Attendance and Payroll System

After years of dealing with inaccuracies and inefficiencies caused by manual workforce tracking, Verilog made a decision to transition to an automated labour management solution. At the time, manual processes burdened many of the organization's staff members on a daily basis. The staff had to manually calculate and enter large amounts of data to transfer information from employees' paper timesheets into an electronic payroll system. This error-prone, labor-intensive process was costing the company time and money, while decreasing employee job satisfaction levels.

With the end goal of becoming fully automated, Ability Beyond Disability set out to find a labor management system that would allow better monitoring of and reporting on workforce activity. Although the organization's integration goals were straightforward, it had some non-traditional requirements for managing workforce time and attendance, due to the nature of its business.

Operational Benefits and ROI

Our System made it easy for companies to quickly reach their integration goals; however, the organization still faced significant challenges around managing workforce time and attendance. Company supervisors were well aware of problems such as repeated lateness, employees fraudulently clocking in for coworkers (known as "buddy punching"), and coworkers unofficially covering shifts for one another. But, prior to implementing the system, supervisors had no way to consistently prevent, prove, or correct these behaviors.

Now, with the system, employees can no longer disguise lateness or fraudulently log hours. Supervisors have clear insight into employee activity and can address questionable behaviors before they become widespread. As Brown explains: "We're able to monitor the workforce better to know who's clocking in late. Attendance and Payroll System has provided a method to hold staff more accountable for their work time."

Many supervisors are also taking advantage of the full scope of system features, including reporting, in order to improve their ability to effectively manage employees. According to Brown: "...Supervisors are enthusiastically learning to utilize the tools provided through Attendance and Payroll System. They can monitor their staff; they can see who's clocking in late. They really use it."

By changing the way they manage workforce time and attendance, the company has drastically improved operational efficiencies, reduced payroll-processing hours and costs, and eliminated data entry errors. Discontinuing manual labor management is a decision that they highly recommend to other companies facing similar challenges. As a result of Ability Beyond Disability's transition to web-based automation, positive ripple effects continue to flow throughout the organization.
