Time and attendance software does a lot more than tell you who’s clocked in or out in real-time. Time and attendance software can also help you run instant fire roll calls, manage complex shift patterns, even identify much needed productivity gains.
Time and attendance data can be accessed locally or from the cloud by everyone from HR to busy receptionists needing to field important calls. Stored for 7 years, you can call on this data to deal with time claims from former workers or sub-contractors too. At the same time, there are a range of time-recording systems to choose from. Hi-tech biometric terminals are ideal for construction sites; but if your workers are on the move enabling them to clock in on their mobile phones is the smart choice.
To get the real-time time and attendance data you need, you first need the right data collection solution. Here are five clocking methods to consider:
Hand scanners, fingerprint readers, facial recognition: biometric clocking solutions are ideal for factory workers or contractors.
Indoor and outdoor terminals can be configured to accept company cards and fobs and are great for hospitality staff or carers.
Ideal for salespersons or delivery drivers on the go, mobile clocking includes the ability to track employee location too.
No hardware to install, employees like domestic cleaners clock in over a land line at a customer’s home.
Perfect for call-centre operatives or managers working from home, workers simply log in to clock in.
