Proximity time clocks record an employee’s attendance from a short distance. Clocking-in with these systems is easy- the employees would just need to wave from a distance in front of the proximity time clock. This contact-less verification not only allows the employees to clock on or off without touching, it also ensures that the time clock system works well for a longer time without getting it serviced.
As compared to other systems, a proximity time clock usually costs less considering the low frequency of required servicing and replacement of cards. The way Proximity Time Clock works is different from other cloud-based solutions. After the contact-less record of time and data, it is downloaded periodically to either a cloud-based software or an on-site solution. You are able to edit and update this information, to finally export the data to the Payroll software, and/or to the management depending on the insights you gather.
