Online Time Sheets vs. Normal Time sheets

Monitoring and logging your employees’ time and attendance is an important facet of your business operations. Having the best and most accurate time and attendance equipment and solutions is imperative in ensuring all staff is performing to their outlined responsibilities and your company is not experiencing time theft or wage fraud.

Using online time sheets for employees and management allows your organisation to collate and store data in a much more streamlined and organised fashion. By moving your time and attendance time sheets to an online platform, staff can log on and off immediately and you will automatically have collected their data, rather than chasing them up for it or manually having to go through timesheets.

Alternatively, the traditional method of time and attendance is paper based or spread sheet collated data. This is a very simple and trust-based method of collecting time and attendance information, as staff have to manually fill out their hours and work productivity. These so-called ‘normal’ time sheets are the more traditional method of data collection, however they are somewhat out dated and can lead to discrepancies and time theft, costing your company additional money in wages and investigation.

A cost effective and more accurate time sheet system

Online time sheets are far more cost effective in this day and age as they eliminate the need for manual handling of time and attendance records. By minimising the manual input of staff data, your organisation can be confident that all time and attendance records are collated, stored and organised in the most efficient and correct way possible.

By implementing online time sheets, your company can save money by reducing the opportunity of time theft by employees . Time theft is a very common occurrence in workplaces where online time and attendance solutions have not been implemented as the staff themselves are responsible for reporting the hours they worked and their productivity levels.

Online time sheets are an automatic register of staff clock on and clock off times, meaning your staff are much more likely to arrive on time and leave when they’re supposed to as all their attendance is recorded on your company online time and attendance platform electronically.

Traditional time sheets can be beneficial for some workplaces

While online time sheets are the most popular and effective method of time and attendance records in today’s technological society, with iPads, Tablets and smart phones everywhere, there are still some instances where traditional time sheets may be of use, we cant think of any though.

If you run a large scale company that sees large quantities of casual workers work irregular shifts, then implementing online time and attendance would be crucial to excellent output of information collected in preparation for payroll.

For example, say you run a catering company that works at a large sporting arena. Every week there are a number of events staged at the venue with a large number of casual staff employed to cater them. With a staff base running into the thousands, implementing an online time and attendance system with rostering is really the only way you can save thousands of dollars when compared to a paper time sheet solution of the past.
