Construction Labor Management: Portable Time And Attendance Systems

Tracking labor costs is critical for any business, and a construction site is no different. Time and attendance systems typically need electricity.  A construction site needs a portable solution that is accurate and which can reduce labor cost by maintaining accurate information.  Something as insignificant as misreporting by 10 minutes each day will add up over time to a week of lost productivity per year.  Not to mention higher labor costs!

Automated time and attendance tracking can be implemented with a portable solution on the job site. These systems have greater accuracy and can save time by compiling the detailed information that is needed for accurate payroll.  Mistakes happen, and employees sometimes make mistakes when filing in timesheets. This is especially a symptom when tasked with trying to remember when they went to lunch a week ago, or how long they were on site.  Efficiencies in payroll processing and greater accuracy can be the result of using a portable time and attendance system. Inefficiency due to inability to deciphering handwriting and errors resulting from manually typing in data can be eliminated or reduced.  Concise, and accurate executive summaries of hours worked by work location, employee and cost code result in better information for decision making as well as better human resource management.

Most portable time and attendance systems can be uploaded to a real time server. The result is that the IT team can integrate the portables with the in-house team to create consistent reporting.  By having the information on a timely basis, cost controls can be implemented in real time.  F and E TimeSystems has portable solutions that translate to many industries in addition to construction, including:
