Introduction to TimePilot Extreme
The rugged TimePilot Extreme is designed for outdoor use, although it can be
used inside, too. It commonly would be used at construction sites, where the
clock is exposed to the elements. The clock is locked down to prevent theft, but
can be moved easily to another site when necessary.
Here's how it works:
- The clock is mounted and locked using the secure mounting plate and
- Each employee is issued an iButton and uses it to clock in and out. The
clock's memory holds all clock-in and clock-out data.
- When the supervisor wants to collect the data, he unlocks the padlock,
inserts the included USB drive into the bottom of the clock and taps the
gray Management iButton to the "In" probe. The clock then
copies to the drive all data that has been collected. The data is
protected from unauthorized access, because the clock won't download data
unless you tap the Management iButton to it. The supervisor repeats this
process with any other Extreme timeclocks he owns.
- The supervisor then plugs the USB drive into the computer running
Clock Manager. The software will import the data into the
The powerful TimePilot Management software consists of several modules:
- TimePilot Central: This password-protected module is
used by supervisors to add and delete employees from the system, view and
correct employee clock-ins and clock-outs and prepare the data for payroll.
In it they can modify the data, generate reports and export the data in a
format that can be read by a spreadsheet program like Microsoft Excel or by
many of the leading payroll services and software packages.
- Clock Manager: Supervisors use this
password-protected module to manage their Extreme
timeclocks, as well as any other TimePilot timeclocks they may have.
TimePilot Extreme also can be combined with
TimePilot Vetro and TimePilot's Smartphone Apps to create a single time and attendance system that fits your
organization's needs perfectly. All TimePilot time and attendance systems use the same management software;
once you know one system, you know them all.
