To enjoy a productive environment, companies need a reliable system for tracking employee attendance. After all, employees are paid for the time they work, so knowing when they come and go makes it easier to manage staffing and performance. It also helps when processing payroll, which is often a time-consuming task.
Many organizations rely on spreadsheets to manually capture employee information. But that also leads to inaccuracies that impact your bottom line. An automated system eliminates these issues, so you can:
Worried it may be difficult to implement an attendance tracking system? It’s actually pretty simple to install.
Do you need to track the time of all employees or only those who are non-exempt? Will you track any on-site visitors or guests? The first step to selecting a time and attendance system is to figure out how many people you need to track.
Every employee and guest must have a unique identification number that can be scanned. Employee and visitor badges make this task easy because they usually contain a barcode, magnetic stripe, or prox chip. If your employees do not have ID cards, you may need to purchase a card printer.
A check-in station is a place where your employees and guests will check in or out. You must identify the location of each check-in station so you’ll know how many to purchase. Locations may include building exits, stations on a manufacturing line, or access points to secure spaces.
Each station may use a PC with a reader, a fixed terminal, or a time clock with biometric (fingerprint), HID, RFID, or barcode technology. Each type has its advantages; talk to a System ID advisor to see which solution works best for you.
Powering each check-in station is software that tracks attendance. Some versions provide detailed information, while others only supply basics such as employee ID and check-in time. Consider your specific requirements for capturing and reporting data before you shop for software.
