Sierra Workforce Solutions also offers an innovative time and attendance solution called the Job/Labor Cost & Validation Module which enables you to accurately track and attribute time and labor management costs by department, job, operation, employee, and more. Five levels of totals may be defined with this time clock software, each with its own user defined name. These additional levels allow for a more in-depth breakdown of cost information.
This time clock software tells you exactly how much time was spent in all areas of your time and labor management operation. Recorded hours can be broken down by, employee, shift, department, job, step, operation, and task and sorted in any order you request. Hours can be further broken down by regular time and up to three levels of overtime to better track your employees electronic time sheets.
In addition to tracking and reporting electronic time sheet hours spent in multiple areas, wage or labor rates may also be applied with this time clock software to allow accurate recording of labor costs incurred. Actual employee wages or preset rates (including overhead) can be used with this time clock solution.
You will be able to keep track of quantities produced, accepted and rejected, and the labor associated with producing them with this expansion module. With accuracy and ease, employee time tracking quantities produced, accepted and rejected can be entered as they are performing the work. The quantity report produced by this expansion module will show how much time, by department, employee, job, step, etc. was expended to produce a particular quantity.
This expansion module allows the ability to take the quantities tracked and use it in conjunction with piece rate enabling you to multiply a particular quantity by its assigned rate to help execute a time and labor strategy. A gross piece rate can then be reported by department, employee, job, step, etc.
Budgeting & Forecasting:
You will immediately see if you are on schedule for the completion of any project with this expansion module. Forecasting takes into consideration the hours worked and dollars spent to date, along with the scheduled hours still to work, to come up with forecasted totals for any department, job, step, operation and task in the system. Forecasting can tell you if you will be over or under budget prior to the completion of a job. This time and attendance solution allows you to adjust schedules to meet future requirements and avoid overpaying employees. You can enter budgetary numbers for both hours and dollars to increase time and labor management. These budgetary factors can be applied to each function within your business. This module will allow you to print budgetary reports such as an Actual vs. Scheduled vs. Budgeted report to give insight on the comparisons of your time and labor management. With TimeMaster you can gain better control over your business by knowing, at any time, where your labor hours and dollars are being spent and if those hours/dollars are running under budget.
This expansion module gives you the ability to eliminate employee time tracking errors, increase job costing accuracy, and validate data entry through one of four formats: Visual only, Table validation, Visual and Table, Visual and Table with description. To better track your time and labor management you can download valid jobs, employees, levels, steps, and more to the time clock. These items can be verified by the time clock at the time of entry appropriately rejecting bad entries and accepting valid entries while optionally displaying the particular item’s name.
