EmpCenter® Time & Attendance
Getting the paycheck right is just the beginning
EmpCenter Time & Attendance—an integrated part of the EmpCenter workforce management suite—is an enterprise-grade, web-based solution that captures time and labor data and automates the most complex pay rules, entirely through configuration. Designed for large employers and global enterprises, this means there are no compromises in helping your organization automate 100% of your complex pay rules and compliance requirements. No costly customization, no manual workarounds, and no pockets of labor data tracked outside the system.
Complete automation is the cornerstone of strategic workforce management. By assuring 100% automation, EmpCenter Time & Attendance makes it simple to ensure timely and accurate paycheck processing… but it also allows you to achieve measurable business results.
Capture time and labor data
EmpCenter’s Time & Attendance capabilities are designed to address the needs of your entire workforce. Unlike commodity-grade applications, EmpCenter’s intuitive web experience supports your salaried employees in addition to hourly staff—providing an enterprise-wide view of labor activities. Highly configurable, EmpCenter accommodates time and labor standardization on a global scale by allowing you to automate the distinct requirements of each office, division, and country on a single platform.
Most employers make EmpCenter’s web-based data capture available to all salaried and hourly employees. An array of complementary data collection technologies provide reliable, accurate, and detailed time and labor data for any industry and working environment.
Control labor costs
EmpCenter Time & Attendance validates and processes employee interactions according to your specific rules and policies—calculating even the most complex, multifactor pay rates, overtime rules, shift differentials, and meal deductions with 100% automation. Unlike a system that only handles the basic ‘punch in/punch out’ transactions, EmpCenter controls and manages overtime and eliminates manual payroll errors, which typically account for 1-3% of total payroll costs in a manual or partially automated environment. Many clients can achieve a payback in under 6 months on their EmpCenter investment from these savings alone, and that’s only the start of EmpCenter capabilities.
Comply with confidence
EmpCenter Time & Attendance offers the ability to automate certain state/provincial, local, and country-specific labor law compliance functions, while simultaneously supporting your organization’s HR and union policies. This coverage delivers peace of mind and avoidance of costly fines and penalties. And since proof of compliance is equally important to contend with increased regulatory scrutiny, EmpCenter provides the audit trail you need to demonstrate your organization’s compliance with such regulations.
EmpCenter’s flexible rules engine also allows you to adapt more rapidly—and at a much lower expense—to changing regulations and union requirements. Whereas a customized application hard-codes your unique requirements into the system, EmpCenter manages these entirely through configuration. EmpCenter can be easily adjusted to address the new rules, providing a future-proof solution for the most dynamic environments.
Deploy a global solution
Time and attendance has historically been deployed on a site-by-site or country-by-country basis, relying on multiple and disparate systems in order to support local labor laws and requirements. However, organizations are increasingly looking for a single workforce management solution that can support their world-wide requirements.
EmpCenter Time & Attendance offers unparalleled capabilities in this interconnected world. Our clients have deployed EmpCenter in North America, Europe, Latin America, the Middle East, and Asia because we go beyond the basics of supporting local languages, date, number, and currency formats. Unique in the industry, EmpCenter can support local labor regulations in any country – without any custom code. The result is a true picture of your global labor costs and ensured compliance across the enterprise.
Enhance workforce productivity
With an open 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 to business goals like never before.
Pairing transformative workforce management capabilities with a simple user experience, EmpCenter Time & Attendance can get your paychecks right and much, much more.
