VISUAL: Time and Attendance

  • Supervisory electronic time approvals
  • Complete attendance, timesheet and labor tracking
  • Extensive audit trails and employee histories
  • Paperless manufacturing labor data collection

Managing employee time and labor presents a number of unique, and often costly challenges. Lengthy manual procedures, human error, and the non-uniform application of policies and procedures all add up to lost time, employee dissatisfaction, and reduced productivity. Infor ERP VISUAL Time & Attendance is the answer. This highly functional and affordable system fully automates your time and attendance data tracking needs, helping you eliminate wasted time and effort, and saving you money. Accurate time entries can save your company an average of ten wasted minutes each day—per employee. Infor ERP VISUAL Time & Attendance helps eliminate the inevitable human error involved in processing time cards, which can cost your company up to eight percent of your total payroll. With seamless data exchange between Infor ERP VISUAL Payroll or other third-party payroll processors, Infor ERP VISUAL Time & Attendance offers a significant ROI, often paying for itself within the first three to six months after implementation.

Flexibility and Functionality

Available in limited license and full-scale versions, Infor ERP VISUAL Time & Attendance helps you easily track employee attendance, manual time sheets, and manufacturing labor. The customizable nature of Infor ERP VISUAL Time & Attendance allows you to configure each data collection station to accept any or all types of tracked data, vacation request, and time card and schedule inquiry. User-definable compensation rules provide you with flexibility when defining work cycles and pay calendars, premium rules, and shift differentials. In addition to supporting both piecework and incentive pay, Infor ERP VISUAL Time & Attendance applies the compensation rules when calculating earnings and exports the data to your payroll processor, ensuring legal compliance and consistent application of company policies, which significantly reduces potential liability. This comprehensive package also lets you track specific employee information such as hourly workers, pieceworkers, incentive pay, and both exempt and non-exempt salaried employees. You may opt for the system’s online time sheet log to track your salaried employees’ time versus the standard clocking functionality.
