Time and attendance software FAQs

Time and attendance is the process of tracking work hours to monitor late arrivals, early departures, time taken on breaks, as well as planned and unplanned absences. This is important because employee punctuality and attendance are vital to business productivity. On the other hand, poor timekeeping and absenteeism can result in operational failures and spiralling costs. If you do not accurately track employee time and attendance it could also result in: 


  • Under or over staffing 
  • Scheduling and rota failures 
  • Time theft (in the form of extra paid holidays or hours) 
  • Non-compliance with the law  
  • Payroll errors, and more

Keeping track of time and attendance manually is a tedious data-entry overhead. It makes it impossible to make informed decisions in real-time. And reporting on the data is also time intensive and error-prone. Switch to time and attendance software and you will be able to: 


  • Create dynamic rotas to suit any schedule 
  • Enable employees to clock in and out on a computer, mobile device or time clock 
  • Automatically populate timesheets
  • Streamline time-off requests and approvals
  • Accurately calculate variable pay elements
  • Generate in depth reports on time and attendance with actionable insights on how you can improve profitability

Unplanned absences can last anywhere from a few minutes to a number of days or many months. Persistent lateness can often be more disruptive than short spells of sickness. The Bradford Factor takes this into account and provides HR professionals with a way to measure the impact on the business.
