An Online Time Clock Is More Accurate
If you are using a traditional wall mount time clock or hand written time cards, you can greatly benefit by moving online. According to research There is approximately a 2% error rate when performing manual time card calculations. Moving to a system where time cards are automatically calculated solves this problem.
Web Based Systems Save You Time And Money
According to the American Payroll Association, there is an estimated 6 minutes per time card to perform manual calculations. While that may not sound like a lot, with a 15 person company that is about 1.5 hours every week. If you have several offices, then you need to factor in obtaining the time card. This adds time and possibly mileage if driving is involved. This can add up to $1200 per year
Helps Keeps You Out Of Trouble
Department of Labor investigations and lawsuits brought on by former employees can be scary. Proper time tracking and record keeping help mitigate these problems. If you are using paper time sheets or hand written notes, you must file these away and keep them for at least 3 years. Moving to a web based time clock software eliminates the records keeping, helping to keep you save from lawsuits and investigations.
Helps Stop Buddy Punching
Buddy punching is when one employee(the buddy) punches in or out another employee. Generally the employee is late for work, or left early and wants to effectively steal hours from the company. With old school wall mount time clocks or hand written times, buddy punching is extremely easy to perform. With OnTheClock, buddy punching can be eliminated using features like GPS(Geo-Location) lock down, device authorization and IP restrictions.
