The clock is about the length of two credit cards and thinner than the width of a credit card, it displays the date & time. It fits nicely into your hand and when you push the button to turn the reader on and hold it near the employees card, it will read the card number, the clock will 'Beep', a bright LED will nearly blind you, the card number is then displayed on the LCD screen. It will switch off automatically. This card reader works for around 100 000 clockings before the battery must be replaced. This robust little clock will work in the rain which makes it splash proof.
The electronics are completely sealed and top of the clock has a rubber cover which can be opened to connect the USB cable to your PC. Then you can download all the clockings.  Simple as that.

The unit comes complete with a leather pouch (like a cell phone holder) that can be clipped to your supervisors belt and the clock is inserted and secured.  The supervisor takes the clock with him wherever he goes. Staff arriving late, need to go find the supervisor to clock in and report why they arrived late. Although not idiot proof, it will greatly reduce one employee clocking in/out for the other.
