A Leading HCM provider Paylocity bolsters workforce management offerings to support organizations as they help employees back to work

FREMONT, CA: Paylocity, a leading provider of cloud-based HR and payroll software solutions, launched next-generation touchless time clocks as the latest addition to its modern time and attendance tools. Paylocity’s time clock technology provides real-time, touch-free thermal temperature scanning to support safe and healthy workplaces.

“The employee time clock is the most-shared device at many organizations, and as the pandemic continues, maintaining social distancing and ensuring employees’ health and safety has become a major challenge for many business owners and HR leaders,” said Steve Beauchamp, CEO of Paylocity. “Our latest innovation answers the modern workforce’s call for contactless time collection.”

As part of the company’s ongoing commitment to assist employees safely back to work, Paylocity’s time clock solution has several pre-set modules, from which users can choose to meet today’s business needs. Paylocity’s touchless time clock performs multipoint thermal body temperature scans that take only a moment to complete. Users can supplement this functionality within the platform with customizable employee verifications that facilitate the real-time assessment of symptoms and wellness.

Additional clock feature options also include biometric fingerprint readers; facial recognition that functions in seconds, even when employees are wearing a mask; badge readers for instant time tracking; photo capture to record and validate identity; and attestation prompts that reinforce health checks.

These new features supplement Paylocity’s existing suite of time collection options that are designed to meet clients where they are. Employees can also utilize kiosk tablets and the Paylocity mobile app or desktop self-service for a fast and safe clock.

“By complementing our time and labor tools with the new touchless time clocks, we’re helping organizations eliminate high-touch areas, foster employee well-being, and enhance productivity,” said Beauchamp. “The platform updates reinforce our commitment to helping clients navigate the COVID-19 crisis while providing flexible solutions that work best for modern workplaces.”
