Time & Attendance

The Dakar Time & Attendance (T&A) module offers versatility. It caters for unlimited scenarios and user-defined parameter sets. We can provide you with completely tailored solutions, even for the most installation-specific shift definitions and arrangements.

Dakar T&A interfaces with the full range of biometric and other recognition systems on the market – hand readers, fingerprint systems, proximity sensors, swipe cards, iris scanners, facial recognition, phone-punch, web-punch, PC-punch, legacy time clock, telephone voice response and wireless devices.

The main menu is fully user-definable, its layout modifiable and customised fields, reports or commands can be added to the system.

Monitoring lateness is easy. Raw clockings imported from any of these devices are converted into predefined punch occurrences according to the shift definition the employee has been assigned. T&A’s daily clockings’ utility filters out errors and performs automatic corrections based upon assigned shift definitions. Inaccuracies are flagged for manual adjustment where the definition is not sufficiently clear-cut.

Our T&A module identifies and flags overtime, breaks, unpaid hours, public holidays, non-standard working days and night shifts that overlap into a second calendar day. One of the simplest examples of T&A’s innate flexibility is in the rounding of punch-ins according to preset grace or penalty periods.

With fully flexible planning tools at your fingertips, Dakar Time and Attendance transforms the payroll function with significant boosts to automation and timeliness. It is secure and intelligent algorithms ensure reliability and accuracy.
