Many businesses still allow their employees to register their work hours on a piece of paper or in a spreadsheet, leaving them with the option to note down imprecise hours. But rounded up hours can actually hurt your budget in the long run. Luckily there is a solution.

Registering ten minutes extra once won’t hurt your budget. But if you calculate the cost of those ten minutes, multiply with the number of employees and add the number of times those extra ten minutes are noted, then you will suddenly have a hole in your budget, paying for work hours for which you get nothing in return.

That’s why some very clever people have invented a bulletproof safety net for you. The time clock software. Forget about the old-fashion and irregular registration tools. With a time clock, your employees simply clock in when they arrive and clock out when they leave on any online device. That way, you can keep a precise overview of exact worked hours – and more importantly, you will only pay for actual worked hours. As simple as that.

There are many different time clock solutions out there, and you deserve nothing less but the very best system. Therefore, we suggest you take a look at this list, informing you about the functions it has to have in order to meet all of your needs, not only saving you money and closing the gap in your budget, but also saving you time on payroll, time management and employee management.
