Tensor Web-Based Time & Attendance Employee Self-Service Module (SSM)

Remote clock in app for remote workforce management

The Self-Service Module (SSM) is a web-based application that allows enrolled employees to clock in or out, for time and attendance purposes, and book themselves on or off the fire evacuation list.

SSM may also be used by employees to book on or off production jobs via their internet browser. A person can use SSM to request new periods of absence, cancel pending absence requests or cancel approved absence requests that have not yet occurred. Requests can also be made to add missed clockings, amend or delete clockings made in error. Additionally, employees working a formal flexitime system can view their current flexi-balance in real-time and request adjustments to it.

The Self-Service Module provides the following web-based functionality.
