Accurate, Reliable Time-Tracking for Accurate Labour Cost Control

Labour is a big part of the cost and productivity of any manufacturing or distribution operation. But salaries and benefits only tell you part of the story. The more visibility you have into how your workforce uses its time, the easier it is to identify opportunities to lower costs and improve output.

While discrete manufacturing, process manufacturing and distribution operations
can all take advantage of tailor-made time and attendance solutions, each one does
so unique ways.

Discrete Manufacturing

The closer you track your workforce time and attendance, the more accurate your billing. So Imagine what you can do if your time and attendance solution keeps your workforce more informed about their tasks, helps you track labour costs and complete quantities for production and billing milestones, highlight employee efficiency and seamlessly integrates with your existing MRP, Job Cost and Payroll systems.

Process Manufacturing

Automated processes can hide ways to improve the bottom line. But, in addition to tracking overall hours worked, when you track and analyze them against specific work orders and tasks, you can spot areas for improvement, including accurate labour allocation that could lead to more efficiencies and lower labour costs.


Client demands for more customized distribution solutions can seem like disruption. But they are opportunities. Opportunities that you can seize when you know your labour costs by task, and job order, that can lead to more informed decision making, and provide a more customized distribution solution.
