    ExpressTime Reports

    Every successful business must have accurate information to effectively manage their operations, employees, and financial wellbeing.

    ExpressTime Solutions offers a multitude of reports designed to focus on those three areas. Our clients have shared with us the importance reflected in several of those which include Statistics and Exceptions Quick/Edit

    They insist that employee cost is the biggest expense they encounter in their business. To operate successfully, they rely on ExpressTime Solutions’ Business Software. One of the primary tools used is the Statistics Report. This report is effective for managers who deal with the operational side of the business as well as owners who are focused on the financial success of the company.

    Statistics can be filtered by any specific building, area, division, or business type to show budget hours vs. actual hours and budgeted revenue vs actual employee pay including fixed cost. Having access to this information allows the managers and owner to make decisions quickly so changes can be made immediately. Realizing that your actual hours worked are exceeding your budgeted hours allows management/ownership to adjust those issues and protect profits for every assignment. As an owner, knowing your revenue vs. actual labor cost, allows you to follow every day to assure you are on track to be profitable. Benefits using statistics are at any given time:

  • Knowing your Revenue vs. Actual Labor Cost (including fixed cost) for each client and as a company
  • Knowing what percent, you are over or under budget (financially) for each client and as a company.
  • Knowing your Budgeted Time vs. Actual Time for each client and as a company.
  • Knowing what percent, you are over or under budget (scheduled hours) for each client and as a company.
  • You can drill down on any client to find where you may be over or under what you budgeted all in one place.
  • Another favorite report for our customers is the Exceptions Quick/Edit Report. This report allows you to view and amend critical data at one central point. Filtering can be done by any specific date range, employee, building, area, division, or any combo to provide the following information. The following represent some of the more important aspects which can be addressed here:
  • Partial Services-identifies that an employee has clocked in but failed to clock out
  • Short Time-identifies that an employee has clocked out too early from a scheduled
  • Excessive Time-identifies that an employee has clocked out too late from a schedule
  • No Shows-identifies an employee who has failed to keep a schedule
  • Overlapping Services-identifies an employee who has clocked into two or more buildings without clocking out of the first building
  • GPS Verification-identifies where an employee clocked in using the mobile app
  • And much more…

  • Having one central place to view all this data and make necessary changes to correct the issues saves a great deal of time and ensures that payroll runs smoothly. The report also provides management with accurate data so employees can be better trained.

    Social Media Screening

    Raise the Vibration and Create Good Energy For Your Company- Social media screening is becoming more and more popular in the candidate screening process these days. So what exactly is Social Media Screening? In a nutshell, it’s scraping data from social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin and others to gain insight into a potential employee’s code of conduct and demeanor.

    I think we have all been in a situation where we’ve navigated difficult situations in the workplace or personality conflicts. Sometimes it can make or break a career or a department for that matter. Crude inappropriate jokes, opinionated obnoxious outbursts and the list goes on…..The energy you create within your organization or your department is important to the overall success and health of the company. No one wants to deal with HR nightmares, toxic personalities or that employee that just spreads negativity like a cancer.

    I bet you’re wondering……..is this ethical, is it legal? It is legal and it is ethical as long as companies do not discriminate based on race, gender, religion, national origin, physical or mental disability, age or sexual orientation and gender identity.

    In social media platforms, people do have the right to control their own privacy settings, so what is available might be somewhat limited to how this candidate has their social media platforms set up.

    Simply put, look at it more as a personality assessment, rather than identifying any of the above discriminatory NO-NO’s.
