In today's fast-moving age, where technology is rapidly evolving, flexibility is a key factor in the success of any business. This is one of the reasons why more and more of them are switching to cloud-based IT solutions. The case is no different with attendance records. Besides convenience, increased security and efficiency, cloud infrastructure offers organizations new opportunities that are not possible using their own servers. Let's find out why you should consider moving to a modern cloud solution too.
Companies in today's digital age are constantly challenged with increasing demands for efficiency and flexibility. This is often demanded by both customers and employees. For this reason, they are more frequently switching to cloud-based solutions. In other words, technology that enables you to access data and deliver services via the internet, where your data isn't stored on a local computer but is accessible through remote servers.
Cloud technology can be particularly beneficial when it comes to managing attendance records. Discover why you should consider a modern attendance system in the earlier article 5 Reasons Why You Should Switch to a Modern Attendance System Today. Switching to a cloud-based attendance solution offers several advantages, including increased ease of use with anytime, anywhere accessibility, increased security, and the ability to integrate with other systems.
Simple Integration with Other Systems
With a cloud-based solution, connecting to other online systems becomes easy, increasing overall functionality and your comfort. In addition to integrating with your payroll system, you can also connect the cloud-based attendance system with online meal ordering platforms, for instance. This allows employees to order food from their phone via a mobile app or directly from the punch clock with just a few clicks. What’s more! Their orders automatically sync with their attendance records, ensuring that meal deductions are smoothly included in the exports to the payroll system.
You can also integrate the GIRITON attendance system with telephone exchanges, which would allow you to monitor operator activities and track the duration of their phone calls, for instance.
Accessing Attendance Data on the Go
You'll also appreciate the availability of data. 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 356 days a year. This means you can for example approve leave requests while travelling or check who is currently at work. You can also use this option if some of your employees work from home or are out of the office. You can monitor their current attendance in real-time. With the cloud, managers no longer need to manually send employee data to the payroll department via email; the automatic export handles it for them.
Another advantage of cloud-based attendance systems is that they often offer flexible payment options, allowing you to pay in smaller, recurring amounts. Additionally, these systems can typically be canceled at any time (in cases where an annual commitment is not required). Unlike older non-cloud systems, this eliminates the risk of discovering that the software isn't suitable for your needs after making a costly purchase. You won't be left with a financial burden if the attendance software doesn't meet your expectations. Giriton Attendance offers a 1-month notice period, and companies only pay for active users, increasing flexibility and minimizing risk.
There's No Cloud Like the Right Cloud
When selecting a cloud provider, it's crucial to consider their reputation. Reputable providers like Microsoft Azure are well-known for their high standards of security and operational stability. In contrast, some local companies managing their own server rooms may not offer the same level of security and reliability.
Professionals at your service
Switching to cloud-based attendance records reduces the burden of installation, updates, backups, security, and daily operations. You won't be reliant on your own employees to handle these responsibilities. Instead, all management tasks are placed squarely in the hands of the attendance system operator, supported by an experienced team. In cases requiring swift resolutions or during outages, the responsibility falls on the service provider. You won't need to wait for your in-house IT personnel, as you'll have access to seasoned professionals.
The conclusion is clear. Switching to cloud-based attendance records comes with a number of benefits. Systems like GIRITON, operating on the Microsoft Azure platform, provide a combination of security, reliability, and flexibility. Instead of being concerned about installation, updates, and maintenance, you gain the capability to effortlessly manage attendance from anywhere, at any time.
