The All New Allied Time Line of Time Clocks!

With more than 50 years of business to business experience in marketing time and attendance, Allied Time has designed a series of punch clocks that fill a variety of needs. From side printers to top loaders and even cloud-based facial and fingerprint biometric time clock options, these products are taking the industry by storm.

The AT2500 replaces the AT2400 with a more reliable and user-friendly experience.  This top loading time clock offers the ease of use that allows an employee to simply drop the card into the slot and the clock prints in the correct block every time.  This feature prevents overprinting and eliminates the need for the employee to line up the cards.  The attractive price point and simple interaction make this time clock very popular with small businesses.

This time clock unit comes bundled with a rack, time cards, ribbon, keys, manual and quick start guide as well as introduction to TimeAlly, a free time clock APP that calculates worked hours and eliminates the need to convert to decimals manually.

AT-3000 Electronic Time Clock Date Stamp
The AT3000 time clock is an affordable time date stamp.  This side printer can be used for marking on employee time cards or to stamp any other document as well.  Set up is easy and the use is straightforward due to an intuitive red bold guideline on the front of the machine.  There is a margin setting lever on the underside of the machine to facilitate a variety of uses on standard forms or random types of papers.

As with all of the AT non-calculating hardware, the use of the TimeAlly APP is free but a valuable time saver for totaling worked hours by an employee.

The AT3500 is the heavy duty and customizable time and date stamping machine in this new line.  At the time of purchase, a client may request that the Allied Time USA staff preprogram a custom message to be printed along with the time and date.  Typically around 15 characters including spaces are available to opt for such messages as the name of the company or government entity using the stamp.  Additionally, verbiage such as “Received” or “Filed” can be added instead to document any number of processes in your workflow. If the 3500 is being used for employee time tracking, the TimeAlly APP can streamline to process at no charge.

The AT4500 is the top of the line paper time card machine from Allied Time.  This top loading, calculating time clock can accommodate any pay period.  The advantage of having the employee hours totaled across for the day and down the card for the pay period allows the employee to instantly review their running total at a mere glance while punching in or out.  Two-sided cards allow for bi-weekly and semimonthly use.  The ease of use from a top loader combined with the advanced features of time calculation make this an ideal choice for the HR  who wants a traditional card but doesn’t want to waste time with adding up times.

The AT5000 is a unique piece of hardware in the Employee Time and Attendance tracking field.  This clock calculates the worked hours on an internal chip that can be downloaded to a PC via a USB stick or printed right at the clock with the onboard thermal printer.  Punch in methods include a fingerprint reader option as well as radio frequency identification (RFID) badges.  Additionally one of the more powerful features of this system is that the internal battery that can be turned on for use away from power sources.

Mobile biometric time tracking has never before been available at such a low price. This system has become very popular with employers who track their workers out of the office or do not have a computer and or power near their work stations.

Allied Time USA is historically one of the premier resellers of Cloud-based time and Attendance.  Now as it transitions into a private label OEM firm, the AT line reflects a new offer, the Alliance Time Clock System.  Powered by a proven calculating engine and some of the most prolific hardware in the market, the Alliance Time Clock System offers these best management practices for any size company. With the most competitive rates for service and ongoing support, the clear choice for the discerning professional is this software as service (SAS) platform.

Unlike most other time clock suppliers’ offers, this system can collect data even when offline.  Multiple locations can be combined into a single set of powerful reports with the cumbersome additional “per clock” fees charged on the antiquated systems being sold by competitors.

Cloud-based workforce management is now not only affordable for small business, but Alliance also brings the further value propositions of efficiency through real-time data processing, compliance via ongoing backups on the web and security against time theft (or “buddy punching”)  with biometric fingerprint or facial recognition scanners.
Web Based Wireless Biometric RFID Fingerprint Time System - Alliance AT10C

The AT10C fingerprint time clock is a reliable, field-tested unit that offers an RFID badge and PIN code punch in options as well.  The standard WIFI module allows for wireless communication.

The F300 is the facial recognition hardware that works with the Alliance Time Clock System; with Ethernet connection, the F300 provides more biometric verification especially in rougher environments.  The Alliance system has offline data buffering means that even if your internet is down, the system continues to record punches and updates the account once communication is reestablished.

This distinguishes the Alliance system from other national brands that cannot work at all without internet and will subsequently lose data collection capacity during an outage.

