Understanding Time Attendance Systems

By: Paul

Employee Timesheet is a reason of worry for every HR and Payroll processing department from any industry. Whats there in a timesheet. Its just about an employees work timings. When an employee comes into the office he was told to make entry in a register, records of it goes into another. This was the basic concept earlier.

With evolution of technology and growing industry requirements, companies are hiring hundreds and thousands of new employees across the globe and management of registers were not possible at all. With this growing demand came in the supply from the technology side of the industry.

Now we have companies using installed softwares. The employee is subjected to a computer or an electronic device to punch in the attendance. This data automatically gets saved in the server database. Same happens for an employee to punch out. After both the entries are saved in the database server installed in the company premises, the software automatically calculates the salary to be paid according to the package the employee is hired into. So at the end of the month you have the system displaying you the end output in the form of hours worked and salary to be paid. All the mathematical calculations, making entries into different registers are automatically taken care of by the software.

For a few organizations that think beyond what we currently have are worried about maintaining the records backup if the server crashes.

With this fear came in a new service called On-Demand. In here the process of entering and retrieving data is the same, the only difference is the server is a hosted one. The service provider owns the server, manages it and takes care of the backup. This means every time you want to check the data, retrieve it, all you do is go to that particular url and login to the system for your requirements.
