Biometric Time and Attendance System Deployed for Commuter Rail Employees

T3204BK Biometric Time & Attendance station

A new biometric time and attendance system will ensure a more accurate record of hours worked by employees at a commuter rail service that operates across the Greater Boston area of the United States.

Keolis Commuter Services operates and maintains the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority’s commuter rail system, carrying more than 127,000 passengers daily throughout Greater Boston.

The need to replace the old time clock system grew out of a request from managers to find a better solution that would allow them to spend less time adjusting hours-worked records, a company representative has revealed.

The old system using swiped badges was so inaccurate managers were spending up to 10 hours a week adjusting time cards.
“That’s a whole workday during the week just adjusting payroll”. “That’s 10 hours that they’re not walking the shop floor, looking at quality, working with the employees and everything else.”, company representatives argued.

The new biometric time clock will not only free up managers, but will give an accurate accounting of who is in the building in the event of a fire or other emergency.
