Time and Attendance App – is your business missing out?
Chances are by now your business has a time and attendance method in some form or another. But are you using a Time and Attendance App yet? If not why not?
Time and attendance has come a long way from bundy clocks and paper timesheets.
Thanks to today’s connected world, we can clock in, request holiday, track hours in departments and much more all with a few clicks of a button.
So why then are many businesses still spending money on on-premise software or expensive hardware to log employee hours?
We go over many of the reasons in our ultimate time and attendance guide. However, today, we wanted to dive solely in on the aspect of App clocking.
Clocking in and out with an App
Obviously, you know what works for your business. Depending on your size, the processes you already have in place and more.
With more workers than ever working remotely however, having a remote clocking option is making more and more sense to a host of organisations.
Not only does App clocking reduce the spread of germs, as each employee has their own personal clocking method. But it also reduces the cost of clocking hardware on the employer’s side.
Other benefits of App clocking include:
Reduce manual errors
Saves your company time and money. No more guesswork on hours and no more shift of blame. Employees are responsible for clocking themselves in and out in order to be paid.
With accurate and exact payroll, you also increase employee satisfaction and productivity.
For Working Time Regulations and break compliance you may need to prove hours and keep clocking data secure.
Clocking via an app ensures that employees clocking data is secure via the cloud and can even track workers locations at the point of clocking.
For disciplinary or tribunal cases, app clocking can also ensure information is available for all parties. We suggest also ensuring this information is available in your time and attendance policy.
A good time and attendance system will have an admin version of the app to ensure managers have full oversight of their workers.
Not only can they clock employees in or out, but they can view holiday requests, see timesheets and more.
