Track Attendance like a Pro

Regardless of the company’s size or industry, managing employees’ time and attendance is a crucial part of everyday operations. Optimising productivity, ensuring compliance and payroll accuracy are some of the key benefits of accurate time tracking. Zelt introduces a simple yet powerful, fully integrated experience for attendance and work shift management.

Customised schedules

Zelt provides a user-friendly interface for creating and managing work shifts tailored to your team’s requirements. Now you can create unlimited work schedules to track attendance across your teams. Create a schedule for full-timers who can track their regular work hours as well as breaks, overtime and even custom work hours like Weekend work. Part-time or shift-workers can log hours through the calendar or via clock-in widget on the dashboard.

Custom schedules for time tracking

Overtime tracking

Recording additional hours worked by employees beyond their regular schedule is important as it ensures proper compensation and adherence to labor laws. Depending on where your workers are based, paying overtime rate in addition to the regular wage can be a legal requirement. In addition to accurate pay, overtime tracking can provide a valuable insight and manage excessive overtime, allowing employers to address workload imbalances and promote a healthy work-life balance for their employees. This, in turn, contributes to higher employee satisfaction, engagement, and overall well-being. With Zelt custom attendance schedules employees can accurately record overtime, if enabled.

Overtime tracking

Clock-in system

Clocking-in is used to record the time when employees start and end their work shifts. It typically involves employees registering their presence in real-time. Clock-in systems are usually implemented where there are shift workers and time efficiency is a key priority. Often, such employees get paid by the hour – therefore tracking start, end and the break accurately is of ultimate importance. Zelt provides a simple attendance app that will help you set the schedule for clock-in workers and let them simply and accurately track their work hours directly from the dashboard on the computer, phone or tablet.

Geofencing is a location-based technology that can help employers set the boundaries of the office or work site to only accept the start and end of the shift if employee is within the accepted distance from work. Zelt’s optional geofencing for clock-in offers multiple benefits. From accurate time tracking, limiting human error when submitting a shift report to ensuring accountability. Zelt’s geofencing will not drain your battery, like some other services, as we only verify the location at the time of change (starting/going on a break/finishing). Respecting your employee’s privacy – Zelt will not store location history or try to track the location when employees are not clocking-in.

Custom approvals

Like in other places in Zelt, custom approval logic is essential to empower your teams and leaders. Set custom approval rules for each schedule so only managers or only selected administrators or users are responsible for approving any of the timesheets.
