Why choose biometric fingerprint clocking?
Biometric fingerprint clocking is commonplace equipment in your day-to-day life. From phones to banking, access control and more. So clocking employees via the method just makes sense.
We’ll go into the main benefits and reasons, but if you’re looking for an effective solution for employee time tracking – we’ve got you covered.
Time and attendance, clocking-in or absence management can present major challenges for many businesses. From system adoption to getting the right functionality, if you’re looking to track hours it needs to be accurate.
A fingerprint clocking machine can assure this whether you’re looking to save on labour costs or looking to expand and take on more staff.
How does biometric fingerprint clocking work?
Fingerprint clocking works by a machine reading the employee’s unique fingerprint each time they clock in or out.
When the staff member is initially enrolled on the system, their fingerprint is firstly scanned-in which creates a unique code based on the print.
Only the codes stay on the system rather than the fingerprints, avoiding any personal privacy concerns. When clocking in, the system checks if the print matches the stored code.
The advantages of biometric fingerprint clocking :
- Easy setup
Once the machine is up and running, it’s easy to scan-in employees’ fingerprints as a one-off exercise. Several digits can be stored in case of injury.
The fingerprint machines can be hard-wired or wi-fi and are ‘plug and play’ so can you clock from day 1.
- Efficient operation
The machine is easy to operate and can clock in and out, track breaks, transfer departments and more.
Clocking via your employee’s fingerprint, also means there is no risk of forgetting passwords or losing swipe cards or fobs.
This means that clocking in and out is faster and less hassle.
- No time theft
Using biometric clocking means that only the ‘correct’ person can clock in.
No more clocking in for each other, which means businesses are protected from time theft.

How uAttend can help
If you’ve decided on a fingerprint clocking machine then there’s only one thing left to do. Choose your clocking provider.
By this, we mean the software you’ll use to gather insight into your employee’s clocking times.
Yes, you can use apps to simply track time. But that’s like making a cake and not icing it. You’ll have access to a world of labour data – why not automate insights?
uAttend offers customers a choice of ways to clock in, including web, phone, smartphone, biometric and RFID clocking machines.
The data from the machines is sent directly to your uAttend cloud account and turned into insights in real-time.
Not only will you be able to see who’s in or out, but you’ll be able to pull reports on absence, department costs, payroll data and more.
Reasons why you should update your time and attendance system
- Old methods become outdated
Keeping paper records can be cumbersome and inaccuracies could creep in. Spreadsheets kept on local PCs can also be time-consuming to maintain and only accessible in the office.
Manual reconciliation of timesheets presents a frequent headache for managers.
- Need to track staff on variable contracts
Tracking employees on part-time or flexible working contracts can be difficult when they are starting and finishing at different times.
Digitally capturing that data, directly from the clocking source ensures you know who, when and where.
