When most of us think of time clocks, we think of the solid, heavy-duty time clocks that produce a stamped time on a physical time card. Today's employers have a much wider selection of time clocks available to them though. For some companies, it even makes sense to use a virtual, or computer-based time clock.

There is some great time clock software available these days that is both easy to install and easy to use. You will generally just have to have a minimum amount of computer knowledge in order to get this software up and running as quickly as possible. One thing to keep in mind is that much of the software is designed for PCs. If you're a Mac person, you might have a little trouble finding a program.

Time clock software works much like a standard physical time clock. Employees simply access the time clock program, "clock in," and the computer program does the rest. One of the great advantages of time clock software is that it allows the computer to perform a variety of calculating and archiving functions that would otherwise have to be done by hand.

Taking Time Clocks into the Future

So many things are computerized these days, that it comes as no surprise that there are also computer programs that serve as time clocks. Having a good time clock program can effectively free up much of the time spent calculating payroll, and, as most employers know, time saved equals dollars saved. You can find good time clock software at well-stocked computer software stores and here on the Internet.
