Anyone who has worked in a management role likely hates timesheets. You’d think that employees would like to make it as easy as possible for you to pay them, but time entry inevitably turns into a herding cats situation. You probably know the drill: someone forgets a shift, a handful of timecards end up missing, you have to transcribe them, and you have to store them. Even if you’ve switched over to electronic timesheets, you are likely to find yourself sending out last-minute reminders asking (or begging) staff to help you help them.
With smart timesheets, Journyx wants to eliminate problems and give you all the information you need in one convenient place so it’s easily accessible for staff, payroll specialists, and anyone looking to effectively plan future projects. Let’s take a look at the ins and outs of our electronic smart timesheet system so that you can get a better grasp on all the benefits they can bring to your business.
What Is a Smart Timesheet?
Journyx’s electronic timesheet software integrates smoothly with all the business systems you’re already using, and using a smart timesheet is the perfect way to gather all your data in one place to make life easier for you and your employees. In the digital age, we’re all leaving a trail of breadcrumbs of our activities—the when and where of what we do during a workday—and, for the most part, those crumbs are getting picked up by surveillance capitalists who want to use your online history to make a buck.
Journyx wants those breadcrumbs to be something you can use as well. With our smart timesheets, employees will get autofill suggestions for what they’ve been working on and how long they’ve worked on it, whether those suggestions come from their Outlook calendar events or tasks, or other calendars and systems. Rather than keep a running tally of their day, all they have to do is approve the autofilled timesheets and fill in the gaps as needed!
Empower Your Workforce
By following the breadcrumbs, we’re able to let your employees do the tasks you hired them for. They don’t have to waste time filling out timesheets, and you don’t have to worry about reminding them to do it. As an added bonus—a significant one at that—you’re getting the most accurate data with this system, so that everyone is getting paid for the work they do and nothing slips through the cracks.
To be clear, this isn’t a system that spies on your employees and reports back to the boss. The ball is still in their court as far as what data they approve to build out their timesheet, but machine learning puts everything in front of them to shorten the task.
Evolve Your Business
The best thing about smart timesheets is that they’re a jumping off point for your business. Data is valuable currency, and by giving you more details on what your team is working on and for how long, Journyx helps you better deploy your workforce to get the most out of your team. Whatever projects you’re overseeing, the electronic timesheet app provides you with information that directly translates into expanded efficiency, leaving you with the capacity to take on more projects and expand your reputation.
Journyx software uses a complex set of algorithms designed to comprehensively fit your needs, but you would never guess at the complexities by using the app. We’ve made it our goal to deliver a product that is simple and seamless to incorporate into your business so that you can move on to the next part of your to-do list without missing a beat.
