What is Time and Attendance?


Time and Attendance is the recording of employee attendance times, most commonly a start and finish time and the conversion of those times into payroll hours categories such as normal time, overtime,

penalty rates etc. This is all performed automatically according to the award or business rules applicable to specific employees in an organisation.  Advanced Time & and Attendance systems

may also handle leave and time based allowances. These interpreted hours are then passed to your payroll system and $ rates are applied to each payroll category.  From there your payroll

system calculates taxes, certain allowances, manages leave balances, electronically transfers employee pays through a connection to your bank and provides statutory reporting

such as groups certificates and in more recent times Single Touch Payroll reports.

Why do companies invest in a Time & Attendance System?


This simple answer is because a Time and Attendance System can take a lot of the hard work out of recording employee times, calculating payroll hours and entering these hours into your

payroll system.  This automated process can eliminate employee time theft, reduce calculation errors and over payments to employees.

The savings achieve are likely to very quick return your initial investment


Don't Payroll Systems do This?


Very few payroll products have any award interpretation capabilities and the few that do generally do it very poorly requiring many manual adjustments for each payroll prior to processing. 

Our time and attendance systems integrate with all the popular payroll products to provide a complete employee attendance management system.
