When a company or organization that employs a lot of people who need to keep track of employee attendance, check-in and check-out, nothing works better than a time clock system. Clock time, when introduced to the market as a commercial product, is a mechanical device used to punch cards.
Because the demand for time-clock such as attendance and time-keeping devices grew, the system becomes more advanced. Electronic time-clock replaced the old mechanical ones. Cards with magnetic stripes and biometric attendance device started being their use. Soon after this, proximity cards and swipe-cards began to be used.
Although this system works very well, it is possible for employees to punch cards. As organizations begin to look for a more advanced system and fool-proof, a breakthrough in the field of biometrics pave the way for a new generation of timekeeping and attendance device.
Biometric time clock immediately started selling like hot cakes in the market, and most organizations begin to make use of them. With the built-in memory to store large amounts of data (check-in and check-out time, day, date, ID number of employees, etc.) and a variety of other features, including provisions for the use of the security code, biometric time clock is a device that is very required.
Today, biometric time and attendance recording devices are used almost everywhere, not only because they are fool-proof, but also because of their application as a security device.
