EmpCenter® Time & Attendance
Maximize workforce performance with complete automation
EmpCenter Time & Attendance—part of the EmpCenter workforce management suite—is an enterprise-grade, cloud-based solution that captures time and attendance, as well as labor data, and automates even the most complex pay rules, entirely through configuration. Designed to meet the needs of large and growing organizations, EmpCenter Time & Attendance allows you to automate 100% of your pay rules and compliance requirements without the expense of custom code, manual workarounds, or pockets of labor data tracked outside the system.
Complete automation is the cornerstone of strategic workforce management. By enabling 100% automation, EmpCenter Time & Attendance makes it simple to ensure timely and accurate paycheck processing while empowering your organization to control labor costs with strategic, data-driven workforce management decisions.
Capture ALL time and labor data
Chances are, you have a wide range of talented people moving your business forward. Salaried, hourly, contingent. Part time, full time, seasonal. No matter how your workforce is composed, you need a complete view in order to make the most effective long-term decisions. EmpCenter helps you achieve that level of total coverage, without compromise. Highly configurable, EmpCenter accommodates time and labor standardization on a global scale by allowing you to automate the distinct requirements of each country, office, and division within a single cloud-based platform.
Achieving total coverage also depends on meeting employees where and how they work. EmpCenter helps you blend time entry and other self-service tasks directly into each user group’s daily work, with web-based and mobile access that can be completely personalized to their specific needs. An array of complementary data collection technologies—including badge readers, biometric readers, interactive voice response (IVR) systems, and more—provide even more ways to interact with the solution. Equally critical, all of these self-service tools generate reliable, accurate, and detailed time and activity data to help your organization make strategic workforce management decisions.
Precisely control labor costs
There may be ample opportunities to reduce labor expenses with more sophisticated time management. The most common errors include:
- Overtime pay – When calculating overtime for non-exempt employees, are you using the correct ‘regular rate’ figure? If you’re not starting with the right rate, you could be overpaying employees.
- Leakage – Is payroll based on each employee’s actual hours of service? From benign rounding errors to buddy punching and the misuse of vacation time, leakage may be inflating your labor costs.
- Utilization – Are there occasions where more staff are on hand than your business requires? Are you using the optimal mix of full time, part time, contingent, and other workers to meet both performance and profitability goals? Access to better data, in a more timely fashion, can help you refine your labor mix and improve your bottom line.
- Responding to absences – Are your managers able to strategically fill open shifts with the best employee at the lowest cost? Calling in the highest wage earner can quickly max out your unplanned overtime budget.
EmpCenter Time & Attendance validates and processes employee service times according to your specific rules and policies—calculating even the most complex, multifactor pay rates, overtime rules, shift differentials, and meal deductions for all workers. Due to this breadth and depth of automation, many of our clients recoup the cost of their EmpCenter investment in fewer than 6 months—and that’s just the beginning of EmpCenter’s capabilities.
Comply with confidence
EmpCenter Time & Attendance offers the ability to automate local, state/provincial, and country-specific labor law compliance functions—no matter where your employees live and work—while simultaneously supporting your organization’s HR and union policies. This coverage delivers peace of mind and mitigates the risk of paying costly fines and penalties. And since proof of compliance is equally important for facing regulatory scrutiny with confidence, EmpCenter also provides the audit trail you need to demonstrate your organization’s compliance.
EmpCenter’s flexible rules engine also allows you to adapt more rapidly—and at a much lower expense—to changing regulations and union requirements. While customized applications hard-code your unique requirements into the system, EmpCenter manages all of your requirements entirely through configuration. As a result, it can easily be updated to address new rules—providing a cost-effective, future-proof solution, even in the most dynamic environments.
Enhance workforce productivity
With standards-based design, EmpCenter Time & Attendance removes barriers between your employees and critical workforce data. Users can access the system from virtually any web browser, and—via EmpCenter Mobile—on Androids or iDevices, with no plugins to install or apps to download. Managers have a range of tools at their disposal to communicate timely information to their teams, including email and text messages, to ensure that they can reach employees on any device and at any location.
The solution also offers unmatched control over what—and how much—labor data you can collect. Capture an unlimited number of labor distribution fields through the web or via data collection terminals on the shop floor, and use EmpCenter Analytics to co-mingle that data with information from other back-end systems like work order and financial software. With this setup, your organization gains complete insight into the relationships between labor activities, output and efficiency metrics, and top- and bottom-line results—and the power to align workforce management decisions to business goals like never before.
