If your business uses a time clock or if you're planning to install one, make sure you have all of the extra supplies you need so there's no halt in day-to-day operations. Stock up on replacement printer ribbons, and consider keeping back-up keys and batteries on hand. Also explore time clock supplies like bells and magnetic card reader cleaners. Review all of our time clock products, including the time clock systems, to be sure you have the right supplies and equipment for your business.
Find replacement ribbons compatible with specific time clock systems. Choose from compatible black ink ribbons or those with black and red ink ribbons that differentiate between on-time and late clock-ins. Keep extra ribbons in the storage closet for easy replacement when the ink runs out, and look for a battery replacement and set of keys for your time clock model so there's always a spare handy.
Make time clock management easier for your employees with extras to support digital time clocks and ID card readers. Consider key fobs for compatible readers, which are easy to swipe and keep track of than traditional RFID cards because you can keep them on your key chain. If you prefer a card swiper and ID cards, keep magnetic head cleaner cards handy to periodically clean the swiper on your machine. Also, consider synchronizing multiple time card machines with a bell and ringer that audibly notifies employees about breaks, lunches or shift ends. Synchronized bell ringers can be great for schools to notify students about class start and end times, too.
