Is Online Time Attendance Good Enough!

By: Paul

When we talk about web based solutions in workforce management industry the first is time attendance. Lets walk through a few features of some of the solutions offered in the industry.

When an employee submits timesheet on-line the softwares pops up the same in the managers pending approval section to approve or disprove it. The good thing about the system is it has the timesheet description wherein the manager can describe the employees timesheet. With this the request shows the date it was submitted, the total hours worked by the employee. Also it has a date range section where the manager can view a particular employees timesheet from a date range. Interesting combination only when it suits your type of requirement.

Its wonderful, no register, no writing on a piece of paper, just type in a url, enter your username and password and press login. Thats how vendors provide time tracking systems.

Moving further ahead into another system, say, you entered your time regularly, took time off on some particular days, were absent on a few and this went on for months. Your timesheets are routed to your managers, approved and submitted regularly. One fine day the company administrator gets a mail from management to get a list of all employees absent for more than 7 days in last six months. Immediately after you complete reading the mail panic button is pressed and you don't know what to do. Some systems have this advanced feature where on click of some buttons similar reports can be generated easily, since they have all services integrated from within. Means timesheets, time off, absent records etc are all from the same database and generating a variety of reports from a variety of services is very much easier.

Now thats called technology...