Advanced features including GPS enabled smartphone APP, job tracking, overtime tracking, benefit accruals, email alerts and more provide a distinct reoccurring return on investment for Alliance users.

Real-time data collection and processing can provide a competitive advantage and the accurate reliability of this data will be increasingly paramount for success as the information revolution. As technology advances and the marketplace becomes more complex, consumers can count on continued development of cutting edge solutions from Allied Time USA.

Facial Recognition Time Clock Overview


If you are considering biometric time clock solution, you have probably come across Face Recognition Technology as one of the newest biometric verification methods available. The biggest advantage of Face Verification versus hand or fingerprint scan, is that it is completely touch free. Biometric Face Reading devices are impervious to dust or grime that would typically present high rejection rates with fingerprint or hand scanning time clocks. It also eliminated the issue with employees having dry or damaged skin preventing them from using fingerprint readers successfully.

The new generation face reader time clocks are very efficient and extremely accurate. These devices use built-in camera lenses to scan up to 60 different points of employee’s face. The process is rather quick, allowing employees to punch IN or OUT with just a glance in less than 2 seconds of verification time!

The facial readers are also hygiene, because employees do not need to touch anything on the clock. This helps in reducing the spread of germs or viruses in a shared working environment. Some facial time clocks offer built-in RFID badge reader that can be used as an additional punching method in lieu of facial scan.

With pricing starting as low as $429.00 for a complete kit, the Facial Recognition time clocks make a great alternative to expensive hand reader solutions or unreliable fingerprint scanners Check out our Facial Time Clock System offers to chose one for your business today!

Ways to Save Time in Calculating Employee Hours

Calculating employee hours for payroll purposes is a time-consuming process – especially if you are using a manual time clock. It can take one employee hours to add up all of the employee hours using an Excel spreadsheet in order to finalize payroll. Not only is this inefficient, but it opens the process up to human error.

A better solution is to use modern time clocks that can help you to automate the process of collecting and tallying employee hours. Many products sold by Allied Time can help you reduce the manpower needed to calculate the hours worked by employees for payroll and cost analysis purposes. Many of these products automatically calculate lunch periods, breaks and overtime while printing these hours directly on a time card. Some calculating timeclocks will store this information in a manner that can then be exported and downloaded for HR uses.

Another option is to use biometric time clocks such as fingerprint time clocks to do your employee time collecting. These units will accurate record each time an employee clocks in or out. This information is then stored and can be sent uploaded to a computer system or sent via Wi-Fi for HR uses. Using a fingerprint time clock is a great option if want to simplify the process of collecting work hours while eliminating the potential for fraud or security breaches.

One consideration when researching time clocks is how many employees you have. Calculating “punch” time clocks are designed for small businesses. Many of them have limits for employee numbers of anywhere from 50 to 100. Make sure that you are getting the right time clock for the size of your company.

A Guide to Keeping Fingerprint Time Clocks Clean

Allied Time has been a reputable and trusted time clock superstore for over 45 years. That being said, they know that the quality of your security lies on the quality of your product. If you want to maximize your time clocks’ efficiency, periodic maintenance is recommended.

If you own an Allied Time fingerprint timeclock, then you’ve been exposed to the precision that their clocks are known for. However, it’s still important to clean your fingerprint timeclocks regularly – even if it is in a traditional office setting where hands stay relatively clean. This is because your fingertips naturally exude oil, which can lead to a film on the scanner over time.

You can make sure that your employee time clock is clean and working properly by performing some routine maintenance. Here are a few tips for cleaning and maintaining your biometric time clocks:

Use Compressed Air Ideally,  all electronics should be used in a clean, indoor environment.  For periodic cleaning a recommended method is the use of compressed air canisters made specifically for this task.  Canned gas dusters are commercially available at office supply stores and online; they are 100% ozone safe.

Use a soft cloth. You’ll want to make sure that you avoid using a hard cloth or other material when cleaning. Using a hard material can scratch the surface of the reader, causing it to not properly read fingerprints. A soft, lint-free cloth will work in most instances.

Avoid bleach or industrial solvents. Using bleach or chlorine-based cleaners may not necessarily damage the components of your time clock, but they can cause discoloration or damage to the outside of the unit. You’ll want to avoid using any of these products or industrial solvents that can be damaging to electronics. In most cases, a light cleaning with rubbing alcohol will do the trick.
