Workflow & Labor Costing
We know that your company’s time and money means a lot to you! Workflow and labor costs are key elements in your company’s overall performance and profitability. Wouldn’t you want to gain insight into how you can track certain labor costs towards your company’s advantage? Here at Sierra Workforce Solutions we have an innovative Job/Labor Cost & Validation Module that enables you to accurately track and attribute time and labor costs by department, job, operation, employee and more. Five levels of job costing can be defined – with the ability to name the levels based on your company’s terminology. These additional levels allow for a more in-depth breakdown of cost information allowing you to gain awareness of where your labor costs and hours are being spent.
Know exactly how much time was spent in all areas of your operation. Recorded hours can be broken down by, employee, shift, department, job, step, operation, task and sorted in any order you request. Hours can further be broken down by regular time and multiple levels of overtime.
In addition to tracking and reporting hours spent within these areas, wage or labor rates may also be applied to allow accurate recording of labor costs incurred. Actual employee wages, or preset rates (including overhead), can be used.
Keep track of quantities produced, accepted and rejected, and the labor associated with producing them. With accuracy and ease, employees can enter quantities produced, accepted and rejected as they are performing the work. The quantity report will show how much time, by department, employee, job, step, etc. was expended to produce a particular quantity.
Used in conjunction with quantities, piece rate enables you to multiply a particular quantity by its assigned rate. A gross piece rate can then be reported by department, employee, job, step, etc.
Budgeting & Forecasting:
Immediately see if you are on schedule for the completion of any project. Forecasting takes into consideration the hours worked and dollars spent to date, along with the scheduled hours still to work, to come up with forecasted totals for any department, job, step, operation and task in the system. Forecasting can tell you if you will be over or under budget prior to the completion of a job. This allows you to adjust schedules to meet future requirements and avoid overpaying employees. You can enter budgetary numbers for both hours and dollars. These budgetary factors can be applied to each function within your business. Budgetary reports such as an Actual vs. Scheduled vs. Budgeted, report on the comparisons. With TimeMaster you can gain better control over your business by knowing, at any time, where your labor hours and dollars are being spent and if those hours/dollars are running under budget.
Eliminate key stroke errors, increase job costing accuracy, and validate data entry through one of four formats: Visual only, Table validation, Visual and Table, Visual and Table with description. Download valid jobs, employees, levels, steps, and more to the time clock. These items can be verified by the time clock at the time of entry appropriately rejecting bad entries and accepting valid entries while optionally displaying the particular item’s name.
Gain the peace of mind of having your business secured at all times. This includes knowing who accessed your facility, what time they came in and how long they stayed. Here at Sierra Workforce Solutions, we have the Access Control & Profile Lockout Module, which allows you to define intervals of time in which employees can enter a punch at the terminal. You can lockout or warn employees who attempt to punch IN or OUT at times other than their scheduled shifts. This module provides control of punching by time of day and day of week. Supervisors can be allowed to override these lockouts if desired.
This security module also allows you to:
Lockout unauthorized personnel
Restrict employee access to certain locations
Define the exact time interval when employees can enter a punch
Lock out or warn employees who try to clock in or out when they are not scheduled
Control access to secure areas
