Looking for a time and attendance solution is not an easy undertaking. While the web is a powerful tool that can help you quickly browse through various vendor offerings, you won’t a true picture of what each vendor can actually provide.
Here are three features to look for:
This is an important feature, yet, many companies unwittingly ignores it and instead focuses all of their attention on the price. Price is incredibly important. No one wants to pay more that they actually should and it’s within their right to make sure that’s the case. However, focus too much on the price, and at the expense of everything else, and you will likely end up with the cheapest solution that will not meet your requirements, may not even last for 5 years, or worse, with little, to no support.
- Industry Expertise
Employment Acts are being amended by several jurisdictions in order to keep pace with the 21 century workforce expectations. The time and attendance you select should be easily scalable to adhere to applicable laws as they change. Make sure you select a provider that can proactively monitor employment laws and regulations to help you keep pace with changes that could affect your business, whether –you want to minimize payroll costs, or are looking to automate data gathering compliance tasks.
- Self-Service Offerings
Today’s employees do not want to waste time calling their HR department to request time-off. Your provider’s solution should have capabilities within its application, for employees to review personal information, view overtime and hours worked, and make vacation requests. An employee self-service solution like ATS TimeWork OnDemand is accessible through any Internet browser (Google Chrome, FireFox Opera), smartphones, desktop and tablet apps, that enables employees to perform a variety of HR-related tasks on their own, without needing to file paperwork with — their HR or payroll practitioner.
Some companies start of with a list of things that they are looking for in a provider as a starting point. If you do not have a list of requirements, it’s a good idea to write a simple one that will help you compare your options. The right vendor can help you streamline your current manual business practices so that you can focus more time on other tasks that can propel your organization towards its profitable goals.
