Biometric time and attendance systems ensure accurate data recording and export to payroll

Biometric Time and Attendance clocking systems

Biometric time and attendance systems can help busy healthcare providers manage their employees in an easier, more streamlined manner, and this is specifically the reason why Solihull Care decided to get such a solution installed at one of their flagship units.

Solihull Care is a leading care-sector provider committed to offering high quality care to older people in Solihull, Birmingham and the surrounding areas. As an industrial and provident society (IPS) with charitable status, Solihull Care operates on a ‘not for profit’ basis and provides a communal benefit to wider society. The choice of services ranges from domiciliary, day care and respite to residential care at the flagship Solihull care home, Swallows Meadow Court.

Swallows Meadow Court employs over 120 staff and payroll administrator Marion Vickers explained the rationale behind the decision to have a biometric time and attendance system installed: “We provide round the clock care so we operate a 24 hour shift system, and obtaining accurate time and attendance data was always a problem with paper-based time sheets. It took us hours every month checking for errors or exaggerated claims, correlate the times with each shift and then manually enter the data for payroll. Even then we couldn’t be certain the data was accurate.”

Biometric time and attendance systems can streamline employee management

Biometric time and attendance systems are the future in the field of workforce management and access control, whether we’re talking about a person gaining access to their physical workplace or to the files stored on their computer. In fact, one could argue that the range of applications for biometric systems is only limited by the product developer’s imagination (and, of course, actual market demand).

The Tensor T32xx Biometric Clocking Unit is the best example of a biometric-based access control/time and attendance solution that covers all the bases, offering a huge array of features and functions that will meet and exceed even the most demanding customer’s requirements.

The IP-enabled all-in-one workstation can be used both for access control and time and attendance purposes, but also adds a host of additional useful features, such as Job Booking, Job Costing, Labour Hours Analysis and Security Management including quality CCTV playback.

Moreover, the Tensor T32xx can also be equipped with GPS auto location, speech output, video and mobile phone support, helping customers increase security and eliminate fraudulent clocking (which, after all, is quite an important reason of concern for most companies out there).

Extra features that add even more value to the Tensor Biometric Clocking Unit include USB Flash Stick & SD/MMC Card Storage support and USB & Network Printer Support, as well as a user friendly, multilingual GUI (Graphical User Interface) and a battery backup + Local Fail-Safe Storage for power communications loss.
