Contactless clocking with cards
If you’re looking for a clocking in machine – but a contactless version due to COVID 19 or hygiene reasons, there are a host of options available on the market – but the simplest and often quickest option is RFID.
Radio-frequency identification (RFID) uses electromagnetic fields to automatically identify the item clocked.
With RFID clocking – employees can have zero-touch clocking. They simply walk up to the terminal, hold their RFID enabled card near the unit, and it will automatically clock them. You will hear a beep on the terminal to confirm your clocking.
Not only does RFID mean cross-contamination is 0, but also that high traffic clocking areas are cleared quickly, as employees can pass through without the need to log their biometrics and clean the terminal down.
A Simple clocking solution
RFID is also the easiest method to register employees onto a time and attendance system. Unlike other clocking terminal options which need several fingerprints, face angles or hand scans – with RFID, clocking set-up is as simple as 1,2,3.
- Purchase the RFID cards or fobs which work with your terminal
- Each fob or card will include a unique user number – apply this number to an employee within the system
- Employees can now get clocking – if they lose their RFID card or fob, update their employee number with the new RFID unique reference number.
The uAttend RFID terminal (The CB6500) works with both swipe card/key fob clocking and is Wi-Fi-enabled.
