Advances in technology are helping to overcome some of these challenges. The latest web based time and attendance system solutions and other cloud-based platforms mean users can gather large amounts of accurate time and attendance data across a multitude of sites and store it securely.

Not only can this make site management easier, but when data is mined effectively, it can reveal patterns and anomalies that can impact future business decisions.

Don’t be put off

Despite the futuristic feel of the concept, biometric technology is simple to use and cost-effective, and when integrated with cloud-based software, it can deliver an excellent return on investment.

A fingerprint scanner or alternative biometric hardware can be used to collect the data and send it to a hub via a secure network for storage and analysis.

In the context of a building site, the software needed to process and present this data can be integrated with existing hardware and installed at points of site entry and exit, or on handheld wireless devices. It can also be integrated with a company’s management business processes and software.

The data can then be accessed using a web interface at any time, with customised reports showing live up-to-the-minute data, including hours logged, absences, qualifications and lateness, sorted by individual, team, contractor or site.

It can also be secured and stored centrally in the cloud. Not only is the data secure, but it can be accessed by the user and stakeholders via a secure web interface.

Cloud-based software is extremely scalable; as the capital expenditure is minimal, it is an extremely attractive proposition for firms of all sizes, as they only pay for what they need.

Massive potential

Perhaps the most exciting aspect of the application of a web based time and attendance system is the potential of the data, which goes far beyond the creation of reliable timesheets.

When a large quantity of employee data is mined and analysed, it can reveal the story of your business over time. Trends and anomalies can signpost areas that need attention, or where money can be saved.

This can also be invaluable when it comes to pitching for new business. Proof of an effective reporting system and reliable data on the number of people you employ and the time they spend on site can significantly enhance your bidder profile, because you can then demonstrate efficient project controls.

For building services firms to be successful, they need to do more than undercut rivals. Firms need to closely manage their projects to ensure employees are delivering on time and to budget. Key to achieving this is clear communication of accurate data.

Although web based time and attendance is only a small piece of the puzzle, it is undoubtedly a critical element and is currently an area where money is being lost due to inefficiency and the use of outmoded technology.

Suspected Dishonesty Forces Introduction of Employee Time Attendance Software

Statistics show that some employees commit time theft on a regular basis by lying on time cards and time sheets.

New York, NY (PRWEB) October 08, 2013

shutterstock_74128618Most employers are likely aware that employees can be dishonest. However, many employers don’t know how far this dishonesty extends, or feel as though it might just be something that other companies experience.

According to recent statistics featured in Business News Daily, authorities identified 71,095 dishonest employees in 2012, and businesses recovered over $50 million from these inventory thefts. In recent statistics quoted by Voss Insurance Services,

-Staff members carry out 80% of crime in the workplace,
-One out of four people committing workplace fraud has been with the company for 10 years or more and
-One in four people working for any given company has witnessed or taken part in employee fraud.

Voss Insurance focuses mainly on crimes like embezzlement, phantom vendor creation, vendor kickbacks, padded expense accounts and inventory theft. However, though these crimes might be on the larger scale, this does shed some light on what others are capable of. It’s nice to believe that all people have good in their hearts and would choose not to steal. However, when it comes to snagging office supplies, random bits of inventory, and lying on time cards, most people know someone who regularly engages in this type of behavior without a second thought. When it comes to larger scale thefts and embezzlement, if so many people are capable of carrying out these crimes, then it stands to reason that the smaller ones might be more rampant than most people might think; and yes, these things could be going on right under any office manager or business owner’s nose.
