What is an employee time clock?
An employee time clock is a device which enables employees to clock on and off for work to record their work time, which eliminates the employee just writing down the time. The time clock will record the exact time the employee uses the clock to the exact minute. The clocks are also known as ‘Bundy Clocks’, ‘Time Recorders’ or ‘Punch Clocks’ and were invented by Harold Bundy who became part of IBM. They have been around for some time and have been developed from manual clocks that punch holes in a card to an electronic printing clocks stamping the date and time, to the current range of biometric clocks enabling fingerprint or facial recognition technology.
