Top 3 Employee Time Clocks for Small Business

When a business has 10 employees or more it is time to implement an automated timesheet system to help you save time and money. Small businesses makeup 96% of Australian companies and employ around 4.5 million people which is half of the Australian workforce according to COSBOA.

Manually entering employee time cards is a thing of the past, an automated solution is designed to automatically calculate hours worked, deduct lunch breaks, calculate overtime hours, and setup parameters around scheduled shifts. These systems will give you control over modifying and editing of the time sheets and produces a daily exception report, pay period timesheet reports and payroll reports.

With such a large range of time and attendance solutions available on the market it is hard to know where to start, so which is the best time clock for you? Time clocks collect data in several different ways, including via punch cards, magnetic swipe cards, bar codes, PINs and biometrics, such as fingerprints or facial recognition. We have taken the time to put together a list of the top 3 automated time clock systems available now in Australia.

Biometric time clocks with recognition technology are now widely available and more cost-efficient and affordable than ever. If your business is struggling to remove buddy punching from your labour force, investing in a biometric time clock will provide you with more accurate workforce data.

The software will take data recorded through the employee time clocks over the internet and save it to a pc or cloud-based storage. The software can be integrated with your payroll application allowing you to export employee time data seamlessly. This eliminates the need for manual timesheets or punching manual time cards. It reduces payroll error, minimises the need for manual entry of data and significantly reduces the time managers spend resolving employee payroll discrepancies and complaints.


Facial Recognition Time Clock 

Featuring the latest technology in employee time clocks, the Face Scan device is extremely reliable and fast to use. Simply just look at the device and it will clock on and record the time logged, there is no need to touch it. The device stops employees clocking on for each other, and is perfect for work environments that leave fingerprints damaged or very dirty. The data from the clock is then sent to a cloud-based or windows based timesheet application for editing, reports, and payroll.
