Most businesses use a variety of software on a day-to-day basis, from basics like the Microsoft Office Suite to more specialized programs like payroll management or even proprietary software that’s unique to the company. We live in an age where technology makes our lives (and our jobs)—hopefully—more efficient.
One area where many businesses could still benefit from a technological upgrade is with employee management software. Gone are the days of manually managing your workforce, including all of the potential pitfalls that go along with it.
Here are several benefits of using employee management software.
Know Who’s Working Where When
For businesses with multiple job sites or a mobile workforce, it can be nearly impossible to keep track of which employees are clocked in at which job sites – let alone if the right employees are. A good workforce management software has this functionality built in.
ExakTime, for example, uses geofencing and GPS tracking to ensure that your employees are at the job sites they’re meant to be at. And in case of emergency, you can use the same system to know who you need to get a hold of.
Get Instant Access to the Information You Need
The bigger your company gets, the harder and harder it is to keep track of all the information you need to make the best decisions.
Staff management software typically makes this easier, whether it’s through notes from employees/supervisors the field, data collection about how much specific projects or tasks are costing you, and even actionable time tracking reports that you can use to determine how many employees you need on a given job or project, among other key decisions.
Work from Anywhere
As more and more software goes to the cloud, it’s only natural that your workforce management system moves there as well.
Making used of web-based time clock software and cloud-based employee management systems allows you to work from anywhere, on any device with an internet connection. This means you can work from the office, from home, or even on the road. It all depends on your schedule.
