Time America’s TA715 Time & Data Terminal can record
employee time, monitor productivity, control access and
monitor inventory in a multitude of industries including
restaurants, hospitals, health care facilities, banks,
manufacturing, retail, hospitality, and many others.
The TA715 functions as a simple to use data collection point
for employee information. It can be linked to a variety of
existing computer networks in your organization to
complement the management information systems you
already have in place. By automating your data collection
process, you can eliminate the manpower and mistakes
associated with conventional time cards thereby reducing
both payroll costs and errors.
The TA715 guarantees accurate, reliable input. Employees
simply enter information through the TA715’s keypad, by
swiping a magnetic stripe, bar code or presenting a proximity
badge. Employee feedback is provided through audible
accept/reject tones and displayed messages.
Communication between the TA715 and your computer is
accomplished by one of Time America’s polling and
programming utilities or integrated time and attendance
systems. The TA715 automatically transfers data to your
computer. In turn, the computer is used to program the
TA715. Each of the TA715’s 8 function keys can be
programmed to ask up to four levels of information. Each
piece of information can be validated and stored in the
terminal’s memory until requested by the host computer. The
TA715 can be programmed to prompt employees for data
input, display employee messages, validate job costing
entries, restrict employee punching via a schedule, regulate
employee access to restricted areas, control a bell and much
more. The TA715 collects this data and transfers it to your
computer via RS232 serial, RS485 LAN, internal dial-up
modem or Ethernet communications.
The TA715 is constructed of injection-molded plastic that
provides a tough, yet lightweight and attractive case. The
