Tracking employee attendance and processing payroll may be two of the most challenging and necessary parts of running a company. A business may be large or small, composed of hundreds or thousands of workers or just one person, but at the end of the day, everyone needs to get paid. Ensuring the on-time payment of vendors, clients, and employees is essential to running a business smoothly and maintaining your reputation.
One way a company can make sure everyone is getting paid on time is with time and attendance software. Investing in the right timesheet software is highly important for a business that needs to pay its employees for the correct amount of work. A business that is unable to pay its employees correctly creates a situation that is unstable and uncertain, and employees will surely not want to work in such an environment for very long.
ManicTime software can help with timesheets, tracking attendance, and getting your payroll correct the first time around. Tracking time on a computer can ensure that you are paying your employees for the work they are doing, that they are clocking in and out of work easily, and that no mistakes are being made when it is time for everyone to receive their paychecks.
Tracking the time and attendance of your employees can make or break your bottom line. You may already have a time card or digital sign in system in place, but those systems fail to account for the large time gaps that may exist between an employee walking through the door and signing into their computer. Such time gaps can be a major indicator for employee productivity and discipline. Therefore, it is essential for business owners and team managers to have the ability to track time with a timesheet software such as ManicTime.
ManicTime can be used to track exactly when someone logs onto their computer and what projects they are working on. This is beneficial for companies that work primarily on the computer and have projects that are digitally based. This software is also good for companies that work with freelancers or employees who work remotely. The time tracking software allows a manager to see that an employee has been working on the projects they have been assigned, so that they can then be paid for the time they spent on that project, and the client can be billed appropriately as well.
When it comes to time and attendance software, ManicTime can help ensure a simple payroll and timesheet process. Payroll errors are not only costly, but highly inconvenient for both the employees that need to be paid and the bookkeepers trying to fix the error. By using a timesheet software that automatically tracks computer usage, payroll records can be verified using the data from individual computers. These automatic reports can then be used to create a timesheet and then sent to the appropriate department. If there are any errors in payroll, ManicTime makes it easier to know where and when those errors were made so they can be remedied quickly.
ManicTime integrates easily with many other programs that you may be using on your computer, which also alleviates some difficulties you may have organizing payroll. ManicTime data can be gathered and viewed in Excel and other programs, making data easily shared with upper level management or others who may need that information. The computer monitoring software can also be used to assist you with organization, accounting, and tracking of employee work.
One of the benefits and unique features of ManicTime is that it offers automatic tracking. Opening up yet another application on your computer is not always second nature, and time tracking applications that offer only a stopwatch functionality can often be forgotten if they do not start up automatically. Manual tracking can also be difficult because users do not always remember to turn the tracker on and off when they are taking a break or doing non-work related projects on the computer. Utilizing ManicTime as your time and attendance software ensures that all data is as accurate as possible.
Automatic tracking allows the computer to be monitored as soon as it is turned on. Users can still choose to use the stopwatch feature if they would like, but it really isn’t necessary since ManicTime is entirely automatic and so easy to use. There is no need to remember to start and stop a timer. ManicTime makes it easy to toggle between projects you are working on so that you never have to miss a second on any task. This helps integrate all of your work projects together and create a seamless overview of the work you do day after day.
The data recorded by ManicTime is stored locally so that it remains private to your company. Data is never shared with any third-party. This means that any report you create composed of the data that has been gathered, remains internal, keeping the company much safer from a security breach.
Did you know that time theft is a major problem that many businesses face? Typical time and attendance software is not always comprehensive enough to solve this problem. Time theft can include anything from an employee not clocking out during their lunch break or having a co-worker punch in for someone else who may be running late. Even if these moments only comprise of a few minutes a day, over time and over the course of many employees, this can add up to a lot of money lost. Timesheet software can help ensure proper attendance and reduce the amount of money a company is losing as a result of time theft.
