Time card approvals can overwhelm managers who do it the old school way. Totaling hours by hand on paper timesheets is a waste of time for employees. Would you like to speed up time card approvals so they take just a couple minutes a week for your managers? How about completely eliminating time card tallying on your employees’ part!
Sound good? Follow these steps:
1. Automate Employee Timekeeping
First, upgrade your time card system to TimeSource Plus. Link it with a biometric time clock. If you are tracking employee time with an automated system, you are wasting a lot of time.
TimeSource Plus creates digital time cards which replace paper time cards. Digital time cards remove the hassle of paper time card approvals. No more missed punches and sloppy writing. No more errors in arithmetic. These take time for supervisors to correct. Increased accuracy speeds up time card approvals.
2. Automate Mobile Time and Attendance
TimeWorks Mobile is the TimeSource Plus mobile app. All you need is a web browser and mobile device to punch in and out. Your managers can check time cards on their cell phone or tablet. Time cards for your offsite team members will be as accurate as those for your onsite staff. If you have telecommuters, mobile employees, or techs that make service calls, TimeWorks Mobile is a must.
3. Use TimeSource Plus Schedule Enforcement
Schedule enforcement ensures that team members are clocking in and out when authorized. Out-of-schedule punches slow down time card approvals. When a payroll manager encounters a paper time card with out-of-schedule punches, they have to stop and research. Was this authorized by a supervisor? Or was it simply a mistake? Customize your workforce management software with schedule rules. By omitting out-of-schedule punches, you will remove another barrier to no-hassle timesheet approvals. It will also simplify predictive scheduling compliance.
4. PTO Tracking and Overtime
Tracking Paid Time Off (PTO) correctly is vital. Staff members who receive PTO must be able to monitor their accruals. Mistakes can cause employers to violate labor provisions. They also cost money and hamper the time card approval process.
When a staff member moves into overtime, TimeSource Plus tracks it. The staff member doesn’t need to add straight time and overtime on a paper timesheet. A supervisor won’t need to double-check or correct the calculation.
TimeSource Plus is the affordable solution for speeding up time card approvals.
