Employee Scheduling Software FAQs

What are the disadvantages of using a time clock from an office supply store?

While time clocks are certainly better than handwritten or paper timesheets, they typically only record punches or timestamps. Someone still needs to calculate the hours worked, know how to apply the pay rules and enter the time into payroll. And since this is done manually, information may be overlooked or entered incorrectly. With cloud-based time and attendance software, a smart time clock records the information, calculates the total hours immediately and sends them to payroll automatically. ADP time clocks also offer biometric identification, prompting employees to punch-in and out using finger scans, facial recognition, voice commands, or PIN codes to automatically upload punches to timecards. These methods prevent “buddy punching”, which happens when an employee may clock-in and out for others.

Can ADP time and attendance software help me manage overtime?

Yes, complying with the Employment Standards for each province and territory and controlling overtime costs are two of the biggest benefits of online time and attendance solutions. Employee time tracking starts with proper classification of workers, followed by automatic and accurate calculation of hours worked during the pay period. Overtime rules specific to individual businesses and locations are then applied and sent for payroll processing. Managers only need to approve timecards, and not spend hours calculating hours worked or figuring out the correct overtime rules. This helps managers simplify payroll compliance and save time by reducing administrative burden. There is also timely visibility to see who may be approaching overtime so schedules can be adjusted to avoid overtime costs.

To what extent is employee time tracking integrated with payroll and HR?

Time and attendance features are part of ADP HCM platforms. This means that users only need one username and password, so there is no re-keying or difficulty accessing the system due to forgotten passwords. The experience and design are consistent, and all data is maintained in a centralized location. Employee data flows automatically between HR, payroll, and timekeeping, and there is reliable access from any location, as well as adaptability to support evolving business requirements.

Can employees use their mobile phones for time tracking?

Yes, the ADP Mobile  app allows employees to clock in and out, view schedules, request time off and, more. Geo-fencing helps ensure that staff members are within a specified distance from a work location when they track their time. Our app also has tools for employers, such as payroll and other HR features.
