New Product:
iSolved Virtual Clock

The iSolved Virtual Clock is a web-based time clock that allows employees to punch in and out via a web interface. When using the Virtual Clock, employees do not have to fully log in to iSolved to register a punch-in or punch-out. 
iSolvedThe Virtual Clock can display a company logo and only requires the employee to enter the clock identification number (and a PIN, if desired by the company). The Virtual Clock can also display company messages that are set up to show on the iSolved company information page.
When punching in or out through the Virtual Clock, the employee will see their photo and whether any messages are waiting to be reviewed in iSolved. 
The Virtual Clock can be configured to allow for quick or detailed punching. No schedule restrictions will be in place. The only restriction is who can punch in or out on the clock, which is determined by eligibility rules set up by the client.
