From banks and offices to clinics and agencies, your customers, clients, and patients all demand instant access to information. Your employees are no different. In fact, a cloud-based time and attendance software –– with employee self-service features –– greatly increases employee engagement.
A cloud-based time and attendance software has flexible options to meet the needs of different office environments. Your employees also receive cutting-edge tools to manage their time way beyond the boundaries of a paper timecard –– such as the ability to:
Clock in, in under 2 seconds from a web kiosk.
“Enter ID, Clock In/Out.” The simple, yet secure interface of employee time clock software helps your employees stay focused on being productive, not looking for misplaced timesheets.
Check the Employee Dashboard.
With real-time updates, employees can check schedules and time off accruals, as well as make time off requests. Your employees are already used to the speed and convenience of conducting business online (checking bank account balances, booking flights). The Employee Dashboard is a natural fit for their expectations.
Optimize workforce mobility.
A mobile time and attendance software is available for smartphone users. With an Internet connection, off-site employees can clock in/out from authorized locations. They can also check PTO balances and make time off requests. This ease of time management is essential for:
- Sales associates who are visiting prospects and closing new deals
- Service technicians who are in transit from account to account
The telephone is a viable, alternative solution for employees working at job sites with no Internet connection. An example of this could be:
- Healthcare attendants visiting patients in their homes
- Mortgage brokers visiting the land site for a new construction build
- Catering staff setting up an estate’s great lawn
