Time tracking automation

If you have employees working in an office, chances are that at a very basic level you want them to punch in when they come to work and punch out when they leave. 

Time cards are antiquated and prone to human error. And contemporary time tracking software allows you to automate this process in such a way that your employees do not need to do anything at all to track their timeScreenshotMonitor automatically starts time tracking when user touches a computer and stop when user walks away. (You have to check the options “Automatically start tracking” and “Lunch on Windows startup” for this to work)

ScreenshotMonitor has an additional advantage on tracking time for a specific project, adding notes for the current task, taking periodic screenshots at random intervals – all of this can be safely ignored or turned off and the program would function as an automatic time tracker with absolutely no input from employees.

The time for all employees is collected on the website, so a company manager can have a complete picture and reports of all the work through a control panel (using just a browser).

The downside may be that it is applicable for employees who primarily work on a computer, but it is the case for the majority of current office jobs.
