Optimize processes, increase efficiency
The global economy is opening up great opportunities for companies in all sectors, but there are enormous challenges, too: market volatility often requires business models to be adapted in the short term. Full use of staff potential is crucial if a company is to remain competitive on a long-term basis. The working time factor has become one of the most precious assets. The modern working time recording software developed by ATOSS allows working time to be managed to optimum effect. With the advent of the European Court of Justice (CJEU) judgment on obligatory working time recording in all EU countries, holistic workforce management has become an important issue for businesses.
Time recording software offers a wide range of benefits
Flexible and mobile work, part time and marginal employment are becoming increasingly popular. But nowadays, it is no longer enough to simply administer staff attendance and absence: in particular at high-wage locations and in view of the shortage of qualified specialists, cost-efficient time and attendance management results in a significant increase in competitive capacity.
Taking staff preferences into account as far as possible when planning working times increases their motivation and productivity. The data captured by time recording software means staff have access to information any time they want via self service functions that are frequently integrated in workforce platforms. In fact, apps for smartphones and other end devices are now being used more and more for time recording purposes. In large workforces in particular, comprehensive working time management is virtually impossible without suitable software. Smaller companies use ATOSS time recording software as well, benefiting from increased efficiency in organizing their working time.
Rigorous demands of modern working time recording
Modern time recording software has to be able to capture working hours simply and accurately directly on site, process the data taking statutory regulations and payscales into account and generate analyses at the press of a button. These criteria provided the basis for development of our time recording software. The result: automated processes, relief from routine tasks and more freedom to focus on the essentials. ATOSS time and attendance management integrates all the relevant aspects of modern working time management in a single solution: efficient time recording, management, assessment and analysis of working times as well as the automatic transfer of the relevant data to all commonly available payroll accounting systems. The reporting system integrated in the time recording software creates transparency for management, providing the basis for sound decision-making. Meanwhile the self-service functions actively involve both managers and staff in working time management processes, increasing individual responsibility and boosting staff satisfaction.
Efficient time recording software for all sectors and sizes
The ATOSS time recording software is ideal for companies of all sizes and sectors and bundles the company’s in-depth expertise amassed over more than 30 years of project work. At present, some 6,500 customers worldwide place their trust in our longstanding Workforce Management experience. Measurable success demonstrates the effectiveness of ATOSS time recording software: leveraging IT-supported workforce management and ATOSS self service functions, RITTER SPORT reduced workloads in its personnel department by 80 percent, for example. And companies with smaller workforces have likewise used ATOSS time recording software to reduce administrative effort, achieving a measurable growth in free capacity.
Time recording software in the form of an app
It is especially useful to offer time recording software in the form of an app for mobile end devices such as smartphones. In this way, staff in the field or working on external projects can enter hours, view overtime, change cost centers and apply for absences using the mobile time recording system – at any time, no matter where they are. Thanks to automatic time recording, the data is then instantly available online. Time recording software also reduces the number queries, making processes more efficient and less error-prone.
Access control for enhanced security
In combination with time recording software, ATOSS access control can also be used to provide effective protection from unauthorized access for specific company facilities and expertise. As a supplement to time recording, an extensive authorization system regulates precisely who is given access when and where. It is always possible to see where particularly individuals are at any given time, with highly sensitive areas automatically protected from unauthorized access. Since it is integrated in the time and attendance management system, staff master data is already available so there is no need for duplication.
Benefits and effects of time and attendance management:
- Automatic recording, calculation and analysis of working times and absences
- Automated supplement calculations and transfer to wage and salary accounting
- Management of long-term and short-term accounts based on freely definable rules
- Automatic monitoring of statutory, payscale-related and operational regulations
- Basis for innovative working time concepts
