Keeping Track of Employee Time Has Never Been Easier

Share Article

Time clocks are used by many businesses and organizations to help keep track of time. Time clocks guarantee, thanks to built-in security features, that the time stamped on a card or other document is correct. These devices are easy to set up, transport and use.

Time clocks are ideal for use with employee time attendance. Unfortunately employers cannot always rely on their employees to be honest. The “honor system” and hand written time cards can be easily manipulated and employers can be cheated out of thousands of dollars. It is also legally wise to use a time clock, as you can prove what hours have and have not been worked.

There are a wide variety of time clocks to choose from. Over the years, time clocks have been designed so they can be placed on a countertop or mounted to a wall. Many time clocks even add the time worked, making payroll calculations easier. A new addition to the time clock family is time recording software that can be installed on a personal computer. Time recording software allows your employees to clock in through a computer. The time is automatically added up and it is easy for employees to clock in and out.

Digital electronic time clocks are the newest style of time clock available on the market. These time clocks are slowly replacing the traditional punch-style time clock. Digital time clocks store clock in and out times electronically, in the machine. Many digital clocks keep a running total of time worked and help calculate hours worked for payroll. Some have a touch pad device that allows you to punch in a code and clock in or out. Other digital time clocks can be interfaced with a computer or a printer for larger organizations.

Some newer time systems also have the ability to use a magnetic stripe, like you see on a credit card. Many employers will put this magnetic strip directly onto a photo ID card that can be used to clock in and out. This data is stored in the device and can provide you with exact details on time worked. Some of these devices can be interfaced with a computer or printer. Security features built into digital time clocks prevent any kid of manipulation or abuse of time worked.
