With its ability to leverage data and self-learning capabilities, artificial intelligence has the potential to assist businesses in time management and in handling the workforce.
FREMONT, CA: With emerging technologies and trends, companies are forced to analyze their existing legacy systems and reinvent many of their processes according to the market or business requirements. The firms often end up realizing that they require disruptive fixes in their current systems to accommodate digitalization and modernization. Businesses are also realizing the value of recording and managing time to deal with the modern workforce. The best time management system assimilates maximum data while taking the least inputs from employees and supervisors. Artificial intelligence (AI), with its ability to leverage data and self-learning capabilities, has a potential in this sector too. It can also be applied for heavy lifting in the process of collecting time-related data while adding context and connecting it to metric, resulting in an efficient and streamlined system altogether.
New Tools for the Purpose
Automated data harvesting and seamless integration are feasible with the help of advanced intelligent technologies. Capturing mobile and non-intrusive data minimizes the requirement for manual time inputs from employees while automatically updating the centralized database. Advancements like facial recognition mean that the employees can directly walk up to their time clock and login process is accomplished without any manual interference. The systems can further be updated so that the employees can strike up a conversation with a chatbot about their login time and accurate data collection.
Apart from assisting with administrative functionalities, automated systems can simplify business processes by confirming real-time data with built-in exceptions that allows visibility to the supervisors, when and where it is required. Companies can also streamline areas such as payrolls or compliance and approvals while increasing collaboration and offsetting errors significantly.
As companies have access to massive data sets, businesses are empowered to make critical decisions without wasting much time. Advanced alerts and notifications enable the managers and supervisors to make proactive decisions with accurate management of data. Up-to-the-minute information over various aspects such as compliance, hours worked, exceptions, and resource availability, the probability of errors and wasted time are eliminated.
