Biometic T & A

Biometric Time & Attendance Systems
Keeping tabs on employees is a time and money consuming task, not to mention the unpleasant side of it. Bigger businesses have it worse as they need to hire additional help to watch over the current roster and that does not add much in the revenue columns of the balance sheets. Mechanical time clocks do their bit and that is all they are capable of doing, a bit. It is child’s play to bypass a simple card punching clock and is no match for the hardened employees who can be quite resourceful when it comes to buddy clocking and time theft. A Biometric attendance system is one such product that can take care of all your time and attendance worries.

How does it work?
Biometric time and attendance systems first came on the scene in early 1990s and were received with great enthusiasm. A biometric attendance system employs certain human traits that are unique to an individual and cannot be duplicated, like the fingerprint. Each employee’s fingerprints are scanned and this data is then stored in the biometric device. When an employee clocks in or out at the UK time clock, his/her fingerprints are matched with the ones in database for identification. As fingerprints are impossible to forge, the employee time and attendance data is recorded accurately and in real time.

Additional benefits
The biometric attendance system has evolved quite a lot with the passage of time and now offers certain additional benefits like employee evaluation or features that are helpful in payroll processing. The fact of the matter is that the biometric systems are now more than just time recording devices. They can create employee productivity reports based on time spent on certain tasks by an individual employee which is very helpful for HR executives.

The Ultimate Time Keeper
Payroll processing used to be a very labor intensive task with paper timesheets and manual card clocking times. Payroll personnel had to manually calculate employee work hours and wages; add benefits, subtract unpaid leaves and so on. In addition to being laborious, the process was prone to errors as any activity that is not automated can be vulnerable to human mistakes. Well not any more, the UK time clock calculates the employee wages with all the fringe benefits and without any mistakes making it invaluable for payroll processing.

Based on the above benefits and features, it is quite justified to call it the ultimate time keeper.
