Digitalization gives a new meaning to the term centralization. While computerization back in the 90s shifted manual work to a personal computer, eradicated some jobs from existence; digitalization, on the other hand, releases data, allows them to flow freely from one department to another, and even flows to multiple destinations, creating more possibilities in revitalizing business processes. The ability of data from multiple locations to be centralized and accessed in real-time makes digitalization a must-have in today’s business operation. For the latest TimeTec solution, TimeTec Claim, a feature that makes it superior to most is that TimeTec’s GPS clocking can extract point-to-point clocking data from one site to another automatically and centralize the information for honest mileage claim practice through TimeTec TA, the smart attendance.
Norana Johar, Chief Operating Officer of TimeTec Group, continues with TimeTec Workforce Series on Malaysiakini. “As consumers are getting used to the cloud system, their confidence in its security increases. Remember, once upon a time, we had to go to the bank for any banking transactions. Now, we do it every day in the comfort of our own homes, through our laptops and smartphone Apps. Is it safe? Yes. Is it effective? Definitely a yes. Now, people are focusing more on the effectiveness of the cloud system rather than anything else,” she explained.
“In shifting workforce solutions into the cloud, we can’t think of having each solution siloed. Everything has to be integrated, working as an ecosystem. One can start with a single solution and complete the whole transformation progressively. But to change only one system and consider it done is not an ideal digitalization journey.” TimeTec has been marketing its range of workforce solutions into the market comprising of TimeTec TA for Time Attendance, TimeTec Leave for Leave Management, TimeTec VMS for Visitor Management, TimeTec Hire for Recruitment, TimeTec Patrol for Security Monitoring, and the latest in the pipeline is TimeTec Claim for Employee Claim Management.
“Claim management is another aspect of the operation that has been improved by digitalization. The automation of claims simplifies mundane HR admin work, and at the same time, satisfies all stakeholders, employees, admin and management, at once,” said Norana. TimeTec Claim can automate eight claim types most commonly used by businesses, including Mileage, Meal, Utility, Accommodation, Daily Allowance, Car Rental, Airfare and Advance Payment.”
“Over time, we can foresee that our clients will require more claim types, and we are ready to customize. The adaptability is the beauty of digitalization and cloud-system. Anything is possible,” she added. Not only that, TimeTec Claim handles various claim types, different rates, and details of all claims for calculation, also are available, and a company can set multiple approvals in TimeTec Claim to suit the company’s requirements.
TimeTec Claim is an integral part of the workforce management ecosystem, and all hands on deck at TimeTec to get this solution released in 2021. Norana also talked about one handy feature in TimeTec Claim, which is the permission to export claims as billable items to customers. For example, when a company sends an engineer to a site, accommodation, transportation, airfare and more can be turned into billable items in the system quickly.
“This improvement in process efficiency is a plus point, as it can save the company a lot of time and resources. Imagine how the system would lift the HR burden tremendously in claim processing and satisfy employees at the same time. TimeTec Claim also provides an analysis of the claim trends for monitoring; it promotes transparency and increases employees engagement,” she added.
