MinuteHound time clock software provides small businesses with an alternative to manually tracking employee attendance and hours worked. MinuteHound has acknowledged that small businesses may not have the resources available to larger corporations; therefore they now offer tiered service plans catering to companies of all sizes. By utilizing time clock software for small business, a business is said to save money by reducing employee time theft and by eliminating the need for a large accounting staff. MinuteHound's monthly service charge is based on the number of employees a business has. Plans are available for companies with as few as 20 employees.
MinuteHound's fingerprint scanner based clock in terminal connects to any computer, such as a point of sale system or laptop. The computer need not be dedicated to MinuteHound and may be used with no interruption to any other running programs. USB extension cables allow the fingerprint terminal to operate as far as 54-feet away from the computer.
The system requires little setup, and enrolling each employee takes less than two minutes. The MinuteHound system is unique because it utilizes fingerprint recognition technology to log employees' hours. Originally developed for high security military use, this technique has a stellar record of accuracy. When the system scans an employee's finger the fingerprint is converted and encrypted into a 128-bit number. Once the system recognizes the employee, that number is split among four servers, ensuring the privacy of each employee. This process takes only seconds.
Because MinuteHound is cloud-based, it allows managers to track employee hours in real-time, providing them the data necessary to adjust staffing on the fly. By setting a schedule for each employee in the system, MinuteHound can send text messages and email alerts to employers when irregularities occur. The system does the work of an accounting staff by providing a full report which can be exported to accounting programs, payroll software, payroll processors, etc.
According to the American Payroll Association, $140 billion is lost annually to buddy punching, unapproved overtime, and other schedule exceptions. By maintaining precise records of time and attendance, MinuteHound keeps labor costs down while protecting employers from lawsuits. MinuteHound is impervious to reverse engineering, allowing employers to trust that each clock-in is authentic. The MinuteHound time clock promotes a culture of honesty by immediately alerting managers to employees' schedule deviations.
Over 150,000 users clock-in and clock-out everyday using MinuteHound. Time clock software for small business is affordable, proven to work, and fits any budget. MinuteHound's U.S.A.-based live technical and professional team stand ready to help small business owners get the most out of the software.
