Historic data collected by time and attendance systems provide unique workforce management opportunities

The historic data collected by your company’s time and attendance systems can provide unique insights into your workforce’s behavioural patterns, enabling new and exciting workforce management options.

While time collection and worked hours tracking are their main (and somewhat traditional) features, modern electronic time and attendance systems offer numerous other features, including scheduling details, cost breakdowns and budget forecasts. Thus, they can measure time against projects and jobs for billing or even forecast future resource requirements in an effective manner.

After installing and using time and attendance systems for an extended period, businesses will be able to access a comprehensive set of historical data that they can then compare to the current data they are generating. For example, they can easily compare scheduled hours versus actual hours worked, identify which employees worked the most hours outside of their schedule, who had the most absences, which employees were frequently late, etc.

The data can be then actioned by HR departments and even help businesses improve their bottom lines by accurately forecast coverage and reducing overtime expenses.


The Tensor Time and Attendance system will help you take control of shifts, manning levels and working patterns at your organization with the help of our Smart Card based payroll and Time & Attendance systems.

For example, manning levels in our WinTA.NET application are based upon employee skills required during the working week. WinTA.NET is a proactive system that keeps managers abreast of events. It does this by automatically emailing or SMS text messaging both employees and system users on various issues.

A separate module is available for rostering and manpower scheduling. You are pre-warned when applying a shift pattern that will result in a Working Time Regulations infringement.

Furthermore, the Tensor Time and Attendance systems can be integrated with Personnel Software which offers features that will save time and aid strategic planning, especially in emergency situations (strikes, natural disasters, etc.).

A mobile or wireless technology based time and attendance system for employers from Tensor ensures an organization is kept up to date with who is missing at the workplace.
