Biometric time and attendance solution for your business
Want to make your workforce more productive? Save time and management hours by streamlining your payroll procedures using Almas’ Biometric Time & Attendance software, ideal for companies from 5 to 200 employees.
What is Optima Time?
Optima Time is a powerful software that integrates with Optima Access Control Software. Through the time management software you can check working hours and tardiness/ absences.
Easy, Flexible Management
Set working time slots for groups of employees or contractors. Set theoretical working week, break times and tolerance levels.
Employees clock in and out using their finger. They can request absences and meetings with their manager/ HR.
Intuitive software; check at a glance if employees have met theoretical work hours threshold.
Check who's in when you're off-site using Optima mobile. Run reports for satellite sites from HQ.
A Clear Insight/Monitoring
Check discrepancies and amend if required. A log is kept of all modifications.
History of Modifications
All modifications are recorded, so managers are accountable for any changes made.
Only the person can 'clock in' using the biometric reader. Stop 'buddy punching' with unfalsifiable evidence of entry/ exit time.
Rise in Productivity
Monitoring time and attendance improves time-keeping immediately, transgressors cannot 'fix' fingerprint clocking in and out times.
Stops Buddy Punching
Millions of man hours are lost by colleagues logging missing people in early, or out late. Biometric time and attendance from Almas ends buddy punching.
How it works
When you place your finger on the biometric tablet, the unique points identified by the reader are checked against the ‘biometric template’ that was created when you were enrolled on the system. Two readers can also be used with Optima Time, acting as ‘in’ and ‘out’ readers.
By placing your finger on the biometric reader, you ‘clock in’ or out for the day. The Liguard controller communicates to the reader whether your print is recognised and authorised; the tablet will visually confirm that the print has been acknowledged.
The employee can see at a glance their hours worked that week, they can also request leave and a meeting with their manager/ HR through the tablet. This is linked to the Optima software by Cat5 cabling.
All events are logged in the Optima Time Software. Detailed reporting can be run on hours worked, absences and exceptions. The software can be accessed locally or through a network connection, plus there is flexibility and control on the move with Optima mobile.

How are Optima Time systems different from traditional time clocks and time cards?
The biggest difference is that everything is digitised and automated.Traditional solutions require more difficult and time-consuming data collection. Plus, paper based systems or cards can be cheated by colleagues clocking other people in, biometric systems, can’t be falsified.
How does Optima Time software integrate with payroll systems?
Optima Time systems integrate with payroll systems by allowing you to transfer your time and attendance data into your payroll program with the press of a button. This cuts down on errors and streamlines the entire payroll process
Are time and attendance systems only good for businesses with hourly employees?
While it might seem like time and attendance systems are only necessary for businesses with hourly workers, businesses with salaried employees can reap a number of benefits from them as well. Having a system that can track how long employees work on specific projects can help with labour projections and also ascertain working patterns
Is there a difference between a time and attendance system and a biometric access control system?
There are differences but the two systems complement each other. With a biometric access control system the main function is to control the entry and exit to specific areas for a specific person. Optima time can be a standalone tablet mounted on a wall and is concerned more with working patterns and hours
