What is Time Wolf Scout?

Time Wolf Scout is a biometric hand geometry reader that interacts with TimeWolf's automated time and attendance software. TimeWolf 4.0 is capable of time tracking, calculating standard rules (breaks, overtime, vacation, holidays, exceptions, etc.), generating detailed reports and exporting time and attendance data to most payroll applications. Simply Stated: Time Wolf Scout 4.0 is the latest in Time & Attendance technology that can automate your labor management process while saving you time and money.

Company Policies

Time Wolf Scout 4.0 is designed for single or multiple policy settings. It delivers the flexibility for intricate company configuration, while maintaining simplicity for businesses with fewer needs.

With Time Wolf Scout 4.0, you can easily assign policies to new employees with customized rules. You can also set the Time Wolf System to recognize how long the employee has been with the company and to change policies automatically the longer they have been with the company. Time Wolf Scout 4.0 lets you easily set break times, early, late and on time grace periods to your company’s specifications. Time Wolf is even capable of auto deducting lunches or breaks based on time worked. Time Wolf Scout 4.0 also uses departments, where you can have an unlimited amount of departments and organize work hours by having employees change department.


With Time Wolf Scout 4.0, tracking overtime has never been easier. Calculate overtime by day, week or both. Time Wolf Scout 4.0 also gives you the ability to let supervisors approve or deny overtime automatically or manually.

Sick / Vacation / Holiday

Time Wolf Scout 4.0 allows you to enter your own accrual formulas. Employees gain accrued vacation and/or sick days based on actual hours worked and the rules you specify. Time Wolf 4.0 is also equipped to handle holidays. Meaning you can insert specified paid holidays. Time Wolf Scout 4.0 even lets you set “worked holiday rate” to track those employees who work on the specified holidays at special rates.

Manager & Employee Modules

Time Wolf Scout 4.0, comes in two different modules: the Employee module and the Manager Module. Supervisors and administrators will use the manager module to set up policies, rules and to track and make changes to time cards, reports and other company rules. The manager module also allows administrators to set security access for supervisors and managers. Meaning, you have the ability as an administrator to allow supervisors or managers to open the manager module to make changes to timecards but not see social security numbers, wages etc. Time Wolf Scout 4.0 gives the administrators all the control…peace of mind included. 

The employee module is where employees clock in and out. A very simple to use interface directs employees to enter their username and password, so that they can clock in/out. Supervisors also have the ability to allow employees to view and print specified reports from the employee module.

Automatic Backups

The automatic backup feature creates a copy of all primary data files on scheduled intervals. This feature provides added security of collected data, should primary data files become lost or corrupted.

The Scout Overview

The Scout is good for companies that have small, large or multiple locations or minimal supervision that leaves opportunity for time theft and buddy punching.

The Time Wolf Scout Hand Geometry reader brings the flexibility of a full function time and attendance terminal together with the sophistication of the most accurate identification technology available. 

Using field-proven biometric technology, the Time Wolf Scout Hand Geometry reader uses the size and shape of the user's hand to verify their identity each time they use the terminal. This practical and precise solution makes card-based systems obsolete. 

The hand reader is very durable and capable of withstanding harsh conditions. Enclosures for cold, wet and dry environments are available.

How it Works

The user friendly menus make the Time Wolf Scout very easy to use. From the menu, users are able to quickly choose activities they want to complete. The user can transfer departments, enter tips, etc. The menu walks the user through the entire process.

The reader is equipped with an infrared camera that takes a three dimensional image of the user’s hand each and every time the user accesses the terminal. The image of the user’s hand is then compared to the previous hand scan and based on a computer algorithm, the machine determines whether or not the hands are the same. The ability to compare scans from day to day compensates for any weight gain or loss that occurs over a period of time.

At the time of the hand scan, the time and date of the event is stored into the internal memory. That data is then sent to the Time Wolf Time and Attendance System where it is scanned for exceptions, generated into reports and then passed on to payroll for check processing
