Ah yes, the 80s were all about John Hughes movies, big cell phones, white computer monitors, ripped jeans and the list goes on. Some have argued it was the one of the best eras ever and times were much simpler. And, while this may be true for some things using that old white computer with dos-based software will not cut it in today’s digital era.
For those companies still struggling to grasp the concept of the cloud or why it has such staying power here is a synopsis of a report from a research giant Forrester that reads in part; “Public cloud services continue to drive big changes in the markets for software, hardware, and IT outsourcing, while providing a foundation for age of the customer innovations. How much and when will cloud transform these markets? In this research, we project that the public cloud market will reach $191 billion by 2020, from 2013’s total of $58 billion.”
If your company is using a time and attendance solution that is no longer meeting your needs, or worst, is part of the 80s type of technology, here are three reasons to switch to ATS cloud-based solution:
Ease-of-Use, Flexibility and Mobility
One of the largest benefits of moving employee time and attendance in the cloud is the ability to access real-time information from any tablet, PC or mobile device, anywhere, at any time. The adoption of ATS cloud-based time and attendance solution empowers CEOs, CFOs, Payroll and HR managers, by giving them more flexibility to access on-the-spot information.
Who has time to spend on a 12 month software deployment? Unless your company has multiple locations, several collective bargaining agreements, multiple work and payroll rules, and perhaps in excess of 1000 employees spread across various jurisdictions- there is really no reason for long implementation, reminiscent of 15 years ago. And, in this era of cloud computing, it is easy to deploy an ATS cloud-based time and attendance seamlessly and efficiently. ATS cloud-based time and attendance solutions are designed to integrate with every payroll, HR, ERP, Recruitment and CRM application.
Lower Cost and Better Collaboration
At the outset the most obvious benefit in adopting an ATS cloud-based time and attendance is that it will provide business with significant savings. For example, your company no longer has to be concerned with purchasing a server on which to house software, or the use of your IT resources to manage the data. Managers can access the application, using any browser, from any workstation, or mobile device to view attendance, extrapolate data and review and respond to employee time-off requests.
So, is your company thinking about moving to a cloud based time and attendance? If so, it’s not too late. And, if you are a fan of some or everything 80s, you can listen to Def Leppard or AC/DC on your favorite device, while at the same time, access up-to-the minute business analytics on employee attendance.
