Looking for a Time and Attendance System? Here's everything you need to know
What Are Time and Attendance Systems?
Time and Attendance systems allow employees to clock in and out electronically via time clocks, internet-connected computers, mobile devices, and telephones.
The data is instantly transferred into software that can seamlessly import it into your payroll solution.
These systems do more than just track when employees come and go. They also:
Monitor mobile employees via geolocation and geofencing Give real-time data on who is working, who is not, who showed up late and who is nearing overtime Manage paid time off (PTO) Create employee schedules Provide detailed labor data
Time and Attendance systems offer employee self-service that allows them to handle many time-tracking tasks on their own, including reviewing the hours they've worked, current and future schedules, and PTO accruals.
Many are offered as cloud-based or on-premises solutions. The on-premises systems are stored on servers within your business, while the cloud-based systems are housed by your Time and Attendance System provider and accessed online.
