Time and Attendance

Equator’s Time and Attendance solution allows the electronic capture of Time and Attendance details for any number of employees, via industrial and low-cost time clocks or PC based time clock emulator software, using bar-code, magnetic proximity, biometric fingerprint or touch screen technology. The system also allows data to be captured from standard PDA’s using bluetooth wireless.


  • The flexibility of Time & Attendance means you can typically adapt the system to your rules, rather than changing your company policies to fit the system. The information is gathered real time or at pre-set intervals giving an accurate attendance picture – who is in, out, on holiday, absent or off-site

  • The information may also be used to calculate a comprehensive build to gross for your payroll and reconciliation with activity on the shop floor. Accurate departmental, or activity costing, and reconciliation with shop floor jobs are also provided

  • Flexibility within the software allows for any number or type of work patterns, including standard, rotational, flexi, continental and night shifts.

  • Resource management is made easier by way of weekly, monthly and yearly graphic calendar which can show lateness trends. This can be viewed by company, shift, department, job title, cost centre or individual employee and shows planned shift working, holidays and absences.
