Web Time Clocks Provide Benefits to Business Managers

Time clocks with punch cards were once the mainstream standard for tracking employee work hours, but these devices are quickly being phased out. Business owners and managers who need a more automated time clock system are finding benefit with web-based biometric fingerprint clocks. These time clocks require employees to punch in and out with a fingerprint rather than with a physical time card. This emerging technology has eliminated certain actions involving time card fraud, such as buddy punching and time card manipulation. Managers may have been aware that a certain amount of work-hour time theft was occurring, but they had no good way to stop these practices before biometric fingerprint time clocks were introduced.

Biometric Web Time Clocks provide a definitive convenience to business owners and managers by reducing labor costs and by improving attendance supervision, but they also provide convenience for the payroll department as well. Payroll managers can now keep track of each employee’s work hours without running around to track down time cards or timesheets, and without needing to keep extensive payroll records on their office computers. All time and attendance data that was once locked and stored in file folders somewhere on premise, is now stored in the cloud for instant access and retrieval.

The “cloud” refers to web-based data storage and applications that allow users to access data from any computer or mobile device without having to download special software. Web Time Clocks automatically mark and record work hours and then companies, such as uAttend for example, securely store this work hour data on remote servers. Since the data is stored in the cloud, it can be accessed by managers through an online account from any computer, laptop, tablet, Smartphone or mobile device. In other words, you no longer have to be in the office or on-site to access work hour information. You can view it in a web browser from any location with an Internet connection. This means a manager can monitor an employees’ punctuality and attendance even while he or she is out-of-town on business. You can check and see who is currently working, who was late, who left early, who is nearing overtime, what departments are short-staffed and even keep an eye on employees who historically have had problems with punctuality.

Using web-based, cloud technology to handle everything from attendance supervision to payroll means that your business does not need to buy expensive software or do complex installations and upgrades. There is also a savings on work space and supplies. Gone are the days of large, expensive servers that take up floorspace in the office and that require constant maintenance. Once a business embraces cloud-based time and attendance technology, the web-based data can be accessed regardless of where the business owner or manager happens to be. This is just one of the many benefits of a web time clock. If you’d like to learn more ways that web-time clocks can help your business, visit uAttend.com.
