FAQs

Can I buy uAttend clocking in machines from Costco without the cloud software system?

The clocking in machines have been designed to work exclusively with the uAttend cloud-based software system. Each machine comes with a lifetime guarantee, if it goes wrong and is not repairable, we will replace it free of charge. The software does all the hard work so you don’t have to. Data is collated and ready to export to payroll and uAttend provides other reporting that saves time and helps your business run more smoothly.

Why is there a monthly subscription?

You’ll find that the majority of cloud-based SaaS services are based on a monthly subscription. As part of the subscription the software is updated (you don’t have to do anything or pay extra for upgrades). Your data is stored securely in the cloud and staff can access it 24/7 wherever they’re based. And unlike a mobile phone contract where you pay a monthly service fee, you are not tied in to a uAttend contract. You can start and stop collecting clocking in data whenever you want to, for example some of our customers employ seasonal workers or run construction projects which last for a finite period. Sign up to uAttend at the special Costco membership rates

Can I use uAttend with Macs and iPads?

Yes. Unlike some clocking in solutions uAttend can be used with Macs and PCs. Using a browser or the free smartphone app you and your staff can use a wide range of devices to access uAttend in the office, on-site and on the move.

Does uAttend manage shift and rota planning?

uAttend isn’t currently able to offer full shift management and rota planning capability. However, our Chronologic time and attendance software suite is designed to manage shift planning and more complex shift patterns – get in touch if you would like to find out more.
