Want to save your millions that are lost due to buddy punching? According to research, buddy punching costs employers $373 million annually. Buddy punching happens when one employee punches in for another employee who is tardy or absent from work. It is a disturbing and incendiary workforce practice that decimates productivity, return on investment (ROI), and bottom line profits of many businesses throughout the world. So, how you can solve this problem?
If you are a Kronos user, you can easily solve it using Kronos Intouch – a Kronos biometric time clock. If Kronos sounds expensive to you, don’t worry, RightPunch is the best alternative for the Kronos biometric time clock. This affordable time clock integrates seamlessly with Kronos and can help you to solve this problem. If you are wondering about how it can solve this issue, here are the 3 ways RightPunch, a biometric time clock for Kronos, can stop buddy punching.
Provides Accurate Results
RightPunch uses biometric technology for employee identification. It uses multimodal biometrics like fingerprints and facial features. There is no other way to punch in. However, biometrics are the human attributes that remain unchanged throughout life. These attributes cannot be passed on or copied. So, when an employee is identified using their biometrics, it means the result is accurate and something which employers can rely on, which leaves no room for buddy punching.
Difficult to Forge
RightPunch, a biometric time clock for Kronos, uses the strongest technology that cannot be forged or manipulated. In an RFID system or password-based system, employees can pass their credentials on to others. However, biometric technology is nearly impossible to forge or manipulate. Even if they try to fool the system using a fake finger, liveness detection technology can detect it easily. At the same time, with the face recognition technology in RightPunch, an employee could easily be caught even if they try to forge a face or manipulate the system.
Deploying RightPunch in your office will eventually let your employees know that you leave no room for buddy punching. Your employees will understand the biometric system cannot be forged or manipulated so whatever they do with the system makes them accountable. Since there is no room for proxy attendance, your employees will become more serious and punctual about their time. Their sense of audit trail will increase, and no one will try to fool the system. Eventually, the problem of buddy punching will be eliminated from your business.
