Larry Lucas, the corporate controller at Rockenbach Chevrolet, wanted to prevent employee time fraud at his Chevrolet dealership in suburban Chicago.
So he replaced the old-fashioned time punch clocks with hi-tech devices that identify an employee with a biometric scan of his or her hand.
Lucas' dealership, in Grayslake, Ill., became the test site for the ADP Full HandPunch.
Rockenbach employees are punching in and out by inserting their hand into the biometric devices.
The dealership has four such scanners.
The Full HandPunch verifies each employee by the size and shape of his or her hand. It compares each scan with measurements made during an initial reference scan that is in its database.
