Synchronized clocks within hospitals, schools, offices, warehouses, and other facilities are essential.

Atomic clocks, given their well-deserved reputation for accuracy, are often considered. However, atomic time has some drawbacks, especially if trying to outfit a larger facility with synchronized clocks.
