Online time sheets are the most advantageous and accurate way to collect and collate staff time and attendance data. Utilising this technological advancement could save your company thousands of dollars in inaccurate wages and time theft.

There are a number of reasons your company would benefit from employing the online time sheet system, but here are the top five reasons to use online timesheets at your workplace:

  1. Cost Effectiveness: It is a well-known fact that implementing online time sheet systems at your place of business will save your company money in the long run. This is due to the accuracy of the time and attendance records, meaning you won’t be susceptible to time theft or wage fraud by employees looking to get unearned dollars out of your business. Additionally, utilising online time and attendance records minimised the need for human manual handling, meaning less time has to be spent sifting through time sheets and collating the data thus saving your business the amount of an additional person’s wage.
  2. Accuracy: A very obvious benefit of online time sheets is the accuracy of the online platform. By getting your staff to log on and off at the beginning and end of their shifts, you’re able to see exactly when they arrived, and exactly when they left. This eliminates the option for getting a friend or colleague to clock on or off for them, as they need to access their online time sheets themselves. More accurate data can also be collected from online time sheets as the data entry is automatic, bypassing the need for human input thus reducing the room for error.
  3. Avoid human error: Following on from the accuracy of online time sheets, this method of staff time and attendance is beneficial because it avoids human error. By inputting all staff time and attendance manually, your company is subjected to human error which can throw off accuracy and cause larger scale problems in future.
  4. More simple and streamlined: By utilising online time sheets your staff will have access to a simplified and streamlined online platform to log their clock on and off times. Rather than battle the confusion of multiple pieces of paper or spread sheets, online time sheets are accessible and present all necessary information in one easy to use online space.
  5. Reliability: Using online time sheets is one of the most, if not the most reliable method of time and attendance data collection. Eliminating human error and significantly reducing the ability for time theft and wage fraud, online time sheets are the most reliable source for all staff clock and off information.

Should I choose a cloud Rostering or Time & Attendance solution?

Posted on: September 3, 2014 | Categories: cloud rostering rostering scheduling StaffRosters Blog

As cloud software has burst onto the scene over the past couple of years we have seen some spectacular products and we have seen some dismal failures. I am not going to name products here, I will more talk about what to look for when selecting your cloud rostering or time and attendance solution.

What are the advantages and disadvantages of cloud rostering and cloud time and attendance?

The 2 biggest advantages of going to cloud really do outweigh the disadvantage

No hardware/software infrastructure required – you can go completely without any hardware and have no software installed on your computers in the business, this for me is the largest advantage for small business as you need no IT expertise to get your system up and running. Some of the excellent cloud based rostering solutions will allow you to start setting up your account as soon as you sign up for a 30 day trail, within a couple of hours your account can be set up and you will be rostering for next week from your computer, iPad, Tablet or mobile phone, it really does not get any easier.

Communication – When you move to a cloud rostering or cloud time and attendance solution one of the biggest advantages you get is better communication, with nearly every person carrying a smart phone today you can push information to your employees and they can communicate back through the same channel on the smart phone or a computer. I have seen some of the employee time clocks over the years come out with all sorts of features that allow employees when they clock in at the time clock to look up information like how many hours they have worked, what time they clocked in and out over the past seven days and more. These features while sounding clever only congest the employee time clock at a time when people just want to clock in and out.

The only way today to share information with employees is give them an app they can load onto their smartphone giving the employee their own personal self serve kiosk experience that they can access anywhere and anytime.

When thinking about disadvantages there are not many, having the ability to manage your system where ever you are by phone, iPad, Tablet or computer works well for most in the busy life we all lead every day.

Some systems could drop out when no internet is available and this would be the biggest disadvantage of the day, when was the last time you lost internet on your mobile phone? Smart apps will hold data when the internet is not available automatically pushing the information to and from the smart phone as soon as the internet connects again.

I was just reading an article this morning about Goolgle working on replacing computer screens altogether in the coming years with voice activation and instructions moving to a new phase of ease of use. In the coming years you will not even have to manually build your rosters or write emails to communicate with employees, you will simply be able to say what you want and google will look after the rest……the technology has been around for decades but the changes coming in the near future will simply blow you mind.
