What is the origin of the name "time clock"? It sounds redundant -- all clocks are for telling time! -- Jruderman (talk) 23:45, 5 December 2007 (UTC)

That's actually a very very interesting point. I had never noticed that before. --Yamara 15:25, 7 May 2008 (UTC)

In the UK IBM sold it's Time recording division to the employees. The company manufactured the 8000 series time clock at their works in Hammersmith, London. The first electronic time system was manufactured by the company and was called Kronos and was based on the 8000 series clocks. Later the company developed totally electronic system called Time Lord which could be stand-alone or computer linked. It could use time cards and or badges (credit card style cards)This was in the early 1970's. This was went on to be developed into access control and a number of other uses. the company went through a number of changes and some of these later developements were carried out under the name of TDSI (Time and Data Systems International) —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 00:32, 9 March 2010 (UTC)
