We are talking about technical evolutions taking man to space, but are skeptical to take a step towards the clouds. Well, here we only mean the cloud computing services – to be precise. Given the complexity of the current time and attendance and productivity profiling methods, it is definitely a setback for those who have not opted for a virtual and a self upgrading database yet.
A large number of businesses which have switches to cloud are already experiencing ramped up revenue in comparison to the competitors who have not. If all the rant you have been hearing about how the service helps enhance efficiency and accuracy is not enough to convince you, we will break it down for you a little more in detail.
#1: No Software Installation Required
It comes as no surprise that cloud based programs can be directly accessed through any authorised desktop devices. The purpose of saying “authorised” here is to highlight the fact that employers can restrict the tine and attendance activities to certain PCs inside the office premises.
No loopholes that lead to fraudulent activities. Also, a rather new approach to disaster proofing your records. Being web applications they naturally do not demand any room of the user. There is absolutely no need to go through the process of download and installation to clock in and out.
#2: Rise in Productivity
Presuming your current time and attendance system is a contemporary mode involving manual interpretations for payroll calculations, the outcome is bound to suffer delays due to the human factor. On the other hand, think about a system with real time analytical capabilities. It would downright reduce the burden of all clerical tasks and speed up the process.
#3: System Administration
You can’t afford to not think of having a task force in place for managing and maintaining all you technical implements. But with all your data now resting in cloud architecture, it is rest assured that the role of an IT department is peacefully ruled out when it comes to managing employee attendance information
For starters this is a network administered storage space undergoing overnight backup and hardening, and is least vulnerable to system failures. When it comes to cybercrime threats like ransom ware, data theft and computer hacking, the argument definitely goes in the favour of cloud computing. The reason being highly robust counteractive protocols put in place to fight potential breach detection.
Cloud computing systems prioritise on analysing business risks rather than scanning susceptible systems for identifying intrusion point. Data loss in case of system failure or crash is the last thing you need to worry about as the data is redundantly backed up on multiple servers. And of course these are virtual servers, not prone to the mishaps of internal crisis.
#5: Auto Updates
Cloud service providers manage the backend infrastructure all by themselves leaving you with ample amount of time to focus on other priorities. Software and UI updates occur by itself on cloud with you not having to spend a single penny on it. You would rather concentrate your IT resources over a more innovative production appliance rather than exhausting them over petty issues of system updates. At least not in the era when you have a full proof solution to avoid these obstacles.
