Switching from Manual to Automated Time & Attendance

No matter how large or small your business is, or what your business needs are, automated time and attendance systems are worthwhile. By automating your workforce management, you can simplify workflow, prevent timekeeping errors, and save your company money. 

Getting ready to move to an automated time and attendance system can be tricky, but with Acumen’s streamlined process it’s never been easier.

The Benefits of Automatic Workforce Management 

Even without complicated customizations or unique implementations, automatic time and attendance can improve your business in a number of ways. 

Data Collection

  • Our data collection options work for any kind of business, whether you’re using traditional standalone time clocks, web terminals, or smartphones & tablets, our automated time and attendance software is always accessible. It’s faster, easier, and less prone to errors than paper time-tracking. 

Regulatory Compliance

  • Following the rules with manual time and attendance can be difficult and expensive. Between Sarbanes-Oxley, FairPay Rules, and the Fair Labor Standards Act, among other state and local regulations, keeping track of everything might seem impossible. Acumen’s automated time and attendance takes the guess work out of everything, and keeps your business running smoothly while collecting and retaining the information you need. 

Ease of Use

  • While traditional time clocks can be clunky, expensive, and difficult to use, and were the only option for most business to keep track of employee hours, our state-of-the-art software makes it easy for your employees to track their hours accurately. Employees and supervisors can track employee hours in real time, and with the press of a button an employee can be clocked in, clocked out, or change position. 


  • Automated systems are more efficient and effective. Whenever your business is streamlining and saving time for supervisors, employees, and customers, your business is saving money and improving its return on investment. With automated time and attendance, you’ll also eliminate unintentional errors and costly time-theft, keeping your employees fairly compensated and protecting your business from expensive litigation.
