Payroll software like PayWheel has enabled companies to automate processes like salary management, attendance management, pay-slip generation, employee management etc. However, many employers are still using manual timesheets to record the work hours and activities of employees.

Since timesheets are resources that depict critical data like the amount of time spent on a particular task, it becomes the key to measure and analyze performances. Manual timesheets often fail to serve their purpose due to ample of reasons. Let us list few-

  • Employees may not care to provide exact details of their work and manipulate the data
  • Reporting manager may approve the timesheet without verifying the accuracy of details submitted
  • Storing timesheets of all employees becomes tedious
  • Reviewing timesheets needs manual efforts of searching the records from a stack of paper
  • Evaluating overtime details, time-offs etc. requires double labor
  • HRs or payroll administrators have to manually input the exact work hours of all employees for payroll processing
  • Errors and negligence can creep in at any time resulting in incorrect wage/ tax/ compliance calculation
  • Cost of office stationery is added
