This Rota function gives you the power to create complex day plans or detailed weekly views. Specify the shift, the department and the employee. Pro & Enterprise only. (Automatic employee alerts are also available to signal when they are scheduled to work with the use of scripting).

Our range of market leading biometric fingerprint scanner operates by reading an individuals fingerprint and can be combined with a Pin or Fob. Once the finger is verified a date and time stamp is recorded. As all fingerprints are stored as a mathematical algorithm there is no chance that a fingerprint can be replicated, this ensures that our finger biometric terminals remains GDPR compliant and eliminate any one employee clocking for another.
For all details and specifications relating to our biometric fingerprint terminal, please check out the brochure below.
The most durable biometric unit to date, the Hand-Punch 3000e is a robust, reliable and secure biometric attendance terminal. Ideally suited to environments that have higher levels of dust, dirt and debris but where biometric is still preferred. Both quick and easy to use the clocking In/OUT process is completed in seconds. The Hand-Punch works by measuring the contour of the individuals hand as opposed to any fingerprint biometric.

FAB (Focus Attendance Board) operates via an internal URL link and can be displayed on a Smart TV, via Monitors, Tablets or mobile phones. The FAB will monitor departments and shifts that fall below expected levels. These levels are colour coded similar to the red, amber and green alerts within the workflow module. The FAB allows supervisors to quickly establish which department or shift has which workers present. This can be helpful to identify which areas may require additional resources. Beyond showing Who's IN, the FAB can also highlight the status of all employees who are clocked OUT of the business (incl; absence and holidays) and include a live count to help maintain maximum productivity.
