Attendance Tracking Software & Labor Management issues

By: Shelly Makson

The fact is, that time is money in business and managing employees, their productivity and their attendance records can be a difficult proposition in the real world business environment. The traditional time clock has been the tool of choice for businesses for generations but it can only do one thing and that is to clock people in and then clock them out when they leave.

New time and attendance tracking software works the same as time clock but it does so much more than that. To begin with, it automatically keeps track of employee attendance patterns and will automatically notify management of any negative patterns that manifest themselves.

Also, new time and attendance tracking software can do other things that used to have to be done by an employee manager. Things such as automatically calculating wages and withholdings each week with the simple click of a mouse will save an untold amount of time for an employer that does his or her won payroll dismemberment and accounting.

Employees clock in on a computer using a password and the software does the rest. The software can also be used to determine actual labor costs on various projects if more than one project is being worked on during the day by an employee.

This also works well to eliminate the guesswork on labor costs when bidding on future projects as well. One other thing that time and attendance tracking software will do is that it will improve employee attendance and productivity just by virtue of the fact that it is in place.

Once this new system is in place there is no more need for a manager to play the bad guy with regards to attendance and productivity with employees, because the tracking software in itself does that job.
