The truth is, even in today’s business world, where certain segments seem dominated by news of an ‘always on’ culture, adopting and training on new technology can be daunting for plenty of employees.

Improve Labor Management & Achieve Operational Transparency

Like many things in manufacturing, automation is key to maintaining a successful workflow. However, automation isn’t consistently implemented for all processes across the warehouse. As a result, bottlenecks can occur and negatively affect labor productivity levels.
Paper Time Cards
One example of a classic bottleneck is paper time cards. If a manufacturing company has 100 employees working within an 8-hour shift, that’s approximately 400 punches to manually enter and keep track of per shift rotation. And that only accounts for a few instances; clock in, clock out and lunch breaks.
If your warehouse offers a 15-20 minute break twice a day, as well as a 30 minute lunch break, that number increases to 800 hundred punches per day. Going off of a 2-week payroll period, that’s approximately 8000 manually entered punches.
Imagine how much time and energy goes into processing all of that data, especially if one person is doing it, which is often the case. Regardless of industry or function, the margin for error increases along with the workload given to an employee.
If you could reduce this risk for your team and your company, wouldn’t you do it?
Here are three simple examples of how replacing old, paper-based systems with cloud-based time and attendance software can improve your workforce management systems.
- Time is tracked in real–time; updates are made instantaneously to employees’ time off accruals. This allows managers to review and approve time off requests immediately using information that accurately reflects accruals.
- Time is captured down to the second at the assigned pay rate. Hence, if an employee works even one hour of overtime your Payroll team has the accurate records for payroll tax.
- Automatic software integration with HR and Payroll systems eliminates the need for redundant manual entries of reports.
