POS Q Time and Attendance

The Time & Attendance feature gives managers the tools they need to analyze the efficiency of their work staff and create a streamlined productive labor force. Employees can clock in and clock out at any workstation, while being exact to the minute or rounded to the nearest configured interval, thus eliminating the need for time clocks.
T&A provides individual employee files that accurately log details for payroll calculation, labor scheduling and even tip declaration. Information gathered from POS terminals reporting all employee activity allows users to benefit from tighter control over labor management and reduced labor costs.

> Indispensable labor management tools
Maitre'D offers multiple ways to configure employees, which provides a great deal of flexibility and limitless possibilities when customizing an employee record.
The T&A module stores all employee information such as birth date, hiring date, emergency contact information, social security number, and more. The default employee language can be configured to reflect an employee's preferred language.
This feature also provides the ability to import Time & Attendance employees' profiles from a third party application to reduce data entry and errors.
Maitre’D allows to assign 10 different job codes for each employee with different rates. Job categories can have minimum and maximum wage amounts attached to them to prevent underpaying or overpaying an employee when assigning a particular pay rate. Furthermore, a raise can be entered with a pending date so that it automatically goes into effect at the desired time, thus eliminating the
possibility of forgetting to change the rate at the beginning of the pay period.

> Increased Security.
Employees can login using a password, a magnetic card or even biometric devices
for more security.

The T&A module includes a graphical schedule that employers and employees can both use to get a global view of who is scheduled to work during the week.
By using color coded bars to represent different tasks and by relating the colors to the various tasks at the bottom of the schedule, employers can determine right away whether they have sufficient staff for any given moment of the week. If it is not modified, the current weekly schedule will be automatically transferred to the following week.
