RFID and Barcode Readers
Virtual TimeClock allows employees to punch in and out via several different interfaces, like selecting their name from an in & out list, using a numeric PIN, or an alphanumeric passcode. The PIN and passcode interfaces can increase clock in speed and accuracy with minimal user interaction, especially when paired with an RFID or barcode reader.
Below are general guidelines to help you understand how to set up Virtual TimeClock to work with RFID or barcode readers.
Important: We do not provide technical support for your hardware. Successful use of a scanning device is completely dependant on the end-user.
- You will need to create unique RFID tags or barcodes for each user that are compatible with your scanner or reader. To use the PIN interface, create numeric codes, to use the Passcode interface, use alphanumeric combinations.
