We all like to be recognized for our efforts. Of course, some like the recognition more than others. Some just enjoy doing their jobs well and remaining out of the spotlight and behind the scenes. But it's always nice to know you're appreciated and that the work you're doing is not going unnoticed. So you can imagine our surprise and delight when our Virtual TimeClock software was mentioned by name in the recent State of the City 2010 Address by Fresno Mayor Ashley Swearengin.
Mayor Swearengin was describing things that Fresno City Hall is doing, and going to do, to promote local businesses. She went on to describe several technology firms that are headquartered in Fresno, including Redcort Software. She acknowledged our contributions to the global economy because of our international presence. We now have employee time clock software users in over 50 countries! She mentioned our relevance to current technology trends because of our recent Macworld time clock software review. Finally, she captured our corporate culture perfectly when she described being able to sit down and have a cup of coffee with the founder of our company. He's even been known to pick up the phones after hours and help customers get their time clock software back up and running after a computer crash!
Like I said at the beginning, it's nice to be recognized for your efforts. But that's not why we do what we do. We strive to be the best time and attendance software company because of the internal satisfaction we receive from knowing we're doing things to the best of our abilities, even when we're not standing directly in the spotlight.

The 1990s were an important era for small businesses as more and more companies embraced the new Computer Age birthed by wide spread acceptance of the Internet and moved their business practices to a digital format. This age has often been characterized by the ability to freely transfer information, and to have instant access to information that would have been difficult to find or retrieve before. General ledgers, employee payroll, and banking were quickly moved from labor intensive paper bookkeeping to electronic storage and processing. Time and attendance practices followed the trend as computer time clock software started to replace mechanical punch clocks. Software based time and attendance systems greatly reduced the amount of time needed to prepare employee time cards for payroll processing by automatically totaling employee hours and overtime. Time card software also reduced the reliance on mechanical or electronic punch clocks that were subject to failure and expensive to replace or repair. This shift has allowed business owners to reap the benefits of reduced operating costs because computer time clock software is inexpensive, east to maintain, increases employee accountability, is efficient, and makes payroll processing easy.

When the first employee punch clock was invented in 1888, its only purpose was to record the time employees entered and left the factory. The date and time information stamped on the original timecard gave the factory owner an official record of the time worked by each employee. Today, punch clocks are expensive to buy, difficult to maintain, reduce employee accountability, are inefficient, and make payroll processing difficult. In our current technologically advanced business environment, computer time clock software is the best choice for punch clock replacement.

A traditional timesheet allows employees to record when they start and end specific tasks. For some employees, this just amounts to starting work in the morning and punching out at the end of the day. For others, this may involve keeping detailed start and end times for various activities, projects, or jobs throughout the day. Whatever your business needs, time and attendance software allows your employees to record this information much more easily, accurately, and objectively. Employee computer time clock software can help lower the operating costs of your business by making payroll processing more efficient, ensuring attendance compliance, making labor costs more visible so you can lower them if necessary, and helping automate the billing or invoicing of your clients.
