You can’t manage what you can’t see. For employers managing a mobile, distributed workforce, that’s always been a key challenge.
EPAY’s cloud-based time and attendance system is designed to help employers better manage a decentralized workforce. And with Blueforce7, our new system release, we’re giving employers even greater clarity into workforce activity, which translates to greater control.
First, we redesigned our user interface, simplifying both the dashboard and navigation, so it’s quicker and easier to use. Plus, each user can custom-configure his or her dashboard, setting personal display preferences.
From this launch pad, employers gain unprecedented real-time visibility into daily workforce activity, labor costs, productivity and more. For example, you can:
Track payroll dollars as they accrue – Using Blueforce7’s, budgeting feature, you can view labor costs by site and by task, ensuring expenses, earnings and productivity are aligned.
View work schedules from various perspectives – Thanks to Blueforce7’s scheduling module, you can review schedules by employee, by task, and by shift. You can tweak schedules on the spot, reallotting resources as needs change.
Stay ahead of potential compliance issues – Is an employee skipping meal breaks? Is a new supervisor making unauthorized changes to timesheets? Blueforce7 will flag these missteps in real-time, so you can take corrective action before bigger problems arise.
Create custom real-time alerts – When your managers set up custom alerts, they can “see” what’s going on remotely. For example, the system can alert them when employees approach overtime hours or when someone fails to clock-in as scheduled. Alerts are delivered by email and/or text.
Of course, to take advantage of these features, you must be able to track time and attendance for your entire workforce. That’s another EPAY strength. With our mix and match data collection methods, we can track 100% of your people, no mattered how mobile or scattered. These methods include biometric time clocks, telephone time tracking, online time tracking, and—most significantly here—our mobile time tracking app with GPS.
Visibility To Go: Mobile Time Tracking
EPAY’s Mobile PunchTM time tracking app has features you won’t find elsewhere. In addition to capturing time and GPS coordinates from any smartphone or tablet, it can:
- Allow employees to track completed tasks, mileage, tips, work orders and more, keeping managers on top of daily activity.
- Use Geotracking technology to automatically capture employee location at defined intervals throughout the work day.
- Use Geofencing technology to flag—or even punch out—employees who leave designated work zones without clocking out.
- Give employees access to their schedules and PTO balances and even request paid time off.
- Collect punches or task data with a bar code or QR code scanner.
- Require workers to take a ‘selfie’ when they clock in or out, deterring buddy punching.
In short, when you pair Mobile Punch with Blueforce7, you’ll take mobile workforce management to a whole new level of visibility and control. Ready to learn more? Watch our video demo.
