Fingerprint or Face Recognition Clocking so you can be sure the right person is there

Are you having trouble keeping track of your permanent and temporary workers spread across multiple client sites, where installing & maintaining a traditional Time & Attendance system would be too costly?

What don’t you get?

With TimeBureau, there are:

  • No hassles
  • Low capital expenditure costs
  • No annual maintenance costs
  • No long contract terms or complicated tie-ins
  • No in-house IT costs
  • No need for expensive hardware
  • No annual licensing costs

How does it work?

For a low cost that includes configuration, we provide one or more Fingerprint/Card readers for each of your client sites, plus optionally one for each of your offices. You can register a new person’s fingerprint and it will be passed to the readers at your client sites. Alternatively, a senior person at each site can register the fingerprints of new starters. After that, on arrival at and departure from the client site, the person records a clocking just by pressing their finger on the platen of the reader. Their Staff ID and the date/time/site are automatically recorded and passed directly to the TimeBureau central system.

What happens if he doesn’t arrive when he should?

Well, firstly you can set a grace period for each site, so that if Fred does not arrive by (say) 08:05, you will receive an alert straight to your inbox – you could be in your office or sitting in your car or even at the park, but you will know before your client does and then have the opportunity to either call Fred (if you have recorded his mobile number, it will be included in the alert email) or to arrange cover. Also if we have alerted you of a “no-show” and then Fred arrives, we will instantly alert you that he has now arrived.

Remove the mountains of reports

We believe in reporting by exception, so rather than you wading through stacks of reports and emails, we only tell you what you need to know, giving you the chance to work where you need to.

From Clocking to Payroll

So now you have all your clocking data in the system, what can you do with it..? Well come payroll time, it’s just a click of a couple of buttons and out pops your hours for each employee, with optional maximum hours per day, which can be set separately for each site. What about client billing … do you bill by actual time spent on site, perhaps with a minimum or maximum number of hours each day? Again, just a few clicks and out pops the info you need.

You can also receive a file showing how many hows have been worked at each site for billing purposes.

Let us take the weight off your shoulders

We set up your system for you! Yes, that’s right, we are not just going to sell you a system and let you struggle to get it going. Your system will be set up with all your staff and sites when we hand it over to you. We will assign you an account manager who will guide you through the system and show you how it all works. You can contact your account manager anytime you need to with your queries, big or small. We believe in building up a personal relationship with you.

We do the work for you with intelligent state of the art technology allowing you to get on with what’s important, that maybe increasing your customer base or spending more time with your family. So act now and start saving time and money every day with a TimeBureau Time & Attendance system.

Whats the catch?

No catch, just a small fee from as little as 6p per person per day (and in some cases less). For that, we will provide you with a configured and supported TimeBureau Time & Attendance Software-as-a-Service solution! Once our customers have taken on our solutions they have never looked back and have saved money and time.
