An Overview of AccuCloud with facial recognition time clock 

The AccuCloud system is comprised of the following components:  

  • ATS time clocks.  
  • TimeCollect, our time collection software. 
  • AccuCloud middleware that communicates between the ATS time clocks and your application.  
  • The AccuCloud portal that gives you full visibility into all your customers' ATS time clock installations. You'll see each device to easily monitor their on/offline status. The portal is also where you can monitor integrations.  
  • Our optional Only|You™ Face recognition software, which runs on our stride80 time clock. 

ATS hosts both the AccuCloud middleware and the portal in a secure, cloud-based, multi-tenant architecture. Your team has no server-side responsibilities with AccuCloud. The ATS team also builds the isolated cloud instance you'll use to monitor and manage each customer.  


AccuCloud is a True Plug-and-Play Solution  

We'll work together to design the terminal configuration(s) your company wants to offer customers.   

We also send the time clocks directly to your customers.

For customers who opt for the face recognition option, employees will first enroll in the biometric system at the time clock. They can do this at the time clock without needing any tech support. The Only|You™ Face recognition software includes our IDAssist function, which gives employees a visual guide that makes enrollment and using the face recognition quick and easy. 

The ATS tech team updates AccuCloud software and Only|You™ Face recognition software. They also handle any customization changes you require. All the time clocks get updated on your schedule. Your entire deployment stays running on the same software at the same time, freeing your tech team from having to manage different versions across customers.

Biometric Usage: Growing concerns over the privacy and security of biometrics are driving government regulations surrounding the definition of personal data and how to protect it. These regulations vary from country to country, state-to-state, and in some cases city by city. Most often the governing regulations are dictated based on the location where the information is being collected. It is important to understand the local regulations in the geographic areas in which you operate. If you are uncertain regarding your regulatory obligations, we encourage you to consult with your legal counsel.
