Facial Recognition

Employees can punch in and out or login by using a live image from a webcam. You no longer have to worry about buddy punching as our system guarantees an employee is punching time for themselves and no one else.

Facial Recognition is supported on Chrome for desktops and laptops – this includes Windows, Chrome OS, and iOS laptops and desktops. Facial Recognition also works using our Android and iOS application giving you and your employees plenty of options.

Geofencing

The Geofences feature gives you the ability to make sure your employees are only punching in and out while at the correct job site.

You can create a radius around a location that your employees must punch in and out from. If they are not within the location, they will not be allowed to punch in.

Employees can be assigned multiple geofences.

IP Lock on Tablet or Workstation

If you are looking for a way to ensure your employees are only punching out from a specific device or location, our IP Address Lock feature can help you achieve that.

Just specify which IP Address you want your employees locked to, assign your employees, and that’s it! If an employee tries to punch in on a device with a different IP Address, they simply will not be able to.

Supports Locations, Departments, and Positions

LOCATIONS:

With our Locations feature you can create a location for your employees to punch into. You can create as many locations as you would like and assign them to your employees. When employees punch in, they will be required to select the location they are working at.

If only one location is assigned, employees will be automatically punched into that location – no selection is required. The time spent at each location will be viewable on the employees time card as well as on your reports.

DEPARTMENTS:

Department Codes allow you track the amount of time your employees spend working on a specific job, or for a particular company throughout their workday.

If an employee needs to change job codes during their shift, they can easily punch into a different code. All time that spent on each job can be viewed in each employee’s time card as well as on your reports.

POSITIONS:

Create and assign positions to your shifts. If your employees work more than one position, have them select which one they’re working that day. Time will be split by position when viewing your reports.

Automatic Calculation of Overtime

Select from more than a dozen overtime types to determine how your Overtime is calculated.

We support many different types of overtime, all on a per employee basis. Each employee can have a different overtime type if needed. 

Easy Integration with Other Systems

Investing in any software solution requires a return on investment, so choosing a system that is both effective and flexible is essential. With the MBS Scheduling Solution you won’t have to worry about integrating it with other tools, as it’s designed to make the process as simple as possible.

You can connect to accounting programs such as QuickBooks, Excel, Paychex, Paylocity, Gusto, ADP Workforce Now, and many others with just a few clicks of a button.

Our software also seamlessly integrates with the most popular payroll vendors, has an API, and can even be configured to work with over 1000 websites and apps via Zapier.

Notifications

We offer several built in notifications for both Administrators and Managers when something occurs with one of their employees. Whether that be an employee requesting a change to their time card or if they get automatically punched out, we will be sure to let you know via email.

Once your pay period closes we will send you an email so you can download your time cards for payroll. We automatically send out notifications for all important actions taken on your account.

In addition to our system notifications, Administrators, Managers, and Employees have the ability to enable certain notifications options from within their profile. These notifications can only be enabled or disabled by the user themselves.

PTO

Administrators can track different types of time by giving each employee various banks that can be created, added to and used.  

You can create custom rules for PTO accruals and you can create one time entries for employees.

The reporting feature allows you to see how much accrued time an employee has in their bank and when the bank increased and decreased.

You can turn PTO on and off, manage the types that you offer, and also create rules for when PTO Accrues.
