Time ClocksClocking in and out is an important aspect of employee time tracking and payroll. Gone are the days of punch cards and timesheets. New technology has now introduced modern ways to track employee attendance, allowing companies to manage time by project, eliminate buddy punching and oversee remote employees. Whether you are a small business with 10 on-site employees or a massive corporation with geographically dispersed team members, Future Systems has a time clock solution for you.

Four Types of Time Clocks

There are four common types of time clocks, each with their own unique features and benefits. Read on to determine which time clock is the best fit for your business.

1. Proximity

Proximity Time Clocks use proximity (proxy) cards to quickly clock employees in and out.


2. Web-Based

Web-based time clocks allow your employees to check in online from a desktop or laptop computer. Additionally, companies can limit system access by IP Address.


3. App-Based

A time clock app allows your employees to check in online from any location and any device.


4. Biometric

Biometric time clocks rely on fingerprints or hand measurements to clock in or out.


Which Time Clock Should You Choose?

Overall, time and attendance systems are more accurate than traditional time clocks. However, depending on the size and make-up of your organization, one type of time clock may work better than another. The great thing is that you can actually use as many different clocks as you want on one account because it all flows to the same program!
