The JobClock is an all-weather, battery-powered time clock that withstands difficult field conditions and makes downloading data into central computers a snap. Workers touch in and out with ID key tabs kept on their own key rings. Attendance data are collected with a PDA and transferred to the office. Another alternative, the PocketClock, is a PDA-based time and attendance solution for mobile work crews or short-duration jobs, or for tracking numerous cost codes. Once data from JobClocks and/or PocketClocks are in the office, you can print time-management reports and export data to Famous Software.
