Today’s North American manufacturing companies are faced with; intense competition, pressure to increase profit margins, a competitive talent pool and impatient shareholders. Now just image in that scenario, those same companies are using inadequate systems to track payroll costs, thus inhibiting the ability to forecast overruns, which in turn, can impact overall the profitability of the business. Installing a traditional time and attendance solution, with support by in-house IT or an outside consultant has been the norm for the last 20 plus years. But with many manufacturing companies hoping to stay ahead of their competitors, having an IT department for the sole purpose of managing a Server among other IT related responsibilities, no longer makes sense when a growing body of evidence shows that moving your solution to the cloud saves money.
A recent survey on many of the world’s manufacturing organizations by IDC revealed, in part, that:
“The advantages of cloud computing for manufacturers are significant, as line of business leaders and their IT organizations increasingly rely on cloud to flexibly deliver IT resources at the cost and speed the business requires. Traditional IT spend is clearly on the decline, and manufacturers must update their cloud roadmaps to ensure their investments benefit the business. According to the IDC European Vertical Markets Survey, 2014, almost 50% of European manufacturing respondents noted they have adopted or will adopt ERP in the public cloud. And in Asia/Pacific, 49% of manufacturing respondents are using cloud – public or private – or intend to use cloud, based on the 2014 IDC Manufacturing Insights Asia/Pacific Business and IT Priorities Survey.”
For a few manufacturers, the question remains, if they deployed a cloud-based time and attendance, would their company save money? If you are still unsure, then consider the following:
Is your company is global in nature with locations across different regions or countries? If so, by moving to a cloud-based time and attendance, it will allow for easier information gathering from those distant facilities and the consolidation of global data and analysis.
Manufacturing companies with a heavy emphasis of remote users that rely on mobile access – are better off using the power of the cloud to access employee hours and other data.
Smaller organizations who cannot afford a traditional time and attendance solution-one that requires yearly updates and maintaining an expensive Server on which to house the application-would be wise to adopt a cloud-based time and attendance.
