TimeWolf Zephyr Payroll Time Clock System
Our Best Value -- a truly State of the art Time Clock System
How it Works
The Time Wolf Zephyr Employee Time Clock is an affordable time clock, bringing you the power of an automated Time Clock System at a very low price. The Zephyr, compact in design and easy to use, allows the employee to clock In and Out by using a Proximity Badge or via entry of a PIN Number at the keypad. The employee has the ability of viewing their last recorded punch time, transferring departments or even entering other information like tips, etc.
Some employees can even clock IN and OUT from (1) designated computer workstation with this system. Note: The Optional Multiple Network Users upgrade would allow employees to clock IN and OUT from multiple workstations on the network. (Local Area Network ONLY)
The large LCD Display provides maximum readability and the on-board speaker provides an audible confirmation of a complete or incomplete transaction.
The data collected by the Zephyr Terminal is then sent to the TimeWolf Employee Time Clock Software. TimeWolf puts you in control, detailed reports can be generated, exceptions tracked and corrected and then data can be passed on to payroll for check processing.

Schedule by Availability: The TimeWolf Time Clock software handles scheduling for workforces where the employee's schedule is created and chosen based on his or her "Availability" to work and/or when Task Certification Level is required for a particular job description. Next, Skeleton Templates can be created for each day so that the manager is ensured to provide enough schedule coverage during standard, high demand or seasonal scenarios.
Shift Differential: Apply Differential Pay and hours calculations for the premium shifts or zones that your company requires.
Punch Lockouts: Unlike other Time Clock software, TimeWolf's punch lockout capability is directly tied to the employee's schedule, thus allowing this feature to be more logical, dynamic and therefore, much easier to setup and implement. Apply punch lockouts for employee's In and Out punches right at the clock.
