Now we are leaping into greater technology and automation.  You should not be surprised by 2025; the human will lead a life without the need of communication with others. Everything will be interconnected through technology. This is already happening but need to reach the wider population.

In the present time, organizations are thriving to achieve its optimal level in their business as the competition is sky high. Most of the organizations focus less on attention to details. This could hinder the business by the loss of productivity and efficiency.

In this post, we would emphasize on how organizations can manage their employee time and attendance systemefficiently by eliminating inefficient practices which are existing at the moment.

We would offer 3 reasons to upgrade existing software to new technology which is simple, cost-effective and assist employees to have efficient time and attendance management.

#1 Refrain using expensive software systems

ERP(Enterprise Resource Planning) was a good software management system in the past, however now it has become a very costly affair. As the technology has evolved, we have better and more efficient with cost-effective software systems that are available in the market now.  We are no way against ERP’s; it is just that they need a bigger budget and high bandwidth to manage them which is unfavorable to most of  the SME’s.

In the context of employee management, especially time and attendance management—we need to have a simple and easy to system with affordable cost. There are software systems which will help organizations to personalize employees’ time and attendance with simple yet easy to use for employees.

Since the revolution of mobile technology, most the web applications are transforming into mobile applications. This is beneficial for the employees due to its nature of portability, system independence, Real-time communication and Geo tracking. We have a new technology—GPS  Mobile Attendance System for time and attendance management in the HCM(Human Capital Management) space, this is a mobile application system which will help field/sales/contract employees to mark  their time and attendance from client/customer location by providing much-needed flexibility.  This will certainly avoid the need to use bulkier software systems for employee attendance management. Of course, this new mobile technology will save a fair amount of money for the organizations with minimal money investment and also provide a personalized attendance management system to track employee time and attendance.

#2 Eliminate manual or tedious process

Have you employed a person who is working on maintenance tasks and keeping up with manual processes?  Then you are a wasting fair amount of money which can be saved with better management. Yes, even though technology has been advanced—many businesses are still following the old practices. Perhaps this might be due to the unawareness largely, by knowing how manual system can cost the money to businesses. Also, there is a risk of committing errors by employees in the manual processes it could be in the attendance management or billing hours; this can turn to be a costly mistake.

The only way to eliminate manual process is by automation which should be secure and accurate. Mobile application technology will automate the process with more security and accuracy. Employees can mark their attendance which can be captured and shared it to payroll system which is integrated with. This will avoid the maintenance work—one can generate the reports instantly at any point of time by eliminating the manual paperwork. This is most secure, accurate and efficient for managing attendance management.

#3 Assist employees on better time-management

In most of the cosmopolitan cities, everyone has got one common challenge that is to manage the time; I guess you agree with this fact. In the context of field employees, many of them are struggling to manage their time while travelling to client/customer places on a daily basis. This is a common occurrence with field employees; however, this problem can be solved with the right approach.

Traditional attendance system will mostly help only in-house employees. Field employees have a hard time marking their attendance from the field, either they have to manually communicate else visit the office to mark the attendance. This will result in investing a fair amount of time travelling to the office. So if we have something portable software where an employee can carry through travel, then it won’t seem to have a problem. Hence GPS mobile attendance system would fit perfectly for this kind of situation. This system is portable which can be installed on mobile device.

This new system helps employees to mark their attendance from client/customer location. Organizations can track employee hours and locations with this simple mobile app. As per research, an employee can save up to 30% of the time as it compared to traditional attendance system. They can personalize their time and account accurate number of working hours with high productivity. When we have better task and time management, there will be a spike in the productivity of the employees. If one mobile app that can improvise so many things for the employee then it is better to switch from bulkier software systems to mobile technology.

In conclusion:  Traditional attendance system requires huge money investment and software maintenance.  So adapting to mobile application technology can assist organizations to save money and provide efficient time and attendance management system to employees.
