AMGtime adds smart labor management features to biometric time and attendance device
Labor management solutions provider AMGtime has unveiled a new biometric fingerprint self-service kiosk to allow employees to clock in and out, approve timecards, view schedules and benefits, submit PTO requests, transfer between jobs and more, the company says in an announcement.
The Elionic 200 kiosk’s software can be customized to provide as many or as few features as needed by the company for efficient and seamless interaction. The second-generation Elionic device can collect transaction data, including failed transactions or those made outside of designated time periods, to support compliance and improve ease of use. It can also be set for “lockout” periods based on individual employee work schedules or restricted time zones assigned to employees. The Elionic also includes off-schedule meal reporting with explicit notification if a break outside of the normal schedule is a personal choice or mandated by the company, and can prevent employees from taking shorter lunches than mandated by not allowing clock-in before the specified time. Companies using the Elionic can manage their labor with device features like pending timecard approval.
Employees can interact with the Elionic using a fingerprint, proximity card, or PIN and password, alone or in combination. The device stores up to 200,000 transactions, can take a photo to accompany transactions, and control a bell system or door access.
The original Elionic Android-based tablet device was launched in 2017. The market for biometric time and attendance solutions is becoming more crowded, with other offerings recently launched by Suprema and Bodet.
