CARMEL, Ind. – January 15, 2013 – Ingersoll Rand Security Technologies today announced that SwipeClock, a web-based timekeeping solution provider and manufacturer of TimeClock, WebClock, FlexClock and VoiceClock, has extended its line of timekeeping solutions by adding the Schlage biometric HandPunch GT-400. The new terminal is twenty percent smaller than previous hand geometry units, yet includes a large ATM-style display. It’s a sophisticated timekeeping solution that allows organizations to record and verify an employee’s punch by the size and shape of their hand in real-time.
The HandPunch GT-400 is extremely user-friendly. The device’s platen features a printed hand outline to ensure accurate hand placement while punching. The platen, keypad and function keys are also infused with an antimicrobial agent to reduce bacterial build-up by up to 99.9 percent over a 24-hour period. Further, the terminal’s ATM-style interface and large, bright 3.8-inch display allow for efficient, flexible and dynamic data collection. Employees can easily follow prompt information and/or input labor data. There is also a built-in relay for ringing a bell.
For employers, implementing biometrics to automate the collection of time and attendance data can eliminate “buddy punching” (one employee clocking in/out for another), manual data verification and payroll errors, resulting in tremendous savings. Additionally, the HandPunch GT-400 biometric terminal can be configured to meet virtually any networking need or online operation with its standard 10/100 Ethernet connectivity, eliminating the expense of installing new cabling while benefitting from accelerated data processing time.
