Advance time tracking - assigning points to attendance infractions

Do you ever have employees that come in late or leave early?  Most systems can easily track this information for you and you can then run reports and find out how often someone is coming in late or leaving early.  Pretty basic feature.

How about absences?  Do you have employees that are constantly absent?  Whether it's excused or unexcused, it's always good to be able to report on this and get metrics on this incident.

However, on top of this type of reporting, some systems have advanced features that allow you to associate point values to these types of incidences.  For example, let's say you associate a value of .25 to every time a person comes In Late.  After they have done this 4 times, it would register a total point value of 1.00.  Expanding on this, let's say you associate a value of 1.50 to every unexcused absence.  You then can set triggers at certain point thresholds.

If someone then hits 10 points, you might want the software to trigger a reminder to have you issue this employee a verbal warning.  25 points might remind you to issue a written warning.  And 50 points results in a reminder for termination.

If this type of reporting will benefit your company, make sure the system you purchase has this feature.  However, if you don't know what you're looking for, how can you ask - right?  Talk to an expert and they'll point you in the right direction.  I happen to be one.  I have implemented several hundred systems personally.  Email me and let's start a conversation - pduong@tabletpunch.com.
