Effective workforce management starts with in an accurate, efficient and user-friendly method for capturing work hours, pay rates and absences. Those critical details inform you of whether you are overstaffing particular roles, shifts or locations (or the opposite), provide a true gauge of worker performance through productivity and attendance rates, and – when fully automated – keep your payroll spend in check. In short, there’s immense value in getting the right time and attendance system.
This paper provides a guide to large employers confronted by that dilemma. The following sections help you identify and describe the product capabilities – and corresponding process improvements – that separate a basic timekeeping system from an enterprise-grade time and attendance solution. In addition, the paper will equip you with questions to ask potential providers to uncover whether they have the resources, expertise, and products capable of optimizing your time and attendance processes.
