Time and attendance

Employee Time & Attendance, tracking, payroll and more

Whether you're looking to reduce payroll processing time, ensure workforce transparency, keep up-to-date with employee absence or more, a time and attendance system can help.

Long gone are the days of paper clocking, too often lost or forged. Modern T&A software is reliable, cost-effective and efficient.

Most importantly, your work tracking method will be user-friendly, and available no matter what size your business is.

Time and Attendance digital time tracking

What is time and attendance?

Time and attendance is when an employer tracks and monitors when employees start and stop work.

By monitoring working hours, employers gather data on time worked, labour costs, lateness, time theft, time taken on breaks, holiday management and much more.

Time and attendance can be gathered manually (via paper timesheets), or by digital methods, such as via phone, app, biometric terminals or the web.

Since the late 2000s, Software as a Service (SaaS) providers have become the leading time and attendance software choice. These cloud-based systems automatically turn your clocking data into actionable insight which appears in real-time on your account.

What are the benefits?

As well as a host of functionality designed to give your managers insight, time and attendance management will give you the true scope of your workforce optimisation.

Data from break times, absence, scheduling and more are all available to view 24/7, meaning when you need to make decisions, you can see the impact instantly. Other benefits include:

Streamlining the payroll processing

Take the pain out of payroll. Your pay rules and overtime rates are added in real-time based on employee clocking times.

It's therefore easy for supervisors to check and approve online timecards and there's even a clear audit trail to see who edited and OK'd them.

Your payroll process is now a simple one-click .CSV export to your payroll provider's software and uAttend is compatible with most payroll software systems.

Work tracking data

To track employee time and attendance, you need to be able to accurately track hours.

Our system, uAttend, offers six easy ways for employees to clock in/out, including our robust biometric clocking-terminals which prevent staff 'buddy clocking' and our new facial recognition temperature scanners, which help keep your workforce safe.

You can also track remote workers with our free smartphone geolocation clocking app. Remember, accurate clocking data means fewer staff queries about hours worked, and a reduced wage bill!

Biometric clocking - attendance management

Staying on top of staff holiday, sickness and other absence

You and your employees can now keep on top of holidays taken, sickness and other absence, without even thinking about it.

Managers and supervisors can view who's absent and why, and employees can see their sickness and holiday totals on their employee timecard.

Holidays can even be requested by staff online and managers can simply approve or decline easily.
