How uAttend works

uAttend is a market-leading cloud-based SaaS (Software as a Service) employee time and attendance management system. uAttend collects and processes real time clocking in data online, significantly speeding up and increasing the accuracy of payroll processing. uAttend enables organisations to manage holidays, sickness and overtime more efficiently – all in one smart system.

Cloud software offers flexible and affordable solutions which a growing number of organisations are tapping into. This means small (as well as large) organisations can benefit from the same functionality as the ‘big guys’ at a fraction of the cost – and without the IT hassle.

How uAttend works


uAttend is simple and easy-to-use

  • Say goodbye to timecards and spreadsheets. No need for any manual data entry or processing, it’s all done for you by the uAttend software.
  • Real time data from clocking in terminals, phone, smartphone and web clocking is sent to your uAttend cloud account.
  • There’s no software to install.
  • Clocking in data is stored and processed securely ‘in the cloud’.
  • Handles any number of employees and locations.
  • Managers and supervisors can log in to a uAttend online account from anywhere in the UK (or around the world), using PCs, Macs, tablets and smartphones.
  • View and manage real time, time and attendance data 24/7, 365 days a year.

Getting started is easy – choose how you want employees to clock in and sign up for a uAttend online account.

A choice of clocking in options

Unlike some cloud-based time and attendance systems uAttend offers a range of clocking in options. You can choose one or a combination of clocking in options to suit the way your business works. The system does all the hard work of bringing the data together for you so you can view and manage it through one easy-to-use web interface.

  • Clocking in with terminals: Options include biometric fingerprint and face recognition terminals; temperature scanning units, RFID swipe card and proximity fob terminals. Choose from either wired (plugged into your network) or WiFi. Find out more
  • Phone and smartphone clocking in: Using PIN numbers and geolocation give greater flexibility if you have staff out on customer premises, on construction sites, etc. The free smartphone app is available to download for both iPhone and Android. Phone clocking | Smartphone app clocking
  • Employee Self-service web clocking in: Using a PC, Mac or tablet, employees can clock in remotely, request holidays and view timecards. Web clocking in

Decide how you want staff to clock in, uAttend takes the data from all the options and aggregates it in your online account for you and colleagues to view, manage and run reports.
