Quality management of time is one of the important factors of a successful business. However, no matter how much we are aware of it, we often forget about employee time and attendance schedules. That’s not surprising considering that until recently, we had to pile up papers and keep accurate records. Fortunately, today that job is much easier with the help of online tools that we can use simply.
Decades ago, working time records were kept manually, on paper – which was very complicated, and oversights and errors often occurred. However, the new era, modern technologies, and devices that support these technologies have made this job much easier for us. Until recently, we used programs such as Excel to manage employee attendance. However, modern trends have made even that technology “old-fashioned.” Today, we can easily manage employee time and attendance by simply using applications that have been developed for such a purpose.
We all know the saying that “time is money.” You can already have a clear idea of the importance of the efficiency and productivity of your employees. In addition, time planning has a significant impact on the quality of the work itself. That means more satisfied clients and thus higher profits. We don’t even have to mention the importance of inter-company organization. Just imagine you have dozens of employees whose work and shifts you need to monitor manually. It would be necessary for you to hire a bunch more people whose jobs would be just that. Therefore, advanced technology has helped to the extent that we can simply track everything using only employee time and attendance applications. With time-tracking tools like these, freelancers or small business owners can track and measure their work hours and overall productivity.
In recent years, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, even those who do not employ freelancers have been faced with the fact that many people have to work from home. Tracking the employee time and attendance for those who work outside the office or facility is extremely difficult without a mobile attendance system. This information is integrated with a time-honored payroll system, all powered by a global positioning satellite, commonly referred to as GPS, that almost every cell phone has today. Employers confirm their working hours based on data collected through GPS systems – so tracking is, in this case, very efficient.
The biggest problem for most companies is that until now, they had systems that were difficult to use. However, most new applications are easy to use and you can test the different features they offer. What is important to every employer is that the app works easily, seamlessly, and without interruptions in everyday working processes. Also, some apps have numerous functions that can make your administrative work much easier.
Therefore, if you have not yet included new technologies and apps of this type in your business – perhaps now is the right time to do so.
