What are the benefits of using the full Frontline Absence & Time solution?

Gain efficiencies and streamline processes. Our systems are integrated, which means an employee in our time tracking system is automatically updated in our absence solution. This ensures data is accurate and stays consistent, and eliminates the extra time spent on re-entering information from one system to the other. And because we integrate with most major payroll vendors, you can reduce payroll errors and save time inputting data. Finally, combined reporting in the system ensures that the appropriate funding codes are used for absences.

Maintain compliance. Tracking employee attendance in one place helps you stay compliant with state and federal labor laws, ACA, FLSA and collective bargaining agreements. Reports may be run to see when substitutes and part-time employees are approaching the threshold for benefit eligibility.

Have greater visibility. Our system provides total visibility into where your people are, when they’re working and in what capacity. You can see the whole picture of employee attendance with a single login.
