Word is spreading across the workforce management landscape about the benefits of using biometric employee identification for time and attendance. Most notably, biometric technology has proven to:
be a more affordable alternative to expensive wall mounted time clocks
eliminate “buddy punching” resulting in a more productive work force
reduce payroll inflation and payroll error rates
be more secure and efficient than a PIN or ID card
Recently, we teamed up with Fujitsu to offer an educational webinar to our healthcare community about the benefits of palm vein biometric employee identification as a workforce management tool including:
the problems with traditional punch options
introduction to our RightPunch™ PC-based biometric time clock
the architecture and process flow of RightPunch™
advantages of using Fujitsu’s palm vein biometric modality
advantages of using biometrics for employee ID
case studies of successful deployments for our RightPunch™ biometric time clock

What: Tweet chat on biometrics for employee identification in workforce management
Topics: Advantages of using biometrics, ROI metrics, common misunderstandings of biometrics, future trends
We took a temporary hiatus in January, but we are back in February with a fresh new subject to discuss on the monthly #biometricchat – biometrics in workforce management. Happy to announce that this month’s guest for the chat will be Scott Barker, a product marketing manager with Kronos, Inc. (@Kronosinc on Twitter) who will be answering questions about the applications of biometric employee identification in workforce management, specifically:
1. Metrics that businesses can use to measure their ROI after investing in biometric employee identification
2. Common misunderstandings about biometric technology
3. Future trends for biometrics in workforce management
4. Advantages of using biometrics
Just in case you are interested in participating but are new to Tweet chats, please read this post which outlines the instructions and procedures. We hope that you will join us for the discussion, and please spread the word among your colleagues and friends.
Do you have any questions that you would like to ask Scott? Please send them to: email@example.com or come prepared with your questions, comments and feedback on Thursday, February the ninth at 11am EST.
Today, M2SYS announced that another California State University campus has incorporated their RightPunch™ biometric time clock using palm vein technology to keep track of employee time and attendance. California State University, Fresno Association, Inc. has implemented the M2SYS RightPunch™ palm vein biometric employee identification technology with Kronos Time and Attendance Software to help optimize labor tracking performance. Click here for a copy of the news release.
Joining with Cal Poly Pomona Foundation, Inc. who currently uses palm vein biometrics with the RightPunch™ biometric time clock, California State University, Fresno Association, Inc. chose to implement a PC-based biometric time clock with their Kronos Time and Attendance software to more efficiently manage and track labor costs and reduce employee time theft. In addition, California State University, Fresno Association, Inc. also sought to speed punch times and avoid costly legal expenses and legal fees which can often be a tremendous financial and resource burden.
RightPunch™ drastically reduces payroll error rates and helps expedite the clock in/clock out process to boost employee productivity and increase accountability. Plus, RightPunch™ is a more affordable alternative to a wall mounted biometric time clock and is powered by the M2SYS Hybrid Biometric Platform™ which offers support for fingerprint, finger vein, palm vein and iris recognition, ensuring that 100% of employees are reliably and consistently identified.
We welcome California State University, Fresno Association, Inc. into the M2SYS family of RightPunch™ users and look forward to working with more institutes of higher education and all others to help implement biometric time clocks to efficiently track employee time and attendance.
Today M2SYS announced another partnership to broaden the reach of RightPunch™ a PC-based biometric time clock designed as an affordable alternative to a wall mounted time clock or a way to augment exist time clocks. We are proud to say that RedPrairie Corporation, a leader in enterprise workforce management software and labor tracking solutions that improve employee performance will now offer the RightPunch™ biometric time clock as a complement to their existing workforce optimization tools.
Many companies are already using the RightPunch™ biometric time clock and realizing the benefits after switching from paper time sheets, non-biometric time clocks or outdated time and attendance systems. Among the long list of benefits that a PC-based biometric time clock can bring to a company seeking to lower costs, raise employee productivity and maximize return on investment with a workforce management application the following are important benefits for companies to consider that seek to control labor costs:
Increased employee productivity by eliminating time theft and speeding up punch times.
Strengthened security and efficiency over ID cards or personal identification numbers (PINs).
Reduction of payroll inflation and payroll error rates.
Ensuring compliance with labor tracking laws by establishing a concrete audit trail of punch activity.
Offline punch capture and schedule enforcement to ensure accurate data and compliance in cases of network loss.
M2SYS has developed a customized version of RightPunch™ that interfaces with RedPrairie’s workforce management platform and communicates with RedPrairie time and attendance software to seamlessly submit stored punches, enforce schedule restrictions and provide access to employee self service features. RightPunch™ also has an optional touch screen interface allowing it to run on kiosks or terminals that can be mounted to the wall just like a traditional time clock. Under the terms of the partnership, RedPrairie will market and resell the RightPunch™ biometric time clock to its customers and prospects.
We are excited for the future of PC-based biometric time clocks and the benefits they can bring to companies seeking to fortify their workforce management software solutions. Please contact us with comments or feedback on this partnership or any other questions about our RightPunch™ solution.

Yesterday, Fujitsu and M2SYS hosted a webinar on how palm vein biometrics can help strengthen PCI and Workforce Management (WFM) Compliance. We discussed some common challenges that PCI and WFM non-compliance create as well as how businesses need to identify technology applications that will help to lower risk and create efficiencies. In addition, we covered discussed how palm vein biometrics can:
