Maximize your employees’ potential with time management software

Quality time management and attendance software ensures employees are involved, satisfied and effective. It's ideal for HR professionals.

Plan, execute and manage your overall performance

Ultimately, it’s about effectively planning and managing your time in order to prioritize goals and maximize productivity.

Good time management will ensure you work smarter and increase the output of key deliverables for your business. Failure to effectively manage your time – and that of your employees – can significantly impact your team and the overall performance of your company.

What is time management software?

Time management software enables managers to track hours worked by their people and teams. It's also useful for companies who bill clients and customers by the hour.

Monitoring time management and productivity in your company can be tricky. Think about it: you’re not dealing with employees simply clocking in and out at one centralized office space these days.

With the rise in flexible and remote working, you might have one or more satellite offices, employees working in different time zones, a mix of contracts to manage – along with freelance workers and external project teams.

This is where Sage HR software steps in. Utilizing innovative cloud-based technology, our time management solutions will ensure you can securely track the time and attendance of your employees from anywhere around the world. This, in turn, means you have instant access to the data you need to make critical insights about your business.

Why should your company implement a time and attendance system?

You might think that attendance tracking software and time clock systems are just more work for everyone; an added complexity that you don’t need. However, the benefits of having a complete overview of where your employees are spending their time are huge. Being able to access key reporting and analytics means you can effectively strategize and make informed business decisions, leveraging results into your planning. 

With so many competing priorities in the modern workplace, time management systems allow you to take back control of your time, resulting in increased productivity in your workforce.

Track employee time with attendance software

Sage HR software for time tracking is designed around the needs of your business – that means it’s flexible, easy to use and can be securely accessed on any device.

Time management software benefits

Time management is an incredibly important skill at all levels of a business. With emails landing in your inbox every ten seconds, noisy offices, and endless additions to your calendar, it’s more difficult than ever to get through your to-do list.

With 70% of professionals globally working from home at least once a week*, it’s clear that managing your time effectively from any location is an essential skill for all employees. Here’s how implementing time management skills in your business can increase productivity and provide critical insights for employees at every level.

Prioritize the most important tasks first

Focus on the most urgent tasks first and then methodically work through your list to ensure you’re spending time on the key business priorities. Delegating tasks to co-workers will also save time while providing them with opportunities for self-development.

Remove distractions

Working in an office comes with its distractions – coffee breaks, chatty colleagues, and so on – but so does working remotely or from home. Ensure you keep on target with employee time tracking software.
