Time Management and Interpretation
Many firms conduct operations spanning across various countries. Such organizations need a clear picture of the time spent on different tasks. As a result, time management becomes complicated, and so does its interpretation. Further, a business needs to be able to make provisions for flexible overtime rules, shift work, overnight shifts, flexible work weeks, etc.
Bullhorn allows for efficient handling and administration of such nuances. A centralized management console enables you to administer all time-related tasks and manage them with confidence. Moreover, employees have a plethora of ways to log time details from various devices. Undoubtedly, time is one of the most precious assets in any organization, and this solution lets you manage it with ease.
Tracking employee time and attendance is very crucial to any business. It gives you an idea of the overall productivity of your firm. Traditionally, businesses used punched cards, which then transitioned to clumsy spreadsheets. Quite obviously, manually handling such large volumes of data is an error-prone affair. This is where solutions like Time and Expense come into the picture.
The software can manage employees’ attendance. It lets you monitor productivity over time and reward the consistent ones. You can also make use of the data to devise strategies to improve overall productivity. You can encourage excellent performance in your organization by leveraging the software’s attendance management features.
Expense Entry And Approval
Time and Expense dramatically simplifies the process of entering expenses. Employees have the flexibility to enter their expenses at any time and place. Additionally, they are not bound by restrictions on the methods to upload. They can use a variety of entry methods such as email, fax, direct upload, or using a form, if an employee works for more than one client, to make it a hassle-free process.
From an administration point-of-view, approving expenses is almost as easy as entering them. The reports lay out all the relevant numbers in a neat manner along with information such as project, client, business reasons, and expense codes. You can then sort them based on a particular criterion and quickly process the expenses.
Expense management is usually a two-sided affair. On one end, the employees will upload their expenses in the form of bills, an entry in a form, etc. The second facet is the administration side of things. Here, you’ll have to analyze the available data and filter critical business information.
With Bullhorn’s offering, you have all the data you need right at your fingertips. It also does you the service of showing you only what is essential, which can help you save time that you would have otherwise spent in sifting through the data. You can also extract relevant information by sorting the reports using your preferred criteria, which lets you make quick decisions and keep all stakeholders in the loop.
The folks over at Bullhorn understand that you need to be on top of your workforce’s schedules. They devised a novel concept that makes scheduling way more accessible to your employees. Time cards and long lines are now a thing of the past, as your employees can punch in from their devices. The software handles the tedious back-end work of comparing the total work hours with the designated work hours.
You can also manage overtime schedules manually. This ties in perfectly with the time management feature that I discussed earlier. You can view the timesheets on a per-employee basis and adequately reward the hard work of your employees. Simply put, the scheduling features of this software reduce your overhead and maximize available time. You can busy yourself in delivering results instead of reviewing time cards.
The visibility of your workforce is vital for administration. It keeps you on top of business-critical workflows and lets you manage everything in the process. The ideal way to do it through centralized monitoring of all workforce-related data. Bullhorn’s solution is almost as close to ideality as you can get.
You can capture time and expenses using many different tools, but the console is the focal point of it all. Every piece of relevant data ends up here so that users have visibility on every stage of the process. As an added advantage, you can set access levels for different users to control what they can see. This allows you to customize the software to suit your organization.
Bullhorn utilizes the proliferation of smartphones in today’s world to revolutionize the way we clock-in to work. Employees can log in through their mobile devices and punch in. The time management system maintains a log of the time to generate an accurate report of the hours worked.
This feature makes it fast and easy to clock in without having to invest in a clock. Moreover, the platform makes use of Geo-Fencing technology to ensure that employees are where they are and at the right time. It also uses credentials and other authentication features to restrict attendance by proxy. All of this lets you determine pay, bills, and attendance right straight from the software.
Vendor Management System (VMS)
Bullhorn offers VMS services more like an integration solution rather than as a feature in and of itself. It is one of the only closed-loop VMS integration solutions available to staffing firms and can serve firms of all sizes and requirements. In essence, this integration allows companies to automate their VMS workflows.
Jobs can be loaded directly to Bullhorn ATS. Once the right recruiters are notified, they can get to work. More importantly, candidate data is sent back to the VMS, and every field is filled in the background. It gives you full visibility into job flow and hiring activity. This automation lets you deliver results promptly and, in-turn improves your relationship with your clients.
