Previous days were more of written and were hectic. Tacking of attendance was one of the hardest tasks to keep up with. For every late coming, there is a penalty. This shows an effect on the monthly salary. When the month end comes the HR has to calculate the penalties and add deductions which will eat up a lot of time. As a result, he would not be able to concentrate on other important works. Doing this for more than 100 employees is tedious.
Hence today the advent of attendance management software has changed everything and made it much simple than it could ever be. By streamlining and tracking on a virtual platform, it takes the burden off from the HR, leaving more time for him. It auto calculates the payroll and add deductions accordingly. Through this, it can keep track of employees attendance and one can have reports of it too. Many softwares are available in the market providing a wide range of flexibility towards it. Attendance Management system does end-end automation of tracking, managing, and scheduling employee hours and it does in a seamless manner with your existing biometric infrastructure. All you need to do is migrate your data to the software and see things getting simpler.
It not only saves the cost incurred but also makes HR to centrally manage the attendance policies from different locations. Automatic calculation of overtime, leave balance, enables managers to work efficiently. Get a detailed graphical report of the particular employee. You can change the shifts, track during the break hours (i.e., when the employee is leaving the office and when he is coming in). There is much more to it. A lot of things can be done through this not just tracking.
The main goal is to make HR do things that are most important!
