New York, NY (PRWEB) March 20, 2014
MinuteHound, the trusted biometric time clock solution for large businesses, is now being released with new software that will benefit small businesses by eliminating time theft, lowering operating and equipment costs, and reducing user error.
The MinuteHound device will attach to the USB port of any computer, transforming it into a virtual time clock; however, instead of requiring employees to insert a card or a series of numbers, the MinuteHound reader uses biometric technology to scan the employee’s fingerprint and automatically log the entry in a spreadsheet. While this device has been used to great benefit in large corporations, the new MinuteHound software creates dramatic potential for small business owners.
The device requires no complex equipment or designated computer for successful operation. Businesses with only a single computer can continue using the computer for other business tasks while simultaneously running MinuteHound software. Because the device only requires a USB port, the initial purchase cost is far more affordable than other biometric solutions currently on the market. This enables small business owners to take advantage of cost-saving accuracy without requiring a large, up-front financial investment.
Small business owners can also benefit from MinuteHound’s real time updates and cloud-based data organization style. When an employee’s fingerprint is scanned, his or her presence is automatically added to a work schedule spreadsheet. This spreadsheet includes the date and time of the check-in or check-out. Small business owners are able to monitor this information, in real time, from any device with an Internet connection. MinuteHound software also includes the option for immediate SMS or e-mail alerts when employees clock in late or clock out early. Numerous marketing and business profitability studies have determined time theft, via the falsification of time card information, to be one of the biggest sources of lost profits for small businesses. The MinuteHound device eliminates this threat.
Small businesses will also benefit from the ease-of-use offered by MinuteHound’s intuitive software. From initial installation to daily operation, using MinuteHound requires very little training and no advanced programming knowledge.
Small businesses utilizing MinuteHound technology can guarantee security and privacy to employees at all times. Fingerprint data is encrypted using the latest 128-bit encryption technology, and data is divided amongst four global servers. This prevents fingerprint data from being reconstructed or leading back to the individual.
By protecting employee privacy as well as the profits, time, resources, and energy of business owners, MinuteHound represents a unique, forward-thinking product that promises to revolutionize the small business world.
