Find Out What Option is Best Suited for Your Business
Automated time tracking systems have revolutionized the way employees clock in and out for their work day. Time and attendance can be tracked through various methods, including biometric time clocks, on your smartphone, over the phone and on your computer.
With all the options available today, picking the time and attendance system that is best for you might seem daunting. There are a couple questions you can ask yourself to help decide what time and attendance system is best for your business. For example:
- Is your company working from a handful of different locations?
- Will your employees have access to a phone or computer?
Once you have answered these questions and understand your options in time and attendance, the right system will be a no-brainer.
Mobile Application Time Tracking
A mobile time tracking system can make punching in possible, even from the most remote worksites. With mobile time tracking, employees have the ability to download an app and turn their smartphones into a mobile time clock. Thus, even if you have on the go employees working from various locations, they can all clock in from wherever they are. Time and attendance information is then uploaded to a cloud based system, giving you access to information in real time.
Online Time Tracking
Do you have employees working from a computer? A computer time tracking system can give employees the ability to record their time without even leaving their computer. Employees will also have the ability to allocate their time to the projects they are working on. Time and attendance data is then stored in your time and labor management system.
Telephone Time Tracking
A phone system gives employees the opportunity to call a designated number to clock in. If your employees are working from various remote locations, all they need to clock in is a phone. Employees can call in to the same number from anywhere to record their time, and punch data will flow into one system.
Biometric Time Clocks
If you have multiple employees reporting to one location, biometric time clocks might be your best bet—especially in manufacturing or industrial environments. A biometric clock requires an employee to clock in using their fingerprint to help you eliminate buddy punching. Time clocks can also help improve employee engagement by giving employees the opportunity to see and print out their time sheets and pay stubs for the week.
