We recently started using a bar code feature in the time clock software. Putting scan gun in the warehouse to clock employees in & out of each job. With so many different jobs going on at the same time and each job passing through several different hands through out its process. Bar coding, each job allows a machine shop employee to easily scan in & out of jobs quickly.
Just wanted to post a note about the payroll software that we have been using for the past 3 years and absoolutely love it. The name of the software is Timeclock MTS www.timeclockmts.com. We have the software loaded onto a computer located in the middle of our shop floor so it is easy to access for our employees to punch in and out on. The system is so much easier to use than the papter time clock system we were using. At the end of each week, I can easily review the hours each employee worked and run reports that make it easy for me to run the weekly payroll. The software is very inexpensive to purchase and the techical support has also been outstanding. So, if your company is still using a paper time clock system, you should take a serious look at using this software to replace it. You will be happy that you did so.
