Fingerprint Time Clock System & Badge Scanner

WiFi Time Clocks with Interactive Touchscreen Display

State of the Art Biometric Fingerprint Employee Time Clock System

The CloudTouch Model CT72 is Lathem's newest fingerprint clock in reader and proximity badge scan time clock system. CloudTouch's fingerprint time clock enrollment wizard lets you add employees fingerprints in less than 30 seconds encrypting fingerprint images before sending them to the biometric engine for verification. An advanced employee fingerprint clocking in machine, the CT72 fingerprint and thumbprint scanner utilizes precise optical fingerprint scanning technology to achieve excellent image quality and superior reliability. A silicone coating allows it to read a wide range of fingerprints accurately including dry, moist or rough fingerprints.

Employees simply scan their fingerprints to verify their identity and automatically create a timestamp. This stamp is synced to a timesheet which allows managers to quickly access important data and is synced with payroll to ensure employees receive accurate and fair payment for their hours.

​Built To Work In The Cloud With Offline Backup

A fingerprint attendance system is one of the best ways to eliminate buddy punching and time theft while streamlining processes like time tracking and payroll all at once.

CloudTouch fingerprint time clocks work seamlessly with Lathem’s PayClock® Online employee time & attendance software, so you can access and manage employee time to process payroll - anytime, anywhere. Through your WiFi or Ethernet connection to the Web, CloudTouch time clocks instantly deliver employee data to PayClock Online. If you ever lose Internet connectivity at your facility, no worries - the biometric fingerprint time clock automatically switches to offline mode letting employees clock-in/out and use other functions while storing transactions until your Internet connection becomes available again.

The fingerprint clock in software is reliable and convenient. You can count on it to ensure the employee data you need is easily accessible and secure even when the unexpected occurs.

Fully Interactive Touchscreen LCD Color Display

CloudTouch time clocks have a modern LCD touch screen interface that allows employees' to clock in and out, check their totals, change departments, add amounts, and more. A large display shows the employee the time they punched in/out, their total worked hours for that period and even messages from their supervisor.

A thumbprint time clock can be seamlessly integrated into your facilities and is, most importantly, easy to use. With one press of the fingerprint scanner your employees can update their time card. At the same time, supervisors can check the time and attendance systems in real time to make changes and more.

The fully interactive fingerprint time card system is intuitive to use while still offering superior functionality for employees and supervisors alike.

Multiple Methods for Recording Your Employees' Time

The fingerprint time clock offers employees different options to clock in/clock out and access information from the touch screen display. You can set up it up as a clock in machine system using employee fingerprints and thumbprints or employees can use the clock with the convenience of swiping a proximity badge, optional key fob or entering a personal PIN. You can even setup secure door access or signaling via internal relay control.

The best fingerprint scanner for attendance tracking should be versatile enough for your business needs. Large corporations and small businesses can both benefit from a versatile biometric time clock that improves efficiency for these daily tasks.

What customers are saying about this time clock

The PayClock Online system has made things so much easier. I cut my payroll processing time by 60 percent. And our employees think the CloudTouch time clock is the coolest thing, they just put their finger on the sensor and it records.

We have had a lot of success with the CloudTouch time clock at the Atlanta Braves stadium so we will place a CT time clock at another one of our customer sites. The PayClock Online system has been a tremendous help as well.

I had lathem and we moved so we left the time clock at our old location. I tried a new company and don't like them. I quickly realized how easy Lathem was to use and how great their customer service is.

Because I have already recommended you services to another business owner. It is a great system for businesses that have employees that work in the field and do not come into the office to punch a clock.

Fingerprint Time Clock FAQs

Fingerprint time clock systems utilize biometric technology to identify employees and supervisors by their unique biometric features - in this case, their fingerprints. In the past decade, biometric time clock software has come a long way and it can scan features including facial patterns, fingerprints, and even your iris. Fingerprint scanning has long been at the forefront of biometric time tracking, and for good reason.

Some benefits of utilizing a fingerprint clocking in machine include:

● Eliminates buddy punching

● Everyone has a unique fingerprint they cannot duplicate, lose, or forget to bring

● Streamline time tracking and payroll

● And more

A fingerprint time clock allows employees to clock in and out of work simply by scanning their finger. The time clock compares the employees’ fingerprint to a stored biometric template, and if it’s a match, then it logs the action. This allows employees to conveniently log their hours without having to worry about remembering an ID card or pin. It also helps combat buddy punching, helping employers to keep more accurate data.
