Like most companies, your organization is working hard to tackle the changes required by COVID-19. These transitions can be rough. Business operations often get compromised with a new workflow, which sparks a cycle of constant modifications. The goal is to regain a balance between the new reality and normal business operations, but it can be a choppy transition.
Fortunately, not all COVID-related workflows need to disrupt operations. ATS's Swipe and Go workflow easily transitions your TimeCom devices to a no touch time clock that hits that balance from the outset. The contactless time clock lets you avoid any business disruption as it provides workers with a safe experience.
Keep the Swipe and Go is Functionality Your Workers Love to Use
Introducing new ways to punch in and out can cause challenges when workers need retraining. Your employees won't require any further training to use the Swipe and Go touchless time clock, when your company moves from Kronos to Workday or Oracle.
Transitioning to a no touch time clock is simple since you won't have to train workers how to clock in and out with a contactless swipe card. Even better, you won't have to convince them it's the better way to go. They already feel that way.
No Compromising Functionality with a No Touch Time Clock
Swipe and Go workflows aren't limited to a simple clock in and out workflow. Your employees can still complete self-service tasks available through your attendance solution at the ATS time clocks, such as checking their upcoming schedule or specifying the job role when they punch in. These higher functions aren't contactless the way that clocking in and out is. Workers will still use the easy touch screen for these services.
I know what you must be thinking – if employees have to touch the clock, it is no longer a swipe and go. You're right, but the employee self-service functions only occur a fraction of the time. The majority of time clock interactions are employees punching in or out. Swipe and Go will help expedite your workforce's movement, further reducing the chances they'll catch a virus.
The contactless workflow blends the best of both worlds; it offers a touchless experience, yet retains the cost-saving benefits of employee self-service.
Contactless Workflows Can Improve Business Flow
The purpose of having a no touch time clock is to minimize the risk of transmission. It achieves this in two ways. First, of course, is the fact that people don't need to touch the clock to clock in and out.
The second way a contactless workflow reduces transmission risk is by avoiding crowds around the time clock. The Swipe and Go process keeps the line moving.
The great unintended consequence is that contactless swiping also speeds up shift changes. Instead of the time clock acting as a bottleneck, Swipe and Go facilitates a smooth changeover.
The No Touch Time Clock is All Upside
Safety is always the priority. COVID-19 has forever changed the scope of safety protocols companies need. That doesn't mean that every new safety precaution needs to interfere with business. Your company's productivity goals, and employee expectations still need to be met.
Having a tool like the no touch time clock with a simple workflow enhances safety without upsetting operations is an all-around win.
