Keeping track of man-hours is a vital part of maintaining the business. As such, the time clock is an integral part of that record keeping. Many of these systems operate by being plugged into a wall socket. These units become stationary and are limited by where they can be set up as they need to be near an available power source. However, portable time clocks are battery operated giving the unit versatility to be installed virtually anywhere.
Decorative reasons aside, the portable time clock can also be a great tool for working on location that is void of power. For instance, a construction site could benefit from a battery operated unit if the power lines haven't been installed or turned on yet. A warehouse can have this unit sitting on a table near the entrance without power or extension cords strewn about the floor - which could cause a tripping hazard. You could even keep track of staffing hours for outdoor projects that are completely void of power.
Although it's easy to fix a time sheet for an employee if the power goes out within an establishment. However, battery powered units from Amano time clocks can continue to keep accurate time for staff in such an event. This means your payroll person spends less time fixing problems that could occur should there be a brownout or complete power outage. If you have a medium sized business or larger, this could save a great deal of time for that individual.
The versatility of a portable time clock can keep your business functional in a wide range of circumstances. Whether you need a way to monitor your staff in areas where power isn't available or simply want to stand the unit in the main hallway on a nicely decorated table, these units can provide the ability.
