|Biometric time clocks are physical purpose built for time and data collection using the employee’s finger image to quickly identify or verify. Verify is the method of entering a credential via PIN or badge and scan the finger. Identify is the method to scan and identify one against many. Identify databases are limited in comparison to verify.|
|Badge time clocks are physical purpose built for time and data collection using a credential that is a badge or tag. The badge can have a bar code, magnetic strip or RFID chip. Tags typically are RFID chip based. The employee presses a button with IN, OUT, BREAK or Self Service and swipes or presents the credential to the clock.|
|Web-based PC time clocks are general purpose built for using the computer or tablet connected to the main database for emulating the physical time clock functions. Web-Based PC time clocks need to be connected to function. Physical time clocks can run independently of connectivity.|
|IVR Time Clocks use a telephone to dial a number when answered prompts the employee to Clock IN or OUT. Caller ID can be verified to be sure the employee is calling from the location desired.|
