By Shannon Corgan, Director of Marketing
When looking for an employee time tracking solution, you want to make sure that you’re getting a solution that is going to be as efficient as possible and save you the most time. Here’s a list of the Top 5 Features that you’re missing in your employee time tracking solution.
MANY WAYS TO COLLECT TIME
Take advantage of the ultimate flexibility by collecting labor hours in real-time, after-the-fact with digital timesheets, or both real-time and after the fact digital timesheets with WorkMax TIME. You have the flexibility to use a combination of the time collection methods for employee time tracking to meet the needs of your whole organization. Time can be submitted by an individual employee or supervisors can track a crew’s time with a smartphone or you can set up a mobile tablet kiosk at your client’s locations. Your office staff can use a kiosk to clock IN/OUT or they can do it from their desktop, laptop, or mobile device. WorkMax TIME makes it easy and offers you many options to fit the needs of your organization to save you time processing payroll.
MANY WAYS TO ASSIGN OR ALLOCATE TIME
Most project-based businesses want to track what their employees are working on. Other employee time tracking solutions only offer you one workflow to allocate time. If you don’t allocate and collect your employees’ time in real time and have your employees allocate their time in real time, you don’t have an option to do it later. It’s NOW or NEVER with other employee time tracking solutions on the market. With WorkMax TIME, supervisors or individual employees have the flexibility to quickly allocate labor hours to the right activity in real time or after the fact. Supervisors can even allocate time for their whole crew in real time or after the fact to save time and be more efficient and accurate with their job costing.
PREASSIGN PROJECTS AND TASKS/COST CODES
Depending on the size of your company and level of detail with your cost codes, your employees could be wasting hundreds of hours a week scrolling through a list of thousands of irrelevant tasks or cost codes. Save your employees time by preassigning tasks to a project to limit the list of tasks and projects for them to select from when they are clocking IN and/or changing tasks throughout the day. This means that employees will only see the projects they are assigned to and the tasks related to their duties to save them time and make it much easier to get them to adopt a mobile employee time tracking solution. The easier and faster you make it to track job costs the more accurate your job costs will be.
KNOW WHO HAS AN ASSET & WHERE IT IS
Tired of spending too much time trying to find where your equipment is? How many phone calls, text messages, or emails does it take to find out who has the equipment or tools you’re looking for? By using an employee time tracking solution like WorkMax TIME combined with WorkMax ASSETS for asset tracking, your employees can easily capture asset usage and you will know who has your assets, where they’ve been used and where it’s all at. Save time and reduce asset losses with WorkMax TIME + WorkMax ASSETS.
KNOW WHAT’S COMPLETED ON THE JOB WITHOUT BEING THERE
Most employee time tracking solutions out there don’t allow you to be able to track production units to know what’s happening in the field and what’s being accomplished. With WorkMax TIME, it’s easy for your employees to track cost codes or tasks with production units from their mobile devices with the correct production units. To save time and get the right production units completed on your projects, WorkMax TIME sets up the right units of measure ahead of time so that you ‘re comparing apples to apples for all of your projects for your entire organization. With accurate production units with the right units of measure, you can confidently know what your employees have accomplished and quickly communicate it with your clients.
