CARLSBAD, Calif., May 1, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Nimble Software Systems Inc., providers of workforce operations software and solutions, today announced the launch of the Ximble Time Clock App for tablet devices. Integrated with the wider Ximble.com platform, the Ximble Time Clock App allows for easy employee check-in and check-out using PIN codes or QR code scanning, with a photoClock feature to verify employee identity when checking in.
According to Nucleus Research, 19 percent of employees admit to buddy clocking a practice whereby employees clock in for each other. This practice is often used to disguise tardiness, longer breaks, or even entirely missed shifts. This practice accounts for over 2% of gross payroll losses. Not only is the practice financially draining, it often leads to mistrust and management challenges for the company.
"Traditional time clocks have always required a great deal of manual work, complex spreadsheets, and antiquated checks in a system prone to errors or human manipulation," said Peter Swaniker, founder and CEO of Nimble Software Systems. "The Ximble Time Clock App leverages the ease of tablet technology with the convenience and accuracy of electronic and photo identification for an easier, more accurate time clocking process."
The Time Clock App for tablets is designed to provide an easy, convenient, and accurate way for employees to check in for their shift. Workers can punch in fast with unique PIN codes. For employers that find PIN codes a hassle or too easy to forget, the App allows employees to check in using QR codes as well. Employees simply scan the code from their mobile phones, or print out the codes for easy access.
Best of all, the Time Clock App helps businesses stop the practice of "buddy clocking." Employers have the option of turning on the photoClock feature, which uses the tablet's built in camera to take a picture during every clock in, ensuring that employees only clock in for themselves and not each other.
The Time Clock App works seamlessly with Ximble's online and mobile software platform, which provides a powerful suite of scheduling, time tracking, and rich reporting features that help companies better manage, communicate with, and optimize their staff. The Ximble Time Clock App provides a clear history of clock-ins and clock-outs, which directly integrates with the existing Ximble platform tracking features, delivering the data in seconds, allowing employers to inspect and approve time entries and manage employee attendance.
Access to The Ximble Time Clock App is free for Ximble subscribers, with subscriptions starting at only $2/user/month. Try for free today at https://www.ximble.com/
