Release Notes


Virtual TimeClock 16 Release 1

May 23, 2016

Virtual TimeClock 16 has an updated, but familiar user interface that enables workers to punch in and out up to 50% faster and simplifies common administrative tasks. Workers are now automatically prompted if they forget to clock out and time clock managers can easily and quickly identify and correct timecards with missed punches. New lunch and group based shift rules help employers to save time, control overtime costs, and ensure compliance with state and federal labor laws.
