uAttend, the leading provider of web-based time attendance software, says more and more organizations are switching from manual time tracking processes to online payroll solutions to become more efficient and organized. The time and attendance management industry has seen a steady increase in the demand of similar systems over the last decade, with a recent spike in demand for systems like uAttend that function with cloud computing.
“Businesses are finding value in the automation of tracking employee work hour information for things like processing payroll and managing their workforce,” said Chad Buckmaster, CEO at Processing Point, the makers of uAttend. “There is a growing desire to access the cloud to store, retrieve and monitor critical data for administrative processes because it is a convenient, secure, and affordable way to streamline operations.”
Manual time clocks and manual time recording can pose challenges not only in the accurate tracking of employee work hours, but also in converting employee work hour data into meaningful use for payroll departments. In addition, mechanical card punching time recorders, and paper timesheets are vulnerable to time theft and wage fraud practices, which cost businesses in the U.S. an estimated $200 billion each year. Manual time tracking is also prone to human error and can be a tediously, time-consuming process that adds to overall operational costs. Errors in payroll processing are not only costly, but can lead to compliance issues and possible litigation claims. Then there is the time requirement - it is estimated that a payroll or HR employee spends three to five minutes on average converting time and attendance data from time cards into payroll reports. Depending on the number of timesheets being prepared, this process can add unnecessary hours to a payroll supervisor’s job.
These are just some of the reasons small businesses are seeking automated time tracking solutions. While some companies choose to license software and host the system on in-house servers, others are opting for online, cloud-based, SaaS (software as a service). With in-house software, businesses often need to purchase additional hardware, as well as bear the costs of ongoing maintenance and supervision by IT personnel. Web-based applications, like uAttend’s time attendance software, are delivered through cloud computing and do not require additional hardware and maintenance.
“Cloud-based services present an ideal model for small businesses to acquire reliable and cost effective payroll solutions,” Buckmaster points out. “This is why more and more companies are turning to our company for help. We offer affordable systems that are extremely efficient and provide a high ROI.”
