Why Biometrics Are The Future Of Time Reporting
Time reporting has evolved over the years to match the technology available. There were handwritten cards, then cards that required punching, then computer or tablet-based systems. For the most part, employers still rely on one or a combination of these technologies. The trouble is that these technologies are all high on waste. Time gets wasted punching in or out and due to inaccuracies. Materials are wasted, too, as a matter of keeping track of everything.
Biometrics, which rely on technologies such as a fingerprint time clock, help to eliminate all of these problems. As a plus, they also reduce time theft. These are gray areas that aren’t typically severe enough to warrant employee discipline, but they still cost companies thousands of dollars. Thanks to the fingerprint time clock, companies are able get rid of all of the inefficiencies of the old system. Let’s take a look at why.
First, biometrics aren’t really susceptible to fraud. It’s easy for employees using old-fashioned systems to clock one another in or out. All an employee has to do is grab their buddy’s time card and punch it. In an extreme scenario, they might need to memorize an employee ID number. With a fingerprint time clock, this isn’t an option. All of the punches recorded are authentic. These false punches are completely eliminated.
This technology also makes it easier for employees. Punching in or out on a fingerprint time clock only takes a few seconds. Another benefit is that employees are no longer faced with an ethical dilemma if a friend asks them to punch their card for them. This improves employee morale and makes for a more efficient workplace.
Fingerprint Time Clock Is Safe, Secure, and Cost Effective
At first thought, all of this can sound like a costly solution. Many business owners think of a fingerprint time clock and imagine a system that is costly and difficult to implement. This couldn’t be further from the truth. A fingerprint time clock reduces the material waste that comes with traditional systems, but also drastically cuts down the time it takes payroll employees to do their job. With those efficiency gains, the extra gains from eliminating time theft almost become an afterthought.
Thanks to these factors, and the easy plug-and-play convenience of MinuteHound’s time clock system, a fingerprint time clock system is extremely easy to implement. On top of this, there are added perks such as text and email alerts and a U.S. based support team.
If you’re a business owner, this much should be clear – biometrics are the future of time reporting. The fingerprint time clock and other related systems don’t just have the opportunity to save you money – the fact is that they will. Now is the time to take advantage of this new technology.
