Paper-based time and attendance registration
Paper-based time and attendance recording is extremely time-consuming and difficult to control. Besides that, data can’t be stored properly or easily shared. A lot of time often passes before they can be checked and is not easily recorded. A sustainable solution is real-time attendance registration. With software, digital clocking-in and noting down happens automatically. This means that the data can be viewed and compared at any time at any place. When an employee is late or leaves early you’re notified immediately. That way you can respond as fast as possible to prevent a no show. This saves lots of time and provides loads of new insights

Scheduling work- and calendars is difficult when done manually. Even when you use a system, it remains difficult to link activities directly to employees. There are lots of planning and scheduling software applications. The best and most recent applications support live planning and drag- and drop systems. When new work orders are scheduled employees are notified through push- or in-app notifications. This way the planner has an overview of work orders that need to be scheduled.
Transform to digital work-orders
As soon as a cleaner has completed a job or task, a signed work order and time sheet must be issued. When completed paperwork orders require a lot of manual work before an invoice can be sent. When paper work orders are replaced by work order software this process will run automatically and the process time disappears. Respond faster to customer requests, simplify your work process, invoice extra work more easily and save time and costs. This process is completely taken over by the software, making the process much less risky than manually processing.
