A biometric punch clock that is used with a scalable and secure Time & Attendance system

In several instances, employees may be required to clock in and out of the workplace multiple times during a working day. Rather than having an administrator maintain an attendance list or employees use a traditional punch clock, DataByte’s solution allows for employees to record their clockings with a biometric punch clock that would verify employee clockings in real-time.

DataByte’s offering into this space consists of a biometric punch clock that supports Face recognition, Finger print and RFID cards together with WorkForce Timekeeper which forms part of a modular, integrated and cloud-based HR suite called DataByte WorkForce.

With DataByte’s Time and Attendance system, an administrator can extract a series of reports in order to ensure that employees are working as many hours as are required. By using additional modules from WorkForce, administration teams can benefit from integration features available with the Payroll and Leave Management modules.

No more outdated punch clocks, transfer your employees’ biometric data to all of your punch clocks

The biggest advantage of biometric devices is that they make time fraud a thing of the past, also with Push Technology on our latest devices, you can sync the employee’s biometric data with any additional biometric devices in your setup. Simply enroll your employees once, without the need of doing so on multiple devices.

GDPR-ready biometric punch clocks

Employees’ biometric data is encrypted on all punch clocks and is stored in a secure format. This means that even in the event that a punch clock is stolen, employees’ biometric data stored on the punch clock cannot be duplicated or used in any way.
