Clocking Systems Can Provide Valuable Evidence

Who’s Supervising The Supervisers. Clocking Systems Can Provide Valuable Evidence Of Time Theft, Even When Its A Trusted Senior Employee.

No matter how well you think you know your employees, they may not turn out to be as trustworthy as you’d hoped.  A clocking system is a supervisers manager 24/7 and one that does not require a big salary either, and it will never collude with unfaithful employees to steal time from your Company.

shutterstock_67720723STAMFORD — Police arrested a long-time schools custodian for leaving his post while he was clocked in at work earlier this year.

Andrew Shavers, 65, of 1 Southfield Ave., was charged with second-degree larceny for defrauding a public entity, and was released after posting a $15,000 court appearance bond. He is scheduled to be arraigned on the charges at the Stamford courthouse Aug. 15.

Police declined to comment on the case, saying that the city’s law department put a “gag order” on releasing any particulars of the case.

The mayor’s office had scheduled a press conference for Thursday afternoon “to discuss two independent, serious personnel issues,” but later postponed the meeting indefinitely. Details of the second personnel issue have not yet been released.

Shavers, is a 42-year city employee at the top of his pay scale and has an annual base salary of $65,000. He took in $91,000 with overtime and other benefits last year.

Shavers vehemently denied the charge, saying that someone is trying to get rid of him.

He said police explained after picking him up at work at  Rippowam Middle School

Thursday morning that someone at city hall requested that police follow him around in an undercover car.

He was told that one day in May police followed him to a podiatrist’s appointment, another appointment and a liquor store, while he was supposed to be working and had clocked in.

timegenius ltdSummary: This just goes to show how invaluable  clocking systems can be, if you need to gather evidence to prove fraud against an employee of your Company. This is a sad story but should come as no surprise as people will unfortunately bite the hand that feeds them, loyalty is a fast disappearing quality.

Fingerprint time clock systems down under

Fingerprint Time Clock Systems Are On The Up Down Under.

Our Aussie cousins have found that payroll preparation is time consuming and errors cause unhappy employees, or costly loss for the employer. Fingerprint time clock systems will ensure accuracy and speed on payroll day.

Brisbane, QLD, Australia (PRWEB) July 08, 2013

shutterstock_22536877Aussie Time Clocks, the leading provider of Fingertec time management software in the Australia, has released the enhanced version of Fingertec’s time clock systems to provide support and integration capabilities with leading payroll processing systems such as MYOB®, MYOB EXO®, Unipay®, Attache® and ePayroll® along with other prominent payroll processing service providers.

It can be a daunting task for small and medium sized businesses to process their payroll manually. Dealing with large amounts of employee time and attendance data and compiling it into a format that can be used later for processing payroll is no easy task if done manually. Even after the employee hours data has been compiled, the payroll personnel has to manually calculate employee wages with each employee having a different pay scale making the whole process highly time consuming.

Dealing with payroll is a recurring requirement as the task has to be repeated at each pay-cycle. Businesses employing more than 10 employees can have rather tough time preparing an accurate and timely payroll as hourly employees can have varying degrees of pay-grad and overtime structure.

In addition to being a tedious and labour-intensive task, the whole process is fraught with human error resulting in overpayment or employee complaining about being shortchanged. Australian businesses now have the ability to do away with manual processing of employee payroll thanks to the export and integration capabilities offered by Fingertec timesheet software.

The newly introduced integration capabilities can help Australian small and medium sized businesses save valuable time and resources that were otherwise required for processing their payroll manually. The automation and the resultant elimination of human error can help reduce dependence on human capital, streamline the whole payroll management process, and save loads of revenues for local businesses.

MYOB®, along with Unipay®, Attache® and ePayroll®, are some of the most commonly used payroll processing systems in Australian workplaces. MYOB® provides a timesheet feature in its payroll system where the users can import timesheets in a number of formats. The tedious job of payroll now becomes a walk in the park by exporting pre-calculated timesheets from Fingertec time attendance clock system into the MYOB® Timesheet Export File doing away with all the manual data entry. Originally from : http://www.prweb.com/releases/2013/7/prweb10892995.htm.

