile workforce and other work habits that require flexibility makes this the perfect fit. A centralized system accepts data from any device.
Manager can communicate with employees individually or in a group. The system also tells managers when and the number of staff onsite at any given moment. Mitrefinch’s biometric time clock in system is cost-effective with an extended lifespan.
Strong security is important for every company in today’s cyber-drenched world. Some systems get around glitches that could compromise data. Mitrefinch factors those issues into testing the software before releasing it to customers. Overall security of employee access and clocking in is enhanced.
Onsite clocking systems allow increased efficiency. This means utilizing software that works from a remote computer or onsite. Information seamlessly passes information to the right place. Features for proximity systems include:
- Interface with existing system
- Employees work online or offline
- Simplified remote configuration
- Easy-to-use time clocking in system
Interface with Existing System
The Mitrefinch proximity time clock system works without interruption or lost productivity. Built-in redundancies keep the clock moving even without internet connectivity. Data flows seamlessly for every location.
Employees Work Online or Offline
Clocking in systems must work whenever employees need to work. Inclement weather conditions are no barrier to performance. These systems also save information to major payroll services.
Simplified Remote Configuration
Taking advantage of a centralized system that permits configuration from anywhere in the world are an added bonus. Upgrades are managed easily from any type of device.
Easy-to-Use Time Clocking in System
The Mitrefinch proximity time clock gives employees access to look at their clock in and out history. This time and attendance system integrates with most of the larger packages on the market to communicate anytime, anywhere throughout the company.
Web Punch Clock
Rapid technology changes require web punch clocking in systems for centralized PC freedom. Employees clock in and out via the desktop, or with a distributed web login. Either way, they can access the system offsite or from their desk in the office.
Managers have up-to-the-minute reporting access to track what employees do while logged into the web application. To avoid overuse of features at the centralized clock-in point, managers can set parameters that limit functionality.
Mobile Phone Clocking
Time and attendance rests in the palm of employees’ hands with mobile phone clocking in systems. Whether they use company-issued iPhones, Blackberry or Android devices, Advance Systems guarantees the perfect solution.
Whether on the road, at home or at a different work site, employees can track time from anywhere their work takes them. Their information immediately transfers to the main time and attendance system where managers can view, analyze and print the data.
All mobile clocking applications require a Mitrefinch employee self-service license.
USB Fingerprint Reader
Automated workplaces function best with biometric technology and a portable USB fingerprint reader. Companies have confidence in enhanced security when employees access company data online in remote locations.
Special features for fingerprint reader clocking in systems include:
- Reliable biometric authentication – imaging technology that reliably captures biometric data while enhancing company security to prevent theft and fraud
- Faster access to online resources – costly verification protocols vanish with the speed of login authentication
- Seamless business automation – time records and document logins are no longer maintained separately because the sensor identifies individual employees for accurate time records
