The OTC Fingerprint Reader is OnTheClock.com’s fingerprint login option. With this option, the employee places their registered finger(s) on the reader to securely log them in to punch in or out for the day. This option eliminates buddy punching and also requires the employee to be at the company facility to punch in or out, thereby eliminating the chance that they will punch in or out at home or on the road. The Fingerprint reader replaces the employee's User Name and Password and still requires the employee to click on the Punch In/Out button to actually punch in/out.
This is a Premium Service provide by OnTheClock.com and is an additional cost of $0.50 per employee per month above the Standard pricing per employee for accounts with 3 or more employees. Accounts with 1 or 2 employees will no longer be free accounts with this option, there will be a minimum $5.00 per month charge for these accounts.
