Time recording using a punch clock
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.
Always correct time registration
Time registration on paper is 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.
Allowing employees to punch in on site decreases error proneness.
Rounding off hours
Hours are automatically linked to shifts and rounded off accordingly.
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.
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.
