Easy to use
Not only can traditional timecards be time-consuming for payroll clerks to process, it can be a time-consuming process for employees to fill them out, and rushing at the end of the day to turn in a time sheet can be an added stress.
The JobClock Hornet eliminates these issues — a paper timecard is unnecessary, as the JobClock Hornet technology is already in the bus the driver is operating, and Powers says it is easy to use.
“Drivers simply touch a green Keytab to the unit to clock in or a red Keytab to clock out,” he explains. “It takes just seconds, and the workers can get back to what really matters — safe transportation.”
Size of workforce isn’t an issue
The size of the workforce doesn’t matter when it comes to the JobClock Hornet, as the system is completely scalable and can be adjusted based on number of employees.
“We have customers that use one clock, and we have others that use hundreds of clocks,” Powers says. “It all depends on how many workers and locations you’re trying to track.”
He says that both small operations and large ones are taking advantage of what the product has to offer since it assists in maintaining accuracy and saving costs.
Many smaller operations that use the technology are surprised to see how much money they save in payroll even though they don’t have many employees, Powers adds.
The JobClock Hornet is designed to be a durable system. According to ExakTime, the battery life of the JobClock Hornet won’t be affected by loss of electricity. The technology runs on a lithium ion battery, enabling it to last longer. If the battery does die, however, records are safe and will still remain stored within the program.
The technology is also protected by a case created to withstand difficult weather, while still enabling wireless signals to be sent from environments with even the most extreme temperatures. The JobClock Hornet functions normally from -10 F (-23 C) to 170 F (76 C).
In addition to the wireless transmission of data, the device supports Bluetooth and infrared data collection.