Summary: Manual calculation of employee time and attendance hours can be improved, and the introduction of fingerprint time clock systems has proven through use over time, to provide results beyond most peoples expectations.

Clock In Software In The Cloud

Yet Another Cloud Based Clock In Software Product Hits Our Screens

Do the people who believe this is the future of clock in software have their head in the clouds, or is it really as good as they say.

Salt Lake City, UT (PRWEB) July 03, 2013

shutterstock_80333083Captain Clock launched its new time tracking app and clock in software this year to help a staggering number of small businesses that are still supporting the Dunder Mifflin’s of the world. In a climate where cloud technology, bring your own device and “work anywhere” have become the norm, many small businesses still cling to manual, paper-based processes.

To date, the Microsoft Office template library contains over 20 unique templates of printable employee timesheet forms. And, even as late as October 2012, we see sophisticated institutions like UC Berkley finally announcing its move to an automated timekeeping system. Web-based time tracking solutions like Captain Clock simplify employee management, allowing employees to log time accurately from anywhere via laptop, desktop or mobile device. Time-restricted business owners and managers can set up employee schedules and export payroll reports in mere seconds.

“Captain Clock makes things easier. Each time they login in, employers land on a simple dashboard that gives them a snapshot of employee productivity. In an instant, they can know how many hours have been worked vs. scheduled, who’s been late recently, and if there are any pending time-off requests to deal with,” explained Andrew Miller, social media manager for Captain Clock.

There continue to be roadblocks to technology adoption, including price, user appeal and ease-of-use, but the increasingly rapid adoption of web marketing technologies by businesses of all sizes shows that adoption rates are slimming up.


We live in a web-based world, and in one form or another nearly all businesses have adopted mobile and cloud-related technology. It’s gotten to the point where employees are tweeting in commute for their employer—it only makes sense that they should log their hours from the same device,” says Miller.

Clocking Systems and Biometrics

Clocking Systems And Biometrics Are Made For Each Other – This Technology Is Tailor Made For The Monitoring Of Employee Attendance At Work

timegenius ltdEmployee time theft is a problem that can go unseen. Everyone knows it goes on, but how to stop it. Well one Company is aiming to bring a solution to the table. One that will benefit the employee as well as the employer, clocking systems may never be the same.

Amherst, New York (PRWEB) May 07, 2013

ENTERTECH SYSTEMS (http://www.entertechsystems.com ) is exhibiting the next generation of time and attendance biometric clocking systems and modules with Suprema (http://www.supremainc.com) at the 31st Annual APA Congress today, from May 7 to 11 at the Gaylord Texan Hotel and Convention Center in Grapevine, Texas in booth #516. The company will be showcasing “one touch” time and attendance systems that stop buddy punching and employee time theft – demonstrating to businesses at the show how they can protect their bottom line throughout their organization and across their multiple locations.

clocking systemsCommon ways that employee time theft is committed occurs through buddy punching – the practice of employees entering or stamping time cards, punch cards or passwords on behalf of another employee.

Time theft could also be committed, intentionally or unintentionally, through employee late arrivals or through lax tracking of sick and vacation days.

Traditional punch card clocking systems and even attendance sheets rely on the honor system of each and every employee adhering to the rules set out by management. With a biometric clocking system, only verified time that is tied to the true identity of the employee is recorded for administration and integrated for payroll processing.

“Biometric fingerprint and face recognition are at the cutting edge of the most accurate ways to collect employee time and attendance information as they are uniquely linked to each employee and cannot be shared, lost or stolen,” said Rob Douglas, CEO of ENTERTECH SYSTEMS. “With ENTERTECH SYSTEMS, businesses can now easily track employees’ time and attendance with just the touch of a finger through the number one algorithm in the market.”

Summary…

I’m really excited about this new offering from Entertech Systems, the rate at which clocking systems and biometrics have merged and complimented each other in the past few years has recharged the time and attendance systems industry, and put it back on the menu as a reliable option to ensure employees are paid fairly for their time.
