Getting payroll processed smoothly and promptly is a priority, period. But for many employers, it’s also a stressful, laborious process every single pay period.
Why? Typically because time and attendance records need continued attention. For employers using manual time sheets, this translates to hours of data entry and manual verification.
While employers using automated time tracking systems don’t have to deal with that, the issue of open punches is the major holdup. First, the administrative staff pours over the system to identify open punches, which aren’t easy to find. Then, they reach out to appropriate field managers to track down the missing information. That info then must be input into the system. Even with automation, that’s plenty of hands-on work.
EPAY’s cloud-based time and attendance system is designed to help employers with a decentralized workforce overcome these kinds of challenges. And Blueforce7, our new system release, is designed to help employers do everything faster, including processing payroll.
4 Ways Blueforce7 Helps Your Process Payroll Faster
It’s faster to learn and use – When redesigning our user interface, we simplified the dashboard and streamlined navigation, so it takes fewer clicks to get where you need to go. So even if, say, some field managers don’t spend much time getting familiar with the system, they should be able to quickly review, complete and approve timesheets prior to payroll.
It clearly flags open punches – Our customers asked for this! We use a highly visible red/green/yellow color coding system, so punches that need attention are impossible to miss. And because Blueforce7 includes a scheduling module, managers can quickly reference an employee’s work schedule for a given day as a frame of reference.
It highlights problems as they occur – We’ve built features into Blueforce7 to help prevent some open punches from occurring. For example, managers can elect to receive real-time text or email alerts when employees fail to punch in as scheduled. Not only does this ensure ample coverage at a given worksite, it creates an on-the-spot record…no going back a week later to figure out what happened. In addition, our mobile time tracking app with GPS includes a Geofencing feature that automatically flags or even punches out employees who leave the designated work zone.
It integrates with payroll systems 3x faster than average – EPAY relies on a special integration tool called DEC to speed our implementation process. Not only does Blueforce7 integrate with any payroll system, it does so three times faster than the average ERP implementation, so you can be up and running faster. A slow implementation process is no longer a reason not to upgrade your time and attendance system!
