TimeClock Plus (TCP)

Miami University is in the process of switching to TCP from Kronos for our time keeping process. We are piloting TCP with a small group of departments, and more details will be available soon for departments not in the pilot program.

Frequently Asked Questions

When will employees begin logging in using TCP instead of Kronos?

Miami employees and students will receive instructions from their Supervisor on when they should start using TCP to clock in.

How can I clock in and out in TCP?

There are three ways to clock in and out in TCP

  • Using a browser on your computer. This can be done on any browser except for Safari.
  • Using the TCP mobile App. See instructions on downloading and setting up the app.
  • Using badge readers by tapping your ID Card.  The locations of badge readers will remain in the same locations as they are today.
  • NOTE: In TCP, you will not be able to clock in using a Cisco phone.

Why did Miami switch to TCP?

TCP is being implemented now for several reasons:

  • TCP is a cloud-based system providing better system performance and less down-time due to technical server issues.
  • All classified and student employees will have access to their timecards on a 24/7 basis.
  • TCP provides enhanced functionality and ease of use at a more competitive price compared to Kronos or other similar systems.
  • Our current Kronos system is an older version of their product and soon will no longer be supported by the vendor.

Who is TCP and why did Miami choose them for their timekeeping needs?

  • TCP provides time keeping systems that allow organizations the ability to collect time and load it into their system that process payrolls (in our case at Miami this is Banner). 
  • TCP has been providing timekeeping systems (time clocks, mobile apps, computer access, etc.) for xxx years and has a strong history of working with institutions of higher education and other public organizations. 
  • TCP lists over 1600 colleges and universities as clients many of whom also use Banner at their universities.
