The end of Daylight Saving Time is looming over us (Nov 4), threatening the dread and discomfort of climbing up and down ladder rungs resetting clocks one hour behind. The annual autumn ritual presents a horrific operational challenge for organizations with wall clocks strewn about a facility, not to mention putting your personnel at risk of falling off a ladder.
Countless businesses suffer the same fate, 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 a grueling 5 to 30 minutes to reset each clock, depending on complexity. Multiply that time by 100 or more clocks and it winds up costing a monstrous pile of money in maintenance expense each and every year. It's a dreadful job that can't be delayed, and resetting clocks by hand, and getting them all synchronized, is nearly next to impossible.
Eliminate Manual Time Changes
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 springing 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.
Get More Out of Your Time
Synchronized clocks go beyond solving the ills of Daylight Saving Time changes. 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).
Escape the horrors of Daylight Saving Time. Stay safe, and save time, angst and money with Synchronized Clocks.
