Budget Time Clocks Versus Premium Time Clock Systems
Author of the Time & Attendance Guide Series
The typical budget-priced time clock system will suffer many of these issues.
- Poor support
Inadequate installation instructions
Poor fingerprint reading
Poor leave management
Incomplete overtime calculations
Limited payroll software export options
Limited payroll categories
Poor rounding rules
No overtime balancing
No automatic backup
Free but unsupported software
Poor time zone support
No Daylight Saving Support
The result of these failings is that your budget-priced time clock will be painful to implement, difficult to administer and inaccurate - that is if it doesn't fail entirely at some stage taking your employee data with it!
Quality time and attendance system, by comparison, will practically automate your employee attendance process. The software will be robust and reliable, the calculated payroll hours will be automatic and accurate, and the export to payroll will be seamless.
A quality time & attendance system can streamline the whole employee payroll process saving time and money by eliminating employee time theft, eliminating accidental over payments and dramatically reducing your data entry time. A poor time clock will most likely make things worse and end up costing you money.
Remember that we are dealing with your employee attendance records and they must be retained for seven years. Would you trust that to a budget-priced product?
