Remote clocking system streamlines employee management for retailers
Tracking employee time and attendance, especially for retailers that may have more than one location with both office and field-based workers, can become a very difficult task, but a remote clocking system can streamline the process and make it easier and faster.
A modern workforce management system equipped with remote clocking features can help improve company operations and bottom line, making employee time and attendance management easier and more efficient on payroll day.
Remote clocking can be particularly beneficial for retailers having multiple offices and also field-based personnel, who use their smartphones to clock in and out on their smartphones. Plus, mobile functionality combined with GPS tracking ensures they are recording their time from the correct work site.
Remote workers module delivers enhanced remote clocking options for retail staff
Designed as a mobile extension of the Tensor.NET Time and Attendance System, the Mobile Self Service Module allows iPhone owners to Clock IN and OUT at their respective workplaces, as well as requesting a period of absence, viewing remaining leave entitlements, recent clocking history and current flexitime balance.
Additionally, mobile users will be able to easily book ON or OFF production jobs, and also receive notifications when requests are approved or rejected.
On the other hand, supervisors will be able to easily subordinate work colleague’s time sheets and approve or deny their absence requests. The management of requests is made easy with the aid of a consolidated calendar showing the absence of all subordinate employees.
Beside remote clocking, the remote workers module also supports role based security, meaning that you can easily choose which combination of features employees will have access to. Disabled features, such as the ability to view flexitime, will simply not appear at all.
Given its mobile nature, the remote workers module application also offers a special provision to mitigate the possible connectivity losses, by storing all of the requests on the iPhone and transferring them immediately after a network connection is re-established.
Mobile clockings and job bookings, once submitted, are transferred to the central Tensor.NET application. Additionally, the employee’s geographical position is also ascertained from their iPhone’s location and the employee’s movements recorded in this manner are plotted on a map viewable in the Tensor.NET (which is a particularly useful features for field personnel).
