HOW DOES THE HANDPUNCH WORK?
Every hand is unique. The HandPunch takes over 90 measurements of the length, width, thickness, and surface area of the hand and four fingers--all in just 1 second. The technology uses a 32,000-pixel CCD digital camera to record the hand's three-dimensional shape from silhouetted images projected within the HandPunch. The HandPunch disregards surface details, such as fingerprints, lines, scars, dirt, as well as fingernails, which may grow or be cut from day to day. Because the HandPunch uses the unique shape of the users hand to verify identity, it can be used in machine shops, factories, manufacturing plants, and almost any industrial environment where fingerprint HandPunch would not work properly. When a person uses the HandPunch, it compares the shape of the user's hand to a template recorded during an enrollment session. If the template and the hand match, the HandPunch records the transaction in its memory for later download by the time & attendance software.
We recommend using the CompuTime101 software to provide time card reports. During enrollment of the employee's hand, which takes approximately 30 seconds, the internal HandPunch processor and software convert the hand image to a 9-byte mathematical template, which is the average of the three readings. The user's template will reside in the clocks internal memory alowing the employee to use the clock even if it is not connected to a computer. Hand geometry still has the highest user acceptance. With the highest level of accuracy and ease of use, the HandPunch remains as the most widely accepted biometric technology in use today.
WHAT IS HAND GEOMETRY BIOMETRICS?
Hand geometry measures the size and shape of a person’s hand, including the length, width, thickness and surface area. When the user places his or her hand on the platen of the HandPunch, the device scans the hand to determine if the profile stored in the system matches the hand on the platen. No fingerprint or palm print is stored in the device. Data is not shared with any outside agencies or companies. Verification takes place in about one second. Unauthorized access is eliminated since credentials cannot be duplicated. Since the “credential” cannot be lost or stolen there is no cost to replace lost, damaged or stolen cards or keys. Hand geometry accurately identifies the user even if his or her hand is dirty, wet or injured, or if the device is damp, dusty or dirty.
WHAT IS BUDDY-PUNCHING?
Do you know what Buddy Punching is? Do you know how much Buddy Punching can cost your company?
"Buddy-Punching" is when a co-worker clocks in or out for another employee. With text messaging and the widespread use of cell phones, it is easy and convenient for an employee to text a co-worker, "hey, can you punch in for me, I'm 15 minutes late. say I went down the hall." The cost of missed labor hours can be very high. Studies have shown that if you have 15 employees receiving pay for merely 4 minutes of "wasted" time per day (untracked breaks, extended lunches, over-approximated punch times, etc) this will total 1380 minutes, which is 23 hours, of additional pay per month. If your average pay rate is $10.00 per hour, then you are paying an extra $230 each month for labor not worked. Add in an estimated employer contribution for FICA and other employer payroll taxes of 10%, and your annual cost for Buddy-Punching is $3,036.
Now, if on top of that each employee is late 20 minutes just one time per month, that is another $660 per year, which brings the total up to $3,696 per year. What happens when your hourly wage is higher than $10 per hour? It's easy to see how costly Buddy-Punching is and what a drain it is on your company's resources.
