Time and attendance management – ATOSS gives you active control, not just administration

Working hours are in short supply

Nine-to-five is a thing of the past: the organization of working time and staffing structures are undergoing significant change. Companies are calling for working time to be demand driven, while employees want their working hours to accommodate their personal situations. Long-term working time accounts, flexible individual working models, sabbaticals, temporary employment and marginal employment are all on the increase. At the same time, the average working time is falling. These changes are presenting companies with new challenges. They need to be able to manage the working time that is currently in such short supply with an eye to optimizing the costs and service, instead of predominantly administrating this resource. At the same time, new framework conditions must be created for changing staffing structures, particularly for semi-retirement and the compatibility of family and career. Consequently, companies must work with a much broader palette of working time models. These issues are becoming increasingly complex.

New working times for new working environments

Globalization, demographic change, a shortage of qualified workers, and a rethinking of values will undeniably lead to an even greater flexibilization of working time. This development must be managed professionally. It is essential that working time is organized with both company and employee interests in mind - satisfied employees are simply more willing and more productive. Today, traditional time and attendance management focuses on administrative matters such as collectively bargained pay scales, wage types, account balances, bonuses and personnel costs. However, the future will see increasing importance accorded to creating an ergonomic and incentivizing working environment. The more factors there are that need to be taken into account, the more complex the management of working time. For example, collection and analysis of working time data is gaining in importance as a basis for health and integration management. Without efficient IT tools it is not possible to map the necessary processes economically and establish a working time management system that functions efficiently for the company, the customers and the employees.

Integration creates transparency

ATOSS Time and Attendance processes recorded data into a form that allows working time organization to be planned in advance. As ATOSS Time and Attendance and ATOSS Workforce Scheduling are fully integrated with one another, Workforce Management is also constantly optimized. At any point in time, the company has an overview of all the relevant working time data and can analyze it using a wide range of criteria. How much is overtime costing? Who is actually present and who can be called upon to deputize? How do the overtime and absence rates in different departments compare? The system provides the transparency required for a fast response to changes. At the same time, it creates a solid basis for decisions.
