MinuteHound assures businesses that the fingerprints themselves are encrypted and broken into separate data packets.

MinuteHound has brought forth an innovative system that will ease the problems inherent with timecard management at remote locations. For example, employees tasked with filling out their own time cards might make errors or punch their buddies' timecards. The home office, because of erroneous projections, might also schedule too many or too few employees at different times. The remote locations could also be hundreds, or even thousands, of miles away from the home office.
MinuteHound's biometric time clock differs from other clocks of the same genre in that it uses an employee's fingerprint as the "clocking in and out" method. No one can clock in for anyone else. Not only does the system immediately eliminate fraud by making each employee beholden to him or herself, it also simplifies complex payroll tasks; there are no pass cards to lose, buggy phone applications upon which to depend, or data to enter incorrectly. A skeleton crew can flawlessly operate the system with a minimum of training.
The plug-and-play system also minimizes the need for expensive information technology or technical support. In addition to the scanner, all one needs is a computer to which the scanner is attached. The cloud-based system stores the timeclock data, which allows managers to see employee movements at their satellite offices in real time. Therefore, managers can effectively study trends and make staffing recommendations and decisions based on sound information instead of guesswork. The system will also keep managers informed by sending texts and/or emails if employees clock out early or arrive late.
To allay security and identity-theft concerns, MinuteHound assures businesses that the fingerprints themselves are encrypted and broken into separate data packets. Then, the system sends them to four servers in different locations. Nothing is stored at the point of use, which makes the system not only secure but nearly foolproof.
A recent study quoted by Forbes Magazine showed that 32 percent of workers in the United States stated they were dissatisfied with their jobs to the point that they'd consider leaving, and another study performed by Automated Data Processing states that any mistakes in the payroll paper trail would result in not only an incorrect paycheck but also a dissatisfied employee. Ahmed Ismail summed it up in his book, "Front Office Operations and Management," by writing "nothing reduces employee satisfaction faster than an incorrect paycheck." MinuteHound claims that, if used properly, its system will remove all ambiguity and increase employee satisfaction.
