  • Provides the most accurate time and attendance solution available
  • Fast and easy to use

Smarter than card-based terminals

There are no cards to create, administer, carry — or lose. The HandPunch verifies employees’ identities in less than one second, based on the unique size and shape of their hands. HandPunch clearly notifies each user of a match using red and green indicator lights. Because no one can punch in or out for your employees, the system reduces time theft and improves payroll accuracy.

Versatile and Programmable

Beyond a simple time clock, the HandPunch 2000 provides definable data management keys that allow data collection when employees punch. The systems transmit data to the time and attendance host PC through a variety of options, depending on the model. Model differences let you tailor the right system for your company’s size and needs

Product Description

Biometric Hand Readers

Using hand geometry technology, a hand punch reader brings the accuracy and security easily within reach of time and attendance systems. It eliminates “buddy punching” which is an age old problem of employees clocking each other in – your hand is your badge! It also eliminates issues with lost badges. NOVAtime partners with RSI and offers the following hand punch readers:

Hand Geometry Technology

  • The HandPunch 2000 uses RSI’s field-proven hand geometry biometric technology.
  • The terminal captures a three-dimensional image of the hand each time the employee punches.
  • The hand’s size and the shape are used to verify their identity with unparalleled accuracy.
  • No fingerprints or palm prints are utilized. Green and red lights notify the employee of the status of each punch. There’s no question any more; employees have to be there to punch.

Programmable Data Management Keys

  • The HandPunch 2000 has two user-definable data management keys that let you collect data as employees punch.
  • Common uses include department transfers, tips collected, job codes, or pay codes.
  • Multi-level data entry sequences may be defined. You can also set the data management keys to allow employees to review their past punches.
  • To reduce keystrokes, the keys can also be set to automatically enter data such as a frequently used department number or in/out status.
