What’s important in choosing an attendance recording App for your staff?

In the first of two blogs about using a smart phone App for employees to record their attendance, we explore the key issues that experience has taught us you should look for.

There are three important questions to ask when introducing attendance recording via a smart phone App to your workforce:

  1. Is the App easy to use for the employees?
  2. Is the App easy to download with the connection to my time and attendance software already set up?
  3. Is it secure and not open to fraud by the employee?

Users of our Log-In App know that they can confidently say “Yes” to all the above. easyLog has created not only a simple to install and use App for the employee, but a solution that gives the employer confidence that any attendance record has been generated by the identified person. This latter point we’ll cover in a subsequent blog but in this one we’ll address those first two questions.

The Log-In App is downloaded free of charge for the employee from the Apple, Microsoft and Google stores. easyLog supplies a five-digit Customer Code number to each organisation that the employee is prompted to enter when first opening the App. This automatically sets up the parameters in the App to link it with the web browser-based back office software that collates and reports on the time and attendance records received from the smart phones.

Next the user is asked to enter their own unique ID number given to them by their employer. This is saved in the App and means it will not need to be remembered again at the point of use.

And that’s it. When the employee uses the App they are presented with large, clear buttons that they touch to record if they are arriving or leaving a site. There are other user-settable options also to enable the additional clocking in or out from a break and a ‘panic’ alert feature that will automatically send an email to defined individuals on pressing.

If you would like to know more about these features, other Apps in our range and the time and attendance and staff scheduling modules with which they integrate, please call on 01892 834406 or email us on info@easylog.co.uk
