Time recording using a punch clock

The punch clock has made its comeback. Companies are returning to a modern take on this tried and tested technology that makes registration of hours faster and more accurate.


How does the punch clock work?

Shiftbase’s modern take on the punch clock is a box installed on location with a direct connection to our software via the internet. Our punch clock enables real-time insight into which employees are clocked in and what the current labor costs are. If an employee forgets to clock in or out, their registered hours can always be adjusted manually.

Manual adjustments possible



With the Kiosk app, employees can easily punch in. You install the kiosk on a tablet, which you can then place or mount in a central location. Employees receive a unique pin code with which they can punch in and out from that central tablet.

No high purchase cost of a terminal

Reduces the chance of incorrect hours



An alternative to our Kiosk, is to use a clock terminal. This gives you a lot of real-time data such as who is currently punched in and the current wage rates. Employees can punch in and out using a keychain, card or finger scan.

Reduce incorrect registrations

Many companies use a paper time sheet to register worked hours. When employees fill in their hours, they are often illegible or incorrect. By using a punch clock, these errors become a thing of the past.

Easily export hours to accounting


Automatic time registration

By using a punch clock, time registration can be fully automated.

Automatically round clock times

Clocked hours can be entered automatically based on the work schedule. When an employee clocks-in before the scheduled time, the start time of the shift is recorded.

Automatic calculation of breaks

The software can automatically calculate breaks. This is based on hours worked or fixed break times. When an employee clocks-out, Shiftbase looks at the number of hours registered and calculates the break time.

No errors

Allowing employees to punch in on site decreases error proneness.

Rounding off hours

Hours are automatically linked to shifts and rounded off accordingly.

Break calculation

Based on the hours worked, the break time is automatically applied.


Irregularity surcharges are calculated in real time for employees.

Geolocation and IP

Determine with Geolocation and IP from which location employees can punch in.

Time saving

Automatically transferring hours worked saves you a lot of time.


Punching in with the mobile app

In addition to punching in and out from a central location with the Kiosk or a clock terminal, it is also possible to have employees register their hours worked via the mobile app. This can be useful if employees work on location or from home. As administrator, you decide from which locations punching in and out is allowed.
