Crushing the cost of timecard processing
After two weeks of beta testing, our new Shop Timecard module has been a resounding success.
Two weeks ago we rolled out the Shop Timecard Module with beta clients who on average have about 30 shop employees. Before we arrived on site the shops placed laptops with big screen monitors attached at main production areas in the shop. All shop employees had been pre-entered as users within the module so they were all ready to go once the timecard module went live.
Webducts fast and easy-to-use interface made the transition simple for all shop workers with only minor grumbling from a few workers who were more resistant to change than anything else. In the first day it became obvious the client needed a WIFI booster to speed up laptops furthest away from the WIFI. With the speed solved all workers were entering their time with little to no training.
The module handles all time collection and work allocation making time entry for the fabricators simple and fast. Setup of the shop labor codes allows managers to allocate time in any fashion they want while also providing integration with accounting to ensure a seamless data transfer.
Before the Webduct Shop Timecard the shop manager would go through 30 paper timecards daily and check every entry, and double check the math. Within a week of the launch that process has been completely eliminated, saving 1.5 hours of time a day. Add to that the savings of the payroll clerk who also was going through the stack, checking everything, and then manually re-entering the data into their accounting system. With the Webduct Shop Timecards accounting export engine, all of the day/weeks fabrication data is seamlessly uploaded. All told, the productivity savings have been upwards of $3,000 per month.
The shop timecard module has proven to be a huge success in terms of productivity enhancements and return on investment for our Beta users. We fully expect the same or better results for any Webduct client who chooses to add the new module to their deployment.
