Looking for a sign you should ditch paper timesheets?

Here are ten signs that suggest it's time to move away from paper timesheets and adopt a digital time and attendance solution. Even if you only have one or two of these issues, it would be worth your while to investigate alternatives to paper time sheets:

  1. Frequent Errors: You often encounter errors like incorrect calculations, missing entries, or illegible handwriting on paper timesheets, leading to payroll discrepancies and frustration.
  2. Data Entry Delays: The manual process of entering data from paper timesheets into payroll or accounting systems takes a significant amount of time and resources.
  3. Difficulties in Tracking Overtime: It's challenging to accurately track and manage overtime hours using paper timesheets, leading to potential compliance issues or extra costs.
  4. Lack of Real-Time Visibility: You lack real-time insights into employee attendance, making it difficult to monitor attendance patterns and address issues promptly.
  5. Employment Law Compliance Concerns: Difficulty in maintaining accurate records for labour law compliance audits or facing challenges in proving adherence to regulations.
  6. Approval Bottlenecks: Paper-based approvals for timesheets are slow and prone to delays due to the physical movement of documents and signatures.
  7. Inefficient Reporting: Generating reports on attendance trends, hours worked, or leave balances is time-consuming and doesn't provide the depth of insights you need.
  8. Geographical Challenges: If you have multiple locations or remote workers, collecting and managing paper timesheets becomes even more cumbersome.
  9. Lack of Integration: Inability to integrate time and attendance data with other HR or payroll systems, leading to disjointed processes and data duplication.
  10. Employee Discontent: Employees might find manual timesheet filling tiresome and outdated, leading to decreased morale and potential dissatisfaction.

These are some of the signs which demonstrate that paper timesheets are causing inefficiencies, inaccuracies, and potential compliance issues, making a transition to a digital time and attendance solution a logical step forward for your organization.
