How to Choose the Right Time and Attendance Solution for Your Mechanical Workshop

Time and attendance systems allow the mechanical industry to operate efficiently and create productive, reliable and automated workforces, so you can better spend your time growing your business and servicing your customers.

The mechanical industry has its own set of unique requirements when it comes to a time and attendance solution. Your staff typically work in one location, so you’d just be looking for a single time clock in your workshop. Your staff typically do day shifts, usually the same shift with possible afternoon or night shifts, and you may have a shift supervisor who views and approves timesheets, or your payroll officer may look after this.

Mechanic Workshop Time Clock

At Aussie Time Sheets we have a number of time and attendance solutions for the mechanical industry.

Mechanic Workshop Time Sheets

There are significant benefits to using a time and attendance system in your mechanic workshop. Time clocks reduce administration and payroll hours and costs, reduce labour costs by optimising the work hours of your existing workforce, streamline operations, ensures labour compliance, increases payroll accuracy, eliminates guesswork and errors, reduces the risk of time theft and optimises workforce scheduling by aligning your labour requirements with workload.
