Why card punching is so last season...
Businesses are constantly on the lookout for ways to improve their current processes. Improving their more routine practices means better productivity, a more streamlined workflow and happier employees.

In this modern age, no monetary value can be placed on your time, as it seems to be the one commodity that no one can trade or sell. With time clock software you can not only start saving yourself copious amounts of time, but money as well, thereby increasing your output and maximizing the productivity of your workplace.

If you’re looking for a simple solution, which enables you to monitor your employee’s time in and out of the office, or you’re a bigger corporation that has complicated overtime requirements, time clock software works for you.

Paper time cards and manual time clocks are a thing of the past since the birth of the time clock calculator, which provides a virtual interface for the users to work within. Much like the antiquated time clock, time clock software allows users to log in securely by using their assigned identification code as well as their unique PIN. When a staff member arrives at work, they log in and their virtual time card will receive a time stamp, much like a paper time card would.

The difference being however, that a mechanical time clock is subject to manipulation. Employees have become wise to the fact that the actual time on the time clock can be adjusted to reflect them having come in to work on time when in reality, they were late. Time clock software subverts these problems by automatically checking an employee in and preventing unauthorized changes to the schedule without the approval of the administrator.

Whether you realize it or not, these small changes will start saving you money instantly. Missed punches and longer than scheduled breaks account for a large amount of the revenues you put towards wages being lost. You may even find that with the money you save, you finally have the ability to hire on an assistant or a new supervisor.

Real-time updating will let you know when and where your employees are at any given point in the day. Time clock software has the capacity to show you if an employee clocked in late, on time, or even not at all.

You can forget about having to sift through paper time cards in an effort to amalgamate your operating expenses into a spreadsheet document, as the time clock calculator will do this for you. You will get a detailed analysis of hours worked by department as well as a comprehensive breakdown of overtime hours, so you can ensure that your staff members are scheduled accordingly.

It has never been easier to make great gains in the productivity of your small or large business. Time clock software offers employers the ultimate solution in flexibility and long-terms savings and is an incredible asset for any department.
