On-Premise or Off-Premise?
Currently, Chronicle has been designed to be either on or off-premise. This means the product can be hosted in the cloud (Azure) or installed on your server. There are some fundamental differences with the Software Hardware, Services and Support being offered. Why not contact us for an impartial discussion around the most appropriate solution?
Biometric or Proximity?
If you work a 24hr 7 day a week operation and employees are working remotely or unsupervised then biometrics is highly recommended to avoid buddy clocking or ghost employees. Proximity, however, is still very popular as its is simple and easy to implement and robust in the most extreme environments.
Chronicle customers can purchase outright or on a lease-purchase scheme.
Chronicle will install both the hardware and software for you.
Chronicle provides full user training covering everything from clocking in and out to roster changes and report running.
We offer all types of support from phone to site visit.

Chronicle can provide a payroll export in any format at any time with any combination of data that is required. We have worked with in-house payroll teams and bureaux before.
Holiday Sickness and Absence entitlement?
Tracking Holiday SIckness and Absence is a challenge in any business. Chronicle aims to make this easier with an unlimited number of holiday sickness and absence types able to be tracked paid or unpaid. Rule engines can calculate Holiday Sickness and Absence entitlement based on worked hours and there is a full suite of reports providing users with valuable management information.

Is the software easy to use?
Chronicle has been designed with end-users in mind. Our priority is to provide a simple and easy to use workforce management product that doesn't take weeks to learn how to use.
I have very specific working rules?
That's absolutely fine, as part of our Pre Sales consultation and project process all variations and uniqueness of 'rules' will be accounted for and our in-house team of configuration engineers will set up your solution. You also have the peace of mind that we develop Chronicle in-house so if anything comes up that is unusual we can have our in-house Development team adjust the working logic around you and your business.

Can I use my old clocking terminals?
