Have you give much thought to the employee time clock in your firm or is it the good old pen and paper or do you think having spreadsheets at break rooms, points of entry or exit is enough? Some businesses still have the punch card system where the amount to be paid out to the employees is calculated using manually in making payments. If you are an entrepreneur who has employees helping in the business, it is crucial to have an online employee time clock. The apps or software can help you save a lot of money and time. You will not need to calculate the number of hours your employees have worked because the system updates them instantly. Some will make the process automated to the point where hand-entered data is not essential. In cases where you have human beings do calculations involving compensation from minutes and seconds invested in productive work coupled with breaks along the way it is very easy for errors to occur in the process. The online employee time clocks will log in even in seconds and make accurate calculations which eliminate the chances of error.
There are people who will include hours they have not worked in order to get higher remunerations when the payment is per the hour. Others will ask to be logged in even when they do not show up for work. In some cases, the online employee time clocks will rely on various technologies to ensure those who are clocking in are actually there and this will reduce the cases of people who clock in even when they are still sleeping in their own houses. Having to monitor your employees in ensuring they are actually there is not fun. Also, when the process is automated there will no longer be late payments because someone was late in submitting the timesheets.
When some people are cheating in order to get more money it becomes an issue for those who aren’t and with online employee time clocks compensation will be based on merit making the process much fairer for everyone involved. No matter how the issue is viewed, removal of the human element in employee time clock is crucial because human beings will be biased when their friends are involved. The online employee time clocks will have no feelings when calculating the time and period. You will avoid legal cases which stem from favoritism as well because the computer cannot be accused of such. Given that the time clocks also analyze attendance, it will be easy for you to know when a problem has to be addressed.
