This software was designed with ease-of-use for both end users and management as the primary goal.
Running on inexpensive Microsoft Windows workstations, FastPunch® works with an array of data collection devices, including RFID scanners,
magnetic stripe card readers, touch screens and mobile devices. An ideal solution for companies who need to track more than just clock ins/clock outs.
For example, FastPunch® can prompt employees for location, category and sub-category of work they've performed.
FastPunch® is a Windows-based timeclock solution that takes full advantage of current technologies, including RFID (Radio Frequency
Identification), magstripe and touch screen technology.
The user interface is intentionally uncomplicated, to ensure that people who are skittish about new technologies will feel completely at ease the first time they use the system. Employees need never use a keyboard when logging hours. In fact, depending on how FastPunch® is configured, most employees will never
see more than one or two components: an RFID or magstripe reader and a touch screen (optional).
Users clock in/out by scanning their RFID tag, swiping their magstripe card or typing in their employee number on a touchscreen. Then, (depending on configuration) they press a few buttons on the touch screen to specify location and category of work performed. Employees may review hours they've logged with the touch of a button. An optional In/Out board provides real-time personnel status.
Using RFID tags eliminates many of the problems other systems encounter--including lost punch cards, demagnetized badges, illegible barcodes and forgotten PIN numbers. Although they aren't required, touch screens provide an intuitive user interface, even for people who aren't familiar with computers.
FastPunch® was designed with ease-of-use for both end users and management as the primary goal. The software runs on Microsoft operating systems. It is an ideal solution for companies who need to track additional
information beyond mere clock ins/clock outs. For example, FastPunch® can prompt employees for location, category and sub-category of work performed. If you pay different rates for different types of work performed, it can provide a report at the end of the pay period, breaking out pay rates and hours worked per employee.
The management console allows managers to configure scanning stations, manage user accounts, review current In/Out status and generate reports. Management reports and timecards are generated in PDF format to ensure universal readability.
FastPunch® works best when installed on PCs running in Windows 10 or higher, connected to a company's local area network. Touch screen monitors are ideal for this application. However, standard monitors work fine, provided that users have access to a mouse.
