Your Hand Is Your Card

There are no cards to create, administer, carry – or lose. The HandPunch® 1000 verifies employees' identities in less than one second, based on the unique size and shape of their hands. For small companies, the HandPunch 1000 provides a quick return on investment by eliminating the cost associated with administrating and managing cards. For companies that have small, multiple locations, minimal supervision leaves opportunity for buddy punching and time fraud. With the HandPunch 1000 one employee can't punch for the other. Time fraud is eliminated thereby reducing payroll costs and increasing the company's bottom line.
