What is workforce management software?

Workforce management software (or WFM, for short), is a term that describes all apps and programs that help business owners and administrators manage their staff. This process can be achieved by using apps designated for:

  • Task activity and management
  • Attendance tracking
  • Accurate time reporting
  • Project distribution

Clockify manages to encompass all of these areas and give employers a way to manage their staff without losing valuable hours.

Regulate clock-in and clock-out via apps

Employees log their attendance tracking hours in the timesheet

Alternatively, people can enter hours in web timesheet

Each team member gets their own timesheet, where they can select what they worked on and log how much time they spent on it.
