Franchise Timeclock Features
Our franchise timeclock is called LabourGuard
- “Overtime Defence ”, Abcom’s proprietary Labour Rules
Engine, operates continually to avoid costly labour penalties -
applying even the most complex rules from Awards, Agreements and
legislation by displaying warnings in real time as the employee tries
to clock on – i.e. BEFORE breaches occur.
- LabourGuard can interface with compatible Employee Scheduling
Systems to ensure the hours you schedule are the hours your employees
- Role-based security, unique user security codes and optional
employee photos combine to prevent employee clocking fraud and ensure
that the expenditure you make on labour is directed towards a better
customer experience in your restaurant.
- Simple, secure Manager Override functions allow for full control of employee clockings.
- Colour-coding via a simple Green = OK but Red = a Bad Clocking,
provides instant visual feedback when selecting an employee to Clock In
or Clock Out.
- LabourGuard is a software engine that can be implemented
on a variety of Microsoft Windows based hardware – either standard or
In locations where there are a significant number of employees who
are required to clock on/off throughout the trading day, it is
recommended that LabourGuard be deployed on a wall-mounted touch-panel
PC. This has the added advantage of a low cost solution to avoid
staff interrupting customers being served when using a POS-based time
and attendance recorder. Alternatively, where the location has only a
few employees, LabourGuard can be installed onto pre-existing
compatible hardware within the store, such as a POS terminal or PC.
Reduce Payroll Costs
By precisely recording employee clockings as they occur in
the restaurant, LabourGuard dramatically improves the accuracy and
reduces the costs of the whole payroll administration function as the
data captured is electronically fed into the Abcom Payroll system with
its unrivalled, automated award interpretation of Australian Awards
and Workplace Agreements.
Eliminate Accidental Overtime Payments
LabourGuard’s Overtime Defence module requires manager
override before an employee can clock in/out when those clockings
would commence overtime or other penalties. This greatly reduces
situations where being even a minute out can have a significant impact
on Payroll Costs.
Improve Restaurant Operations
Use of the optional Scheduling Integration Module in
LabourGuard can improve your restaurant operations by ensuring
employees start, take breaks, and finish their shifts WHEN scheduled.
Minimise Legal Liability
LabourGuard promotes compliance with legislative
restrictions on child employment. LabourGuard can thus protect your
business from costly penalties that may otherwise occur.
