How can you sign in 160 employees in less than 5 seconds?

I went to see a company today that had several locations, 2 of the largest with 160 odd employees in each. One of the issues with so many employees and only one or 2 employee time clocks was the speed with which all the employees could sign out at the end of the day. I remember seeing this first hand in a mattress factory for AH Beard maybe 20 years ago now, they no longer make the mattresses in the factory as they are all imported. What happens when employees arrive at work is that that most of the employees arrive between the 30 minutes prior to the actual starting time. So if you had 80 employees arrive between 6:00 am and 6:30 am for a 6:30 start you would get several employees every 30 seconds or so with a bit of a rush in the last few minutes. Some people arrive early and some people arrive just on time or late.

So what happens at the end of a day?

Once the siren goes off to signal end of the day 80 people work immediately to the employee time clock to sign out, when I saw this at AH Beard more than 15 years ago it created an instant line of employees waiting to sign out and the line could take 5-10 minutes for all employees to sign out.

What if you could get rid of your employee lines at the end of the day in less than 5 seconds?

Back 15 years ago iPhone’s and iPad’d did not exist, it does not matter today if you are signing out 80 employees, 150 employees or 500 employees, you can sign them all out in less than 5 seconds by signing in and out your presence on site with a mobile phone….Do you want to reduce your employee lines to sign out at the end of the day?

Do you want to get your staff out of the factory fast at the end of the day?

While we prefer employees to sign in with a smart device you can still sign in and out at a PC

While we prefer employees to sign in with a smart device you can still sign in and out at a PC. Some advantages of employees signing in and out through smart devices for time and attendance include…

How can employees sign in?

iPhone or Android – when employees sign in and out you can capture the GPS position of the employee and place a pin on a map on the employee time sheet.
iPad – when utilising an iPad as a kiosk for groups of employees to sign in and out you can turn on a feature to take a photo of each employee when they sign in and out with the photo going onto the employee time sheet.

As companies become larger in the number of locations the cost of any time and attendance system increases significantly when trying to implement hardware.

With 50 locations hardware costs can vary from $50,000 to $100,000 for biometric hardware including installation and cabling
With 50 locations hardware costs can vary from $25,000 to $50,000 for most other hardware choices like pin number and proximity including installation and cabling

You can completely remove the cost of hardware and give more functionality than a biometric time clock improving company efficiency simply by allowing employees to sign in and out via a PC.

Managers can manage employees, approve leave, build and adjust schedules and much more. Employees can sign in and out, apply for leave, advise future unavailability and more

Watch a very short video on how an employee can sign in at a PC completing removing the costs of hardware.
