Replicon has announced that its time-tracking solutions will support Apple iBeacon technology, which consists of Bluetooth Smart transmitters. Specifically, Replicon’s mobile applications–running on iOS or Android phones and tablets–will be able to use Bluetooth beacons to automatically detect and identify employees when they walk in and out of a work locations and then send that data to Replicon software for accurate calculation and time tracking. The addition of beacon technology is designed to help streamline the process of employees logging and reporting work times, and can help eliminate long lines at the clocks, travel time abuse and missed punches, and also ensuring employees are paid for exact hours worked, according to Replicon.

By removing the need to punch into a time clock, document job and 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.

Replicon customers will be able to use any vendor’s Bluetooth beacons that comply with the iBeacon profile, such as those from Estimote or Gimbal, according to the company. Replicon support for Apple iBeacon will be available in later this year.
