        Subject:        Looking for an AS/400 Timeclock solution

        My organization needs to implement a timeclock system to eliminate
the
        current paper process used by part-time staff and all student
workers. 
        A lot of individual departments are looking at standalone PC clock
        systems and of course they all found a different version that they
like.
         I have been asked to find a single system that will provide campus
wide
        timeclock solution.

        Our environment is....
        AS/400 720 - lots of spare disk and CPU time - 2 100MB ethernet NICs
        25+ Novell Netware Servers for email, file and print sharing
        Full campus wide ethernet network (including 3 remote sites)
        AS/400 and Netware servers share data via FTP controlled from the
        AS/400
        LAWSON Payroll
        All employees and students have mag stripe and bar-coded id cards
        8 In-house AS/400 experienced programmers and technical staff.

        I believe the best solution would be ethernet connected mag stripe
        readers for timeclocks that can do immediate relay to the AS/400 or
        store local for later transmission in case the AS/400 is down for
        backup/upgrade and the rare but happen repairs.  With management
        applications on the AS/400 to allow review, supervisor approval,
        reporting and transfer into our LAWSON Payroll.

        Has anyone out there implemented this type of system and if so how
did
        you do it and what hardware/software do you use ?
