This option allows employees to make clockings and/or view their personal attendance data from their PC. This is especially useful when operating flexitime and can be used alongside clockings made at physical terminals.
PC clocking can be made ‘on-site’ or from remote locations, so is ideal for both office based and remote employees.
PC Clocking allows employees to make bookings from a PC, laptop or tablet either in the office or when working remotely. Since no hardware is required, this option is particularly cost-effective.
In making clockings employees are presented with a user-friendly interface that allows them to perform a range of functions, including clocking in/out, booking breaks and booking to lunch.
There is the option to create user-defined activities, such as “In Meeting”, “Engaged” that employees can then book to. The current booking for all employees can be made visible across your network, so that colleagues have visibility on which persons are available.
The interface also allows employees to view their personal attendance calendar, previous hours worked and current holiday allowance/taken positions.
For businesses running a Flexitime System, the PC clocking software offers employees the ability to check their flexi-balance. This eliminates the need for timesheets and cuts down the burden on HR and line managers to provide information relating to employee hours worked and flexi-leave.
Employees working remotely with a VPN or web connection can use the PC clocking software as if they were in their office, meaning that such employees can be integrated into the overall attendance system.
For businesses looking to record the time employees spend on jobs, our PC clocking software is one of the ways for employees to clock to jobs. All information is in real-time, meaning that managers have instant visibility in understanding which employees are working on which jobs – see our Job Costing section for more details.
The PC clocking software can be used in conjunction with other forms of clocking such as biometric and proximity terminals, and mobile devices. This means that employees can register their attendance using a mix of different technologies.
Whilst PC clocking software is normally for individual employees, it can be configured such that several employees can clock using a single computer. This is useful where staff do not have their own PC, but there is a departmental PC available. By providing each employee with their own password, the PC can be shared and clockings security maintained.
