Employee Time Tracking Software
Here at Buddy Punch, we know that time is money.
That's why we've created an easy to use time and attendance feature, designed to make tracking time spent working as simple and efficient as possible.
So, if you want to send accurate invoices and save money for your business - we've got you covered.
Tracking Employee Time
When it comes to the growth of your business, Buddy Punch firmly believes in the power of tracking devices and having the ability to manage employee time. Why? Because as the saying goes in business, what gets measured gets managed. In other words, we know that without systems, it is impossible for you to keep track of what's going on, to see how much money is going out on the right things and how much time is being lost. That’s why online time clock software can be so useful.
The unfortunate truth is that every year, businesses are losing thousands of dollars on time wasted alone. While there are systems out there that attempt to solve this problem, many of them are by nature inaccurate, and accuracy is the key.
Without a reliable system, employees can punch in and out of work whenever they like without any way of knowing if it's accurate. Because the reality is, you can’t be in front of your employees all the time to check in on them, which is why you need a system to do the work for you.
What you really need is a way to determine how honest they are about their work hours. Let's face it - how many times do 9 am starts turn into 9:05 am? Or how many times do staff leave early and forget to mention it? A few minutes here and there may not sound like much, but multiply that by several employees and several months, and suddenly you have a problem. Every month, your business is losing precious time and money that you can never get back.
But with our time card approval system, you can be assured this will no longer be an issue.
Time Card Approval
The way the time card approval feature works is that at the end of each pay period, our system requires approval from administrators or management to ensure employee’s timecard punches are accurate. This means you can check to see if employees are punching in and out on time, which will ensure you’re paying them correctly. It allows you to keep your staff honest and you can save yourself a whole lot of money on payday, as you can find out more here.
However, depending on the business you're in and how relaxed you are about punctuality, you can also set up rules where the time clocked in is automatically rounded up or down, or the nearest increment you select with a threshold of 2 to 30 minutes to make payroll a whole lot easier.
Compatible with any device
Since the entire system is set up online, it serves as a cost-effective alternative to the physical clunky traditional punch in clocks. As long as there is an internet connection, employees can quickly and easily log in and out of the system at any place, at any time. It is compatible with mobile phones, tablets, desktops, laptops, Windows or Mac. This means you can use this time tracking software on any device for your convenience. As a bonus, if you have staff who are required to work away from their desks and change locations regularly, they are always able to punch in their time wherever they are on their mobile phones, which will automatically sync their data with other devices to keep everyone in the loop.
PTO and OT Calculations
Though you may want to use this system for work hours only, you also have the option of using the system to account for any time taken off. Whether your staff becomes sick or they are going away on vacation, they can enter any time taken off on their time card, and you can set it to be approved with management if you wish. They can also use it if they need to run errands or attend any appointments at certain points in the day to ensure they are only being paid for the hours in the office. Not only does this give you more accurate data on how many hours they have worked, but it also allows you to stay up to date with the location of your staff. This feature is particularly useful for taking paid or unpaid break periods into account too.
As well as time taken off, you can select from several options to calculate overtime. We support 40 hour work weeks, California Overtime, No Overtime, 44 hour Work Weeks and 38 hour Work Weeks to make sure there is no confusion at payroll. This also means that your staff is looked after too, which is equally important.
Time Management Systems
You know that in order to have a growing business, you need optimal productivity in the workplace to thrive. Unfortunately, while you may hope for outstanding time management from your team, the reality is that some will always struggle. The responsibility to manage employee time is up to you if you want to ensure the success of your business.
We know you already have a lot on your plate, which is why we're here to help. So if you are looking for an employee time management system that will help your team stay organized, focused, and on task, Buddy Punch has you covered.
