How Does a Fingerprint Time Clock Work?

What is a Fingerprint Time Clock?
Fingerprint Time Clocks are a type of time and attendance management system that allows you to replace your manual payroll process and quickly, easily and accurately track your employees work hours. Our Aussie Time Sheets Fingerprint Time Clock requires employees to simply place their finger on the sensor, which will record their details and the data and time quickly and accurately. This data is then retrieved by the Aussie Time Sheets software, which automatically calculates the employee’s work hours and any relevant overtime or accrued leave.
Fingerprint Time Clocks are ideal for any business who may be concerned with employees’ buddy punching, which is when one employee clocks on or off for another.
How Does a Fingerprint Time Clock Work?
Our ATS Fingerprint Time Clock uses the highest fingerprint technology, called ‘Optical Image Capture’ technology. This type of fingerprint technology is considered the gold standard for capturing the highest quality fingerprint images, often used by the government or other mission-critical organisations. The Fingerprint Time Clock analyses the fingerprint image in order to determine the location of the fingerprint core, the pattern type and estimates the quality of the ridgelines. The internal computer then compares this image to the one stored and confirm or rejects the identity of the user. This means that even if the fingerprint is dirty or wet, the Fingerprint Time Clock is still able to identify the fingerprint as it only needs to examine a small area in order to authenticate the user.
What are the benefits of a Fingerprint Time Clock?
There are many benefits of implementing a Fingerprint Time Clock in your business, here are some of the main benefits:
  • Eliminates the risk of time theft and buddy punching: Businesses can not only save money by reducing fraudulent employee activity but also may say an increase in revenue as a result of increased productivity.

  • Eliminates error: Fingerprint Time Clocks replace manual calculations and hand-written timesheets, which can be costly in both administration time but also to fix errors. These systems ensure employees are paid correctly for the hours worked and employers are only paying for correct hours worked.

  • Saves you time and money: By implementing a Fingerprint Time Clock you will free up precious hours spent chasing timesheets, authorizing leave and overtime and manually processing timesheets and payroll. Fingerprint Time Clocks can also save your business a lot of money by not only reducing the number of administration hours required but also eliminating inaccurate time reporting, tardiness, time abuse or buddy punching.

  • Integrates directly with your payroll: Aussie Time Sheets Fingerprint Time Clocks can integrate directly with your existing payroll software systems, again streamlining your processes and saving you precious time.
