Time and Attendance

What is a Time & Attendance System?

A time and attendance system is a comprehensive tool that allows you to track employee hours automatically, manage time sheets effectively eliminating the need for manual time sheets. This not only saves time but also significantly increases accuracy. The software is capable of logging hours worked, overtime, breaks, and leave, which is crucial for accurate payroll data processing.

By automating employee attendance management, you can streamline administrative tasks, improve efficiency, and ensure accurate payroll data calculations. It also provides better transparency for both you and your employees regarding attendance-related information.

uAttend's Time and Attendance features include:


  1. Time Tracking and Management: uAttend tracks employee hours, including regular hours, overtime, and paid time off. It also supports customisable pay rules to accommodate complex pay structures and overtime calculations.
  2. Overtime Calculation: You can automatically calculate overtime hours based on predefined rules, such as the number of hours worked in a day or week that exceed regular working hours or specific thresholds.
  3. Holidays & Absence Management: The software enables employees to request time off directly through the system, which supervisors can review and approve. The software keeps track of approved leaves and its impact on employee attendance and payroll.
  4. Integration with Payroll: Our software integrate with payroll software, allowing seamless transfer of attendance and work hour data for accurate and efficient payroll processing.
  5. Mobile Access: Our software offers a mobile app designed to provide employees with convenient access to their time and attendance information. The app can use the smartphone's GPS capabilities to verify your employee's location, when clocking in and out.
  6. Reporting and Optimising: You can generate various reports and analytics related to employee attendance, working hours, overtime, and other relevant data. These reports can help you optimise staffing costs, monitor attendance trends, and ensure compliance with employment laws and regulations.
