The Panjwani Group owns and operates over 100 retail and hotel chain locations, and manage over 1000 employees in Texas. The retail chains include Star Stop gas stations, Comfort Inn Suites and Church’s Chicken restaurants. The company was looking for a way to ensure the accuracy of time cards sent in from each location. They were also looking to eliminate the buddy punching dilemma that was causing serious losses in labor cost for years. Monitoring hourly employees and regulating overtime hours, as well as setting up new employees and implementing configurations such as holidays, labor codes, employee types, pay rules, lunches and breaks are critical to efficient company operations.
We wanted an automated system to ensure that everybody was being honest and accurate, and a solution that would speed-up and simplify the payroll process.
Panjwani researched the options, finding time-tracking systems that required employees to swipe a time card, and biometric solutions that used fingerprint recognition. "With the cards, you get an initial set free and then must buy the rest. We knew people would lose or forget their cards and we'd still be in the same position," he said. "We ruled those out and decided to use a biometric system."
“We needed to bring all of our locations onto the same timekeeping system,” said Panjwani, Administrative coordinator. “We were very interested in using a biometric system to eliminate the buddy punching problem.”
Panjwani Group turned to Easy Clocking to solve these problems through the use of our cloud based time and attendance system and advanced fingerprint time clocks with “push” technology.
Easy Clocking’s cloud based time & attendance software, combined with the EC500 advanced fingerprint time clocks. This system provides a fast, reliable and foolproof way for businesses to track employee time and attendance effectively anytime, anywhere all from an internet enabled web-browser.
