Replicon Revolutionizes Time Tracking with Support for Apple iBeacon

Redwood City, Calif., October 7, 2014 – Replicon, the leader in cloud-based time tracking software, today announced that its award-winning time-tracking solutions will support Apple® iBeacon™. This revolutionary offering is a game changer for Replicon customers, making time clocks a thing of the past, and taking the onus off employees to log and report time. The new capability eliminates long lines at the clocks, allowing smoother shift changes, travel time abuse and missed punches, saving customers’ time and money while ensuring employees are paid for exact hours worked.

With Apple iBeacon, Replicon's mobile applications detect and identify employees when they walk in and out of a work location and then sends that data to Replicon for accurate calculation and time tracking. By removing the need to punch into a time clock, do job/department transfers and fill out timesheets manually, the solution virtually eliminates human error and takes the onus off employees to accurately report their hours. Replicon’s iBeacon-enabled application also ensures employees don’t miss punches by prompting them with alerts on their mobile devices when they enter or leave a work zone.

“All businesses have to track employees’ hours for a variety of reasons, such as payroll processing and accurate Department/Job,” said Raj Narayanaswamy, Co-CEO at Replicon. “Using the power of Apple iBeacon, our customers can eliminate employee error that results from using paper punch cards, job cards, spreadsheets and other error-prone methods of time tracking. Customers will experience less hassle during payroll processing and be able to more accurately pay their employees while staying compliant.

Replicon support for Apple iBeacon will be available in Q4, 2014.
