MinuteHound Releases New Time Clock Software Update Featuring Increased Read Rate
New time clock software features updated algorithms to increase read rate and accuracy.
New York, NY (PRWEB) June 18, 2013
MinuteHound, ever attentive to customer needs, has recognized that many locations where its time and attendance software is used have large numbers of employees arriving at the same time. With their new software update which increases the fingerprint read rate, MinuteHound can handle more employees performing the simple scan-in and scan-out in a shorter period of time.
MinuteHound’s timekeeping solution uses an inexpensive employee time clock, or fingerprint scanner which, with an existing host computer, is the only hardware required to implement their fully featured solution for workplace attendance tracking. Employees simply scan their fingers and the fingerprint is encoded into a single large number, then sent to MinuteHound servers along with an Internet-based timestamp to record the event. This results in highly accurate timekeeping.
The number of fingerprint scanners in use is not limited, but now with MinuteHound’s updated software each device will be able to handle a faster flow of employees during peak hours. Compared to time card use or electronic sign-in and sign-out using a keypad, this will result in even more time savings and convenience. It will also continue to eliminate the problems of these other methods that result in unintentional errors or records based on swipe cards or codes used by the wrong employee for various reasons.
MinuteHound’s system operates “in the cloud”, and provides a wide variety of features and services for companies using the fingerprint scanner. Data is stored in multiple secure locations and made available in compiled reports for downloading, but it is also used to provide user-specified alerts and interactive, drill-down reports that can be used to monitor workplace staffing levels in real time.
Keeping up to date with employee attendance helps keep management aware of potential problems in productivity, even if the company has many locations around the world. A small retail store owner even while traveling can tell if he’s short-staffed by using alerts.
MinuteHound’s clock-in clock-out system, now even more efficient and quick to use for workers, costs only pennies per day per worker. It identifies each worker by fingerprint without compromising employee privacy, since it doesn’t store an actual fingerprint, just a number “key” which will uniquely match each scan by that one worker. The goal is to make time and attendance a small part of the work day unless problems arise. Then, reliable records and reports help handle personnel issues clearly and directly.
MinuteHound’s system, based in the cloud with multiple server locations and backup, is leading edge, reliable, and now faster and more effective at keeping companies on target.
