Time is money and your business clients are focused on saving both. One way that CPAs have a unique opportunity to assess how clients are doing on these two fronts is by taking a look at their time and attendance reporting.

Many businesses have automated work processes throughout their companies, but they often lag behind when it comes to electronic tracking of employee time. As a result, inefficiencies and inaccuracies flourish, some employees might take advantage of loopholes, and true labor costs are never really pinpointed.

Tracking time and attendance can take its toll on management as well. Supervisory efforts required to manually calculate and audit time sheet data is time taken from more strategic commitments. The labor-intensive process of manual calculations steals more than valuable time from your client's — they lose money too. However, studies have shown that the initial investment of an automated time solution will more than pay for itself in labor costs saved in a short time.
