Boost sales and lower costs with strategic scheduling and smart timekeeping

Did you know that:

  • 10% of retail stores open late every day
  • Average time to resolve late store openings is 30 minutes
  • 15-20% of employees clock in early
  • 5-10% of employees auto-clock out
  • 5-10% of employees have inaccurate punches

All of this adds up to reduced ROI through lost revenue, inaccurate labor trends, a subpar customer experience, and managers having to waste hours on timekeeping.
