Prevent Buddy Punching

Updated: Nov 20, 2019

When talking to businesses using paper timesheets or a time and attendance system, one of the most frequently heard problems you’ll hear is “Buddy Punching”. Buddy Punching is a common industry term that refers to employee’s clocking in their coworkers when they are late or absent for their shift. This becomes a big financial burden for business owners.

Luckily, biometric time clock options can help to eliminate these inaccuracies. vIDix Labor Biometric Clocks use Lumidigm finger scanner technology which scans the finger vein pattern, rather than the scanning the actual fingerprint. Lumidigm technology has many benefits through vIDix Timeclocks. By scanning the finger vein pattern there is a higher success rate when employees are clocking in. You don’t have to worry about fingerprints being worn off or hands being too dry. By using Lumidigm biometrics we can guarantee

that success rates are higher than scanning fingerprint surfaces. This allows employees to feel safe when using a vIDix Labor Biometric Clock.

As mentioned, employees will have peace of mind when using the vIDix Labor Biometric Clocks. vIDix Labor does not store employee finger scans in the application. The finger scans are encrypted, converting it to a random set of numbers, and not storing it as an image in the application, keeping this personal information private and safe for employees.

By using a vIDix Labor Biometric timeclock you alleviate Buddy Punching and allow employees to feel safe when punching in and out at work.
