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 Ruggedised Terminal guarantees accurate, reliable input.  Employees simply enter information through the Ruggedised 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 Ruggedised Terminal and your computer is accomplished by polling and programming utilities or integrated time and attendance systems. The Ruggedised Terminal automatically transfers data to your computer.  In turn, the computer is used to program the Ruggedised Terminal . Each of the Ruggedised 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 Ruggedised 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 Ruggedised Terminal collects this data and transfers it to your computer via RS232 serial, RS485 LAN, internal dial-up modem or Ethernet communications.

The Ruggedised Terminal's metal construction provides a tough, yet lightweight and attractive look. The Ruggedised Terminal's internal battery provides full operation if power is lost.

I read a lot about the available systems, looked into prices, which were similar, but it was Time & Access’ personal service that I really liked.  They came out to see us and gave us the answers we needed.
