Time management

Improve workforce productivity with our innovative time management system

Empower employees to work smarter and get more done with our fully integrated time management, attendance and time card software. 

Master time management techniques for better results

It can often feel like a new email lands in our inbox every 10 seconds, the phone never stops ringing and everyone in the office is demanding your attention. 

That’s why it’s so important to master time management. Failing to properly manage your and your employees’ time can drastically impact your team, company and overall performance.

One of the most effective ways to improve time management across your business is to introduce time management solutions, like time card software or employee time clock software.

How to manage time more effectively

Before you discover more about how technology and software can help, there are some simple steps you can take to manage time more effectively in your business.

Assess your time

Calculate how you currently spend your time, so you know where you’re needed most and can properly plan your day.

Set goals

Give your team objectives to help guide them through their day and include set deadlines to provide extra motivation.

Use a to-do list

Encourage employees to use a to-do list to help them plan their day, keep track of time and beat the clock.


Ensure efforts aren’t wasted on the wrong things by identifying important tasks and knowing what to focus on first.

Minimise distractions

Encourage your team to use set periods to check emails and avoid social media as much as possible.

Don’t multitask

Ask employees to focus on one task at a time or group similar tasks on their to-do list together to get things done quicker and to a higher standard.


Give your people the opportunity for growth and development by encouraging them to share their workload with other team members.

Take breaks

Overworking is detrimental to health and business success. Take regular breaks and step away from the desk.

Use technology

Time management solutions and systems can help you focus on high priority tasks and cross admin off your to-do list with automation.
