If you’re considering purchasing and using employee clock-in software then you need to ask yourself the following questions:
- Is it Simple to Use?: It doesn’t matter how you paint it, employee time tracking and timesheets are not fun, they are necessary but not something anyone actually wants to do. And given an opportunity your employees will use any excuse avoid clocking in or out as they must. So any employee clock-in software you choose must be extremely simple to use from the employee’s point of view or you’ll have a constant battle with them to even collect their attendance data.
- Does it Fit Your Business?: The employee time clock software you choose must have sufficient flexibility to suit your business and the way you work. It should fit seamlessly within your organization and go about it’s work with a minimal amount of fuss. To achieve this it must provide flexibility in terms of reporting, vacation and sick time accruals, overtime calculations, and be secure.
- Is it Timely and Accurate?: A key failing of manual or paper based employee clock in systems is that the information is often neither timely nor accurate. Employees are prone to making poor estimations of the time of their arrival at work and manually processing and tallying paper timesheets is both time consuming and prone to error. The employee clock in software you choose must collect attendance data using an accurate clock, record it immediately to a central database and that data must be available at all times for accurate reporting.
