Biometric technology is increasingly gaining popularity as an effective employee data collection tool for industries like finance, manufacturing, healthcare and many more. Biometric HandPunch system eliminates the need for registers, passwords, or badges that can be lost or forgotten since it accurately identifies an employee using their fingerprints. One of the most important benefits of using a biometric system for employee identification is the elimination of buddy punching – where employees sign in or off on behalf of their colleagues. Additionally, a biometric fingerprint system eliminates unsanctioned overtime by forcing restricting schedules when staff can use the terminal. The employee is able to better utilize workforce with the HandPunch’s ability to record an employee’s time and attendance, monitor their productivity, control access to the building, and track the inventory.

How the HP3000 Biometric HandPunch works
No two hands are the same. This biometric time and attendance system takes over 90 measurements of the hand’s length, width, thickness, as well as the surface area of the hand and the fingers – all in under one second. The hand punch’s technology utilizes 32,000-pixel CCD digital camera to scan and record the hand’s 3-dimentional shape from silhouetted images as projected by the hand punch.
The HandPunch ignores surface details like the lines, scars, and fingernails, which may be trimmed from time to time.
Since this HandPunch uses the user’s unique hand shape to verify their identity, it can be deployed for use in factories, machine shops, manufacturing plant, and pretty much any industrial environment where the fingerprint scanner may not work effectively. When an individual uses the HandPunch, it matches the shape of the user’s hand to the pre-recorded templated that was taken during the enrollment session. If the template and the hand matches, the HandPunch notes this transaction for later download by the time attendance software.
So is the HP3000 Biometric HandPunch worth your money?
Studies have shown that outdated time and attendance systems like manual registers end up costing businesses that use them.
