Companies Can Gain More Than 60 Minutes During Daylight Saving Time Change

When clocks adjust automatically and display the same time year round, businesses can save thousands of dollars, increase productivity.

Dassel, Minn. (Oct. 27, 2014) — Daylight saving time ends Nov. 2 and many companies that operate around the clock will effectively gain an hour of productivity. That is, unless maintenance teams have to spend hours manually adjusting each clock. Companies can save a tremendous amount of money and increase productivity when all of the clocks in a building or across a campus show the same, precise time. 

When different clocks display different times in a building or across a campus, punctuality becomes an issue, workers can’t track their time correctly, and regulatory or insurance reporting can be inaccurate. With American Time clocks and timekeeping solutions – including battery and digital clocks, Wi-Fi network clocks, Power over Ethernet clocks and others – organizations can optimize the flow of occupants throughout a building and maintenance crews can turn their attention to other matters. 

Even a modest discrepancy among clocks can be an expensive mistake. For instance, if 50 employees who earn $15 per hour add an extra two minutes of breaks per day, the lost time would cost a company $19,500 per year.

“Daylight saving time can be a big headache for industries like manufacturing, health care, education and others because their clocks don’t update correctly or show the wrong times until someone gets around to adjusting them,” explained Dieter Pape, president, American Time. “At American Time, our clock and timekeeping solutions help companies set their clocks once and forget about them.”  

Synchronized clocks all show the same time and automatically update for daylight saving time changes twice per year. For even greater cost and labor savings, an American Time master controller communicates the scheduled on/off times to other systems within a building, such as HVAC, bells, security or lighting. 

Health care, manufacturing, education and government organizations turn to American Time to improve business operations, increase punctuality and to optimize the productivity of their workforce, students and patients.
