Dakar Time & Attendance is the DakarHR module which, by the nature of attendance management, requires most versatility. It caters for unlimited scenarios and user-defined parameter sets, and we provide you with tailored solutions even for the most installation-specific shift definitions and arrangements.
The main menu is fully user-definable, its layout modifiable and customised fields, reports or commands can be added to the system. A set of predefined but customisable views and reports is deployed with the system, and new ones can be generated with any one of a number of report builders.
Dakar T & A interfaces with the full range of biometric and other recognition systems on the market – hand readers, finger-print systems, proximity sensors, swipe cards, iris scanners, face recognition, phone-punch, web-punch, PC-punch, legacy time clock, telephone voice response and wireless devices.

Raw clockings imported from any of these devices are converted into predefined punch occurrences according to the shift definition the employee has been assigned to. T&A’s Daily Clockings utility filters out errors and performs automatic corrections based upon assigned shift definitions, with inaccuracies flagged for manual adjustment where the definition is not sufficiently clearcut for automated modification.
Overtime, breaks and unpaid hours are recognised and flagged precisely as are public holidays, non-standard working days and night shifts overlapping onto a second calendar day. One of the simplest examples of T&A’s innate flexibility is the ability of rounding punch-ins according to preset grace or penalty durations, and this is but one of the numerous scenarios and configurations T&A can cater for, given its fully user-definable configuration
Time & Attendance also addresses security issues comprehensively, with security applied to data, menus, windows, fields and audit trails. Reliability and accuracy is ensured by means of optimised algorithms and processing techniques.
With full flexibility at configuration level and the planning tools it places at your fingertips, Dakar T&A transforms the payroll function with significant contributions to automation, timeliness and accuracy.
