Time card approvals can overwhelm managers who do it the old school way. Totaling hours by hand on paper timesheets is a waste of time for employees. Would you like to speed up time card approvals so they take just a couple minutes a week for your managers? How about completely eliminating time card tallying on your employees’ part!
Sound good? Follow these steps:
1. Automate Employee Timekeeping
First, upgrade your time card system to TimeWorksPlus. Link it with a biometric time clock. If you are tracking employee time with an automated system, you are wasting a lot of time.
TimeWorksPlus creates digital time cards which replace paper time cards. Digital time cards remove the hassle of paper time card approvals. No more missed punches and sloppy writing. No more errors in arithmetic. These take time for managers to correct. Increased accuracy speeds up time card approvals.
2. Automate Mobile Time and Attendance
TimeWorks Mobile is the TimeWorksPlus mobile app. All you need is a web browser and mobile device to punch in and out. Your supervisors can monitor time cards on their cell phone or tablet. Time cards for your offsite employees will be as accurate as those for your onsite labor force. If you have telecommuters, mobile employees, or techs that make service calls, TimeWorks Mobile is a must.
3. Use TimeWorksPlus Schedule Enforcement
Schedule enforcement ensures that employees are clocking in and out when authorized. Out-of-schedule punches slow down time card approvals. When a payroll manager encounters a paper time card with out-of-schedule punches, they have to stop and research. Was this confirmed by a manager? Or was it simply a mistake? Customize your workforce management software with schedule rules. By omitting out-of-schedule punches, you will remove another barrier to no-hassle timesheet approvals. It will also simplify predictive scheduling compliance.
4. PTO Tracking and Overtime
Tracking Paid Time Off (PTO) accurately is vital. Staff members who receive PTO must be able to view their accruals. Mistakes can cause employers to violate labor regulations. They also cost money and hamper the time card approval process.
When a staff member moves into overtime, TimeWorksPlus tracks it. The worker doesn’t need to add straight time and overtime on a paper timesheet. A manager won’t need to double-check or correct the calculation.
TimeWorksPlus is the affordable solution for speeding up time card approvals.
