The use of fingerprint technology to clock in and clock out at the workplace has gained huge popularity over the last 10 years or so. A fingerprint clocking in machine is usually supplied with time and attendance software to provide payroll information.
In order to clock on, employees are required to place their fingerprint on the scanner. If your fingerprint matches your biometric template the transaction is accepted, however, if it doesn’t match up it will be rejected.
Unlike key fobs or cards, which can be lost or forgotten, fingerprints cannot be transferred and offers many advantages over the more conventional methods. This type of technology is effective and simple to use. It removes any opportunity for fraudulent time claims because each employee unique biometric template is scanned and matched to verify attendance.
Furthermore, the fingerprint clocking in machine incorporates the new and innovate PUSH technology, employee clocking data is transmitted to the server automatically and in real time. This method has established itself as the most reliable and efficient communication method between the time and attendance software and the clocking in machine. Some of the other advantages of this Fingerprint Clocking-In Machine system include:
- High image quality infrared detection fingerprint sensor
- Matching speed less than 0.5 second
- Sleek design
- Optional Wi-Fi communication
- IP enabled ethernet 10/100Mb
- Built in RFID card/fob reader
- Each clocking in machine can store up to 100,000 log records and 3,000 users
- Audible and visual indicator to confirm clocking transaction
- Real time communication with PUSH technology
- Power over Ethernet option available
Even better than that, as there is absolutely zero physical contact between both the card or fob and the reader as well, neither will become worn out by continuous use or are affected by dust or residue from the working environment.
