While some of today’s time-tracking software applications have similar functions, there are significant differences between various products. To some degree many organizations have their own idiosyncrasies and what works well for one company might not fare as well for another company. At times there is too much emphasis on the up-front price which can derail the benefit of getting a good return on your investment. Companies would be wise to choose a solution that can handle their specific challenges with the right labour analytics to support the software.
Taking the time to select a time and attendance solution that best fits a company’s particular requirements will go a long way in avoiding problems. With a slow rebounding economy, some companies are so eager to cut costs they end up selecting the cheapest solution based on the assumption that all software is created equal. When this happens, a company can end up with a time management system that does not have the capability to meet their requirements.
A time and attendance solution for a company with one location will be different from a company with a head office in Vancouver and multiple sites across Canada and the United States.ATS TimeWork can be deployed in companies with 50 employees and scaled to organizations with thousands employees while meeting the needs of divergent business models.
A thorough analysis of you company’s business practices will uncover areas for improvement and will also help in selecting the right employee time management system the first time. One of the best ways for a company to select the right solution is to define its requirements and create an implementation strategy.
