Buddy punching is a common problem in many workplaces, where employees clock in for each other, leading to inaccurate time tracking and payroll fraud. This practice can be difficult to detect and can cost businesses significant amounts of money. In this blog, we will explore how Clockgogo App can help avoid buddy punching and ensure accurate time tracking.

The challenge in handling buddy punching lies in the traditional time tracking methods that rely on smart/proximity cards. These cards can be easily shared or misplaced, allowing employees to clock in for each other. This practice can lead to inaccurate attendance records, which can be costly for businesses.

Clockgogo, on the other hand, does not rely on smart/proximity cards for time tracking. Instead, it offers a patented technology that uses a 4-level system to ensure accurate time tracking and prevent buddy punching. Let’s explore each level in detail.

Firstly, Clockgogo requires employees to verify their mobile number during registration. This ensures that the employee’s phone number is linked to their account, and they are the only ones who can access it.

Secondly, Clockgogo uses GPS to verify the employee’s location when they clock in and clock out. This ensures that the employee is physically present at the workplace and prevents them from clocking in for each other remotely.

Thirdly, Clockgogo uses face recognition technology to verify the employee’s identity. This technology ensures that the employee who is clocking in is the same person who registered for the account. This level of verification makes it impossible for employees to clock in for each other.

Lastly, Clockgogo offers CWS (Clockgogo WORK SPOT) Certification. CWS requires no cabling. Just simply place it at your office / shop / site and your staff can only punch card within 10m from CWS. This ensures that your staff are physically present at the site.

In conclusion, buddy punching can be a costly problem for businesses, but Clockgogo’s patented technology offers a reliable solution. By using a 4-level system that includes mobile number verification, GPS, face recognition, and CWS certification, Clockgogo ensures accurate time tracking and prevents buddy punching. With Clockgogo, businesses can have peace of mind knowing that their time tracking system is accurate, reliable, and fraud-proof.
