Selecting a new time attendance solution. Top Tips

New time attendance system selection tips

Top Tips from Allday Time Systems – Looking to get the most out of your time and attendance system? or looking to source a new time attendance system and not sure what to look out for? Here are some top tips to help you select a new system or get the most out of an existing system:

⏲ Use any included ‘Employee Self-Service’ options – this can be a huge time-saver and a valuable resource for enhancing operational efficiency. As well as saving system operator and HR staff time, you will empower employees to manage their own information, fostering a sense of ownership and responsibility. The level and types of self-service can vary and include things like absence requests (via web or mobile app), rota shift selections, absence entitlement enquiries, general worked hours enquiries etc.

⏲ Make the most of the system’s accessibility with cloud based capabilities – access the information you need when you need it, from wherever you are. Don’t limit access to just an office PC when you can have the flexibility of accessing from anywhere anytime.

⏲ Ensure the system has built-in automation for things like data collection, calculation of worked hours, exceptions and reporting.  Choosing a system with a high level of built-in automation will not only reduce manual processing and save time but also make data collection more efficient, streamlining your company’s overall workflow.

⏲ Don’t forget system support. Check whether there’s built-in support included as standard and if it’s accessible from within the system, for your convenience.

⏲ Check if hardware warranty and ongoing maintenance are included. A comprehensive support package not only safeguards your investment but also provides peace of mind, ensuring that your time and attendance system operates smoothly over the long term.

⏲ Choose the hardware that’s right for your organisation. There is a wide range of hardware options to choose from, including different types of biometric (face, fingerprint, palm etc), non-biometric (cards/fobs/pin etc) as well as connectivity options (TCP-IP/WIFI/GPRS/USB transfer). Think about what will work best for your particular organisation, the culture and physical environment will have to be considered as well as your budget when selecting the most appropriate hardware.
