Time Clock to Record Employees Work Time
The time clock is the equipment, which is used to record the check in and check out time exactly of the employees. This is used where a large number of employees are working. Employee time clocks are used for accurate recording of employees logging into work and checking out.
The recording of entry and exit time is made using heavy paper cards. The history of time clock dates back to 1888. It was invented by a jeweler in New York named Willard Bundy, which was later on organized by his brother Harlow Bundy. This took many turns and has now become necessary for all organizations employing number of workers. In 1970, the first punch card, which was made to work in co-ordination with Z80 Microprocessor, was invented.
There are different types of time clocks starting from basic to high end ones at present. The basic time clock will record the time and date on a card. There are self-calculating and automated time clocks available.
The time clocks supported by the software are also available for better recordings. This makes the calculation of employee working hours easier and the HR Department has better utilities from this type of time clocks.
This creates punctuality and time sense in employees and maintains records perfectly. Since the manual system of recording the employee register is outdated, all organizations are going in for these software-based time clocks. Though it involves initial cost, the benefit is derived in that the payment calculations are perfect. The human labor in calculating the payment is reduced largely. The latest trend in this recording system is the magnetic swipe card, which is accurate, and the best.
The time clock and employee time clock, which started as a basic model to record employee’s entry and exit time, has now become a necessity for all organizations reducing many human hours of work.
