The idea behind eTimeMachine timesheets is to simplify the task of recording time spent on activities and make it less challenging by bringing together in one screen all activities assigned to an employee, regardless of the type and origin, be it an overhead task, activity from a crew assignment, project activities, tickets, ad-hoc tasks, etc.
Employee's timesheet can be configured to minimize or altogether eliminate repetitive time entry using the "by exception" approach. With this approach, the time is pre-populated and can be submitted automatically, unless the exception is raised based on the specified business rules, e.g. max or min hours rule.
The system features automatic notifications, which can be a flag or a pop-up message or an e-mail.
Attendance reporting and Vacation requests are also handled from the same interface.
Electronic timesheets provide employees and crews with a consolidated view of activities (work assignments) originating from within eTimeMachine or other Project and Work Management Systems. Employees fill up their timesheets by recording their time, progress and expenses, and submit them periodically for approval. Managers (Resource Managers, Project Managers) can approve and reject timesheets entirely or partially. Upon approval of timesheets, the originating systems are updated with actual time and progress. This information also updates other systems, such as accounting, Payroll and HR.
eTimeMachine provides tools for tracking employees’ attendance manually and automatically. Attendance and Time Away From Work time is recorded but not counted toward project effort. Time-in and time-out can be entered through the system directly, or can be automatically recorded based on pre-defined settings, or can be fed into eTimeMachine from a swipe card system.
eTimeMachine offers a comprehensive and on the same token elaborate and highly scalable Timesheet solution. Under eTimeMachine all employees have their workspace where they receive their work assignments in real time from throughout the company.
eTimeMachine provides a tool for employees to report time, expense and progress against all corporate activities in ONE environment. It conveniently allows employees to report actual hours, overtime, billable, non-billable, lieu time, expenses, percent complete, remaining hours, issues against assigned activities.
