Time Tracking

stratustime from nettime solutions has all of the features and tools businesses of any size would want in a time and attendance system. It tracks all of a business’s time needs, including when employees come and go, when they take breaks, how long they work on certain projects, and how much paid time off (PTO) they’ve accrued.

Employees have five different ways to clock in and out, as well as manage their time:

  1. Traditional time clocks: The stratustime time clocks are cloud-based and can collect information via fingerprints, magnetic stripes, bar codes, proximity badges and touch screens. The time clocks automatically and instantly transfer the time employees punch in and out into the software. This gives managers instant visibility into when their employees are arriving and leaving work each day.
  2. Mobile-friendly website: The mobile website lets remote workers manage their time via any iOS, Android or BlackBerry smartphone or tablet. Employees can use the site to clock in and out, transfer where their time is being allocated, approve their time cards, and request time off. Managers can use the mobile website to approve time off and review time sheets. The mobile-friendly site uses geofencing to define the locations where employees can punch in and out. It uses geolocation technology to monitor where employees are starting and ending their shifts.
  3. Telephones: The IVR feature allows employees to call in from any phone to clock in and out, transfer their hours, submit time sheets, and check PTO balances. With this option, employers have the ability to restrict access to the system based on phone numbers.
  4. Web kiosk: The stratustime web kiosk can be used in place of, or in addition to, a traditional time clock. The kiosk can be set up on any computer or tablet and be placed in areas of high employee traffic. With this setup, workers can quickly clock in and out. No extra hardware, software or employee training are required.
  5. Computers: The final way for employees to manage their time is from any computer connected to the internet. Employees can log in to the online portal from their desks to manage all of their time and attendance needs.
