Team KeyPay is happy to announce another great addition to the KeyPay product – a Time and Attendance kiosk (or ‘soft clock’). This is a web based kiosk that can be used to clock on / clock off employees when they start/end their shifts.
The kiosk is designed to be both PC and tablet friendly; a standard Keyboard/mouse may be used if you prefer not to click the key pad buttons on the screen.
Kiosks can be created by clicking on the ‘Time and Attendance’ link under business settings.
Multiple Kiosks can be created with different names, locations and time zones.
Clicking on the ‘Employee Access’ tab In the Time and Attendance section will allow you to provision access for employees to the kiosk.
Simply select the employees to enable and click ‘Grant Access’.
Once access is enabled for an employee, they will receive an email with their Employee ID and PIN code.
Click on the ‘Launch’ button to launch a kiosk.
Please note that once the Kiosk is launched, you will be logged out of KeyPay. This ‘locks down’ the kiosk functionality, preventing employees from accessing the payroll administrator portal.
Once launched, can be saved to the ‘Home Screen’ on a tablet device. On an iPad, click the arrow up button in the button bar and then click ‘Add to Home Screen’
When employees log in for the first time, they’ll be required to change their PIN number. Once that is done, the employee is all set up. It’s a simple matter of logging in, logging out and taking breaks.
Once employees clock off their shift, a timesheet will be automatically created. These timesheets are then available to be approved and subsequently paid in the same way as timesheets that were manually entered.
Time and Attendance ties together with all of the KeyPay automation features – Rostering, Clock on/clock off, Timesheets, Award interpretation and finally payroll. This end-to-end payroll solution is a huge time and money saver.
The Time and Attendance functionality is available to users on the KeyPay Plus plan.
