MinuteHound's time and attendance system provides reliable daily service to companies around the world. The company has announced that their solution also is a key part of successful disaster recovery planning. With vital data stored in the cloud by using a biometric employee time clock, meeting operational requirements during a time of challenge will be that much easier. Both accessing existing payroll data and resuming employee work schedules using MinuteHound to record hours will be a breeze.
Companies are expected to have disaster recovery plans in place due to any natural or man-made disasters. These plans cover everything from employee welfare and pay and benefits, to plant and other company operations. They indicate alternate personnel, locations, and equipment which can take over operations in the case of serious damage to existing facilities and operations.
Disaster recovery planning makes sure that a company not only continues operating, but is able to meet legal requirements for conducting business when everything is in chaos. Some laws aid companies affected by unforeseen events, especially large disasters. Other laws, such as those regarding payroll, may have no built-in leniency. Employees need to be paid.
According to the Society for Human Resource Management, helping employees who have lost everything helps companies maintain employee loyalty as well show concern about their welfare. At a minimum, they say, companies should be sure to do all they can to make sure payday continues on schedule. After all, they note, employees have increased needs during disasters and some with direct deposit may have already written checks based on expected deposits. In a practical sense, a company will need these skilled workers to be ready to continue operations as the disaster situation subsides.
The most direct way in which MinuteHound helps with payroll disaster recovery is simple: moments after the employee swipes a finger on the fingerprint scanner, the time and attendance data is whisked to the cloud, out of harm's way. The essential data upon which the company payroll is based is never at risk from floods, fires, or other events which occur to the company. As soon as company personnel gain access to Internet connections, they can proceed to use MinuteHound to make sure the regular payday is a day of confidence for everyone. As operations are restored, reliable MinuteHound equipment will be ready to report for duty immediately as well.
Since MinuteHound eliminates paper time cards and other material which may be lost when the situation turns bad, it is an enormous help for data availability. It's also the key to data accuracy, as MinuteHound's design ensures that the stored data contains highly accurate time and identification information upon which accounting personnel can rely. MinuteHound helps companies keep their solid financial reputation even through disasters.
When companies file their disaster recovery plans, if they have MinuteHound time and attendance keeping and preparing their payroll data there will be no emergency restore from backups: it will be "business as usual." The time and attendance data is safe in MinuteHound's redundant cloud servers and away from harm.
