Prognosticating With Employee Time Tracking Software

April 27, 2012 by  Filed under: Management 

Are you one of those people who can’t wait for March to be over? Well, I’m not. I ‘m very glad March has 31 days and I hope every one of those days goes nice and slow. I have multiple projects and limited time. I wish I had a crystal ball to tell me which of those projects I’ll complete and which ones will require more time. That’s called prognosticating. It means to forecast, predict, foretell, prophesy, vaticinate. Most workplaces would love to forecast the fiscal year ahead. And to some extent, they can. How, you ask hastily? With an employee time tracking.

The concept is simple. Your company engages the services of time tracking: time and labor management software which integrates seamlessly with invoicing and payroll systems you already use. The transition occurs under the watchful, skilled eyes of internet tech support who will install and train you on your new program. With a reputable company, say, one that already services over tens of thousands of individuals and companies, you can predict a successful blend of your old and the new.

Mobile time trackers work with any kind of mobile phone but they can also be set up to use land lines. The idea is to be able to clock in and clock out in real time. That way you can follow how much time is spent by whom and from where. All of this information will be part of your reports for future estimating of job costs so the sooner you switch to a time tracking app, the sooner you will begin compiling essential data to begin forecasting accurately on those upcoming bids.

In addition to simple time management, an automated time tracking app will also allow you to assign personnel appropriately and sufficiently to various jobs. It will provide job codes, making it easy for employees to clock in and out of one job and in and out of another.

That should make your clients place more confidence in your business. When they receive their invoices for labor, they can be confident that human error is minimized. Plus when your employee clocks in, they can receive their daily to-do list and minimize their uncertainties about what must be done and where. They hold the list in their hand. If they end up working on multiple jobs, your time tracking software allows you to follow their progress throughout the day.

And that invoice your customer received? You prophesied correctly. It is generated by the time tracking program as well. In fact, you can decide to make your reporting as simple or as complex as you’d like it to be. Then it benefits your business in the present as well as foretells what you will need in your future with regards to labor, materials, and other miscellaneous expenses.

Prior to the advent of the technology age, which hardly anyone was able to prognosticate, none of these options were even possibilities for you and your burgeoning business but fortunately for you, it’s not just wishful thinking, it’s reality. Check out web-based, cloud-computing, mobile time tracking and guess what? No more guesswork. Nix the crystal ball.
