Your Hand Is Your Card

There are no cards to create, administer, carry – or lose. The HandPunch® 50E verifies employees' identities in less than one second, based on the unique size and shape of their hands. For small companies, the HandPunch 50E 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 50E one employee can't punch for the other. Time fraud is eliminated thereby reducing payroll costs and increasing the company's bottom line.

Affordable Ethernet Solution

The HandPunch 50E comes standard with an ethernet connection. With ethernet connectivity being a readily available, low cost solution for many businesses, the HandPunch 50E ultilizes a built-in ethernet connection allowing for quick installation to your time & attendance application.

Hand Geometry Technology

The HandPunch 50E 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.
