This time and attendance software includes employee self-service portals that your workers can use to clock in and out and submit time-off requests to supervisors. You can also choose to offer a shift-bidding feature that lets employees bid for shifts when other employees call in sick. This application can track time and attendance for both hourly and salaried employees.
The system includes access controls that let you designate locations where employees can clock in and out; for example, you may choose to require employees to be on site if they clock in from their laptop or use the mobile app. It also lets you restrict the hours when employees can record time.

This employee time and attendance software has nearly every administrative capability we looked for in time tracking systems. Like all of the systems we reviewed, Acumen Data Systems' ClockVIEW provides an audit trail, which is an uneditable record of your employees' time. This feature is important for businesses that win government contracts, because it helps them comply with federal labor regulations. The system also allows you to retroactively adjust your timesheets and recalculate pay.
You can contact Acumen Data Systems for help and support by phone and email. Tech support and system maintenance services are available at an additional cost.
