A Reliable Restaurant Time Clock

Whether you’re running a local restaurant or a national chain, FingerCheck’s payroll software can accommodate your needs and makes it easy for you to keep track of your employees. With time clock software just as dynamic as your workforce, you can rely on FingerCheck’s automated timekeeping to track your complex operations and simplify your payroll process.

Working in the food service industry, managers often face unique challenges like paying employees across different departments, jobs, and shifts. FingerCheck’s customizable job costing allow employees to move from job to job, accurately calculating their rates based on the cost center levels they select through the day. Major benefits of our versatile time clock software over traditional methods include eliminating time abuses such as buddy punching and simplifying payroll with time tracking that is always accurate. You’ll save time and money with our cloud-based restaurant employee clock system.

How to Use Our Restaurant Attendance System

Employee management is simple with FingerCheck. Our restaurant attendance system can be accessed with varying levels of authority depending upon the login each user is assigned – administrator, supervisor, and employee.

Employees with self-service can use FingerCheck to make time off requests, view their schedules, and review their time worked. Multi-level job costing ensures job recording is always accurate so employee paychecks always reflect time worked appropriately.

Administrators have full access to the software and can grant supervisors certain role rights that allow them to access restricted areas of the site. Using FingerCheck’s customizable software, administrators can create policies that regulate break time, overtime, and paid time off with the rules and conditions they want.

They can also log in and see who is working at any given time, review and approve timesheets, and run reports to analyze time attendance information. These reports can be used to identify and make informed decisions on staffing, overtime costs,and  labor law compliance.

Device Recommendations

Restaurant employees can clock in on a biometric time clock, computer, a tablet using the FingerCheck time clock app, and a smartphone using the FingerCheck mobile app. Depending on where your employees clock in, you have multiple options as to how you set up your clocking stations.

If you’d like your cashiers to clock in by the register, you can download the FingerCheck TimeClock app and set up a tablet by the register that works as a time clock terminal. For only $10/month, the app is a cost-friendly alternative to buying a time clock.

If you’d rather have actual hardware, you can set up multiple time clocks either mapping each clock to a job (so each clock only allows employees to punch in for a specific job like server or cook) or setting all the clocks up with job costing so employees can punch into the job they’re doing, then transfer their punch when they shift to a different role.ta103c

The TA103C is a great option in a restaurant setting due to its durability and price, especially if you aren’t tied to extra like RFID cards or Power over Ethernet. It holds 8,000 fingerprint templates, is Plug ‘N Play Internet Ready, uploads real time data with push technology, accepts offline punches, and more. This model syncs seamlessly with our software for hassle-free storage straight to the cloud. For more details on the TA103C, go to our product page.
