RALEIGH, NC — February 3, 2005 — Acroprint introduces biometric HandPunch technology at a price any business can afford. This cost-effective, reliable technology adds employee security and prevents buddy punching. Employees must be present to "punch" because their hands are their badges. Employees simply punch in or out by entering a pin number and placing their hand on the verifying pad. The terminal captures a three-dimensional image of the hand each time the employee punches. If the geometry of the hand does not verify, no punch is registered. No fingerprints or palm prints are utilized. An employee’s hand is verified in less than one second and a green or red light indicates the punch status. It’s quick and easy.

Small businesses that have avoided biometrics in the past because the products were cost prohibitive need not wait any longer. The ATRx Biometric 1000 is cost-effective and designed for businesses with up to 50 employees who want to automate their time and attendance process. With numerous report options, exporting data to payroll providers is easy and eliminates the need for handwritten records. The ATRx Biometric 1000 can handle any pay period and up to twelve shifts with two levels of overtime.

No need to reorder paper time cards or badges with this product. There are no cards to create, administer, carry, or lose; your hand is your badge. The ATRx Biometric 1000 saves you valuable time from manually calculating payroll and purchasing replacement badges or paper time cards.
