With technology on the rise, businesses have now started to integrate software (such as time sheet and tracking software) into their systems. This is to help track employee attendance and maintain and monitor stock levels.
An inventory control system is an important aspect for all businesses as it keeps an accurate merchandise count. The two most popular inventory control systems to choose from are between a computerised system and a manual inventory system.
In terms of efficiency, computerised systems are often way better than manual ones. Manual systems usually involve labour-intensive work and require continuous monitoring. As well as this, every product needs to be manually maintained at the appropriate stock levels.
With manual inventory systems it is also more difficult to share relevant information across departments and harder to access inventory reports. With this type of system, your team are hence wasting time they could use on something more productive for your business.

The main drawbacks of using a manual job card system
The potential for human error
With anything that is manually done, there is always the risk for human error. With regards to manual job cards, employees may sometimes enter incorrect time details. Manually entering information into your accounting software for payroll may also sometimes lead to inaccurate details and hence inaccurate pay. These errors are common in a workplace when using manual time attendance solutions & job cards.
Employee Time Theft
Unlike computerised inventory systems, manual time sheets and job cards do not prevent time theft or buddy punching. Manual time sheets also allow for employees to use other employee's job cards to log for their hours. Fortunately, with Eworks Manager, you can stay clear of this issue and ensure that your employees are working their required hours and shifts.
Manual Job Card Tracking
Handling manual job cards often takes up a lot of time. Various people and departments become responsible for having to track the movement of job cards. With our job management software, your staff can better spend this time elsewhere.
Overall out-dated manual job cards are very inefficient. Using a good job card management software can increase productivity and efficiency and saves your employees time from the unnecessary hassles of manual systems.
