The Compact Time & Data Terminal can record employee time, monitor productivity, control access and monitor inventory in a multitude of industries including restaurants, hospitals, health care facilities, banks, manufacturing, retail, hospitality, and many others.

The Compact Terminal functions as a simple to use data collection point for employee information. It can be linked to a variety of existing computer networks in your organisation to complement the management information systems you already have in place.  By automating your data collection process, you can eliminate the manpower and mistakes associated with conventional time cards thereby reducing both payroll costs and errors.

The Compact Terminal guarantees accurate, reliable input.  Employees simply enter information through the Compact Terminal's keypad, by swiping a magnetic stripe or bar code badge. Employee feedback is provided through audible accept/reject tones and displayed messages.

Communication between the Compact Terminal and your computer is accomplished by polling and programming utilities or integrated time and attendance systems. The Compact Terminal automatically transfers data to your computer.  In turn, the computer is used to program the Compact Terminal . Each of the Compact Terminal's 8 function keys can be programmed to ask up to four levels of information.

Put the power of automated data collection to use in your business! 

Each piece of information can be validated and stored in the terminal’s memory until requested by the host computer. The Compact Terminal can be programmed to prompt employees for data input, display employee messages, validate job costing entries, restrict employee punching via a schedule, regulate employee access to restricted areas, control a bell and much more.  The Compact Terminal collects this data and transfers it to your computer via RS232 serial, RS485 LAN, internal dial-up modem or Ethernet communications.

The Compact Terminal is constructed of injection-moulded plastic that provides a tough, yet lightweight and attractive case. The Compact Terminal's internal battery provides full operation if power is lost.
