How to Choose the Right Time and Attendance Solution for the Education and Schools Sector

School administrators have a tough job; there are so many people, resources and systems working alongside one another to keep a school running smoothly. Ensuring your school runs efficiently and effectively means investing in the right tools and resources to simplify and streamline your processes.

Attendance is crucial to education, as education can’t take place without teacher attendance, so it’s important for the education industry to have a simple and reliable way to record time and attendance. With many schools already lean on resources and continuing to face demand for reduced costs and increased performance, a time and attendance solution also allows schools to have control over labour costs and improve staff attendance and productivity.

Time Clocks for Teachers

Time clocks for teachers results in greater across the board efficiency and better management, with administrators having tighter control and a more accurate understanding of their staff’s work hours.

Our time and attendance solutions for the education industry allow schools to compile multiple payrolls from different locations, across multiple school districts. With intuitive award interpretation, our timesheet software can also calculate multiple allowance types and awards.

Time Sheets for Teachers

At Aussie Time Sheets we have two time and attendance solutions best suited for the education industry, ATS Premier and Workforce TNA.

  • Direct payroll integration exports to MYOB, Xero, Wage Easy, Quickbooks and many more
