Why choose “Intelligent Storage” over “Real Time”?

Systems that communicate in "Real Time" rely on a constant connection to a computer in order to record punches. With "Real Time" systemS, if your PC Locks Up because of a power interruption or is Shut Off, your employees are standed and valuable payroll data is not recorded.

Time Clock Data is too important to lose and PC's fail too frequently. As a result IconTime systems use a method called Intelligent StorageTM where you can record and access employee inforamtion whenever you need it, with or without a functioning PC.

Intelligent StorageTM 
also gives your employee much better feedback - never leaving them feeling disconnected. When punching in or out employees are greeted with their Name Dispayed on the clock terminal's display. The Intelligent StorageTM  system knows each employee's profile, allowing them to change assigned departments, enter tips or job numbers, view Hours Worked and check their last punch right at the clock.

Intelligent StorageTM  
drastically reduces training time and increases employee satisfaction as they can see that their inforamtion is being accurately recorded. 


How does a Badge-free system save you time and money?

Many employers at first glance lean towards a badge based system to minimize employees intentionally punching in for one another (buddy punching). If the badges are not kept in a rack, but instead are taken home by the employee, this can be an effective method to minimize buddy punching, but what are the hidden cost associated with badge based systems.

The final price may not be as low as it first appears. Most badge based systems offer a minimum amount of badges in the purchase price. You will need to have additional badges to give to new employees and replacements for badges that get lost or wear out. To cover card loss in the early days of the system, manufacturers recommend purchasing twice the number of cards than employees. Adding the extra badges to the system base price will give you a more accurate initial cost.

The need to inventory badges creates an ongoing supply expense.  Badges are available only from the manufacturer of your time system and must be ordered by mail.  When you run out of badges, new employees or those who lose a badge will not be able to use the system until new badges arrive. If you need to order badges on a quick-ship basis, you will also incur additional costs. 

Perhaps the largest cost associated with badge systems can be illustrated by considering what happens when an employee loses or forgets their badge.  When this happens the employee must delay the start of their work so that they may find a manager.  Once found, the manager must go to the time clocks PC, start the time and attendance software, and manually edit the employees time.  It is often best to issue the employee a new badge so that this process does not have to be repeated at lunch and at the end of the shift.   This consumes another badge (often costing as much as $4), causes additional paperwork, and produces confusing reports.  A lost or forgotten badge costs time, productivity, and money.

In contrast the Icon Pin Entry (personal identification number) Employee Time System is complete no extra cards, supply expense, or hidden costs.  Employees can pick an easily remembered ID number of their choice that keeps punching in and out of the clock trouble free.  Buddy punching is eliminated, as software reports can quickly identify anyone who is sharing their ID number with another employee.  Also, because there are no card slots or sensors to fail or be vandalized, your clock will last trouble-free for years.

It is hard to beat the simplicity and dependablity of the IConTime PIN Entry Time Clock System. However, if a Badge Based system is right for you, the IconTime Proximity Badge Time Clock System offers innovative solutions to several of the above problems.
