Having to manually track employee hours is an undertaking – scanning inboxes for time tracking notifications by the payroll administrator, analyzing time cards, and more. It’s followed by inane copy and pasting into a spreadsheet and hoping everything was submitted properly to begin with.
And when there are discrepancies, whether they’re missing documents or unapproved entries, it takes dozens of emails to employees and managers to set things right. Manual time tracking can turn into a full-time job, with some payroll admins spending hours and even days collecting, reviewing, and submitting payroll.
Time-tracking software can help, but only if it’s intuitive and easy to use. If the time tracking process is too complex, employees and managers may be reluctant to follow through on each step. This is especially true when they’re asked to use multiple systems to track regular hours, PTO, and overtime. If there are too many confusing steps in the process, then employees and managers look to the already-overloaded payroll manager to walk them through or do it for them. And those requests come on top of the additional time it takes payroll admins to compile different hour types into a spreadsheet before manually calculating overtime.
