JTA-250 PC Time Clock

The JTA-250 PC Time Clock is an excellent solution that allows small businesses or larger companies that manage employees time from each branch take advantage of automated time and attendance. Not only is the terminal sleek and compact, it has a built-in proximity card reader that stresses ease-of-use. 

Employees simply wave their badges in front of the terminal to punch IN or OUT, even when the badge is in the employee’s wallet or purse. With the proximity reader, no direct contact is required and there are no moving parts making the terminal virtually maintenance free. Two software programmable function keys allow for department or job transfers, entry of tips, or the viewing of the employee’s last punch.

The JTA-250 PC features public and private messaging that allow management to send messages via the clock to all, or to selected employees. Optional features include lockout times when employees are prevented from punching IN or OUT, bell ringing, and opening of doors.
