Often times Clocktower customers have multiple methods of time capture. For instance a company with Light Industrial, Clerical and Administrative workers may receive paper time slips that have already been approved by their clients. In order to process payroll and billing however, these companies still need to enter the time into a database. By entering that time in Clocktower they maintain a single database, or system of record, for all temporary employee time.
The benefits of entering time into Clocktower from paper timesheets are countless. Even though this time is collected via paper or fax, entering the time into Clocktower allows your employees and clients to log in and view the time and work history.
Staffing clients that use paper time slips often have several people (floor supervisors, department heads etc) signing them. This can be difficult for the client’s HR manager and AP department. By entering the time in Clocktower they will have a visual account of all of their activity.
Tracking Others’ Time
Permissions in Clocktower are always set at the Project level. All time entered in Clocktower must be entered on a Project. If a temporary employee has permission to Track Own Time to Project 1532, and you have permission to Track Others Time on Project 1532, you can enter time for that employee on that Project.
Marty Brown, a temporary employee at your staffing company, has Permission to Track Own Time on “Project 1532 – Machine Operator” in Clocktower. However, Marty turns in a signed/approved paper timesheet at the end of the week.
You, Max Stone, a staffing master, have Permission to Track Others Time on Project 1532 in Clocktower. When you receive the approved paper timesheet, you simply log into Clocktower and go to the Timesheets tab. When you select Marty Brown you will have the ability to enter time for Marty on Project 1532. Easy as that!
