How a punch clock works

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 labour costs are. If an employee forgets to clock in or out, their registered hours can always be adjusted manually.

Reduce the chance of incorrect registrations

Many companies use a time registration form to register the worked hours. When employees register hours themselves, they can be unreadable or not properly registered. By using a punch clock, these errors become a thing of the past.

  • Always a correct time registration

  • Time registration on paper is a thing of 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.
