Jobs and Work-Orders in TimeIPS
|What are the Job Tracking capabilities of TimeIPS?|
|TimeIPS Job Tracking functionality provides the ability to create and use jobs to track the type of work employees are performing. Each job is assigned a job ID code that can be entered, selected or scanned by employees when they clock. Additional details including GL Numbers and subcodes can be set per job for costing, billing and accounting. With job tracking, you'll no longer need to wonder where your employees are spending their time - using the simple, yet effective, real time clock in / clock out functionality of TimeIPS, employees can move quickly from one job to the next throughout the day and TimeIPS will record their clock events in real time.|
|Can jobs be tracked against customers? Can jobs be categorized?|
|Yes. TimeIPS allows each job to be assigned to a customer. Multiple jobs can be assigned to the same customer, at the same time. Also, jobs have categories for organization and identification. For example, a "Cleaning" job can exist for a "Warehouse" category and an "Office" category.|
|Can employees receive special pay or differentials for working a job?|
|Yes. TimeIPS allows assigning a set pay, pay differentials and pay differential percentages to jobs. These can be set for the entire job and/or special overrides for individual employees working on the job.|
|I need to know how much time is being spent on each job by all the employees assigned to that job. Does TimeIPS allow me to view my personnel costs each day as the employees work on specific jobs?|
|Yes. At the end of each day, week or any period you desire, TimeIPS will provide you the hours and minutes worked, by employee, on each each job clocked in and out of. In addition, calculation of pay and/or cost for the job can be included in the reporting.|
|What are Work Orders? How do they relate to jobs?|
Work-orders are a set of one or more jobs that need to be tracked and completed as a set.
Jobs in work-orders can be given a budgeted time for completion and have notes per job on what needs to be done.
TimeIPS includes the ability to print work-order barcode sheets to allow employees to quickly clock into work-orders and their jobs.
Jobs can occur multiple times in a work-order. For example, a work-order for a wooden table could call for:
In this case, the two Sand jobs and two Paint jobs are tracked independently.
|How do jobs relate to "department transfers" or "tasks" in other systems?|
TimeIPS uses the term "Job" to refer to the type of work being done by an employee. The terms used to track this in other systems or organizations varies.
