Wasted time.

You could save this amount by eliminating the need to manually calculate and verify the accuracy of paper time cards. The American Payroll Association (APA) estimates that a payroll employee spends about 6 minutes* calculating the data on a time card.

Human error.

Save this amount by eliminating human error when processing paper time cards. The American Payroll Association shows an error rate of between 1-8% of total payroll in companies that use traditional time cards. We will use a 3% error factor for this calculation.


Employees arriving late, long lunches and leaving early all cost you. Paper time cards promote these costly activities. According to the American Payroll Association, the average weekly "theft" of time is 4 hours and 5 minutes per employee!
