A new employee time-tracking app, designed to monitor attendance for employees in different jobs, could help employers reduce turnover, boost productivity and reduce costs.
Key points:The app allows workers to track their attendance in real-time and is free to use, according to an analysis of the app’s websiteBy downloading the app, employees can access the company’s ‘vibrant’ network of time-management systemsThe app has received more than 500,000 downloads in the last 24 hoursThe app uses a proprietary software technology developed by IBM to monitor employee attendance at work and the employee’s performance to assess how well they are performingThe app also has an ‘Attendance Management’ feature that allows workers access to their employee’s time-trackers and provides a daily summary of their performance and productivity, which can be used to assess their attendance.
The app’s software is proprietary, meaning the company does not disclose its source code.
The company behind the app is called Attendance, and it is available for download on the company website for free.
The application allows employees to access the ‘vibrant’ network, which is the company-wide IT system for employees and is designed to support all aspects of the workplace, including IT security, accounting, payroll, IT finance, payroll management, IT customer service, human resources and more.
Attendancy’s time management system is designed for companies with large and small groups, according the company.
Its software also supports IBM’s ‘Vibrant Collaboration Platform’ (VCP), which allows employees in multiple departments to collaborate and communicate in real time.
Attends also has ‘In-Person Visits’, where employees can come to meetings to have their questions answered and can view the attendance record for their employer’s event, according.
Employees can use the app to check their attendance and compare it to others’, and can set a reminder to check on their attendance every two weeks.
The service is also free to download for use.
Employers can set their own time-limit on attendance, with the option to set a daily limit of three hours per day.
Employee attendance is tracked in real life through the app by a ‘Time Clock’, which shows the time elapsed between the time employees arrived at the office and the time they left it, according a website for the app.
By default, the app allows employees with multiple times in the office to monitor their attendance, but the app also allows them to check the attendance of their ‘vocal’ time-watchers.
The team behind the App also claims the app offers an ‘optimised’ experience, allowing for greater user engagement.
The software also has a ‘Vibe’ feature which can give employees a sense of the ‘tourism vibe’ the company has created for them.
This allows employees and other stakeholders to work more productively in the organisation, which helps employees feel more connected with the company and with their colleagues, according an Attends.
The new app comes after a spate of other apps designed to help workers manage time at work.
The recent release of the time-lapse calendar app by Timelapse Labs, which has been downloaded more than 600,000 times, also has users using their time-calculators to calculate their attendance over time.
Employment Minister Michaelia Cash announced the latest version of the Timelapses app earlier this year, which comes with an option to enable a user to view attendance data for employees on the organisation’s calendar.
This option allows users to access their employee time record, which they can see at the top of the screen.
Employed workers can also see their ‘personal’ time record and see their attendance status in realtime, with this data displayed alongside the data for all employees.
Employer-sponsored apps that can help workers with their time management can help employees boost their productivity, reduce costs and avoid turnover.
The technology can help companies reduce turnover by boosting employee productivity, boosting productivity by increasing employee engagement and reducing costs, according research by Accenture.
The cost of attendance management systems for large organisations could be around $100 million annually, according Accenture, and there are several other apps and services that could help employees manage time better, such as Timelapsed.
The latest version is available to download free of charge from the company homepage.
The ABC has requested comments from the ABC about the Attends app and its time-keeping technology.
