All businesses need a way to accurately track time within the organization. You’ll need to track payroll hours, but you will also need to track time spent on projects, time spent working with particular customers and more. Employee tracking software can provide invaluable assistance here, but you’ll need to know a few things before choosing a particular platform. Here are three critical considerations to make before you buy a product.
Some employee tracking software suites are designed for use by up to a specific number of employees. They cannot handle more than that number. So, make sure you’re aware of the business size supported by the software prior to making a choice. For instance, XSO’s TimeWriter tracking software is available in a standard version, which supports up to 25 employees, and a pro version, which supports up to 1,000 employees.
Increasingly, businesses need to leverage mobile technology. Workers in the field need a way to track their pay, as well as hours logged on customer projects. Administrators and executives need access to time tracking metrics on the go. Make sure the employee tracking software you purchase is mobile friendly and compatible with most smartphones and tablets.
At some point, you’ll likely need help or to have a question answered about your employee tracking software. What sort of support does the vendor offer? You should have access to online manuals, as well as online help and even support via phone and/or email if necessary.
Finding the right employee tracking software isn’t something that should be rushed, but the three considerations listed above will help you make a more informed decision. We invite you to learn more about XSO and why our tracking software should be your first choice.
