Ingersoll Rand Security Technologies announced that Hays House Nursing Center in Nowata, Okla., the United States, is using its biometric HandPunch reader to input time and attendance for tracking its 100 employees.  As a result, the nursing home is better equipped to both control payroll costs and ensure that the right employees are working at the right times.

“We had been using an old card system for years, but the clocks were breaking down and parts were becoming more and more expensive to replace,reports Hays House Nursing Center Administrator Charlie Larson.  “We decided on the hand scanner three years ago for its reliability and durability.  Everything is electronic, which has cut down tremendously on paper costs.  It just makes life simpler.

The HandPunch reader automatically takes a three-dimensional reading of the size and shape of a hand and verifies the user’s identity in less than one second. 

The Hays Nursing Center uses one HandPunch unit per approximately 100 employees.  The center is part of a group of nursing centers based in Oklahoma.  Ten of the centers use HandPunch terminals to track time and attendance for their employees.

With the HandPunch unit, Larson is able to produce a daily overtime report that alerts him to problems right away, rather than waiting for payroll processing to spot problems.  He also gets a daily report that tells him who worked the day before, when they arrived and when they left.   The Nowata facility is licensed for 112 beds and is approximately 30,000 square feet.  All employees enter and exit by one main door.  The HandPunch unit was easily installed in a staff room.

“There was a lot of excitement around the hand reader when it was first installed,Larson notes.  “Employees liked it because all they had to do was enter their number and then present their hand.   Previously, we had a huge rack for timecards and it sometimes took a long time for employees to find their cards.

Compu-Time Corporation of Oklahoma City, Okla. implemented the center’s time and attendance solution.
