How it Works

ABILITY SMARTFORCE Attendance simplifies attendance tracking and reporting with usability, mobility, security, real-time updates, and seamless integration.

Cutting-edge technologies to streamline attendance tracking and reporting.

ABILITY SMARTFORCE Attendance key features:

    • Integration with ABILITY SMARTFORCE Scheduler: See flags on the live schedule when staff have clocked in or missed their shift. Run a variance report to show how actual worked hours differ from scheduled hours.
    • Geo-location with iBeacon technology: More accurate than GPS, iBeacon recognizes a fixed location within a few feet, so you know where employees are when they clock in from their mobile phones or tablets.
    • Auto-code enabled: Streamline pay code management by defining pay codes like holidays or orientation up front. This healthcare time and attendance software then automatically adds these codes based on the schedule.
    • Configurable to your organization’s needs: Includes configurable timecard rules, custom time codes, and allows the construction of organization-specific rules.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do staff need a separate application to clock in?

No. If staff already have ABILITY SMARTFORCE Scheduler on their device, they can use that to clock in.

How can I trust staff are clocking in from the appropriate location?

The application recognizes a fixed location, with a range of just a few feet, so you can always see where an employee has clocked in.

What happens if a manager changes a shift start time or cancels a shift?

Not a problem. Staff will receive an alert of any schedule changes before they clock in.
