Powered by the M2SYS Hybrid Biometric Platform, RightPunch supports fingerprpint, finger vein, palm vein and iris biometrics. The system also supports offline punch storage and schedule enforcement as well as alternate punch submission mechanisms like PIN entry.
RightPunch software is installed on servers at each of U.S. Vision’s over 700 locations. Each server then connects to the M2SYS Central Data Management System, which synchronizes data across the system. Employees scan their fingers and a timestamp is recorded and then automatically reconciled with the Kronos Workforce Timekeeper timekeeping software.
“Our RightPunch PC-based biometric time clock solution perfectly complements the Kronos timekeeping software that is used by U.S. Vision,” Michael Trader, President of M2SYS said. “RightPunch drastically reduces payroll error rates, expedites the clock in/out process and is a more affordable alternative to wall mounted biometric time clocks. In addition, the solution produces a concrete audit trail of time and attendance system data that can be reviewed to quickly settle disputes and ensure compliance with labor laws.”
M2SYS’s Public Relations and Marketing manager John Trader recently wrote a blog on BiometricUpdate.com on commercial deployments of biometric technologies and user acceptance.
“RightPunch is a smart addition that will help to strengthen our labor tracking strategies and supplement our goal of helping employees boost productivity and increase accountability to achieve optimal performance,” Carmen Nepa, U.S. Vision’s CFO said. “We are confident that this improves our Kronos workforce management timekeeping software attendance system and is an important piece of the puzzle in our continued efforts to reduce payroll inflation for lower labor costs and to achieve maximum return on investment.”
According to a report on the M2SYS website, “Recent studies have shown that the integration of a biometric solution into employee time clock terminals and software can help an organization to save up to 7 percent of gross payroll annually by utilizing secure fingerprint recognition technology to eliminate buddy-punching.”
