Tracking employee time and attendance is critical to ensure productivity, maintaining labor law compliance, and managing costs. However, manually managing time entry data is a cumbersome and error-prone process. Significant productivity losses and increased compliance risks are the results. Organizations can overcome these challenges by integrating Workday Time Tracking with a sophisticated time clock system like TimeCom®.  

TimeCom is our powerful time and attendance tracking solution. Organizations use it to manage their workforce effectively.

By seamlessly integrating with Workday Time Tracking, TimeCom provides a range of benefits.  

Here are the top five reasons why you should consider integrating an ATS (Accu-Time Systems) time clock with Workday Time Tracking.  

1. Accurate Time Tracking   

Time clocks that are integrated with workday time tracking offer an effective way to increase the accuracy of employee attendance records. Employees can easily clock in and out using the integrated system which will automatically collect their work hours and send it to the Workday Time Tracking System. Automating time collection ensures accuracy.  

The time clock system integration with workday time tracking allows for real-time monitoring of employee time. This information helps identify areas where employees may need training or support. It also helps managers make better decisions about staffing and scheduling.  

2. Cost Savings  

As an automated time and absence management system, TimeCom eliminates the need for manual data entry, reducing errors and increasing accuracy.

With near real-time data syncs, organizations ensure their time and attendance records are current. This eliminates the risk of Workday payroll or other teams working with bad data. 

Companies can choose to implement an ATS biometric time clock to eliminate buddy punching. Since the employee is their credential, they cannot clock in or out for anyone else, utilizing this type of technology saves companies thousands every year. 

3. Increased Productivity   

Automating the collection of employee work hours, various organizational departments spend less time on administrative tasks surrounding attendance data collection and management. 

Using a sophisticated time clock system with your Workday environment excels productivity in several ways: 

  • Employees use a time clock to record their working hours conveniently and accurately. 
  • The payroll team spends less time on reconciliation since the data is accurate. 
  • Employees and managers have longer lead time to approve time records before payroll runs. 
  • Managers and the Human Resource teams have improved reporting to spot and correct attendance issues. 

With improved efficiency, everyone has more time to focus on their core tasks and responsibilities. 

Using time clock data, Workday absence management reporting enables employers to detect patterns in employee attendance behavior. TimeCom data integrated with reporting shows patterns such as late arrivals, early departures, or extended breaks. Employers can address any issues affecting employee productivity and take corrective action. This ensures that employees are using their time effectively.  

Managers can easily adjust workloads, schedules, and staffing levels to optimize productivity when they have accurate attendance records.

4. Enhanced Labor Law Compliance   

Integrating Workday Time Tracking with a PeoplePoint™ Plus time clock system also enhances labor law compliance. For example, TimeCom prevents an employee from clocking in if not scheduled or clocking in too early.

This capability helps prevent wage and hour violations, such as unpaid overtime, and insufficient breaks during and between shifts. Such violations can result in significant penalties for employers.  


The TimeCom solution with Workday is a reliable way to keep precise track of employee attendance and working hours. It ensures compliance with labor laws, such as minimum wage and overtime laws. These records also help employers show compliance during an audit or lawsuit, providing a defensible position against any allegations of noncompliance.

Biometric Usage: Growing concerns over the privacy and security of biometrics are driving government regulations surrounding the definition of personal data and how to protect it. These regulations vary from country to country, state-to-state, and in some cases city by city. Most often the governing regulations are dictated based on the location where the information is being collected. It is important to understand the local regulations in the geographic areas in which you operate. If you are uncertain regarding your regulatory obligations, we encourage you to consult with your legal counsel.
