Employees can work from home, the office or on the beach. Because of the IT cloud movement you no longer have to be confined to your desk. That doesn’t mean that less work gets done, it just means you have more of a flexible environment to work from. This can make you more efficient and manage your time better because you now have options. Generation Y is all about “multi-tasking” and being technology driven. So it’s only logical to have employees enter their time and expense via internet/remotely.
According to Forrester Research , as of 2011, about 34 million people work from their residence occasionally. Forrester Research also predicts that the number of people who work remotely will nearly double -- to approximately 63 million people -- by the year 2016.With that said, the modern day time and expense management needs to keep up with this growing movement.
A benefit from an employee’s perspective is being worry-free about forgetting to enter an expense or time worked. If you come home and realized you forgot to enter your time, you can now go on the internet and enter it right away. Being able to enter your time or expenses as they occur increases accuracy.
A benefit from an employer’s view is that work can get done regardless of where their employee is. It’s now easier to capture your employees’ time and expenses. No more paper!
