Posted On:- 11 June By:- Sivaranjith Sivaraman
Mobile applications are an inevitable part of cloud-based time and attendance management systems. Many businesses are starting to move to cloud-based attendance management systems during this pandemic. They are attracted to the features of the cloud-based system that supports remote working. The blog is about how a mobile application will benefit from a cloud-based attendance management system.
Benefits of using an app-based attendance management system
Remote attendance monitoring
A mobile application is very convenient for field workers, contract employees, and freelance workers. Employees can punch in and punch out from any remote place. Supervisors or HODs can monitor the location and attendance of employees from any location. Unlike web applications, mobile can carry conveniently to any location and mark attendance.
Real-time tracking of service executives
Service executives often travel to customer's places. A GPS-enabled mobile time and attendance application can track the real-time location of service executives. This system will allow supervisors to track how much time a service executive spends at the customer's place and on the road. It will help with scheduling time for customer services and create transparency in employee-supervisor relationships.
Each employee accesses their time and attendance data through their smartphone. These apps are secured using biometrics, facial recognition, PINs, or passwords. It can also eliminate buddy punching and time theft.
Important dates, requests, and tasks will never longer be skipped anymore. In most web apps, it is possible to skip critical task alerts. But people use smartphones more often than web applications, and they offer more visible notification features. Employees and supervisors can set alarms/notifications in mobile applications for various tasks.
Employees will be alerted about the commencement of a new project, completion of work, holidays and status of leave, and other applications.
Supervisors get notifications on new leave applications and other requests from their employees.
Supervisors can't miss any requests for early departure, leave, overtime, schedule changes, etc.
All this communication happens without face-to-face contact and without wasting productive time.
More Efficient ESS
The Employee Self-Service (ESS) portal has become more helpful for employees. Employees can monitor details regarding their payroll, working hours, and timesheets from anywhere across the globe. They can check the balance of their working hours at any time. The mobile app also enables employees to download reports, even if they are away from work. Mobile apps can improve the productivity of businesses working globally.
Most of the time and attendance systems can easily be integrated with other applications. Sometimes integration is so simple that even a person with no or limited technical background can also incorporate their attendance system into a mobile app.
Mobile time and attendance management systems can save money by accurately tracking the payroll details of employees. It also saves money by putting an end to time abuse, buddy punching, delays, and overpayments.
In an age where everyone has a smartphone, additional devices and infrastructure aren't needed to boost employee productivity. Even small organizations and startups can use mobile-based attendance management systems like the Minop app available in the Playstore.
