Replacing Your Paper Time Clock Card System

With personal computers becoming less and less expensive and old models usually left unused there’s no reason to not put these machines to a useful purpose. One great use is to replace your paper based time clock card system with an electronic time clock system such as Time Clock MTS. Time Clock MTS will run on pretty much any computer from the last several years and give you a time clock card system that is far superior to older manual paper based systems. You can collect your time and attendance information at many locations but automatically store it in one data store for easy and instant payroll reporting. Time Clock MTS will do all of your overtime calculations and your payroll calculations using your rules in just seconds and without error. The software contains a number of security features that will help to minimize or eliminate the problems experienced with older manual systems. Employees can no longer manipulate their time card information manually and buddy punching is largely eliminated. TimeClock MTS  replaced our old punchcard system, and we find that it is a great replacement.  Even our handyman, who we had to teach how to click a mouse, has no problem using this simple tool.

Windows Vista Time Clock

Did you know Time Clock MTS is 100% compatible with the new Microsoft operating system Windows Vista? Vista brings all sorts of new features to the Windows user and Time Clock MTS operates happily with all of them. The one and only difference with the Vista Time Clock MTS is where the software stores it’s configuration files and the default database location. In Windows XP all of the program data was stored in this directory: C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Time Clock MTS\ Windows Vista changes the location where program data is stored and when using Time Clock MTS on Windows Vista you’ll find all of your program information here: c:\Program Data\Time Clock MTS\ That’s really all there is to know about Vista and Time Clock MTS, just download and install Time Clock MTS onto Vista as normal from our website and you’ll be up and running in no... read more

Online Time Clock MTS is Coming Soon

The real benefit of time clock software lays in the productivity savings you gain from gathering and processing time and attendance information efficiently, and the costs savings you gain from removing employee fraud and calculation errors. Time Clock MTS gives you these benefits in one simple to use piece of software, given that you want to collect all of your information on the one network and using MS Windows based PC’s. However, if you have geographically separated locations or dont run MS Windows based PC’s then it’s a little more difficult to use Time Clock MTS. You can use it through the use of remote desktop tools (such as Windows Terminal Services) and Windows emulators (such as WiNe) but these add a layer of complexity that is not really desirable. The best solution to these problems is by the use of an online time clock. I’m happy to announce that the online version of Time Clock MTS is under development and will be released within the next 12 weeks. Online Time Clock MTS is a completely hosted solution (we hold all your information and host the software) meaning you don’t need to install anything on your PC’s. All you’ll need to do is log into your Online Time Clock MTS account and clock in and out, run reports, and configure the software in the same way you do now with the desktop version. And this can be done from anywhere, using any computer that has a web browser! Stay tuned, I’ll be posting screenshots here as they become available. Update: Online Time Clock MTS is now... read more

Deleted Time Clock Employees

Time Clock MTS allows you to track attendance of employees that work for you. However, as employees leave your organization you may wish to either delete or deactivate an employee’s record in Time Clock MTS. You may want to do this to declutter the employee list or to prevent the employee from recording any more attendance information. When you Deactivate an employee you can Reactivate the employee while logged in as the administrator and using the Employee Maintenance->Re-Activate An Employee menu item. However, when you Delete an employee there’s no way of undeleting that employee from within Time Clock MTS. However, the deletion is not permanent. The actual employee data and all of their employee attendance information is actually still present in the Time Clock MTS database. All you need to do is email us your Time Clock MTS database and let us know which employee you want undeleted. We’ll do it for you and email your database promptly and you’ll find that the employee record is now visible... read more
