Attendance Management System that suits your business needs.
Employees are an integral part of every organization. They work for the assigned hours to achieve the organization's objective and get compensated for their contribution. However, they are also entitled to take leaves from work to maintain a healthy work-life balance and attend to their personal requirements. Under certain circumstances, they may also need to rearrange their schedules or log in a little late or leave early. It is crucial for companies to track the number of hours worked by each employee, leaves taken, overtime hours, etc. to compensate them appropriately and analyze employee productivity.

What is Attendance Management?
Attendance Management System is the process to track and document the time spent by an employee at work. This helps the organizations not only to calculate the actual wage that they owe each employee, but it also simplifies compliance. Every state has different statutory laws, and a small non-adherence may cause irreparable damage to an organization. An Attendance Management System helps companies comply with these details and make the audit processes efficient and stress-free. A few traditional methods of attendance management are paper attendance registers, time clocks, and spreadsheets. With the rapid advancement of technology, Attendance Management has also transformed radically over the years. Today, automated attendance mechanisms are much more efficient and error-free than manual attendance tracking systems. Digitized attendance management mechanisms are available in a wide variety of options ranging from on-premise software to cloud-based solutions with real-time analytics and reports.

The new generation Attendance Management Mechanisms?

Online attendance capture- Online attendance capture mechanism is the easiest and most straightforward way to capture attendance that needs no door control access. It allows organizations to automate the complete attendance management system where employees can sign-in and sign-out from their devices like mobile or laptop on the go. This attendance management mechanism is recommended for startups with few employees, employees working from home, and other use cases where there is no need for any validations on the employee’s sign-in process.

Geo-Fencing- It is an excellent attendance marking solution for managing on-sight employees or multiple locations. It enables employees to mark their attendance within the predefined boundary. This attendance mechanism does not require any installation, unlike biometrics or RFID, and can be integrated into other essential components like payroll and leave management.

What are the must-have features of the Attendance Management System?

Clocking in and out- Any Attendance Management System's essential feature is to track the time-in, time-out, breaks, and absence from work accurately.
Payroll integration- The Attendance management systems should have the capability to integrate the payroll components seamlessly. This would help calculate the compensation and reconcile the leaves automatically.
