Touchless Clock

Touchless clock in is available on the Deputy Kiosk app for iPad. Employees can start and end shifts quickly with facial recognition and voice commands — reducing queues and supporting hygienic workplaces.

Touchless Clock

Biometric facial recognition

  • Today, there is no good excuse to be standing in line to clock on for your shift or start a break. Forgotten pin codes and passwords are a thing of the past.

    With the Touchless Time Clock enabled, employees can start their shift in actual seconds, which is especially valuable for teams with a lot of employees who start work at the same time.

    With the latest biometric facial recognition technology, you can have peace of mind that the right person is clocking in at the right time for their shift.

Save time approving timesheets

  • The Deputy Kiosk with Touchless Clock In removes the manual workaround of verifying employees on shift by instead using facial recognition to verify employees.

    The Kiosk syncs with all the shift rostering and rest break compliance intelligence built into Deputy, ensuring employers can stay protected against compliance risks even while handling lots of shift swaps and creating last-minute new shifts.

Improve Communications

  • Increased communication is more important than ever to ensure employees can be brought up to speed quickly on changes. The Deputy Kiosk News Feed is the best way to ensure important communications to employees are never missed.

    When employees clock-in, they can see important messages and tasks right away, and even be required to confirm they’ve read and understood. Articles or videos can be posted for every employee starting a shift to view, making it the easiest way to spread the word on updates to protocols or new training.


  • Removes the worry and stress of verifying employees onsite and recording accurate timesheet data during a time of a lot of changes in shifts and restoring. The Touchless Clock Ties in with Deputy’s built-in compliance, accounting for overtime, breaks and stress profiles.

Clock In Questions

To protect your business and limit the risk of employees and staff being exposed to COVID-19 in your workplace, Deputy has introduced Clock In Questions. Now you can perform a quick, automated health check of every employee before they start their shift — and prevent clock in if the employee presents signs of illness.

Clock In Questions

Pre-Shift Health Check

  • Deputy’s Clock-In Questions provides a critical first step for employees returning to the workforce. Business owners can modify the product to ask employees questions confirming they are healthy and prepared to start their shift. The product has been designed to be fully customizable for business owners, enabling them to apply the latest local or state safety and hygiene regulations to the checklist. The employer-generated checklist appears as a series of questions employees are prompted to complete before and after their shifts. If an employee does not pass their health and safety check, management is notified immediately and the employee is no longer allowed to clock-in.

Customizable Questions

  • As these questions are completely customizable, they can be set up to capture any number of important health questions that may be important for your business — such as whether your employee has checked their temperature (and record what their temperature was), whether they’ve washed their hands, and even how they traveled to work.

    For additional protection, if an employee answers “yes” to a question that indicates they could present a health risk, you can set an automatic block that will restrict the employee from clocking in. And the manager will receive an instant alert so they can immediately take action.

Prioritize Employee Safety

  • While ensuring your team is in good physical health is a critical focus, so too is ensuring their mental and emotional wellbeing throughout this incredibly difficult time.

    As we ease back into our new normal, there is still a great deal of uncertainty and concern over how the next couple of months will play out. This can weigh especially heavily on the minds of employees who have found themselves moving from isolation to the front line of customer service.

    Clock In Questions can be used to provide much-needed insight into how your team is fairing on a day to day basis and identify what might make them feel more comfortable about coming back to work.

    Over time, capturing these sentiment scores can also be used to help build a bigger picture in your business about how employee morale can interact with employee turnover or customer service quality.

Attestation Reporting

  • Clock In Questions can serve as an “attestation” capture for your business, meaning that you can use this feature to capture any agreements between the business and employees that are legally compliant.

    For example, you might have an employee who arrives late for a shift. In some jurisdictions, regulations require that the employee confirms they did, in fact, arrive late due to their own fault. Otherwise, if the employee arrived late because of the manager’s request, that would indicate a late change of schedule and could incur a penalty. With the answer captured on the employee timesheet, future disputes can be easily resolved through a clear record of attestation in Deputy.
