Advantages of uAttend Time Clock Software

If you are in charge of running a business, the last thing you want to worry about is constantly checking in on and keeping track of your employees’ time and attendance. The perfect solution to this all-too-common problem is to implement a uAttend Employee Management System. uAttend’s time clock software effectively helps businesses of all types and sizes cut down on costs, improve employee productivity and accurately record work hours for payroll. Below, we discuss three key benefits that these solutions offer.

Improve Level of Accuracy
Trying to keep track of your employees’ actual work hours using traditional time tracking methods such as a punch clock or paper timesheet is inefficient and often inaccurate. In fact, the many loopholes and limitations associated with these methods end up costing your company a good deal of money in the long run. On the other hand, studies have shown that many businesses see savings of as much as three to five percent on payroll expenses after the successful implementation of payroll time clock software.

Save Time
When you implement a system that is able to automatically track, record and store employee work hours and then automatically export these records into your current payroll system, you instantly save valuable time. No more manually verifying and calculating work hours. No more manually entering employee work hour data into your payroll system, and no more worrying about whether or not employees are being paid accurately. Imagine what you can do with all the free time you’ll now have.

Mobility
There is no question that the old-fashioned Bundy time clock that employees punch in and out of each day are in the past. Today’s time clock software does so much more than just record time. These solutions allow employees to punch in and out through a variety of flexible methods including a web browser, cell phone, laptop, Smartphone, mobile application and/or an actual physical time clock or even desktop computer. Employees can literally punch in and out on the go and employers can monitor and manage work hours from anywhere with an Internet-connected device.

No matter what type of business you have, from service-based options where employees are constantly on the move or a business that is spread out over a number of different locations, the benefits of time clock software can be significant for your business. You will be able to focus less on processing payroll and managing your workforce’s attendance and spend more time focused on running your business.

As you can see, there are some major reasons why businesses across the globe are adopting technology like a uAttend time clock system. Not only does it save money, but it also helps companies run more efficiently and be more productive.

What Every Business Owner Should Know About Employee Time and Attendance Tracking

2. Universal Access
On vacation or away on a business trip and wondering about your workforce’s time and attendance? No problem. With a uAttend time clock system, all employee work hour data is stored in the cloud giving you access any time of day and from any location in the world. Simply login to your company account from any Internet-connected device (e.g., laptop, PC, Smartphone or mobile tablet)! You can see real-time metrics on who is currently punched in, who was late, who is on vacation or who is working in what department. You can generate reports, monitor workload balance and even export work hours to your payroll system. Cloud-based access also allows for employees to work remote or at multiple locations and offers the convenience of a Smartphone or mobile app for punching in and out.

3. Frequent Software Updates

Again, these are just a few of the reasons why we know our customers love the uAttend Employee Management System. If you want to find out your own reasons, give us a call at 800-518-8925 or visit our website at www.uAttend.com.

uAttend Time and Attendance Tracking Software Leads the way Through Cloud Computing

time and attendance tracking systemAs a small business owner, keeping track of employee work hour attendance is one of the many responsibilities you must juggle. Add to this, your long list of managing inventory needs, marketing plans and financial concerns and it can all get a little overwhelming. When it comes to monitoring and managing employee work hours, turning to Time and Attendance Tracking Software can greatly reduce your workload and improve both the accuracy and efficiency of your time tracking system.

Cutting-edge, cloud-based technology offers huge flexibility and convenience for employees and employers alike when it comes to accommodating our need for mobility in today’s fast-paced business environment. Through it, employees can clock in and out “online” using a physical time clock, a web browser or even a Smartphone or mobile device; likewise, employers can use the same methods to track and manage their workforce. Leading the charge in cloud computing time and attendance solutions is the uAttend Employee Management System. uAttend is not only the most affordable and robust system available for today’s progressive businesses, but it is also extremely simple to use.

How is that, you may ask? As indicated earlier, through cloud computing technology, employees have multiple options available to them that help make marking attendance easy and convenient. In addition, managers and business owners have flexible and convenient options for accessing and analyzing employee work hour data. By simply logging into their online uAttend account, managers open a virtual window into their workforce. They can review employee work hours and run necessary reports. They can customize their dashboard with their favorite widgets for snapshots such as who is currently in the office, who was late, who is on vacation or who left early. They can even schedule real-time alerts to be notified if and when an employee is late and a department might be short-staffed.

Since the uAttend system uses cloud computing technology, you can track employees’ hours no matter where you are. Whether you’re on site or thousands of miles away, you’ll have access to instant, real-time work hour metrics. You can process payroll, analyze data for performance reviews, update employee wage information and so much more. With a streamlined and automated system in place and all your employee work hour data securely stored in the cloud, you will accurately pay your workforce and be free of the stresses that often arise from payroll problems.

Using cloud-based systems like uAttend to handle employee time and attendance offers even more great benefits. For example, if your business has multiple locations or if you have a remote workforce, punching in and out of a static time clock is not ideal. Rather than forcing employees to first drive to the office and then to their destination, OR trusting them to accurately (and honestly) remember their hours when filling out a time card or time sheet, they can now simply punch in and out while on-the-go using their cell phone, tablet or Smartphone. Plus, you can manage all of your employee attendance needs with a real-time application that uses a single computer interface. It’s a win-win for everyone. Your employees will clock in and out through a convenient means that works best for your company, and you’ll access their time quickly and efficiently from wherever you might be when you need the data.

Businesses today have to be mobile and must be able to change directions quickly and effortlessly. Tracking employee time and attendance shouldn’t hold you back. This is one of the many reasons why cloud-based solutions like uAttend’s Time and Attendance Tracking Software reap immediate benefits and ROI from a management standpoint.

Is it Time to Rethink Your Time and Attendance System?

As a small business owner, you know what it’s like to have every minute of your day allocated to your daily operations. You also know the importance of prioritizing when it comes to running your business efficiently. Free time is a hot commodity and one you likely see very little of. So, how would you like to free up some of that time-strapped schedule? If you’re still using time sheets or punch time cards, the uAttend™ Employee Management System can help save your valuable time. In fact, depending on the size of your company and number of employees, you could find yourself saving hours each pay period.

Not sure if you really need an automated time tracking system? Here are a few questions and thoughts to consider:

  1. How much time do you currently spend on manual time and attendance tracking and payroll processing?
  2. How old is your current system?
  3. Would you benefit from a scalable solution?
  4. Does your workforce have options when it comes to clocking in and out?
  5. Do you have any employees that work remote?
  6. Does your current system seem costly or expensive?
  7. Is your current system cumbersome, bulky and take up space?
  8. How much time is committed to maintaining your current system?
  9. Do you ever wish you could see your employees’ work hour information when you are away from the office?
  10. Do you have an easy way to access, store and retrieve employee time and attendance data?

Each of these questions is intended to help guide your decision as to whether or not you could benefit from an automated time and attendance system. Of course, perhaps the most important questions to ask are 1) whether or not you could use an extra hour or so each week, and 2) whether or not you want to boost your profits by lower operating and labor costs. If your answer to these last two questions is yes, then it’s time to invest in an automated time tracking system like uAttend.
