Time and attendance is a broad term that incorporates a range of functions. Departments across businesses from HR to payroll are affected by it. The focus of time and attendance is on maintaining efficient, cost effective and productive workforces. Every business sees time and attendance as being an important factor in creating a profitable and streamlined enterprise.
As the workplace becomes more dynamic in the midst of technological revolution, maintaining an optimised workforce becomes ever more difficult. Mobile devices such as laptops and smart phones allow for work to occur outside of the physical office and beyond the normal working hours of the day. Many employees can now work from home, from remote offices and while they travel. Time and attendance software allows businesses to incorporate these diverse practices into their business models without incurring additional costs or reducing efficiency.
Time and attendance software enables employees to clock on from ordinary desktop workstations in the office, desktop workstations at remote offices, from laptops with web access and from mobile devices with web access such as Android, BlackBerry and iPhone. Purpose built mobile apps provide for streamlined time and attendance software.
Changes to the modern workplace mean that flexi-time work hours are increasingly common. While these are beneficial to both employers and employees they can result in increased complication of time and attendance recording which can in turn lead to additional costs. Time and attendance software provides businesses with an automated solution that removes unnecessary costs.
Automated employee schedule means costs are kept down and key HR and management staff can be redirected to focus on more critical business solutions. In the case where an unexpected schedule change may result in increased costs the time and attendance software can be set up to notify management of the impending cost increase.
