Biometric Time Clocks (#40)

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.

  • In either case, following verification, the employee can enter his or her time, or access other payroll information.

  • 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.
