A time and attendance workforce software.
TCP, formerly TimeClock Plus, is a scalable corporate level workforce labor management solution. The software provides key functionality for time and attendance, leave management, employee scheduling, and time collection.
TCP gives the ability to track, view and report employee information in true, undelayed, real-time. The software lets management make decisions on the fly, and helps lower labor costs significantly. Using the power of Microsoft’s SQL Server, TCP offers the scalability required by today’s growing and expanding companies.
TCP allows businesses to monitor, control and report all aspects of employee time and attendance while reducing the cost of overtime, administrative labor and clerical mistakes. All this comes without the cost normally associated with traditional corporate level applications.
TCP can deliver payroll data to virtually all payroll packages and services using the Payroll Modules, fulfilling the next logical step in the process of reporting employee hours for payroll. Scheduling, Hour Restrictions, Flexible Accrual Rules, Multi-Company support, and many other tools are supported to meet the needs of today’s business. Comprehensive security protects sensitive employee information from unauthorized access while at the same time, limiting individual supervisors or managers to information for only those employees within their department. For companies that are committed to true automation in employee time tracking, TimeClock Plus is the solution.
Don’t waste valuable time keying in employee hours!
TimeClock Plus takes the next logical step in automating the process of doing payroll by creating a bridge between the employee data collected by TimeClock Plus, and many of the popular payroll packages or services available today.
At the end of each pay period, depending on the payroll software to which the data will be transferred, TimeClock Plus will either create a file which your payroll software will import, placing all the employee data in the appropriate fields, or it will physically place the files directly in the fields in your payroll software. Data may also be exported to most spreadsheet and database programs.
Payroll information, such as employee name, ID., regular hours, overtime 1, overtime 2, tips, department, etc., is exported saving valuable time in the once tedious job of processing payroll. There is no need to key all the information into your payroll package.
TimeClock Plus interfaces with over 200 different software packages/services and very likely, the one you use is included.
The Job Cost Module is a powerful and inexpensive addition to TimeClock Plus" which offers a much more detailed means of tracking employee time and attendance. In addition to the tracking features, there are more Cost Code Reports designed to show how much time has been accumulated against a particular job or task.
Management simply keeps a current list of all possible Cost Codes, which is much like the Master Job Code List within TimeClock Manager. These cost codes are globally available to all employees who have been authorized to use them. The employee will clock in as normal at the beginning of each shift, and the system will prompt him/her for the job cost code to which the forthcoming hours should be applied. He or she may key in the code or select it from the list presented.
Example: An auto body shop company’s employee clocks in upon arrival for work under the Job Code # 16 (department) listed as: 16 Winshield Repair. This is the position within the company which this employee holds and all hours worked in this department are accumulated as a Windshield Repairman, no matter the particular auto being worked on.
As the day begins, the employee will select from the available list on the time clock, his first job of the day - Cost Code- 65 Mustang- W7JK11: Body Work: Windshield Repair, which is the Job Cost Code assigned to the 1965 Green Ford Mustang that came in for repair earlier in the week. Two hours later, the employee finishes the Mustang and moves on to the next job assigned by his supervisor, the 1994 Honda Civic, Lic # JP7877, which has also been assigned a Job Cost Code. He will select Change Job Cost Code on the time clock and select the Honda from the list. The windshield repairman never actually clocked out – merely changed the account to which his labor will accumulate until the next Cost Code change.
Throughout the entire shift, the employee follows this procedure starting and finishing individual jobs. Management now has a record of all the accumulated hours this employee spent in Windshield Repair (from the Job Code), and also all hours that were spent on each individual automobile (from the Job Cost Code) worked on during the shift. A report can be generated which will show the total hours spent by each individual employee on each individual job where hours were accumulated. One may also print a report detailing a particular Job Cost Code which will reflect each employee’s accumulated hours against that job.
Completely interactive and in true undelayed real-time, the primary functionality of the RDT 100 and 200 Series terminals is to allow employees to communicate interactively with TimeClock Plus. Employee time keeping transactions are not stored at the time clock, but written directly to TimeClock Plus’ database, as they happen. This means, when an employee clocks in using any RDT 100/200 series terminal, all the business intelligence of TimeClock Plus which is hosted on the server controls that transaction. Employee restrictions such as schedule limits, overtime limits, etc., are enforced in real-time, and prevent the time consuming exceptions typically realized at the end of the pay period with conventional polling, store and forward clocks. In true real-time, one second after an employee clocks in, any person on the network with proper authorization can view the fact that the employee has just clocked in.
The RDT 200 Plus boasts the ability to function in both online and offline modes. This means that in the event that normal real-time communication between the RDT and its host is lost, the 200 Series will begin taking steps to correct the state. If unsuccessful, it will automatically begin accepting transactions in offline mode, and will continue to do so until it recognizes the connection has been reestablished. At that point, all punches collected will be immediately delivered to the TimeClock Plus database, and those records will be flagged as offline punches for tracking purposes.
Commonly used among health care professionals, the Shift Differential Module allows for shift premiums or rate differentials to be added to employee shifts that are worked. The Shift Differential Module can automatically change the job codes employees are clocked in under at specific times, add a premium, or multiply be a pre-specified factor for that shift. The shift premiums can be limited to specific days of the week where necessary. Multiple 24-hour shift periods within one company may be configured when complex employee scheduling and time tracking is required.
