Managing labor in business is complicated and costly at this day and age. We have come a long way from the time when employers has all the rights in the work place and employee had very little say when it came to the terms and conditions of employment. Over time, the situation in the work place had improved tremendously; labor laws were formed to protect the workers and they are provided with benefits and compensations suitable to their positions and nature of work.

Tackling labor issues nowadays, a business needs to find a balance between profiting the business and providing sufficient benefits for the employee or at risk of being sued by dissatisfied workers. Human Resource managers are not only dealing with recruiting of personnel, they need to maintaining different pay rates, scheduling, payroll issues, HR issues, forecasting on productivity, etc. In view of the increasing labor cost, businesses are finding ways to tackle the labor management effectively while maintaining sustainable revenue and ROI.

The implementation of TimeTec Cloud erases the concern of the employer of not being able to apply control on staff’s mobility and working hours flexibility. TImeTec Cloud offers three methods to record attendance in a hassle-free manner:
1.  Verification at the biometrics machine – Get yourself verified in any of the connected readers to have your attendance data recorded instantly into the TimeTec Cloud database, ready to be used accordingly.

The flexibility of check-in for attendance reporting makes TimeTec Cloud superior to other systems out there. All the attendance data can be accessed instantly by the employers and the employee via the Internet regardless of the location of the branch, and the employee can also gain access to their attendance history, to check if their data has been recorded correctly, or simply to see how much time he/she should work to cover the standard weekly hours set by the company. The regular case of he-says-she-says can be put to rest now, as TimeTec Cloud works both ways without bias, providing a transparent platform of punctuality, tardiness, and staff discipline.
So, whether you’re an desktop worker who hardly leaves your desk, an out-of-office worker often meeting up with clients for meetings, a part-time graphic designer working from home, an events associate travelling from location to location, or the CEO of a multi-national company who’s a frequent flyer, TimeTec Cloud still lets you report to work in a timely fashion, giving an accurate record of your punctuality to your superiors (if you have any).
