We have certainly come a long way since the early days of "clocking in." Though many smaller companies still employ the classic type of stamp-punch time clocks, there have been some great advancements in time clock technology that have made these types of time clocks a second-rate choice for larger companies. One of the most interesting advancements has been in the so-called biometric time clocks.

Amano makes a great biometric model time clock called the Amano MJR-BIO. The key feature of the biometric time clock is that it utilizes fingerprint analysis technology. Instead of an employee having a time card, or even an ID badge, they simply use their fingerprint as their time card. This completely eliminates the time-honored, though unscrupulous practice of employees clocking in and out for each other.

The Amano MJR-BIO doesn't stop at simply having advanced identification technology. It's a great time clock even without the fingerprint ID system. It has such great features as a 250 employee capacity, and automatic adjustment for daylight savings, leap years and long and short months.

Deciding on a Biometric Time Clock

Biometric time clocks are a really very fascinating development in the time clock industry, but that doesn't necessarily mean that they are right for your company. Biometric time clocks are used primarily for larger companies, or companies where there is concern about improper employee clocking-in practices. If you operate a small company that only has a handful of employees, a biometric time clock may not be your most cost effective time clock option.
