Manual time recording
- Entering working time
- Entering project and order data
- Entry of vacation, illness, absences
- Maintenance of data also for other employees
- Users need a TimePunch Management license
- Change rights are controllable via roles and the mapped organizational structure
Manual data entry and correction is essential for the HR office. Incorrect entries can be corrected quickly and absences such as vacation or illness can be added with just a few clicks. Of course, changes are always traceable.
TimePunch allows you to restrict the change rights per user based on the assigned roles and rights, as well as the organizational structure, mapped via teams, departments and branches.
Manual recording of working and project times is also ideal for demanding project work. It allows users to record their own hours manually and assign them to projects and customers. Especially for project work and with trust-based working time, this type of time recording makes sense.
Time recording on your own PC
- Automated time recording
- Recording of working time and project times
- Fast change of time recording
- Inexpensive alternative to the classic time recording terminal
- Users need a TimePunch Watcher license
- Change rights are controllable via roles
Automated time recording on the employee's own PC is particularly suitable for employees who work to a large extent on their own workplace PC. No hardware terminals are required for these employees; instead, the working time is logged directly on the PC. It is possible to automatically credit a time bonus per day for the time lost when entering the company premises to the PC.
Time recording on the employee's own PC is also suitable for work in the home office if the employees log on to the PC in the office via Microsoft Terminal Server, Citrix or other virtualization solutions.
Of course, the rights that users have with regard to changes and booking options can also be controlled centrally here.
Mobile Time Recording
- Start/stop function and manual recording
- Independent of the terminal device used
- Capture of GPS position data
- No installation necessary
- Users need a TimePunch Online license
- Change rights are controllable via roles
- GPS position data can be requested optionally or as mandatory.
Mobile time recording via TimePunch Online is particularly suitable for employees who do not have a fixed workplace, such as field workers and freelancers. They can record working time directly at the customer's site via a browser or smartphone.
Another option is the use of mobile time recording for employees who work partially mobile in the home office and need an alternative to time recording at the classic time recording terminal in the company. The advantage of this is that time recording in the browser must be started separately and therefore does not interfere with recording at the time recording terminal in the company.
The time recording can be done via the start/stop function, or with the appropriate authorization, also by manually entering the working time.
Time recording at the hardware terminal
- Simplest operation, without entry hurdle
- Query of account balances
- Optional order booking via control panel or barcode scanner
- Tamper-proof due to password protection
- Users require a TimePunch Terminal license
- Available as office or industrial terminal
- Available with LAN, WLAN or mobile modem connection
Time recording on the classic time recording terminal is the simplest way to record the working hours of employees. Employees do not need any previous knowledge. The recording is intuitive and can be learned quickly after a one-time demonstration.
With the Smart-Tag key fobs and cards, booking is also completely contactless. Key fobs or cards only need to be held in front of the time recording device. The booking takes place in an alternating clock-in/clock-out process and is acknowledged with a beep.
Optionally, job bookings can also be made via the control panel or a barcode scanner. This allows working times to be assigned to different cost centers, which can later be used for invoicing or recalculation of an order.
Datafox terminals are available as simple office terminal, representative terminal or robust industrial terminal.
Time recording on multi-user PC
- Order bookings integrated or via barcode scanner
- Quick change of users
- Can also be run in kiosk mode
- Users need a TimePunch Studio license
Time recording on a multi-user PC is mainly used in the manufacturing industry and in the workshop environment. The advantage is the comfortable selection of orders and the quick change between user and order.
Compared to order booking on the time recording terminal, booking is clearer due to the size of the screen on the tablet or kiosk PC.
In addition, the software can be run in kiosk mode, which prevents misuse of the PC, as time recording cannot be terminated or exited without a system password.
