Employee Management Software – How every business large and small can benefit

At Chronologic, we have been providing Employee Management Software for over 20 years now. In that time, as you can imagine, we’ve dealt with lots of clients from a wide range of sectors. And we can say, without doubt, that every business, no matter what size or shape, has benefitted greatly from using our products. So can yours.

Many companies know they need a new, cloud-based time and attendance system to replace their current method, or to centralise several different processes into one, easy-to-access account. Often it is navigating the many features of each product and deciding which best suits your business needs that can leave people spoilt for choice as to which one to go for – which is where we come in to guide you through the process.

But before we get on to the many ways employee management software can benefit your business, let’s first explore what that term means.

What is Employee Management Software?

Employee management software is an umbrella term for the many different processes a business needs in order to successfully manage its workers. Depending on how many employees you have and your work model, these needs can vary from simply tracking workers’ hours and managing absence to holiday management, rota planning, creating automated reports and even more complex HR and H&S processes – in other words, a more complete workforce management system that is capable of far more functions and provides much deeper insights into your business operation.

If you work across multiple sites or locations, your needs will be different to a business with just one office. Likewise, if your staff has several shift patterns, and you offer a varied work model that includes remote and hybrid staff in addition to on-site, there are features you will require – such as the possibility of being able to clock in and out using a clocking-in app – that other companies won’t need or even want.

Do you need alerting when someone’s first aid certification or forklift licence is about to expire, for example? Yes? We have the perfect system for you. No? We have the perfect system for you, too.

Our professional team is trained in getting to the heart of what it really is that you need your employee management software solution to do.

How can it benefit your business?

There’s a very long list of ways your business – and you, yourself – will significantly benefit from using one of our market-leading products. Firstly, you will save money. Your business will run far more cost-effectively by only paying employees for the hours they have worked and by having much more efficient holiday tracking and absence management systems in place. You will also gain peace of mind from the knowledge that your information is accurate. Someone is either in or they aren’t – and your real-time dashboard can keep you updated from wherever you are. Employee management software also keeps you compliant with UK working regulations regarding shift length, break times, holiday allowance, etc. It’s always a good idea to know you’re keeping on the right side of the law. Lastly, but what, for some is almost the most important factor – peace of mind. The reassurance that comes from knowing your software is doing its job makes yours so much easier.
