With GT-400, InfoTronics Provides State-of-the-Art Time Capture, Biometric
Time and Attendance Data Collection and Workforce Management
Carmel, Ind. - Ingersoll Rand Security Technologies, a leading global provider of hand geometry-based Schlage HandPunch biometric terminals for collecting time and attendance information, announced today that InfoTronics (Farmington Hills, Mich.), a long-term partner, is now providing its customers with the new Schlage GT-400 HandPunch readers in addition to the company's other HandPunch models.
InfoTronics Attendance Enterprise is a full-featured time and attendance system that improves employee time tracking, scheduling and reporting for small businesses with ten employees and enterprise companies with tens of thousands of employees across multiple locations. It interfaces with popular payroll and human resources software packages. With the Schlage GT-400 HandPunch reader, InfoTronics resellers and end users can provide increased convenient, accurate workforce management solutions.
"Instead of filling out or punching timecards, InfoTronics users will simply place their hands on the HandPunch, which automatically takes a three-dimensional reading of the size and shape of the hand and verifies the user's identity in less than one second," explains Jennifer Toscano, Ingersoll Rand Security Technologies biometrics marketing manager. "By adding the GT-400, our long-time partner's customers can use the eight programmable soft function keys surrounding the display to create validation tables, multi-level promptings, decision menus and punch reviews that meet their specific requirements. There is also a built-in relay for ringing a bell or locking a door."
The Schlage GT-400 is the first of a new generation of terminals created specifically for time and attendance and workforce management applications. The Schlage GT-400 HandPunch terminal uses the size and shape of each employee's hand for verification, making it fast, efficient and easy to use. With a large LCD screen and programmable soft keys, perfect for interactive workforce management kiosks, the GT-400 HandPunch provides a conduit for employee communication right at the terminal.
"Customers will appreciate the smaller, improved Schlage GT-400 HandPunch terminal," adds Beth Baerman, InfoTronics product manager. "This terminal is the first of the HandPunch line to run the InfoTronics proprietary time clock application. It also provides customers with the best of both worlds - the biometric reliability Schlage is known for and our proven, advanced time clock functionality."
