The MinuteHound Biometric Time Clock – A Marvel of Technology
The employee time clock revolutionized how people tracked payroll information in the workplace. In 1888, a man from New York City invented a time clock that accepted heavy paper cards. When the card would hit a contact, a stamping device would place a timestamp on the card telling employers the date and time the card was punched. Employees would do this upon clocking in, going out to breaks, coming back from breaks and leaving the workplace.
Issues with the Employee Time Clock
However, mechanical time clocks were far from being the perfect solution. Record keeping was a complex process, the clocks had many moving parts that constantly had to be replaced, the clock itself would break down, lost time cards were a common occurrence and the system itself relied on an “honor system” that was constantly abused by employees. Employers around the world were demanding a better employee time clock that was not only less prone to breakdown, but also difficult to manipulate.
MinuteHound’s Biometric Employee Time Clock
MinuteHound began development of a new type of employee time clock that catered to employers’ demands. The company used today’s advanced technology to bring the employee time clock to a whole new level. Minutehound had three goals in mind:
- To combat time theft and buddy punching using biometric scanning technology
- To save employers money by making record keeping as efficient as possible
- To allow for easy data access even if the employer is away on vacation
- To present data in an easy-to-read format
How the MinuteHound Employee Time Clock Works
The MinuteHound employee time clock comes with installation software you can run on any computer in your business. The software runs in the background. Employees place their thumbprint on a small USB device. The scanner comes with a single extension cable and can support up to three extension cables, allowing the scanner to be placed up to 54 feet away from the computer that’s running the software. The employee’s thumbprint data is then converted to raw binary code and transmitted via Internet to a secure cloud server.
The MinuteHound system allows for quick and easy access to stored data for access by your payroll department. Giving access is as easy as creating a username and password for each employee or. You can even control the amount of access the system should give! Best of all, the data can be accessed from anywhere in the world, as long as you have a computer or wireless device with a wireless signal.
Privacy is MinuteHound’s Primary Concern
