Work from Different Locations?

How central is your office to your company? Is it important for your company’s activity that every employee shows up every single day to work in the same place? How does geography fit into your companies workforce management?

the 10 deadly sins of project management

In the past, there was a simple answer to these questions. The necessity, scarcity and sheer size of job-specific IT equipment meant that a company could simply not do without its workers coming to a specific location at the same time. But cloud computing and the dissemination of mobile appliances like laptops and smartphones changed that completely. In the modern environment a consultant can access data about a specific client from practically anywhere. Moreover, often it is not just a possibility but  indeed required, in cases of on-site contracts.

So is it necessary to have your employees come to your company’s office every day? Would your company’s activity still be efficient if they work from different locations? Surely, the time and effort of traveling to an office can probably save even an hour a day. On the other hand, the productivity of people working from home has a tendency to decrease. Workers in different locations, even in the age of skype and instant messaging, still necessitate time and attendance management.

So what is the right way? There is no single answer to this question: each company requires a specific combination that suits its needs and optimises its activity in a specific point in time. Any solution for time management of the company’s workers needs to fit that specific regime.

Cronforce Time Management’s prime directive in this is to allow for maximum flexibility on the one hand, and uniformity and transparency of the company’s activity on the other. A consultant who clocks in or out needs to be able to do so easily from anywhere on the globe, in any time zone and any environment, and the generated timesheet needs to be comparable to that of any other employee of the company. Cronforce’s cloud base and simple timesheet submission mechanism make it easy both for a worker to keep on working from afar and for any supervisor to track their activity. Moreover, when the regime of the employees’ location needs to change, the access to Cronforce remains the same and still offers full visibility, with a user’s submitted timesheet fully compatible with any other user.
