Time and Attendance Management


Processing Payroll is a nightmare! Not the “processing payroll” part, but collecting time and getting it into payroll the way you need it to be. Sound familiar? Is time tracking and input for payroll taking you days versus hours? If you answered yes to either of these questions, then chances are that you are either collecting and entering time manually today, or you are using a time & collection solution that no longer fits the needs of your business. 

As you know, time & attendance solutions collect time – start of the shift, end of the shift, meal break, and rest breaks. However, robust time and attendance solutions can do much more than that. Common functionality in a robust time & attendance solution includes:


  • Monitoring time off plans;
  • Facilitating time off requests and approval processes;
  • Tracking other time such as leave of absence and jury duty;
  • Adding notes for reporting purposes related to absences;
  • Facilitating point systems for attendance plans;
  • Creating automation for allocation, grant tracking and job costing;
  • Automating complex rules related to shift, pay, differentials, premium pay and calculations for when employees shift between department and/or position;
  • Automating complex rules related to shift, pay, differentials, premium pay and calculations for when employees shift between department and/or position;
  • Reporting based on the needs of your business, and compliance such as ACA;

The reporting in robust time and attendance solutions allow an employer to quickly monitor important data for their business, such as scheduled versus work, overtime, absences, hours by position, department or location, etc. This information allows businesses to gain exposure to their overall labor costs and subsequent impacts quickly. When an organization is experiencing high pain related to time & attendance, implementing a robust solution can cut approval and entry time into payroll by more than half. The added benefit of manual processes being removed is that accuracy will be higher, which results in overall savings for the business.
