How Cloud Based Time and Attendance Software Can Improve Your Time Tracking and Payroll Processes
The term ‘cloud’ seems to be everywhere these days.
However, cloud based business applications, specifically cloud based time and attendance software, provide a number of benefits that have the potential to significantly impact your business.
Here are 5 reasons why you should consider moving your time and attendance software to the cloud:
1. You can save your IT budget.
Switching to a cloud based application means that you don’t have to spend time and money installing software, configuring hardware or maintaining a system. Cloud based ACCUERA Time & Attendance management solution runs on a third party server, so you don’t need a dedicated, in-house IT resource to run the system. Support is just an email or call away!
2. You can reduce money and time spent on payroll activities.
Costs of assembling payroll using non cloud based systems can really add up. Mounting labor costs due to inefficient and cumbersome payroll processes, such as manually entering data and processing paper time sheets, can cause your business to exceed its payroll budget quickly. Since ACCUERA cloud based Time and Attendance solution is automated, your payroll team doesn’t need to spend the extra time on clerical tasks.
3. You can accommodate your organization’s growth easier.
When you buy non cloud based software, you have to be sure to purchase enough capacity to handle peak employee demand. Using handwritten time sheets, the manual workload can grow out of control if your workforce expands. With ACCUERA cloud based Time and Attendance solution, you only pay for the capacity you need to use at that time. You can scale upwards or downwards depending on need for that time frame. This can be especially helpful for companies that have a fluctuating or seasonal employee workforce.
4. You can access upgrades instantly.
When you purchase non cloud based software, you are only given the most current version. When an upgrade is issued, the vendor may ask you to pay extra to receive the update and you will have to spend time testing and installing it. There may be lag time between being able to install the upgrade and it being released, which means you’re left operating an outdated system. ACCUERA Cloud based Time and Attendance Solution offers automatic upgrades, which are installed at no extra cost beyond the subscription.
5. You can access cloud based time and attendance software anywhere, anytime.
Supervisors can approve time sheets, employees can clock in and out, and payroll staff can export data to the payroll management system anywhere they have access to the internet. ACCUERA cloud based Time and Attendance solution also offer data collection options for tracking employee time, including biometric time clocks, mobile applications, and telephony options. These options make cloud based time and attendance systems perfect for companies with remote or distributed workers.
