Organizations run and prosper for two reasons. One, there’s an element of self-interest in the form of ownership. And second, there are people who run the show and get remuneration that’s in some way or the other linked to their presence at work. It is towards the latter that organizations need attendance management software.
Specifically, such a time and attendance tracking software is required for the following reasons:
- To turn a cost centre into a profit centre
Typically, employing people is an aspect of cost given that employing anyone on the back of legislations can take a toll on an organization’s finances, especially for smaller organizations, start-ups or those in industries where margins are think and competition intense. Anything that can help change such a situation to a profit centre is always welcome to organizations. And one of the easiest way to change things with proof and the right information at the right time is an attendance management software. By linking pay to productivity, it helps speed up productivity while paying people the right and just price!
- To keep track of legal commitment
Remuneration in the Indian context is a subject of multiple legislations that can be cumbersome to handle and implement. That said, one is left with no option but to do as expected. In such a situation, and to remain on the right side of the law, it makes immense sense to invest in the right means, a biometric attendance software.
- To let employees use their portal in the best way possible
The employee portal in any website is today its most important part. It’s where the employee gets to interact with the employer while being able to view important matters relating to terms of employment, leaves and remuneration. An employer cannot ever think of putting incorrect information into such an important place and the best way to go about it is by investing in a good online attendance software.
- To question those whose track records show deviations
No enterprise, irrespective of its stated objective can survive, much less grow in the absence of discipline which in the industrial context boils down to arriving at and departing from a place of work on time. Given that both these actions finally come down to money, expecting discipline from employee in a way is expecting profits from one’s operations.
- To link employee performance to their presence at the jobsite
It’s expected of employees to be at their workplace- unless it can be done just as efficiently from some other place, a fact brought about by the Covid-19 pandemic. For some like production and manufacturing, it is an absolute necessity. Not only that, in some cases it’s been brought out clearly that being there at the right time increases productivity of the organization and the employee. Given this fact, there remains no cause to be away from the workplace- unless something drastic and untoward has happened. That being so, a biometric attendance software is then the best way to record presence at the jobsite leading to the exact calculation of performance.
These are but some of the advantages of employing an attendance management software. There could be others which only time and experience bring out. That said, like the saying that “the proof of the pudding is in its eating”, it makes sense to start out and go along with all the advantage that comes one’s way!
