The benefits of automatic time tracking

Time tracking can help employees:

  • Identify where their time is being spent
  • Track their long-term progress
  • Take breaks and time off appropriately
  • Prioritize what’s most important
  • Focus better while working
  • Organize their workday

For businesses, benefits of time tracking include:

  • Transparency into work processes
  • Increased accountability in employees
  • Understanding of your billing and operational efficiency
  • Knowledge where resource demand is the highest
  • Tracking where the budget gets burned

In the US, filling timesheets wastes $7.4 billion a day in productivity - just from workers forgetting to log their hours

Time Tracking Tech

Manual

Simple note taking may work for small startups and businesses with few employees - where people arriving late will easily be noticed

Timesheets

Complete by either employees or supervisors, often using Excel or Google Sheets - inexpensive option but time-consuming for more than a handful of employees

Key-card

Employees sign in by punching or swiping a card or use a RFID tag or QR code - simple and efficient for one location but become complex with remote employees

Biometric data

Fingerprint and iris scanners, and face recognition - verifies identity and time and eliminates need to keep track of key card

GPS

May be used to track delivery employees, door-to-door sellers, and others - often raises privacy concerns for employees

Remote monitoring

keystrokes, activity, and web cam monitoring keep track of working hours for remote employees
