In this podcast, we discuss the advantages of using biometric time clocks, as well as how they function. Key points made are:
Can use any unique feature to associate an individual with entered time.
Hand geometry can be scanned into the system, which can be subsequently verified in one or two seconds.
Fingerprints can be scanned; the hardware is somewhat less expensive.
The fingerprint scanner may not work well in a rugged environment, where dirt or grease can obscure fingerprints.
Useful for eliminating buddy punching, and there is no need for an employee badge.
