Provides New Hand Geometry Biometrics with 20% Smaller Footprint
CARMEL, Ind. - Ingersoll Rand Security Technologies today announced that SwipeClock, a web-based timekeeping solution provider and manufacturer of TimeClock(TM), WebClock(TM), FlexClock® and VoiceClock(TM), has extended its line of timekeeping solutions by adding the Schlage biometric HandPunch GT-400. The new terminal is twenty percent smaller than previous hand geometry units, yet includes a large ATM-style display. It's a sophisticated timekeeping solution that allows organizations to record and verify an employee's punch by the size and shape of their hand in real-time.
The HandPunch GT-400 is extremely user-friendly. The device's platen features a printed hand outline to ensure accurate hand placement while punching. The platen, keypad and function keys are also infused with an antimicrobial agent to reduce bacterial build-up by up to 99.9 percent over a 24-hour period. Further, the terminal's ATM-style interface and large, bright 3.8-inch display allow for efficient, flexible and dynamic data collection. Employees can easily follow prompt information and/or input labor data. There is also a built-in relay for ringing a bell.
For employers, implementing biometrics to automate the collection of time and attendance data can eliminate "buddy punching" (one employee clocking in/out for another), manual data verification and payroll errors, resulting in tremendous savings. Additionally, the HandPunch GT-400 biometric terminal can be configured to meet virtually any networking need or online operation with its standard 10/100 Ethernet connectivity, eliminating the expense of installing new cabling while benefitting from accelerated data processing time.
For more information on time and attendance using the HandPunch terminal, interested parties can go to www.biometrics.schlage.com.
Currently based in the Salt Lake City area of Utah, SwipeClock has been providing timekeeping technology to payroll service providers located primarily in the United States and Canada since 2000. SwipeClock offers employers the ability to track, and more importantly, reduce labor costs. More information is available at www.swipeclock.com.
