Five Ways Electronic Employee Time Clocks Are Changing the Way We Manage Staff

Five Ways Electronic Employee Time Clocks Are Changing the Way We Manage Staff


Electronic time clocks have come a long in recent years. Used to track employee working hours, the original systems were manual - a heavy paper card was inserted into a time clock.

Did you know that one of the very early time and attendance clocks, invented in 1888, was actually a Bundy clock? Willard Le Grand Bundy parented this time clock back in 1890!

 The Bundy time clocks in use today have sophisticated functions, reporting options and security features that save time, increase efficiency and provide valuable data for managers. At BundyPlus we continue to use the robust and modernised versions of the iconic and reputable Bundy time clocks.

 Here are five ways electronic employee time clocks are changing the way we manage staff: 

  1. Employee Time and Attendance Clocks Are Simple to Use

 Today’s electronic timeclocks are easy to use. It only takes a moment for employees to log in and out, and this process gives managers valuable data. 

  1. Payroll is a Simple Process

A manual payroll system can take several hours. By integrating your electronic time clock system with your payroll, data is quickly downloaded and the payroll process is quick and easy. The automated payroll method in place today when using electronic time clocks ensures a streamlined and efficient process. Accuracy is increased and you save on staff resources. 

  1. There are Suitable Employee Time Clocks for Small Business and Large Business

 Business owners and managers can run multiple reports using electronic time clocks. This now gives both small, medium and large business managers access to valuable employee data quickly and easily. Breaks, overtime, and leave data is all readily available. 

  1. There Are Advanced Security Features

 Time clocks can come with advanced security features. The fingerprint time clock eliminates any instances of buddy punching. Today’s time clocks and software security ensure that your data is protected from hackers. 

  1. Job Costing Software is Available

 Job costing software allows business owners and managers to capture accurate working times of employees as they move between multiple jobs throughout the day.

Managing staff through the use of electronic time clocks has never been so easy. Today’s sophisticated time clock technology is making the work of managers more simple and accurate. There is a wealth of information at our fingertips.

The Easiest Ways to Keep Track of Employee Overtime

The Easiest Ways to Keep Track of Employee Overtime

For employers, it’s important to have a system in place for keeping track of your employee’s overtime. There are a number of ways in which this can be done. From pen and paper, to swipe cards and proximity time clocks, all the way through to state of the art biometric time clock systems.

Many businesses still choose to use the old-fashioned pen and paper method which is fine if you’re happy with having inaccurate data and spending a lot more time consolidating pays than you should have to. When using a method that requires your employees to log their own time sheets, you may not always have the correct information. They could either add extra hours on themselves or forget all together. A good employer wants to make sure their staff are getting paid correctly so a much better option would be to use an electronic time clock.

BundyPlus have a range of different products that, coupled with our software, make keeping track of your employees overtime a breeze.

When choosing the best time clock for your business, there are a few things to consider. What type of business are you running? Do you have a high or low number of staff? Will their work allow them to use fingerprint technology or would a proximity time clock be better? Do they have existing swipe cards? All these factors should help you choose the best time clock for your specific needs.

BundyPlus has developed technology that can really change the way your business operates by making life simpler and saving you time and money. Our Time & Attendance Suite software can be combined with any G6-Series time clock and can take care of managing overtime and many more tasks.
