About the MinuteHound Time Tracking System
The fingerprint time clock is a far cry from traditional time clocks. These new time clocks are designed to save companies money by reducing payroll processing time and eliminating time theft. The first time clock was invented in 1888 by a jeweler from New York City named Willard Bundy. Although the traditional time clock served its purpose well, it was not without its flaws.
Problems with the Traditional Time Clock
One of the problems with the old traditional time clocks was buddy-punching. This is when one employee, usually a friend, punches in for another employee. This is a type of time theft because the 2nd employee is getting paid for time he wasn’t actually on the job. It is estimated by the American Payroll Association that this type of time theft costs companies over $100 billion a year.
Companies Search for a Solution
The traditional time clock hadn’t changed much until the late 1990s. The first change to the time clock introduced digital timekeeping. Employees would swipe a badge with a magnetic stripe (similar to using a credit card) or bring an RFID tag into proximity to a chip reader to punch in and out. Although this technology saved companies money on payroll, time theft was still an issue, especially with badge-based clocks. Companies wanted a way to cut payroll costs and stop time theft before it became a problem. Thus came the fingerprint time clock.
About the MinuteHound Fingerprint Time Clock
Minutehound developed a fingerprint time clock that uses a small USB scanning device that plugs directly into any computer on site. You don’t need a dedicated computer. MinuteHound’s software is designed to run in the background on any computer. USB extension cables can be purchased from the MinuteHound website. Up to three extension cables can be used, allowing the scanner to be placed up to 54 feet away from the computer. Employees punch in by placing their thumb on the scanner. The scanner uses a proprietary method to convert the image into binary code. The data is then transmitted the data via Internet to a secured cloud server. The server can be accessed from anywhere in the world using a computer or any handheld Wi-Fi device.
Many people are concerned about their privacy, especially with identity theft. MinuteHound’s fingerprint time clock does not keep employee fingerprints on record. Once the data is transmitted to the cloud, it is erased from the local computer. This means identity thieves and corporate spies cannot gain access to your employees’ personal data. The MinuteHound fingerprint time clock software generates reports that automatically calculate time data for you. Got an employee who has problems punching in on time? No problem! The software has a red flag system that allows you to predict and identify many types of time theft. Now you can deal with time theft before it can affect your bottom line.
