Time clocks are a vital tool in keep track of the time an employee works on the job. However, many jobsites in construction or remote field work, lack the necessary infrastructure to support internet connected time clocks. One company developed a biometric time clock application which could connect with a timekeeping cloud service via wireless communication including cellular services. In order to deploy their software, the company needed a rugged hardware system that could work anywhere and be installed quickly and easily with little infrastructure needed. The company turned to AAEON to find a suitable hardware solution.
AAEON worked closely with the company to identify their key needs and requirements, and selected the RTC-700B 7-inch rugged tablet PC as the best solution for the job. The RTC-700B offers several advantages to deploying the company’s biometric time clock system.
