Small Business Owner Blog: Track Employees 24/7

End Employee Time Theft with Biometric Time Clocks

Wherever there are bosses and workers, there will be a need to track employees. Personnel requires vacation and sick hours. Payroll needs hours worked to prepare paychecks. Computer time clocks transformed time reporting, but they allowed for human misuse. Anyone could clock someone else in or out (“buddy punching”). The American Payroll Association (APA) estimates human error or buddy punching costs $148 million every year. Time theft accounts for another 5-10% of annual payroll expenses.

Biometric Time Clocks

Biometric time clocks prevent buddy punching and help track employees in the workplace. Employees are no longer identified by information manually entered in a computer. Employers now track employees using physical features like finger or hand prints or facial, iris, or retinal scans.

Employee Software

The biometric time clock scanner is a mouse-sized device. Employees place one finger on the scanner. In a matter of seconds, the machine identifies the employee and clocks them in or out by date and time. Nothing is manually entered, removing the chance of human error. Since no two people have the same fingerprint, buddy punching is also terminated.

Employer/Manager Software

The reporting software is a complete cloud-based human resources package. All data resides on Internet servers. Managers may track employees 24/7 from computers anywhere in the world. Do you suspect someone is chronically late? Track employees as you drink your morning coffee. If “Joe” is scheduled to clock in by 7:00 am, log in at 7:01 am to see if he has arrived. Joe won’t expect you to track employees from home!

The APA estimates employee theft accounts for 2-8% of annual payroll losses. End time theft with a biometric time clock.
