Recognition Systems, Inc. now brings the accuracy and convenience of biometric technology easily within reach of most time and attendance applications. In operations that range from coal mines to clean rooms, RSI systems have proven themselves to be a practical and precise solution. Their terminals are so affordable, it doesn't make sense to consider any other technology.

Smarter than card-based terminals
There are no cards to create, administer, carry -- or lose. The HandPunch verifies employees' identities in less than one second, based on the unique size and shape of their hands. HandPunch clearly notifies each user of a match using red and green indicator lights. Because no one can punch in or out for your employees, the system reduces time theft and improves payroll accuracy.

Versatile and Programmable
Beyond a simple time clock, the HandPunch 2000 (HP2000) provides definable function keys that allow data collection when employees punch. The system transmits data to the time and attendance host PC through a variety of options.

When you want to cut time and attendance costs...do it by hand.

Hand Geometry Technology

The HandPunch 2000 (HP2000) uses RSI's field-proven hand geometry biometric technology. The terminal captures a three-dimensional image of the hand each time the employee punches. The hand's size and the shape are used to verify their identity with unparalleled accuracy. No fingerprints or palm prints are utilized. Green and red lights notify the employee of the status of each punch. There's no question any more; employees have to be there to punch.

Small Enterprise Solution
The HandPunch 2000 (HP2000) provides a new solution for companies with 500 employees or less per terminal or location.  The HandPunch 2000 (HP2000) terminal allows for collection of in and out punches plus allows easy connectivity to the CompuTime101 time and attendance software.  With the HandPunch 2000 (HP2000) small companies no longer need to worry about lost timecards, making new cards, or employees punching for another employee.

Programmable Function Keys
The HandPunch 2000 (HP2000) has two user-definable function keys that let you collect data as employees punch. Common uses include department transfers, tips collected, job codes, or pay codes. Multi-level data entry sequences may be defined. You can also set the function keys to allow employees to review their past punches. To reduce keystrokes, the keys can also be set to automatically enter data such as a frequently used department number or in/out status.
