So, what is a biometric timeclock anyway? We’ve all seen movies in which government officials or scientists working for some clandestine organization must scan their face, retina or fingertip to gain entry to their building or laboratory. We imagine these “biometric” measures are taken to preserve the secrecy of sensitive information. But, today's employers are increasingly using biometric technology for their timekeeping system. But why? The answer is simple easy: when biometric timeclocks are used with a time and labor management system, they help employers control cost and minimize compliance risks.
Everyone agrees: paying your employees is an important aspect of running your business; but it can be time consuming, overwhelming and sometimes confusing. One must keep abreast of constantly changing payroll laws, tax rules and employment regulations. Often, you only hear from someone if a mistake has been made. It can be a frustrating, thankless task. Considering the time and effort that goes into manually generating payroll, it’s no wonder many organizations hire a firm to handle payroll services for them.
