In many white collar positions, you are paid a salary and not paid on an hourly basis. Consequently, time cards are not common and often no one keeps track of the exact hours that employees work. For some companies, you could work from home most of your time and rarely step into the office. Many employees enjoy such freedom, as it provides them the flexibility to balance their personal and professional lives.

If your office employs workers who are paid on an hourly rate, however, it is to your advantage to have time and attendance software. This will allow you to track accurately the number of hours worked on either a daily or weekly basis. You can also factor in any time off that the employee took so that you can pay him for the time which he worked.

Another advantage of using time and attendance software is that employees can indicate the projects on which they worked for different parts of the day. If an employee was working on projects related to several clients, you can accurately bill hours to each of the clients. You can also use this software to manage your employees' tasks and decide how best to allocate them in the future.

Using Time and Attendance Software to Monitor Work Patterns

You may find that some individuals work best on one project at a time and should thoroughly complete any assignment before beginning anything new. Others may work better by balancing their time across different projects. When a new project arrives, understanding how your employees work will let you assign it to the person who can best handle it given the portfolio on which they are currently working. Used as such, time and attendance software can not only streamline your billing but also assist you in assigning work to your staff.
