Clocking in system is a time system designed to track the number of hours worked by employees. A modern clocking in system is made up of two components. The employees are required to log on when they start work and log off when they finish work. There is a host of technologies available, ranging from desktop or mobile clocking, fob or biometric clocking in machine.
The time tracking process is automated with the integration of time and attendance software. The software provides management with the tool to configure work schedules and to apply them accordingly, hours worked are automatically calculated with accuracy ready to be processed for the payroll. The data recorded can also be used to monitor punctuality and absenteeism.
