dst fall back

Daylight Saving Time will come to an end November 4th, and with it comes the unpleasant ritual of climbing up and down ladder rungs and manually resetting clocks one hour behind. The annual Fall event presents an unwelcome operational challenge for organizations with multiple clocks spread throughout a facility, not to mention putting personnel at risk of falling off a ladder. Thousands of businesses nationwide are burdened with spending hours of time, changing the hands of time, twice per year during Spring and Fall Daylight Saving Time adjustments. It takes a maintenance worker from 5 to 30 minutes to reset a clock, depending on complexity. Multiply that by 100 or more clocks and it winds up costing a company a scary amount of money in maintenance expenses every year. It's a job that can't be delayed, and resetting them by hand, and getting them all synchronized, is next to impossible.

Wireless synchronized clock systems take time changes off the to-do list by eliminating the need for manual time changes. These intuitive timekeepers automatically adjust for Daylight Saving Time, falling back one hour at the end of Daylight Saving Time, and spring ahead one hour when Daylight Saving Time begins each year. Wireless synchronized clocks receive an official time signal from a radio frequency transmitter, while IP Network clocks receive time over a local (LAN) or wide (WAN) network. The result-your business is ready for business as usual on Monday morning without ever touching a single clock.

Synchronized clocks go beyond Daylight Saving Time. Since every clock displays the same exact time over multiple departments and work stations, schedules are streamlined, people are punctual and processes are precise, creating efficiency, improving productivity and promoting employee accountability. It is estimated that a synchronized clock system can save an average of $500 per employee per year on top of annual Daylight Saving maintenance labor savings (assuming they make $15 per hour).

Don't be haunted by Daylight Saving Time. Stay safe, and save time, angst and money with Synchronized Clocks.
