Investing in attendance solutions - payroll in personnel management packets
 
A solution Attendance Payroll HR effectiveness should always have a harmonious combination between hardware (timekeeper, computer, network) and application software. Some businesses have not realized this, it had to accept much pity unnecessary waste. According to the company's total shares Elite Solutions a consulting business and management solutions provider in Vietnam, when investing in timekeeping software - Payroll, many businesses have had to replace the whole timekeeper system previously purchased expensive because not only find compatible software. On timekeeper market, businesses can meet all kinds of items, from high-end line of Virdi Korea, Singapore ... the kind ABRIVISION-ordinary from China, Taiwan, Malaysia ... prices are also very long, which confused buyers. Even even vendors also proved embarrassing to choose the form of distribution of this item. Some places sell timekeeper as office equipment, it is integral to the operation of the software. Some places have thought about the need for basic timekeeping software, but their software is not connected with the staff - Payroll. The omission of the supplier inadvertently cause damage to its business clients.
 
The model applies to activities timekeeping IT - Payroll
 
A payroll timekeeping system operates through the following steps:
1. Noting the time - to employees in attendance card
2. Take the card data was taken from Timekeeper, analysis to generate attendance reports
3. Using attendance reports to generate payroll, payroll in addition can also depend on some other factors.
 
In the old model of the solution, step (1) is made by the mechanical timekeeper, works as a stopwatch timekeeping card into the paper's staff. By the end of the month, HR personnel must perform step (2) and (3), by reading the attendance card, plus free and enter the number of hours worked by hand into excel. In the new model, electronic timekeeper (or card fingerprint sensor with timekeeping software, which can be done step (1) and (2) quickly and accurately. This helps type give three following issues:
 
- HR staff spend a lot of time for the review, and now must pay for all that time.
- Accuracy of the review of the public is not high. With workload timekeeping for 100 people every month, the staff was very easy mistake. The calculation of the error will give rise to many issues, does not exclude the possibility of lawsuits from workers.
- Information to be simplified: by calculation should be done manually businesses often overlook the minor flaws, as the case worker 5.10 minutes late. These errors are combined in a month if it will grow, but more important, if ignored, small errors will easily become big mistake.
 
If you only buy as timekeeper buy office equipment, business machines can only be used in step (1), and thus invisible, the use of modern electronic timekeeping was not different the use of a mechanical timekeeper, but higher cost efficiency remain the same. If purchased with the timekeeper timekeeping software basically comes from overseas, the enterprise can meet the step (1) and (2) for a short time, but will have trouble when packaged software This is not compatible with the HR-Payroll future. The software package is usually great for the open defect. The change of packaged software from abroad for compatibility with modules in Vietnam is almost impossible (though businesses have to spend money). Meanwhile, businesses face two alternatives need to be addressed:
 
- Replace all hardware and software compatibility with attendance to the payroll;
- Do not use the payroll.
 
The replacement timekeeper and attendance software previously purchased a huge waste. This was inevitable, as companies look ahead to the needs of the payroll in step 3.
