Experiencing Budget Cuts? Don't Let Time Collection Get Overlooked

As we inch closer to a return to in-person learning, school districts are really beginning to feel the heat when it comes to finances. COVID-19 has been responsible for many schools to begin thinking about operating with reduced budgets


This is due to the fact that many schools rely on money from the state, which the Coronavirus has stifled significantly due to the reduction of income and sales taxes from residents. 


While the 2020-2021 school year may be looking rough financially, employees will still need to clock in and out and they’ll need to do so in an accurate and safe manner.


But who has room for new technology purchases in the midst of dealing with millions in lost revenue




Fortunately, Touchpoint has devised the perfect time collection device for this situation - the Touchpoint Tablet! A budget-friendly, all-in-one, custom Windows 10 tablet designed from the ground up to work flawlessly with Frontline Time and Attendance.


Here is why upgrading your time collection hardware should definitely still be a line item in your budget.



Avoiding Manual Time Collection


With a host of other headaches to deal with, double-checking your employees time cards should be the last thing on your payroll staff’s agenda.


Self-tracking isn’t very accurate to begin with either, meaning your payroll staff is going to be getting in a lot of cardio while they chase after employees who’ve made mistakes on their time sheets.


We know these things are a pain, that’s why our tablets are designed to work directly with Frontline and take care of time collection for you. How convenient!




Wasting Time and Money on Cheap Solutions


Money is tight for most as is, so why spend even more on several cheap scanners only to find out that they don’t work with your badge configurations?


Unnecessary trial-and-error is something we despise; that's why our Tablets are preconfigured for you before you even receive them.


And if you’re ever unsure about something, our knowledgeable support team is always ready to guide the way.




The Contactless Conundrum


Employees need to feel comfortable in their work environments. The items they must use to track their time everyday are constantly used by others, leading to many situations where viral exposure is possible - especially with the duration that COVID-19 can live on surfaces


This is where contactless scanning comes in. We have your back when it comes to touch-free clocking that doesn't skimp on accuracy and reliability


With Tablets that are preconfigured for your situation, all you’ll need to do is plug-in and dish out badges to your employees. Then, they can simply scan - and go!






When budget conversations arise, technology may be one of the first things to be knocked off the list, but it doesn’t have to be.


Our devices are fully-equipped to be the budget-friendly solution to your time collection situation.
