We have a small office and keeping track of login and logout times of employees were quite hard. There are options like biometric fingerprint scanners that are commonly used to keep track of employees time and attendance. We wanted an online software that could do the same for us, since all employees have access to computers. Online time attendance software can help with payroll and leave calculations as well. Most of these software are paid and cost a lot depending on the number of employees in the organization.
