Austin, TX (PRWEB) September 15, 2008
Legiant, a leading provider of time and attendance software, announced the latest addition to their biometric solutions suite. The HandPunch® GT-400 is based on a completely new technology compared to its predecessor, the HandPunch 3000, and provides a platform for future enhancements. Legiant offers one of the first time and attendance systems to integrate with the HandPunch GT-400 from Schlage®.
The HandPunch GT-400 was designed to provide improved employee self-service functionality along with advanced communications and networking capabilities. A variety of tasks can be completed by employees while they are at the GT-400 station, which include approving their timecards, viewing their schedules, submitting leave requests and checking their sick and vacation accrual balances. The HandPunch biometric device also eliminates buddy-punching and utilizes a BioCote® anti-microbial chassis, platen, keypad and function keys.
After months of extensive testing, Legiant attendance tracking software combined with the GT-400 may set a new bar for employee self-service functionality. According to Rod Crane, CTO of Legiant, "The HandPunch GT-400 will take employee self-service to the next level. The large display screen and customizable soft keys make this biometric unit the most intuitive we have seen. We are proud to be one of the first to offer the HandPunch GT-400 in our industry as it should quickly become the new standard in biometrics for time and attendance."
Legiant Timecard and the HandPunch GT-400 utilize open architecture to simplify integration, speed implementation and allow future upgrades. The GT-400 is one of a variety of biometric, mobile, web and telephone data collection devices available as part of Legiant's time and attendance solutions.
Schlage/Ingersoll Rand is the world's largest supplier of biometric terminals for access control and time and attendance according to research firm Frost and Sullivan. Recognition Systems has been profitable since 1994 and was acquired by Ingersoll Rand in 1999. Schlage is now part of a $10 billion dollar a year corporation. Schlage does not OEM their hand geometry technology from another supplier and they are not dependent upon a third party for support of their terminals.
