Why Your Industry Might Need Automated Time and Attendance
If your company employs hourly workers who are spread across various worksites or travel to multiple locations, you know the struggle of manual time tracking. You’re constantly hit with rising labor expenses due to time rounding, paper time card processing, and the inability to accurately track employee time worked. By making the switch to an automated time tracking system, your business can combat the costs that come with a distributed workforce. Whether you are in the healthcare, staffing, hospitality, or business services industry, you know all about the need to keep margins low. And manual time tracking might be getting in your way.
3 Reasons You Should Make the Switch to an Automated Time Tracking System
1. Hourly Employees are difficult to track.
It isn’t always easy keeping up with your distributed workforce, especially when they have different pay rates at various work sites. It can also get tricky when you factor in overtime rules, union contracts, or shift differentials. Manual time tracking just can’t handle the complexity of your workforce. With an automated time tracking solution, you can track employee time and attendance, manage flexible pay rules and maintain compliance with little to no work on your end.
2. Manual time tracking lacks real time visibility
When your employees are spread across different locations, you need to the ability to keep up with your business in real-time. An automated time and attendance system can track job information over all of your company’s locations. A system with real time alerts can inform a supervisor if a project doesn’t have enough workers or an employee is about to head into overtime. This gives you more visibility into your business and allows you to fix problems proactively—something a paper time sheet definitely cannot do.
3. Processing paper time cards costs you time and money.
With manual time tracking, the preparation of each time card costs your company money. Aside from the potential for human error, you have to pay employees to prepare each card. By switching to an automated time keeping system, the cost of manual preparation is eliminated.
