Time & attendance for the construction industry

Time tracking can be such a challenge for the construction industry. Some of the difficulties that the construction industry face include juggling a mix of part-time & full time employees under different trades, receiving different pay rates, requiring flexible hours, all the while these employees are scattered across multiple locations... and that's just one of the projects on the go. All these factors contribute to the complexity of monitoring hours worked and managing time & attendance with efficiency and accuracy of records, not to mention costly.

'Has reduced our wage bill already!'

Andy Ridge - Managing Director, Industrial Engineering & Installation Services


Thankfully biometric time & attendance technology can be used to simplify all of the difficulties mentioned above.

Using biometrics for recording your employees time and attendance is by far the most accurate and cost effective solution available, with Fingerprint and Facial Recognition devices currently the most popular biometric devices for time and attendance.

GDPR Compliance

Our range of devices don’t hold any biometric data that could be useable elsewhere.
A random matrix of data is stored of a user’s fingerprint or face (rather than a full identifiable scan). This data isn’t readable by any other type of device.

It's portable, waterproof, dust-proof and shockproof build proves its practicality for challenging environments with IP65 rating.

ZKTeco VF380 Facial Recognition & RFID Terminal

VF380The ZKTeco VF380 offers fast and accurate facial identification and enrolment for your workforce. Ideal for construction sites for up to 400 personnel, facial recognition eliminates attendance fraud - no more paying for time employees are not present.

Facial recognition is ideal for manual working industries such as construction where employees may have dirty, dusty, wet or worn hands. It eliminates time taken to register by identifying employees in less than a second - simply look and go.

The VF380 can be networked or stand-alone with USB drive download option. Work codes can be applied to this device via Go2Clock.

Workforce Management System for Construction

Convenience and simplicity is key. Say goodbye to the pain of software downloads and updates with Go2Clock

Go2Clock: Next Generation Cloud Based Time & Attendance

Capture employee time in & time out data and access from anywhere with an internet browser via your own cloud set up. This is ideal for construction where locations and hours constantly change.

Data captured by the time clocks syncs with the Go2Clock servers (based in the UK) and the records can then automatically appear in your very own cloud set up. Employees can be identified by either fingerprint, facial recognition, RFID card or tag and PIN codes
