Clock Card Machines
Sirens and Bells
In February 1992 we opened for business, so we know a lot about the problems you face, and, we have many different solutions to solve your Attendance, Overtime and Staff issues.
A man with a watch has a good idea of the time, a man with two is not so sure.
My company doesn't have a clocking system for my staff? Why would I need one?
South African law states: "Employers must provide a manual or automatic attendance register for workers. Employers are to retain records of these registers for at least 3 years".
My salaries and wages are my largest expense, but how do you control it?
With an accurate and reliable clocking in system you are in control of tardiness, absenteeism and overtime.
My company has a big problem with staff disputes arriving at work late, taking excessive lunch breaks or leaving early?
Sentri Systems time and attendance solutions provide the 'ammunition' to handle these disputes, and although it is the employees' responsibility to clock in and out, many companies adopt the NO Clock! NO Pay! policy and only pay staff for completed hours of work.
My company spend thousands on overtime. How accurate are our overtime records?
TurboTime T & A software requires the employer set up the parameters for overtime rules, so you are in full control.
No more I left after 5. How long after 5?
I would like to know how much sick leave has a specific employee taken in this cycle at the click of a button?
You can monitor your employees absenteeism for any time period and for any (or all) 200 plus absentee reasons.
My staff work overtime because they "can" not necessarily because they need to, to complete a job?
As stated above because you the employer control the overtime parameters, you are ultimately in control of the overtime worked. There is even functionality that requires all overtime to be approved so your staff can't finish their shift at 06:00 and only clock out at 09:00 and still get overtime.
I always have a line outside your payroll office that occurs after EVERY payday?
Time Attendance solutions from Sentri Systems provide accurate results and if the optional payroll interface is selected the figures exported are a true reflection of the hours worked.
My staff spend far too much time calculating my employees' hours worked on a weekly/monthly basis?
With the exception of the mechanical clock card machine, all calculations are computerized. This also means that possibility of "human error" is minimized.
We currently use a manual attendance system and I am certain "buddy clocking" occurs in my business?
All Sentri Systems biometric solutions eliminate the possibility of buddy clocking occurring in any business.
My company wants our employees' productivity to increase? Can the software help me?
Are you paying you employees to work or for being at work? TurboTime Job Costing compares the amount of time an employee spends at the work place and compares it to the amount of time he actually spends working.
My company also wants our managers' and supervisors' productivity to increase?
Because the T & A systems are computerized the managers and supervisors have more time to get on with what they are employed to do, manage and supervise.
Can a computerized Time and Attendance system help to reduce my payroll costs and increase my bottom line?
Most definitely YES, the amount of money saved on unnecessary overtime, added to the amount of time saved manually calculating work hours will have a substantial, positive effect on your bottom line.
I want a happier workforce, will an accurate Time Attendance System help?
Once your staff are used to using the system (within one or two days) they will realize that they benefit as much as the company does.
My wages/salary queries do I have in a week/month, especially overtime are getting out of control, how does your system help?
Many companies are not large enough to have an employee whose sole job is the administration of their payroll, this job is usually given to a senior person who has other important jobs to fulfill. The introduction of a computerized systems especially if linked to payroll will greatly reduce the queries this person has to resolve.
How can I tell how much time my staff are "stealing" on a daily/weekly/monthly basis?
Take the following scenario:
You employ 100 workers and lets say they all work 234 days in a year, if each employee arrives late by one minute and leaves early by one minute every day at the end of the year they have "stolen" 780 man hours> TurboTime T & A software highlights all late comings and early departures for you. You can even apply rounding which, if you choose to use this function, allows you to deduct, say, 15 minutes if an employee is more than 5 minutes late etc.
How can I eliminate "ghost" employees that I suspect are on my payroll?
"Ghost" employees account for a large amount of time fraud. Sentri systems biometrics solutions go a long way to eliminating these non-existent people from you payroll. With the use of the TurboTime Audit Trail numerous companies have caught and successfully prosecuted payroll administrators guilty of this "pastime".
I have a large company where managers can only work with their specific staff. Do you have a multi-user system?
TurboTime uses an MSSQL Database which is geared toward a multi-user environment. Our largest client currently has 30 users accessing the system on a daily basis.
Can I see, on my PC Screen, how many times a specific employee has been "sick" on a Monday this year?
With over 200 absentee codes you can monitor which ever reason you choose and the colour coding of the report and the on screen calendar make it easy to see if there are any patterns.
