Time and Attendance Software (PunchTime) Overview

Our customizable timesheet software is designed to streamline the time reporting process, while providing the back-end calculations you need. Here are some ways our timesheet software can be deployed to your users:

  • In a desk-based environment, employees report their own time and labor distribution through a web-based browser interface. Supervisors approve time sheets at the end of each period.

  • In a blue-collar environment, time can be collected at a time clock. Supervisors review time sheets daily or every period.

  • For environments where employees don't have their own computers, you can set up a common PC where employees can review time and check their time off balances.
