Updates to MTX-30 and new AFR clocks.. 

TimeGuardian 6.0 will work on Server 2012 (factory brochure says 2016) and newer.  
You can continue to use your older clocks with this software, and the newer ones.

Holds punches when the network is off.
The clock will hold the punch records in the clock until a positive connection is made to the connected computer.  If the network is down, they will still work normally and capture the punches.

Work Shift Bells - if you have that set up: The bell system plug is the same, just replace the clock and the connections.

Lastly, all pre-purchased modules will transfer over to the new software, and employee records all transfer across to the new software. You should call Amano when you are ready to install this, to do it right, with the least amount of effort.

Amano MTX-30 information you will not find anywhere else

Hardware:    The biometic reader has a capacity of 1000 fingerprints per machine.
                   If a person's finger cannot be read on a given day, that person can try again
                   and this time use their 3 or 4 (go with 4) digit ID number, the place the finger.
                   Fingers get scratched, damaged, grubby, calloused and causing
                   reading problems.

                   Unlimited fingerprints.  But when you get above 50 people,
                   you start to have long lines. It costs you money when employees stand still.
                   That's when you should consider adding more clock terminals.
                   Employees can be assigned to more than one clock
                   Can be on the same network as Amano WiFi clocks
                   USB thumb drive ready.  Add employees, collect data, via portable drive.

Employees can be assigned to multiple clock terminals.  Punch IN and OUT on one, or all of them, you set this up in the employee file.

TimeGuardian Software.  Adding additional managers:
All TimeGuardian systems come with two managers, aka two "system administrators."
When you upgrade to 5 (the first upgrade, which is a TOTAL of 5) users/administrators, you get the ability to assign unique usernames and passwords to the manager, and also assign what they can - and cannot - do.  Each upgrade adds $50 to the annual support, (excluding employee number upgrades and additional clocks.)

For example, you would not want the Parts Manager to have the ability to change the punches for people in the Administrative department, or to change the pay cycle.  But you might want him to be able to correct punches for employees in the Parts department. On the other hand, the payroll manager would have access to everything., and the company owner might only have access to making and reading reports.

TimeGuardian Software.  Adding additional employees:
TimeGuardian starts with 100 employees.  If you purchase + 25 employees, you then have a license for 125 ACTIVE employees.  If you purchase a 250 employee upgrade, you then have a license for 350 ACTIVE employees.

TimeGuardian Technical Support:
If you go above 2, support increases by $50
If you go above 5, support increases by $100
If you go above 10, support increases by $250
If you add a module, like Custom Meals, support increases by $50

In this industry, where a few of us have over 25 years of direct experience, the rule of thumb is this: 
If you have over 50 employees, save several labor hours a month by adding a second time clock.  If a clock goes down, you can always have them use the other one until it's repaired or replaced.  You also save expensive labor time by not having people stand in lines to punch in and out.

Click HERE to see all the optional upgrades, including Paid Breaks.

Upgrade "Advanced Meals" controls, among other things, Paid Breaks.

If employees are taking too long, like 12 to 15 minutes on paid breaks, you don't have to pay them.
Click here to see it:  Paid Breaks, aka TGN-ADVMEAL

How it works: 
When an employee stops work for their paid break, they press F1 on the display,
then waive their badge (or keyfob).When they come back, they simply waive their badge again.

You can set the length of the paid break.  In this example, 10 minutes, twice a day.  
    10 x 2 x 5 days in a week, 100 minutes paid break.
    Lets say they take 12 and 10 on Monday.  That's 22, when it should be 20. 
    Tuesday:  8 and 10.  Wednesday 12 and 15.
    Thursday: 13 and 11.  Friday 9 and 15. 
Add it up.  112 minutes.  They are paid for 100, that's the deal.
TimeGuardian ADVMEAL docks them 12 minutes. $5.00/week, saved.

Imagine you have only 10 employees, you save 10 minutes each
per week for excessive break time.  It's all on paper.
You pay them $25 per hour with taxes, etc. 
Each minute costs you 41cents, per person at $25 per hour.
10 minutes a day recovered, $4.50 every day.  1 week: 22.50 per employee. 
Savings:  $225. per week for just 10 employees, and it goes on for years.
It's easy to justify the cost of this module.
