New York, NY (PRWEB) August 22, 2013 -- MinuteHound, an innovative cloud-based biometric timekeeping solution, adds another "plus" to IT integrator cloud migrations as it replaces legacy paper and manual time clock systems for a total migration picture. Low cost and low maintenance, MinuteHound adds features but not liabilities.
Laying out a customer's migration to cloud-based computing resources, integrators want to present a total solution, without legacy systems and other "asterisks" on the functional diagram. MinuteHound brings the timekeeping and payroll functions on board with a cloud-based system which is simple to install and easy to support, costing only pennies per day per employee to operate. It can be one of the most visible changes in the cloud migration, in addition to saving up to eight percent in payroll.
Supported by geographically diverse, redundant servers and storage maintained and upgraded by MinuteHound IT, the only requirements for customer use are purchase of one or more $99 USB fingerprint scanners which install and operate in the background on an Internet-connected PC from desktop to laptop or thin client. Installation is quick and easy, with MinuteHound providing direct telephone support if needed.
Accumulated time and attendance data is recorded in simple and secure records containing a one-way encoded fingerprint key and Internet-based timestamp. Server software provides Web-based access to data in aggregate or individual form through a drill-down interface as well as programmed alerts at the workforce or individual level, tracking manpower availability and employee tardiness as needed.
Businesses using MinuteHound range from professional offices such as dental or legal practices to small manufacturing, multi-site, even global operations. MinuteHound scales as needed, with affordable pricing at any level. For businesses migrating to the cloud, MinuteHound is ready to match as they take advantage of the on-demand resources which the cloud offers.
For IT integrators, MinuteHound represents an opportunity to modernize one of the most visible and often neglected parts of company daily operations, the clocking in and out of hourly employees. From paper time cards involving corrections, errors, and occasional inaccuracies resulting from time clock errors or "buddy punching," or the hassle and similar issues of electronic time clocks, employees will simply scan a finger and continue to their jobs. MinuteHound's patented one-way fingerprint encryption method and redundant storage means data and employee privacy are protected.
In the payroll department, not only will the company save significant time by not having to regularly verify and correct data thanks to MinuteHound's highly accurate scanning, but data is available for download in a variety of formats. It's ready to integrate with most online and corporate payroll systems. Even before payroll is run, managers will have aggregate and individual time data in real time, accessible over the Internet from anywhere in the world.
During business system cloud migrations, IT integrators can bring timekeeping into the 21st century by adding MinuteHound biometric cloud-based services. At low cost to customers and no support burden to the integrator, MinuteHound offers payroll integration opportunities, operations cost savings for the customer, and a highly visible customer experience improvement.
