Time Clock by MinuteHound™ How To?


The Time Clock becomes any computer’s clock-in terminal. Once the MinuteHound™ solution (biometric fingerprint scanner or any other of our devices) is connected to a computer with an Internet connection – it becomes that location’s clock-in terminal!

Large & small businesses alike love that the MinuteHound™ Time Clock does not require a dedicated computer. This allows the use of the computer as usual without even noticing that the MinuteHound™ Time Clock Software is running in the background. For example, it could be installed on a computer running a point of sale system, a back room inventory computer, an office machine, or any other computer at your branch.

Upon installing the time clock and enrolling the employees, MinuteHound™ is ready to be used. You can order up to 3 USB extension cables per device, so the time clock can be up to 54 feet from the computer.

To clock-in and clock-out, an employee simply places their finger on the MinuteHound™ fingerprint scanner. Through a patented process the fingerprint is converted into an encrypted 128-bit number that is then fragmented into 4 secure servers on different continents across the globe.

Because the fingerprint is never stored unlike a traditional biometric time clock it cannot be reverse engineered (traced back to a single person), the employees’ privacy cannot be compromised. Information about the real working hours of employees can be viewed at any location in real time using a computer’s web browser or even from an Internet enabled mobile device. A designated manager may elect to receive email alerts of exceptions to employee schedules. When it’s time to process payroll, MinuteHound™ presents reports that provide detailed time and attendance information. Since there are no time cards to reconcile and calculate hours of tedious accounting labor can be saved every pay period! MinuteHound™ data may be exported to allow import into accounting systems commonly used by large companies.
