Finding an efficient system for employee time management is not a simple undertaking. There are many factors involved, and accuracy is as complex as it is crucial. That employees must be paid the correct amount and on time goes without saying. Incomplete or delayed paychecks will negatively affect both your employee relations and the smooth running of your business. They also cause headaches that you may not be able to fix easily.
Six things to look for
So what should you look for in a time management system? We’ve isolated six fundamental requirements, and we’ll let you know where you can find a software solution that will integrate with your
Ease of use
Your time management system must be easy for both your HR team and your employees to use. If it’s not, you’ll be seeing a lot of errors, incomplete or inaccurate paychecks, and plenty of headaches for all. Make sure the time entry and management software you choose has simple, straightforward, at-a-glance functionality.
When you’ve chosen a time entry and management system, you’ll want to use it as soon as possible. Simple setup is essential to get it up and running quickly. Your time is money; choose a solution that you can use right away.
Your employees need the option to enter their time and other information from wherever they are working. With more and more employees operating remotely, working from home, or limiting days at the office, an on-premise only solution will be problematic.
Choose a solution with an app that allows employees to clock in, request time off, and manage their personal data from their phones or other devices. That flexibility will prove valuable in keeping information up to date and payments accurate and on time.
Usually, one-size-fits-all doesn’t really fit anyone very well. Look for a flexible solution customized to your business requirements, with the modules your company will use and nothing you don’t need.
A unified platform
Your time entry management system will be truly successful if optimized to run as part of your ERP. That way, data will flow seamlessly between modules when everything is centrally connected. A unified platform reduces issues with syncing data and maximizes ease of use for your employees and HR team alike
Buying a suitable software solution is just one component of success. When you choose the right solution, you should be able to count on a support team that will be there to answer any questions that arise. Time entry is time-sensitive; your software partner should be there whenever you need advice or service.
