Essential Info

David-Link delivers its products with advanced technology in the Time and Attendance field. The W-988 Biometric Time and Attendance System is a wall mounted time clock system designed for any business with up to 300 employees. Employees clock and in and out of the reader by using their fingerprint (biometric scanning sensor takes less than one second to complete the image scan) or using their own unique PIN number. A large LCD screen displays the employee name when they punch in or punch out for easy verification. It is a simple solution for tracking employee times, in / out, lunch, breaks, overtime, holidays and absences. You can set up rules governing how employee time is accounted for, rounding, early in or late out, and overtime.

The reader also works as a standalone time clock and is able to collect employee time without the need for a computer. Or you can connect directly to any computer through a USB Cable or Ethernet connection. Optionally, you can just plug in a USB Flash drive (sold separately). When used with the David-Link Time Management Software (DLTMS), included, you can effectively manage employee attendance and create multiple reports that apply to HR and/or payroll systems. You can edit, add or delete records using the Administrator feature while exporting many informative time and attendance reports to an Excel or Text file.

The W-988 features DO NOT include proximity badge verification or a built-in backup battery. If either of these features is required for your application, consider using the W-988PB, sold separately.
