Traditionally a time and attendance systems allows the employee to clock in or out of work by punching or stamping a card inserted into a machine. This records the relevant time in/out information as they arrived and left work.

By providing accurate reports and records, saving your administrative staff time consuming tedious work prone to errors, you will be serving the best interests of yourself and your employees in contributing to a successful business.
