IPSSCH - Scheduling

The TimeIPS IPSSCH - Scheduling Module™ is an expansion module for the TimeIPS system that offers the flexibility of automatic clock controls for less deviation from scheduled work hours. With features such as Time Rounding, Time Snapping and Automatic Lunch Deductions, employers can use the TimeIPS IPSSCH Scheduling Module to prevent early clockins, eliminate the hassles of clocking in/out for lunches and accommodate time worked away from the clocking site. The Group Clocking feature offers the capability for managers and administrators to clock an entire group of employees in or out, drastically simplifying the manual time adjustment for groups of employees that may be working offsite, etc. Additionally, this module allows employers to import/export schedules and send automatic emails to employees within the employee management tab. Global settings make scheduling your workforce even easier by applying the same set of rules to all schedules. With features like setting automatic clocking times for employees on set schedules, optional automatic clocking of employees into different jobs at specified times, the ability to set minimum breaks, and the functionality of using job clocking to provide for pay differential, the Automatic Clocking feature makes the TimeIPS system a powerful tool for managing your work force.
