As countries around the world slowly begin to ease their stay at home orders with suitable restrictions, and small and mid-sized businesses plan to call back their employees to work by Attendance Software, it is vital to ensure you properly adhere to safety regulations.
But, how do you, as a business owner, monitor compliance with your federal/state/local rules to ensure a safe and healthy workplace for your employees, customers and vendors?
While the traditional punch-in and punch-out time clock or physical timesheets may seem like a potentially dangerous source of contamination, businesses are trying to find alternate methods to not just keep their employees safe but to also accurately track their time sheets. A time clock that every employee touches several times during the day obviously presents a potential source of contamination.
With time and attendance software it is easy to keep your employees safe during COVID-19. Let us find out how.

Face clocking in
As employers seek contactless solutions for employees returning to work, face recognition time clocks provides a hygienic and safe solution for employee time and attendance. Time and Attendance Software comes with face clocks that allow employees to look into the clock and register their attendance in seconds. The non-touch clocking software identifies the unique points on an employee’s face, stores the information in the system and validates the employee’s face and information as the employee’s clock in and clock out.
No physical timesheets
With digital and cloud-based time tracking apps becoming popular, employers need not use physical timesheets to track their employees. Time and Attendance Software allows employers to track their employees by using automated processes, i.e., without using any physical contact. Once an employee clocks in and out, a Time and Attendance Software can automatically approve his/her timesheet. This also reduces mundane paperwork for both the employees and management, and assists in social distancing as employees would not be filling out physical timesheets.
Instant communication on messenger
When the top priority is to take steps to protect yourself and your employees from COVID-19, how do you keep them up to date in an efficient and safe way?
Time and Attendance Software keeps you connected with your team without any physical contact. The instant alerts and messaging capabilities help you deliver reminders about shifts, breaks, and clocking in and out.
Time and Attendance Software come with a sophisticated geo-fencing capability that helps employers to track employee attendance in not just real-time, but in a real-world geographic area. Here, you can set geographical areas to limit where an employee is permitted to clock-in and clock-out. It also ensures that a clock-in is accurate and is done by the right person from the right location.
Mobile clocking options
Time and attendance software systems also allow employees to clock in and out via their smart phones, thus avoiding the risk for any physical contact. This is also a great option if you are still allowing your employees to work remotely because of the COVID-19 situation.
With COVID-19 taking a major toll on businesses, it is very important to implement a safe and contactless time and attendance software that can help you prevent the further spread of the coronavirus.
