(May, 2012) Livonia, Michigan: Attendance on Demand, cloud-based employee time and attendance solution, announces the immediate availability of the IDpunch 9 employee time recorder. The IDpunch 9 time recorder is an easy-to-use time clock that employees use to punch In or Out and enter other time tracking information. Available with bar code or magnetic stripe readers, the time clock lets employees simply swipe their badge and go. Supervisors have labor management functions available right at the time clock.
The IDpunch 9 extends the capabilities of the popular IDpunch series available from Attendance on Demand. The IDpunch 9 tracks employee time and attendance information that can aid in recordkeeping to minimize compliance-related risks. Automating timekeeping reduces payroll errors and enforces a company's pay rules. Compact, durable, and low cost, the IDpunch 9 can be located throughout a facility wherever a network drop is available. Simply plug into a power outlet and Ethernet port.
Notes Beth Baerman, Product Manager at Attendance on Demand, Inc., "The IDpunch 9 provides businesses with the extensive features of a high-end model without the high price tag. And, the easy installation makes it truly plug and play — it can even read common barcode and magnetic stripe formats used on existing employee ID badges. "
With the IDpunch 9, employees press a key to access advanced features like reviewing available vacation time and requesting days off. They see schedules and worked hours. Employees in service industries like restaurants and resorts can enter tip information at the clock, capturing this important information at the end of their shift rather than days later. Supervisors can add missing employee punches, credit paid sick days, and add employee work schedules by using one of the clock's function keys.