Although time theft is a common problem, businesses can do a lot to reduce how much time they are losing to improper employee practices. One common type of time theft is through buddy punching. This occurs when a friend or co-worker of an employee signs into work for them if they are late on the job or choose to not show up at all. This practice can be reduced by having the employees report to a supervisor every morning or, more simply, by having automatic time and attendance software downloaded on their work computers. When they sign on, the ManicTime application automatically starts, proving that the employee was at their desk working when they said they were.
Timesheet software can record when employees are punching in and what projects they are working on during a specific day, week, or month. This can be corroborated with their timesheets and compared during payroll processing. If the payroll records and a person’s time tracking records match, the software has done its job and has reduced the number of errors. If there are discrepancies between the payroll records and the timesheet software, it will be that much easier to know where the error occurred by going over the ManicTime records. To make it even more simple, ManicTime integrates easily with many other applications. You can easily create an accurate timesheet directly from the data recorded by ManicTime.
At the end of the day, the success of your business is your highest priority. You want to make sure that it is functioning correctly and that you are getting the expected effort out of your employees, whether they are part-time, full-time, or contract workers. Reducing these small errors with the best time and attendance software can make a very big difference to the overall bottom line.
ManicTime is a software application that tracks computer usage; therefore, in addition to being used as a timesheet software, the application can also be used for computer monitoring. The software can be downloaded to computers that are used for business or for personal use. The ManicTime software is unique because it is not internet-dependent. The software is downloaded to your computer, giving you the freedom to work when the internet may not be available. There is also a significantly decreased chance of your company’s private information being leaked to a third party. If sensitive information does get out, having a computer tracker may allow you to pinpoint that leak much faster than you would be able to using conventional methods.
ManicTime allows users to track their computer usage automatically or manually. Although it is not necessary, ManicTime does have a stopwatch feature for those that prefer it. ManicTime is much more than a simple time and attendance software application. It records when you start working, what websites you visit, and what you are working on. People that have ManicTime software installed on their computers can auto-tag certain applications for easy categorization. For example, you can auto-tag all Facebook activity to be labeled as “browsing.”
The computer software can also be used alongside other programs, allowing users to customize the data that is being gathered for the reports sent by ManicTime. ManicTime makes it easy not only to monitor computer use, but to use that data to make changes to project management and other aspects of the business. ManicTime can increase the productivity of your staff, improve focus at work, and simplify tasks in order of priority.
ManicTime was built to expand as your business does. As your company gets bigger, you and your employees will face different challenges. Some things, however, never change. You will always need to get your payroll out on time to make sure your employees are rewarded for all of their hard work. If you are on the fence about whether or not an automatic timesheet software is right for you or your business, there is a free version of ManicTime available with limited features to get you started. If your business is still expanding, ManicTime reduces the license fee with the number of licenses you purchase. The more licenses you have for your company, the more you save.

Let ManicTime keep track of this data for you to make sure you never miss another payday, and that you are getting the most out of your work day.

I do contract work and manage multiple projects where I bounce between projects on an almost by the minute basis. Once tagging is setup I can easily tag all my activities as I do them and my time accumulates in each project bucket. At the end of the day my timesheet is a breeze. This is the best tool I have found so far for a work style that involves heavy duty multi-tasking. I don't know what I would do without ManicTime. Well designed and thought out product. Cindy
Just renewed my licence for another year Just thought I'd let you know that this is one of the best pieces of software I've ever installed on my computer, free or paid for. I run my own business which principally relies on writing technical reports. ManicTime has made it so much easier to track my time over the various projects and therefore manage my fees and costs. (And your support has been excellent when I have had the odd problem). Paul
Just wanted to let you know that I think your software has helped me capture $1000's of dollars in revenue that I just wasn't billing before, as I wasn't doing a very good job of tracking my time. With ManicTime I get it all, and if I were ever to be audited by a client, I could give them every detail. Thanks so much! Linda
The interface is very intuitive and easy to use. The ability to tag and color-code my work allows me to see at a glance how my day has been going. I can organize and structure things as much or as little as I like. What a great product! Gary
