MinuteHound offers cloud-based timekeeping systems for companies which are embracing SaaS (Software as a Service) ERP and CRM solutions as well. With MinuteHound doing the timekeeping, companies can implement an end-to-end cloud-based IT solution.
The benefits of moving ERP and CRM systems into the cloud have tempted many companies, large and small, to embrace SaaS solutions for cost advantages, flexibility, and reliability. Many time clock reviews rave that MinuteHound greatly assists management on many levels. The same benefits are available with MinuteHound's time and attendance solution which replaces paper time cards or even electronic time clocks with a simple, highly accurate fingerprint scanning system.
Instead of labor spent gathering, correcting and entering employee time data, companies can install one or more $99 fingerprint scan devices, connect to the MinuteHound cloud, and use the downloadable data files to feed the payroll system in only minutes per payroll cycle. Savings from payroll efficiency and accuracy can be up to eight percent. Like other cloud applications, MinuteHound can easily scale for company expansion, acquisitions, or facility relocation.
MinuteHound's cloud implementation is top quality. They have multiple servers and data storage facilities, IT maintenance and upgrades, and 128-bit encryption for user data connections. Fingerprint scans are encoded with one-way encryption so actual fingerprints are never stored, just a single number that uniquely identifies each worker. Time data is obtained from highly accurate Internet sources.
Part of the cloud-based approach to computing is controlling costs. MinuteHound's service costs only pennies per day per employee, more than offset in most companies by the cost savings to the payroll department which receives highly accurate data requiring little or no processing and verification.
Additional features which can make a big difference to the company's bottom line include monitoring tools which allow accurate, real-time reviewing of data through a Web-based interface which offers up-to-date views of employee time clock data. An email and SMS alerts system watches for any significant changes programmed by management including early or late arrivals and departures and other changes in company operations which can affect productivity, trigger HR issues, or otherwise require management attention. The drill-down reports interface can be used to investigate further without requiring constant review by supervisors.
MinuteHound is a natural component of a company's cloud-based infrastructure. CIOs can be confident that they are building a 21st century IT department without "black sheep" legacy technologies such as antique or manual time clocks lagging behind.
MinuteHound cloud-based time and attendance technologies are a natural fit for companies moving their corporate systems to the cloud. Instead of manually reviewing and moving time card data to company accounting systems, MinuteHound provides highly accurate, ready-to-download data files for integration with ERP payroll solutions and corporate operations analysis tools.
