Zip Clock vs. Tanda

Here are the benefits of using Zip Clock in the workplace.

Paper timesheets and punch cards are a thing of the past. Like many other operational functions in the workplace, the process of employee timekeeping has gone digital – and for good reason

Today’s time and attendance systems provide businesses with important data that is needed to track and manage all aspects of employees’ time at work, including clock-in and clock-out times, logged overtime, weekly schedules, and much more.

Tanda has done a decent job in providing some of the basics when it comes to digital timekeeping, however, Zip Clock’s features and functionalities far surpass what the competition has to offer.

Picking Up Where Tanda Left Off

At a glance, employee time and attendance tracking should be a fairly seamless task. Once shifts are assigned, the agreement is that each team member will show up and work that designated shift – no more and no less, unless requested by the employer. Unfortunately, it’s not that simple.

Two major elements that prove to make employee time and attendance truly arduous are

  • Concerns surrounding time theft
  • The legalities regarding strict labor laws

When failing to bring attention to each, the business suffers and ultimately faces the grim reality of shutting down.

Unlike Tanda, Zip Clock’s capabilities and solutions go beyond the norm, working as a scalable platform to aid businesses in overcoming these areas of concern, while also cutting labor costs and increasing the bottom line.

Here is what Zip Clock can offer Tanda

Highly Accurate Timekeeping

With an advanced biometric scanner in place, the time clock’s hardware eliminates the common issue of “buddy punching,” where one employee clocks in for another employee who has not yet arrived to work.

Made accessible only to each individual, the system works by taking a biometric scan of a fingerprint, permitting the clock in/out of each team member.

This system of timekeeping holds everyone accountable for his or her schedule and attendance, providing an audit trail for those who are consistently tardy. Conversely, opportunities are also presented to reward employees for their punctuality.

Eliminates Labor Law Violations

Labor law violations are costly and if not abided by, can result in lawsuits, a damaging reputation, and business shutdown.

Zip Clock works in real-time, tracking every minute of an employee’s shift. If an employee is approaching overtime or a meal period violation, management will be notified and reminded that team member to clock out before the violation occurs. Similarly, if a minor is reaching a point in maxing out the daily/weekly hours permitted to work, a warning will be brought to management’s attention.

The software also displays visual indicators in the form of gamification on the time clock to inform employees of when they are approaching a violation.

The software is also mobile, so employees and employers can track working times and breaks through their smartphone or tablet. When it comes to labor laws, this is especially practical for management, as the app can be accessed at any time, even when not onsite. If an employee forgets to clock out for the day or clock back in from lunch, a manager can easily and quickly make any necessary adjustments from his/her phone.

This system of timekeeping holds everyone accountable for his or her schedule and attendance, providing an audit trail for those who are consistently tardy. Conversely, opportunities are also presented to reward employees for their punctuality.

Reduces Labor Costs

Accurate labor tracking ensures resources are being optimally invested. Because buddy punching and time theft is no longer possible, employees will only be compensated for their time that was actually worked.

And because a digital log is stored through the software, it will become clear if employees are consistently racking up overtime hours and working later than their scheduled times. Companies lose tons on OT annually; don’t fall victim, as well.

It’s difficult to achieve profitability when overspending in labor costs. Zip Clock will play a pivotal role in keeping labor costs low.
