TimePilot: Better Than Biometric

Thinking about fingerprint or facial scan timeclocks? Don't do it!
(Unless you want to be in the privacy protection business!)

There are lots of hoops to jump through once you start collecting biometric data.Clocking in with a fingerprint, a facial scan or an iris scan sounds great, right? It's easy, inexpensive (no more time cards!) and you can't cheat. But biometric time clock systems have plenty of downside, too:

1.   They can get you sued if you don't follow data privacy laws to the letter. In 2022 in Illinois, companies using biometric time and attendance systems paid out more than $88 million in settlements when sued for violations of the state's biometric privacy law. Other states are considering or have adopted similar laws. Want to avoid the danger of a gigantic lawsuit? Choose a TimePilot system: We don't use biometrics.

2.  They're high-maintenance. Lotion, grease or dirt on a person's hand can smear a fingerprint sensor's glass, making it difficult for others to clock in or out. And let's not mention viruses and bacteria!

TimePilot has a better idea: iButtons

An iButton: Practically indestructible.Each employee clocks in and out with the tap of an iButton: a key-sized device that fits on a keychain and contains a microchip with a unique ID number. The stainless steel iButton is rugged, unaffected by dirt or liquids and never wears out.

The result: Accurate timekeeping with no biometric headaches.

TimePilot has an iButton time clock for every need,
with your choice of Cloud-based data or data kept on your server

Cloud Edition prices are as low as $5 per employee per year!
