When you use TimeForge to track employee attendance...
Handle overtime and pay rules without pain
With TimeForge, staff members can clock in from any internet enabled computer, or – if you prefer – only from those PCs that are allowed for employee time punches. With a single click (or a tap in the Manager Mobile app), management can check which staff members are currently clocked in. You can also monitor the labor costs for the day or week in real time for an entire location.
One huge benefit of our software is that it automatically calculates overtime for employees. This includes time and a half, double time, and California overtime – to name just a few options.
You can set up overtime rules so that they’re universal across the company or tailored to each team member. Rules can be defined according to local or regional laws. When reviewing attendance, managers can quickly see how much overtime has been accrued for the time period, and they can also schedule overtime reports for regular delivery via email, too.
Stay compliant with your local and state labor laws
Early clock ins and late clock outs by staff members can quickly eat up budgeted payroll dollars. TimeForge Attendance can enforce any labor schedule created by TimeForge Scheduling, thereby requiring that employees clock in at the correct time. When you get rid of early clock ins and late clock outs (“riding the clock”), you improve the profitability of your business right away.
When combined with our scheduling software, managers can take into account necessary meals and breaks, ensuring that employees take them as required. This also ensures that the employer is in compliance with local and state labor laws. Never get hit with heavy fines because someone failed to compensate employees for missed breaks.
Set grace periods or rounding rules
TimeForge Attendance makes it easy to set grace periods for clock ins and clock outs. When combined with our employee scheduling software, you can decide how early or late an employee can clock in or out for their shift before manager approval is needed. Grace periods can be set to whatever works for your business.
Does your business use rounding rules for employees clocking in and out? If so, our software can automatically round staff member clock in and clock out times for you. TimeForge can round employee time cards to the nearest 5 minute, 10 minute, 15 minute, 30 minute, or 60 minute time period.
Eliminate buddy punching with biometric timeclocks
By default, employees can clock in and out of TimeForge Attendance using their user name and password. Most commonly, a staff member’s user name is an email address. We know that “buddy punching” can be a problem with traditional time keeping, and our time keeping solutions can help. Buddy punching is when one team member clocks in for another who hasn’t arrived yet, for example.
Our software can use biometric fingerprint scanning as a faster and more secure method for team members to clock in and out. Biometric time clocks deliver fast employee identification and eliminate buddy punching, thereby reducing payroll costs. These devices are more common than ever, and we highly recommend them.
Easily record tips and mileage
Unlike many other time keeping tools, TimeForge tracks key metrics that are important to retail, food-service, or hospitality businesses. Because TimeForge is web based, it’s always online and available when you need it. Staff members can quickly log in and record tips and mileage. There’s no need to wait.
For example, TimeForge Attendance can record tips for employees, which is ideal for waiters, servers, concierges, or hotel clerks who need to report these for tax purposes. Delivery drivers, couriers, and other staff can also record mileage, which can then be reviewed by management staff. Employees can also record a short note at the end of their shift to let management know how it went.
Access timecards and time punches from anywhere
Because it’s cloud based, TimeForge Attendance provides employee time cards for staff members and managers to review anytime, anywhere. Employees can check their own timecards at their convenience, which means less paperwork and circling up for the management team. When managers aren’t caught up in the “small stuff,” they can focus on the things that matter.
Edit time sheets in seconds
Did a staff member forget to clock in or out? TimeForge Attendance provides quick and easy editing of timesheets by managers and supervisors. Unlike with traditional time cards, you can edit punches for one employee or multiple employees all at once in TimeForge.
As noted above, time sheets can be viewed (though not edited) by regular employees using the staff portal – a simple employee self service tool. Staff members never need to bother managers for info about their hours or pay, as timesheets are always online and available through a web browser, as well as the employee mobile app. This also helps employees catch mistakes early and plan ahead to meet their weekly work quotas.
Export payroll in minutes, not hours
With TimeForge, you can review payroll costs by employee and by date. Easily manage the payroll approval process by running reports on hours worked and time off, including any sick, vacation, or paid time off (PTO). Then, process the pay period with the click of a button. You can even set up your reports to run on their own at scheduled times.
Quickly and easily export your payroll hours to popular payroll programs such as Quickbooks. Our software is also integrated with supported payroll providers to bring you a seamless experience across the TimeForge platform.
