Need easy to use rostering with powerful employee communication?

Rostering systems over the past 3-4 years have really evolved with access to the internet now in the hands of nearly every working employee. Smart phone sales have rocketed over the past 7 years around the world.

Inline with smart phone sales has been the massive growth of apps. You can find an app for just about anything you can think of. The cleverest of apps for employee scheduling includes the ability not only for the employee to start and stop a shift. Employee scheduling apps have come a long way now giving the ability to put the employee roster directly onto the employee phone weeks in advance. Employees can now sync their smart device calendar to receive their schedule automatically populating the employee calendar with the shifts they need to work over the coming period.


This type of clever technology would have really helped Starbucks recently where it became clear over 130,000 employees were mostly kept in the dark about upcoming schedules. Starbucks have this week made an announcement that they will post the employee schedule at least one week in advance…….wow would you be happy with this, so for ever Starbucks have been making it very difficult for employees to know what they are doing next week.

With the busy lives we all lead today, millions of casual workers who in many cases may have more than 1 casual job need visibility about the workload they have. Being casual is tough, you don’t even know if you are working tomorrow sometimes and in many cases have no idea if you are working next week.

Don’t let your company become main news across websites around the world.

If you run a business that deals with large numbers of staff and you are already using online time sheets, you’ll be well versed in how cost effective online time sheets are. Regardless of the size of your business, online time sheets are the most beneficial and cost effective means to track and monitor your staff productivity and time and attendance.

Using the platforms of online time sheets, certain tasks such as staff and project tracking, project monitoring, financial expenditure and wage information is easily configurable and as it is collated in one simple to use program. The traditional methods of paper documents or digital spread sheets often work out to be more expensive, time consuming and unreliable as they rely solely on human input, which can result in errors, discrepancies and lengthy wait periods.

Some people might think that converting your organisation to an online time sheet system is costly, disruptive to business operations and time consuming. The truth however, is it is a far less invasive procedure and costs far less than assumed. Most modern online time sheets are available for very affordable costs, and cost very little to install and train staff.

The cost saving and time and attendance solutions offered through the introduction of online time sheets makes company budgets much easier to devise and stick to, as these online platforms lay out all expenses and costs incurred so that management can actively predict the revenue and expenditure of the company. This is a very innovative and beneficial feature, as businesses can now plan more accurately for the future with little financial wavering.

If you’re looking to make your office more efficient and cost effective, implementing an online time sheet platform at your workplace is one of the first steps to take. Allowing all office operations to be logged and monitored, as well as tracked and analysed, online time sheets provide a platform for planning and actively reduces or removes the need for human interference when data collection and organisation is involved.

A much more accurate and affordable method of monitoring time and attendance , the use of an online time sheet eliminates the need for a person to struggle with entering all the hard copy data into a computer system. By doing this automatically, your online time sheet platform saves thousands of dollars in man hours required in data collection and collation, not to mention the accuracy of staff clock on and off times which can actively remove the costly threat of time theft and wage fraud.

Top 5 reasons to use online time sheets

Posted on: September 5, 2014 | Categories: cloud rostering Rostering Demonstration scheduling StaffRosters Blog

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.
