With our online employee scheduling and time clock features, time keeping is easier, safer, and more secure than ever. TimeForge is all about providing whatever solutions work best for your business. This is why our labor management software offers so many different features and settings, including a variety of methods for your hourly employees to clock in and out for their work shifts. One of these methods is with an integrated hardware time clock that tracks employee time and attendance. 

Our biometric time clock uses a fingerprint verify identity. A major advantage of using the biometric time clock is preventing time theft and buddy punching, while still being simple for anyone to use and compatible with all of the great features of TimeForge Attendance. The time clock also features contactless clock ins and other options that make it work for you.

Secure fingerprint scanning, contactless clock ins, and more.

With TimeForge biometric time clocks...

Cut down on buddy punching and time theft

Our biometric time clocks are faster and more secure than traditional methods for clocking in and out. We realize that time theft and “buddy punching” can be major issues for many industries with hourly employees. (Buddy punching is when one staff member clocks in for another.) These practices cut into a business’s bottom line, and they’re unfair to everyone involved.

Most people don’t steal time on purpose, but biometric clock ins prevent small slip ups from adding up into big issues. Because the time clock requires a fingerprint to verify the identity of whoever is using it, you can be certain that your team members are at work when they’re clocked in. This means that buddy punching doesn’t happen, and time theft isn’t going to be a problem. 

Add new fingerprints in seconds

It might sound complicated, but the time clock is pretty easy to set up and even easier to use. The process of adding an employee’s fingerprint to the scanner is quite simple. It doesn’t require any extra equipment besides the time clock, and it only takes a few moments to complete. Three scans is all it takes to enroll a new fingerprint.

Once a fingerprint has been added to the system, have your employee test it out to be sure everything works properly. After everyone is up and running in the time clock, clocking in and out will be quicker and simpler than ever. You’ll be able to track employee time with ease.

Enjoy seamless integration with TimeForge

Our online employee scheduling and time clock features are designed to work together for you. The biometric time clock is fully integrated with the TimeForge system, meaning it’s compatible with all the settings and features that help your business work its best. This includes our scheduling enforcement and automated compliance features.

In addition to biometric fingerprint scanning and no-contact options, our time clocks also support the option to clock in and out with a PIN or password. For added security, the time clock can be set so that a user must enter their PIN or password before scanning their fingerprint in order to sign into the time clock.

Protect your employees with contactless options

If your business could benefit from using a hardware time clock but you don’t like the sound of asking your employees to share a fingerprint scanner while you’re trying to protect their health, don’t worry. Our timeclocks also support no-contact options. 

Providing a contact free way for your employees to clock in and out for their shifts reduces the spread of COVID-19 and other illnesses. Watching out for your employees not only helps keep them safe and happy, it also protects your customers and saves your business costs on sick leave. It’s a win-win! 

Take advantage of powerful schedule enforcement

Schedule enforcement is an important time tracking tool used by many TimeForge clients. It allows you to set a grace period during which an employee is able clock in or out. The grace period is relative to when their shift begins and ends. If an employee tries to clock in or out outside their specified grace period, they’ll have to get help from a manager. This prevents employees from riding the clock and gives managers the chance to address tardiness on the spot. 

TimeForge’s schedule enforcement features are even more effective when combined with biometric ID. With this duo, you have more control over when your employees start and end their shifts. It also supports other settings that assist in staying compliant, including break enforcement and new temperature tracking features.

Take breaks, confirm shifts, and more

Our time clocks are more than just a clocking app for tracking time spent or keeping employee hours. Employees can also perform actions such as take breaks, view their work schedule, and check their attendance sheet. This way, they won’t need to sign into TimeForge on a computer or mobile app each time they need something. 

We realize that businesses often have employees who work in multiple departments or positions. When necessary, our time clocks prompt employees to confirm which shift or department they’re clocking in for. This ensures that employees are paid the correct pay rate for the job they do.
