Since the invention of the first time clock in 1888, employers have depended on that basic wall mounted hand-punch device to record employee hours and attendance. The old system had its flaws. It couldn't stop “buddy punching,” and there was no getting around the time and cost for the payroll manager to transfer that information. It took almost a century for the next major improvement which was the advent of electronic, computer-based systems that required each employee to have a magnetic stripe card.
But now, MinuteHound has made a leap into the future by introducing biometric technology for time and attendance by using secure fingerprint identification, which eliminates time theft from buddy punching and drastically cuts administrative costs. This online attendance system uses the latest technology to use the power of cloud computing and biometric identification.
A far cry from the old punch card system, MinuteHound's time clock software is cloud based, enabling live reporting from anywhere in the world. Any computer with an internet connection can become a clock-in terminal by plugging the biometric fingerprint scanner into an available USB port, but it can be up to 54 feet from the computer through the use of extension cables, avoiding employees clocking-in at a point-of-sale computer. Employers can set up alerts to receive an email or text message if an employee is late or leaves early from an assigned shift.
It's easy to get started. Just install the plug-and-play software, plug in the scanner, and register employees. It only takes one to two minutes to register an employee. There's no name or pin code required to clock-in. All an employee needs is their fingerprint. The MinuteHound time clock system eliminates fraud and fosters an environment of integrity and accountability. This is especially important in large or remote locations where there is little supervision.
Administratively, the work load is lightened. Hours of payroll review are eliminated because MinuteHound provides detailed time and attendance reports. For businesses with multiple locations, employees that may be requested to work an another location can clock-in at any site with no problem. If a computer crashes or gets stolen, there is no loss of data because it's stored on the server. Upgrades to the system are provided at no additional cost.
MinuteHound has revolutionized and streamlined the time and attendance process for large and small businesses all over the globe.
