PTI Wall-Mounted Time Card Rack Review (400-3 & 300-1)

Tuesday, April 16th, 2013

PTI 400-3 Plastic Wall Mounted Time Card RackOne of the best ways to keep time cards organized and in check is to use a time card rack. These useful organizational tools come in a variety of shapes and designs, with a vertical alignment being most popular. If your business or organization is in need of a model that is solid, durable and reliable, you may want to check out the PTI 400-3 adjustable time card rack (found here) or the PTI 300-1 time card rack (found here). Here are a few reasons why you may want to consider using one of these for your business.

To begin with, time card racks provide a useful tool for organization. I have personally worked at businesses that used time card racks and others that simply used a drawer. The business that only used a drawer had to deal with missing time cards, frustrated employees and inaccurate payroll. The businesses that used a time card rack dealt with much fewer issues and employees were happy to find their time card in the same place every time.

Both the PTI 400-3 and 300-1 time card racks feature a vertical design that consists of 25 time cards. While it is nice to have an individual slot for each time card, these pockets can fit more than one if needed. Many of our customers, especially those with many employees, will purchase multiple units and mount them on the wall side by side. Both time card racks include all necessary hardware for mounting it to the wall.

PTI 300-1 Wall-Mounted Metal Time Card RackBoth of these time card racks are great options, depending on what you need. The biggest difference between these two racks is that the PTI 400-3 is made from impact resistant plastic and the PTI 300-1 is made from metal. Both hold up remarkably well in a business environment.

The PTI 400-3 is made from heavy-duty industrial plastic that is designed to hold up with daily use. It will not bend, chip or dent. Because it is plastic, you don’t need to worry about sharp edges or rust. The pockets will hold cards that range in width from 2.5″ to 5′ and in height up to 2.25″ to 10″. This time card rack is easy to adjust to your time card size.

The PTI 300-1 is made from powder coated metal. It has a nice smooth charcoal gray finish. It can accommodate time cards ranging in size from 4″ wide up to 9″ tall. This heavy-duty time card rack is ideal for industrial environments where it will experience heavy usage on a daily basis.

PTI makes time clocks and time cards, so it should probably come as no surprise that both of these racks are some of the best single column time card racks you can buy. As mentioned earlier, they can easily be mounted side-by-side for larger businesses and for situations where multiple pockets are needed.

Pyramid Technologies (PTI) Time Trax Bio Review

Friday, June 25th, 2010

PTI Time Trax Bio Employee Time ClockFinding a good, reliable employee time clock can be tough. There is a lot of cheap stuff out there and you need something that is going to last for years. One popular brand that a lot of people are using is Pyramid Technologies (PTI). One of their most popular models is the PTI Time Trax Bio (found here). Here is my review.

To begin with, the Tim Trax Bio is a biometric time clock that uses your finger to punch in and out of work. The employee has to be first set up with the time clock. This involves sliding a finger over the finger scanner. Once a name is associated with the finger scan, that employee can begin using the time clock.

So why use a biometric time clock? The biggest reason is convenience. They don’t require any special PVC ID cards or punch cards. All you need is your finger, and most people remember to bring that to work. There is no need to print replacement cards and buddy punching is pretty much eliminated.

We actually use this particular model for tracking employee time here at ABC Office. We have been using it for over two years now and we all enjoy it. It is very convenient, I don’t have to bother with a punch card and there is no need to carry around a separate ID card. The entire process is simple.

The time clock itself hooks up to a computer. Our accounting department is able to export the logged data from the time clock and use it for payroll purposes. It is very easy to do and “time worked” reports are very easy to generate. The Time Trax Bio can export data for use with ADP, Paychex, QuickBooks, Excel, and more.

The time clock can either be used on a flat surface (which is what we do) or be mounted to a wall. It is also available in a Serial/USB or an Ethernet version. The entire time clock is very small and compact.

Overall I enjoy using the Time Trax Bio and highly recommend it for use in just about any office or business. You will find the PTI Time Trax Bio here. You can find our entire selection of employee time clocks here.
