(The Hosting News) – MinuteHound, makers of advanced time and attendance systems, recently announced a February 2014 release of their latest software. MinuteHound’s time-keeping and check-in software is used across many businesses to simplify the process of time logging and to defeat time-theft. Using a sophisticated system of biometric fingerprint scanners, cloud storage, and data quantification, MinuteHound’s time clock software is primed to continue revolutionizing time-keeping through many industries.
MinuteHound’s technology works by tapping into advances in biometrics and cloud computing power, dragging the concept of employee time-keeping into the modern era. The system uses a biometric fingerprint scanner to log each employee in quickly and efficiently. Since no two people share the same fingerprint, this unique identifier serves to guard against the rampant abuse and vulnerability that older, more traditional time-keeping system are prone to. MinuteHound’s system then stores all login data in the cloud using 128-bit encryption to keep records secure. With this information now living in the cloud, it becomes trivial to use sophisticated analytic software to isolate patterns and inconsistencies. Residing in the cloud has the added benefit of being accessible anywhere, as long as the user has an internet-connected device. MinuteHound’s software can even send alerts directly to business owners through text message and/or email.
Seeing the struggles companies go through with traditional time-keeping is what spurred MinuteHound to create its innovative system. Already in use by many businesses, MinuteHound’s software eliminates errors in time accountability, simplifying payroll and eliminating fraud. Time fraud accounts for approximately $148 billion is losses for businesses each year, all stemming from outdated or error-prone time-keeping systems. MinuteHound’s software is designed to protect against these threats. The precise log-in and log-out times that the software records are also valuable when building an accurate database of attendance over time. This shields businesses that use MinuteHound software from allegations of improper or faulty record keeping.
All the time-saving benefits that come with using MinuteHound translate directly into money saved, which makes the already affordable system that much easier to implement. A one-time purchase of a fingerprint scanner and a monthly service fee are all it takes to get started. Having a powerful, cost-efficient system would not be as attractive a solution if it were difficult to maintain. In response to this, MinuteHound has spent considerable time and effort building a system that requires minimal effort to operate over time. No special IT knowledge or technical know-how is required to use MinuteHound’s system. It just works.
Many businesses have already installed MinuteHound’s high-tech solution and reaped the rewards. Many schools and institutions use the student attendance software as well. Biometrics are the key to lower costs and higher efficiency. Fewer accountability hassles, streamlined payroll, and complete protection against fraud are only a handful of the benefits a business can look forward to with MinuteHound on their side.
