When you combine our TimeClock Plus™ software – any version – with biometric verification, the age-old problem of employees clocking each other in, a costly occurrence sometimes referred to in the workplace as "buddy punching" is virtually eliminated. Biometrics provide verification of the identity of each employee performing a clock transaction reducing such time theft normally allowed by the exchange of traditional badges or pin numbers. In other words, your employees will not be happy that they can no longer clock each other in and out.
When an employee is originally added into TimeClock Plus, the system will require an enrollment by an initial fingerprint scan or hand scan. TimeClock Plus will then compare the enrollment to future transactions. So afterward, every time your employee wants to clock in or out, the print taken during each transaction must match in order to complete the operation.
Now before everyone gets all worked up about the finger print or hand scan that TimeClock Plus captures and the idea that the print could be used outside TimeClock Plus – forget it. The “print” is really just a template or mathematical value (measurements performed by the device) that’s used to identify the particular employee. Outside of TimeClock Plus, those numbers mean absolutely nothing.
TimeClock Plus Biometric Fingerprint Terminal Facts
TimeClock Plus Biometric Fingerprint Terminals do not reproduce or capture an employee’s fingerprint. Instead, a numeric template is produced from unique swirls found in the pattern of the finger print. The minutia or swirl pattern files cannot be reverse engineered to re-produce the entire print because information is missing.
The fingerprint biometrics utilized in TimeClock Plus terminals cannot be used or manipulated to gain any personal information about an employee.
There is no stored image or fingerprint on the device or in the host system.
The scan is converted to a numeric template that consists only of a string of numbers.
This information is useful only to the terminal.
