Turn Your Telephone Into a Time Clock
- nettime solutions staff
The telephone is an awesome device, capable of advanced time and attendance functions. But wait, are we talking about an actual PHONE? Surely we mean some cool app for a smartphone… Nope. We are talking telephony, Alexander Graham Bell-style.
Contrary to popular belief, the landline telephone is not stuck in the 1990s –– at least not when it’s integrated with a cloud-based time and attendance software platform. In fact, with sophisticated software based in the cloud, your landline users can be just as “mobile” as your fancy gadget employees.
A telephony feature is the right solution for off-site employees working at locations without Internet service. Using a landline or cell phone, the integrated voice recognition (IVR) prompts callers to enter their clock in and clock out data –– just like an employee time clock.
Your employees can even perform other time and labor functions over the phone, such as:
- Transfer labor hours
- Submit time sheets
- Check benefit accrual balances
- Review hours worked
The information is then made available on the Manager Dashboard. And, as a secure feature, managers can define which phone numbers employees are allowed to call from.
