Reports and what to look for?

When sourcing for the right time clock system, you want to spend a good amount of time looking at the reports that will be available in the system.  You want to make sure the system can generate the reporting that your company will use day to day, week to week, month to month, etc.

Some standard reports would be Timecard reports or Hours reports.  You'll also want reports that can show you who has missing punches or who is clocking in late.

Some more advanced reports would be job costing type reports - these reports will give you a breakdown of the hours - split into the different jobs the employee works.

The best way to figure out what reports would be useful is to get feedback from the supervisors/managers that will use the system.  You want to gather their input on what reporting would be beneficial to them.  Once you have this list, verify with your "sales person" if their system has all of the reports that you want.

You don't want to pay for a system that doesn't meet all your reporting needs.
