Benefits of Tracking Time in the Cloud

Benefits of Tracking Time in the Cloud

The days of a punch clock, an overstuffed shoebox of receipts and inputting timesheets from one centralized computer are a thing of the past … well, almost. There are still a number of small businesses using paper-based timesheets, but the only question that comes to mind is, why?

It’s neither smart nor secure, and quite frankly, keeps you from growing and reaching your true potential. The solution? Tracking time in the cloud.

We’re already doing so much in the cloud, so why not also track time? Here are a few of the benefits:

Anywhere, anytime access. One of the absolute biggest benefits of tracking time in the cloud is anywhere, anytime access. As a small business owner, you and your clients are constantly on the go. Going paperless enables you to get your clients the information and data they need, anytime, anywhere. And, by having that data in the cloud, clients can access it at their fingertips whenever they desire. That means no more mandatory visits in one centralized location on just one computer!

A complete 180-degree transformation for you and your team. The old way of time tracking meant manually collecting paper time cards and recording them on spreadsheets. This led to mistakes that not only were time drains that kept you from running your business, but also cost you money.

With paperless time tracking in the cloud, these obstacles are obsolete. You can now communicate much more effectively across remote locations, enjoy automated data entry to better manage your team and make sure they’re performing their jobs, and even put the power in your employees’ hands by letting them decide their schedule.

That’s right – time tracking in the cloud allows them to set their own schedule. Of course, you still oversee the process, but giving them this benefit helps them feel empowered, takes one more thing off your plate and creates a win-win work environment.

Powerful payroll. Did you know that Sound Business Services can handle your payroll? Whether setting up accounts, getting employees on-boarded or running payroll on a regular basis, we’ve got you covered. And, we would be remiss if we didn’t mention how much cloud time tracking helps us in this endeavor.

In the past, payroll likely kept you from completing tasks and meeting deadlines. With Sound Business Services and the cloud, that’s no longer the case. Through the cloud’s powerful integration and our experience and knowledge, you will have a seamless, convenient and high functioning payroll system, with key data and insights to skyrocket your business and succeed. This gives you the peace of mind you deserve, as well as the time to grow your business.

Saving the environment and saving you money. In case these benefits weren’t enough to get you to make the switch, how about making the world a better place, while also spending less than before? That’s the reality with time tracking in the cloud.

Going paperless goes the extra mile to save our landfills. God gave us but one planet to live on – and we need to help each other thrive and survive for as long as possible. In addition, you’ll no longer have to spend money on paper, toner, storage and shredding. That means spending less and improving the world. What a relief and what a gift!
