How to Choose the Right Time and Attendance Solution for Your Business

With all of the time and attendance solutions available on the market, it can be hard to know which is the right fit for your business’s unique needs. Every time sheet system is unique and offers different features and integrations, so it’s important to take the time to do your research to ensure you find the right time sheet system for you. Here’s everything you need to know about how to identify what you need in a time and attendance solution and how to choose the right one.

Will it solve your unique business requirement?

One of the first things to consider is what you’re actually looking for in a time sheet system. What is your business currently doing well and what areas could you improve in when it comes to time and attendance management?

Perhaps you’re concerned with employees’ buddy punching, which is when one employee clocks on or off for another colleague, or you may have employees consistently showing up late or taking longer than allocated breaks. Do your employee's clock on at a physical location every day, or will they be working remotely or on a job site and require mobile clocking options? Do you require software that features employee self-service, where employees can log in to see timesheets and hours worked and request leave? Will the time and attendance device be installed on one computer in your office or do you require cloud-based access wherever you are? Are you looking for a time sheet system that allows you to schedule rosters or simply a basic automated solution to your manual time sheets? Taking the time to look over your current systems and identify pain points will ensure you find the right time and attendance solution for your business.

Is it easy for you and your employees to use?

Many people are hesitant towards change, and particularly if you have an older workforce you can sometimes can up against resistance to any new systems or technologies. Our time and attendance devices are designed to be extremely simple to use, both for the employee clocking in and the manager using this information to process payroll.

At Aussie Time Sheets we have a variety of time and attendance solutions designed for businesses of every size and in every industry. If your employees are already using a swipe card or tag and you are simply looking for a way to automate your timesheets, our Proximity Card Time Clock could be the perfect solution for your business. If you are concerned with time theft or buddy punching, our Fingerprint Time Clock will eliminate this concern and allow your employees to clock on quickly, easily and accurately. If your work environment leaves the fingerprints damaged or dirty, such as mechanics or manufacturing, our Face Scan Time Clock is the perfect time and attendance device as employees never need to touch the time clock.

Is the system compatible with your payroll software?

It is also important to make sure you choose a system that can directly integrate with your accounting and payroll software. Streamlining this payroll process not only saves you precious time and money in administrative hours but also reduces the risk of error through manual data entry.

Our time and attendance software have a direct API integration to Xero Payroll, allowing you to seamlessly integrate your timesheet data directly via PaySync from your Aussie Time Sheets software to Xero Payroll. There’s no messy exporting or importing, just direct API integration with the click of a button. This seamless integration allows fully calculated work hours to be sent to Xero Payroll as either a draft or approved timesheet, leave can also be sent from the software to Xero as either approved or unapproved leave. Employees are able to log into Xero Payroll at any time and view their timesheets, leave and payslips. As this syncing of data is effortless, you can always be confident that your business’s employee data is accurate.

At Aussie Time Sheets we also have direct integrations with MYOB, ePayDay, Ace Payroll, PayTek, Unipay, Attache, PayPac, Sage MicrOpay, Accentis, Reckon and HR3.
