Biometric Time Clocks

Interesting information on Biometrics culled from the web:

What is important to note is that there are 4 basic Hand Punch readers, and several "me-too" systems available:

Item: Features: Benefit: Notes:
HP1000 50 employees Low Cost Single terminal only, must be near computer
HP2000 512 employees Low cost Single terminal only, must be near computer
HP3000 512 and up. Long Distances RS232, RS485, multiple terminals
HP4000 512 and up higher security All features above, higher security, works with TCP/IP

  • All the above units can be had with a modem for remote location polling.
  • Fingerprint readers cannot be used to match government records; there is no risk.
  • Fingerprint readers are not nearly as reliable and Hand Punch.
  • You can't buddy punch on either system, it's simply impossible.
  • Read on, learn, then please call us.

Biometrics' benefits
Biometric technology is the most secure for an unattended environment, that is, where a third party does not observe each time individuals must authenticate their user identities.

Fingerprint scanning.
As the oldest biometric technology in use, it tends to be more readily accepted by personnel. Unlike the fingerprint taken by the police or military, this is a template of about 25 to 30 points that can be used in a one-to-one authentication of an individual rather than the one-to-many identification used by police The template can't be used to reverse-engineer the individual's full fingerprint. As a result, individual privacy issues are not a concern.

Iris scanning.
This is the most accurate biometric technology. About 250 points are captured to create the template for each person. The iris does not change during an individual's life, which contributes to the accuracy of the method. Although often confused with retina scanning that is shown in popular movies, iris recognition is nowhere near as invasive. During iris scanning, a person positions his eye about 18 in. to 24 in. from the camera, whereas during retina scanning the eye is right against the camera. The technology has proved to be valuable in those areas in which an employee wears gloves, as well as in controlled areas such as a Class I, Div. II environment, where the individual wears full-body protective gear, a hood and, in many cases, safety glasses under the hood. Time America supports Iris scanning; we are a Time America reseller. Currently (2005) the Iris Scanners retail for about $9,000.00

Biometrics has suffered from the perception that it won't work consistently in the harsh environment of a manufacturing facility. This simply is not true. The cost of the technology has raised additional concerns. However, both fingerprint and iris technologies are in their third generation and costs have fallen dramatically. IDC estimates that help desk costs to support password systems now cost $300 per user per year. This approximates the investment for fingerprint technology. Iris cameras cost more than fingerprint readers, making the iris approach more expensive where installation at every desk is necessary. However, in many instances, iris recognition is used in a shared workstation environment or where the required dress makes fingerprint identification difficult or impossible.

Unitime Systems' New Benefits ManagerT Automatically Tracks Employee Paid-Time-Off Benefits

Benefits calculated as part of the company's daily time and attendance tracking

BOULDER CO, February 10, 2005: Unitime Systems, Inc., has launched a new feature for its UNITIME Automated Timekeeping SystemT that automatically calculates and tracks employee paid-time-off benefits as part of the manufacturer's daily time and attendance tracking. Benefits ManagerT tracks vacation, sick leave, personal time and other benefit-hour accruals within the day-to-day workflow of time and attendance, thus ensuring accuracy and allowing administrators to devote time to more productive tasks.

Because Benefits Manager is fully integrated within the latest version of UNITIME, companies can avoid the extra step of importing benefit-hour accruals from separate payroll or human resources programs. They thus avoid "silos" or "islands" of data that must be separately managed and periodically synchronized.

FULLY CUSTOMIZABLE

Companies can customize Benefits Manager to accommodate their unique benefits policies according to types of benefits, employee classifications, time periods and other variables. Benefits Manager will track an unlimited number of benefit types (beyond the standard vacation, paid time off, sick leave, etc.); each benefit type can accommodate separate policies for individual classifications of employees (i.e., full- or part-time). Each policy also can be customized for multiple periods or time frames.

"Calculating and tracking employees' paid-time-off benefits typically is a complicated and time-consuming endeavor," said Doug Peterman, Unitime Systems president. "Benefits Manager dramatically reduces the time that administrators must spend on that process-in essence, giving them additional hours each month that they can devote to more important tasks."
