Time Is Money
By Rob Basso
Advantage Payroll Services
Time is money; if your clients don’t track their time or their employees’ time properly, their business will literally lose money. I hear from many of my clients and colleagues who do not use a time tracking system that they find it hard to see how many of their employees take extended lunches or too many breaks, or if they are taking breaks at all. Just as importantly- are their employees in compliance with the law? New York State requires that all employees working over six hours take a 30 minute break; are their employees complying? How do they track this?
The solution is simple and was designed with the everyday business professional in mind. With SwipeClock™, there is no software to install, and they can easily and conveniently view, edit and run reports right through their web browser. Our web-based server automatically does all the collecting, calculating, processing, and reporting quickly and accurately.
Worried about cost? If your client is on the smaller side, our time and attendance solutions can be scaled up or down to meet their needs, whether it be as simple as clocking “in and out” from the employee’s work station or more complex with labor distribution and shift differentials. Their company account will be as user friendly or as detailed as necessary to meet their timekeeping needs.
Let’s say your clients have a manual method where their employees use timecards to punch in and out. Why switch over? By eliminating the time that is required to manually total time card data, the cost of human error, and the large expense associated with employee time theft, our simple and affordable solution is an excellent investment for any company. In fact, it’s more often less expensive once the time spent manually tracking this information is reduced.
I’ve asked Tony Hector, our Time & Attendance Implementation Specialist, to answer a few of our most frequently asked questions. If you have any further questions, please call 800-440-9033 X13 or email Tony directly.
