Increased transparency and efficiency with mobile time recording
Employees can use the simple and intuitive ATOSS app on their smartphone or tablet to access important information and functions relating to working hours and mobile time recording — regardless of when and where they are deployed. When out and about – visiting customers or on a construction site, for instance it’s very simple for them to carry out time-stamping, record project times and assign these directly to cost centers. With a powerful software for mobile time recording, there’s no need for complex and error-prone manual processes involving time sheets and Excel. The data is automatically analyzed and transferred.

Mobile time recording also enables them to keep a sharp eye on key information such as team attendances and absences, so they can then take action quickly if necessary.
