Acroprint's TimeQplus proximity is a popular proximity badge time clock system.
The system combines their successful TimeQplus network software (PC only) with an Acroprint TQ600P proximity terminal.
We find using proximity badge systems a great way to collect punches. They don't require personal biometric information, they are fast and easy to use, and they don't require a PIN number.
It works by first assigning a badge number to each employee. The RFID reader in the clock reads that number as the badge is waved in front of the device to clock them in.
What comes in the package?
- (1) TQ600P proximity terminal
- (1) TimeQplus Network software license for 50 employees (Upgradable) (PC only)
- (15) Proximity Badges
- (1) User manual
- AC power supply
- Mounting hardware
- Free 30 days support
- 2-year warranty
Who is it best for?
Companies wanting a reliable, proximity time clock system, but without the monthly fees. Best used in an office environment, or anywhere without extreme temperatures or dampness.
How do employees clock in?
Employees wave their RFID badge in front of the clock. About an inch or two. When the punch is successful, it plays an audio confirmation.
