Executive summary

Since the establishment of time registration systems in 1888, it did not take very long before it became a standardized system in most businesses, varying from small to large organizations. It became very easy for employees to track the hours worked by their employees. It first started as inserting a paper card into a machine and developed into a digital tracking system with many more functions where weekly or monthly recordings are available. In the late twentieth century, time registration systems started to move away from the mechanical machines to computer based, electronic time and attendance systems. The employee either swipes a magnetic stripe card or scans a barcode.
