Biometric Time Clocks Have Improved Productivity

/ Human Resources

“Punching a clock” has evolved from manually inserting cardstock into a cumbersome machine to what would have once only been described as sci-fi genius. The modernization of the time-clock now includes biometric identification that scans fingertips, palms, and eyes. From facial recognition to a quick read of your skin’s unique patterns, biometrics for both time and labor and security protocols, have proven to be a game-changer for companies.

The investment in better time and attendance systems can save businesses thousands of dollars each year. Yet many are reluctant to introduce these tracking systems for fear of implementation requirements, employee adaptability, and the initial costs associated with innovative time and labor. The benefits however, should far outweigh hesitation.

The ROI of Biometrics
You’re either present, or unaccounted for. On-time or late. This sophisticated technology leaves no room for error or falsification. Co-workers are unable to punch in and out for peers to log hours that aren’t worked. The time-stamp can only be modified by system administrators. The accuracy and precision of biometric time-clocks feeds data directly into your payroll system to ensure that employees are paid only for the time they are on-site. No arguments and no debates. The system doesn’t lie.

Biometric clocks are now used to control spiraling overtime costs as well. With stringent labor laws that require employers to provide additional pay to hourly staff working over 40-hours, coming in early or staying late can result in budget busting overtime wages. Controlling costs are a mainstay of HR responsibilities that can be eased with biometric technology.

Effective customer service and productivity is also in direct correlation with the number of employees present and available to do a job. Therefore, it’s necessary to know exactly who is clocked-in to be held accountable for the work that needs to be done. Managers use the biometric time clock information to gauge performance. If an employee is consistently late or leaving earlier than scheduled, it can have a negative impact on productivity and employee evaluations.
