Why are organizations so eager to leave manual time and attendance processes behind? Consider these 5 benefits of making the switch:
Humans are prone to error, even if we provide them with supporting computational devices. Automated attendance management systems ensure accurate time records and minimize the inevitable and costly errors with manual data entry. This accurate data thereby helps to provide accurate performance and payroll data.
2. Productivity / Efficiency
Monitoring and managing attendance manually can be a time-consuming, laborious, and expensive affair. It takes time to process paper sheets and time cards, create schedules, authorize leave and overtime, and create payroll manually. Free up precious administration time with an automated system that does it all for you, from keeping track of employee hours to automatically importing information into your payroll system. The time and effort saved combined with data accuracy helps in optimizing the use of resources which lead to increased productivity and improves profits.
3. Hassle Free Workflow Management
An integrated attendance management system can provide good visibility of all data and can ease the workflow of payrolls, leaves and performance reviews. Notifications/alerts are automated, and the manager can approve requests for early departure, overtime, etc., immediately without any specific need for communication. Forget the herculean task of manual scheduling. With just a few clicks, an automated attendance management system can help manage schedules, allocate work, and easily keep track of shift swaps. It can also help you to forecast workloads, resources, and budgets.
In today’s global, well-connected environment, you have employees working from office, from home, or at remote locations. An attendance management system allows organizations to track employee time using a variety of clocking options, such as smartphones, internet networks, swiping technologies, biometric terminals or desktop readers easily.
Most attendance management systems are built around highly secure systems and architecture. Specifically, biometric systems are highly reliable and secure and can help prevent time theft, buddy punching and reduce administrative costs stemming from forgotten PINs and lost ID cards. These systems are of particular utility to organizations where security is a primary concern.
