How Are Lathem Time Clocks Used?
Lathem time clocks are used as a means to ensure accurate timekeeping of employees. This is primarily done so that employers can easily and efficiently complete payroll tasks. Staff clock in and out for their individual shifts, and they can look at the time displayed on the LED screen for their own reference. Most Lathem time clocks are made of plastic or metal and keep a record by using a punch card. Punch cards typically display hour increments for a full 24 hours and are usually kept mounted on a nearby wall mount. With the online, WiFi-connected model, employees can simply scan their badges or IDs to clock in and out.
Types of Lathem Time Clocks
You have a few options when it comes to purchasing a Lathem time clock.
Punch Card Time Clock
These punch card time clock systems have been used in the business world for years and are a practical option. The punch cards are paper products that accurately keep a record of each shift. They display the time by using an atomic time clock and have an auto-calculation function that can determine the amount of time someone worked and deduct their break times. This option is commonly found in warehouses, offices, and other facilities. It’s available in a range of sizes and typically comes in a gray or black color.
Web-Based Time Clock
A web-based time clock offers a more streamlined version of the original punch card time clock. This product is more technologically advanced and offers a hands-free luxury. Many employees enjoy the touchless feature and the ability to scan their badges. This system works only with the separate purchase of the PayClock subscription.
These models typically come equipped with a battery pack in case of a power outage, so it would be smart to stock up on batteries as well. The PayClock software provides security and assurance for the employer that they are using a smart management and attendance system. Multiple web-based time clocks can be used within the same location and connect to the same account. They’re commonly used in highly-productive work environments or large companies with a significant amount of employees, such as hospitals.
