Our work

Schimera has worked with an agri-business to develop a customised application for the Schlage HandPunch GT-400 - a hand scanner device. GT400 Handpunch

With this application employees place their hand on the scanner to clock-in to their shift, and at the end of their shift they can clock-out and describe the tasks they have completed during their shift. This application allows business owners to accurately record the movements of a large workforce throughout the day, and be alerted should any employees not clock-out after their shift.
