Wednesday, November 16, 2011 FingerTec 3 Comments

FingerTec’s TimeTec Trial Version is intended to allow FingerTec’s resellers as well as end-users to test out TimeTec before actually making a purchase. The trial version is strictly accessible to FingerTec’s Authorized Resellers & Distributors, and End-Users of FingerTec only.
 
 
Update: We will no longer be offering TimeTec Web Trial. Please proceed to TimeTec Cloud page for the 30-days FREE Trial version.

The instructions below are intended to help you understand the workflow, types of testing environment and what you need to prepare before you start the test. 

FINGERTEC MODELS THAT SUPPORT TIMETEC
You will need to connect the FingerTec terminal to the TimeTec server in order to test it. The list of models that are compatible with TimeTec are as below: 
  • Black and white display models: R2, TA103 series, TA103R series.

Once you've determined your FingerTec model, you’ll need to provide us with the terminal’s information so that we are able to prepare a customized TimeTec firmware.

We will prepare the TimeTec Trial Product Activation Key for the test unit to connect to the TimeTec server.

TESTING PLATFORMS
We provide 2 types of TimeTec Trial platform:
Platform 1: FingerTec TimeTec Online Test Server
Platform 2: Download, install and test TimeTec at your own server. 

To find out which platform suits you the best, view the below brief descriptions.


Platform 1: FingerTec TimeTec Online Test Server (Recommended for end-users or resellers/distributors without a physical server)
FingerTec provides a free testing server located at http://www.timetec.co. TimeTec is installed at the testing server and readily available for approved users. 
   
Learn the benefits of using the FingerTec TimeTec Online testing server! Tapping on FingerTec TimeTec Onlne Testing Server, you can experience TimeTec without having to install it and MySQL database. It is cost-free and hassle-fee test without having to setup any physical server or buy any static IP address. However, the only downside of using Platform 1 is that users cannot view the MySQL database to see TimeTec’s data structure. This is important if you are going to integrate payroll or 3rd party HR software into TimeTec. For this, you'll need Platform 2.
