Computer nowadays is a basic need for businesses or companies. It helps a lot in such a way that it makes work more progressive and productive. It is an important thing that a company or small business should have because it helps a lot in many ways such as organizing, storing and manipulating data. Having computer programs may help a company grow bigger and be competitive in the flow of the business world. It helps a lot because almost all the companies nowadays uses computer literate and very competitive in many aspects.
Background of the Study:
Edgardo Valencia, an Electrical Engineer and the owner of Energy Link Corporation started a business which sells capacitors for household use and other buildings. They invented some products which also concern the electrical engineering works like Power Capacitors, Uninterruptible Power Supply, Automatic and Voltage Regulator. They also started to do services that also concerns electrical engineering works like designing and construction of electrical
system, energy and power management consultancy, installation of automatic and manual power capacitor banks, electrical system maintenance, automatic and manual transfer switch, power system and battery switch and metal enclosure fabrication. And now, they look forward to become one of the nation’s leading electrical contractors, supplier of electrical equipments and provider of solutions to energy / power. Till now the company is successful since its establishment.
Scope and Limitation:
The study focuses on the monitoring of attendances of the employees in Energy Link Corporation. The attendance monitoring system is concerned in getting the time when an employee logs in and out and whether the employee is present or not. In the same time the computation of hours work and monitoring of over time, late and outdoor work are included. The holidays and computation of salary is not included in the system. The system will not take account of the attendance of the legal staff such as the partner and associate lawyers because they are considered as the executive personnel.
Flow of the Current System:
Energy Link Corporation handles their attendance by using time cards and bundy clock. The time card holds a lot of information about the employee. The Bundy Clock is the one that puts the time when the employee checks in or out. First an employee is given a time card which holds their attendance information. They insert their time card into the bundy clock which holds the time. After they have finished their work, they should insert again their time cards into the bundy clock for the information when and what time they left the company. The computation of hours work is done after the last employee checks out of the company, they do this by checking the log in and log out of the time card of an employee and compute for the working hours on that certain day.
Data Managed by the Current System:
There are a lot of data that the company keeps for reports. And attendance is one of the most important things that the company should monitor. Employee information is needed for the company to know the background of an employee. Information like whether the employee is absent or not and what time does the employee arrives in the company and left the company. This is where the time card
is used. It holds what time the employee checks in and checks out. It also concern the overtime of an employee.
File Management Used by the Current System:
The records of Energy Link Corporation regarding attendance are stored in a file cabinet. They use the file cabinet to store the data alphabetically for them to locate them easily. Concerning their attendances, they use a time card and Bundy clock for log in and log out. The time card holds all the information about the employee. After a month, all the time cards are stored in a file cabinet alphabetically. Then an attendance report is printed and submitted to the manager/owner for them to check all the data.
CHAPTER II Review of Related Literature and Studies
Aquilan (2004) made a comparable thesis on the automation of time attendance that records the time in and time out of every employee using barcode system. It tends to eliminate the manual recording system of time and attendance and also include salary computation of each employee based on the time and attendance reports.
Ramon Faloran (2005) wrote in the article “The Computer Edge of the New Employment and Opportunities “in the Philippine Daily Inquirer. He stated that computer gives you a different feeling about what is happening in the company. Business will be highly competitive and innovative because the computer provides instant information.
Study by Cantoma (2004) in her thesis entitled “Computer Library System for St. James Academy” stated that, in manual system in retrieving, maintaining security and piling records take place because of the years gone by. Furthermore, these files were only kept in envelopes and folders in wooden rocks. There are also
instances when the right information is given to a wrong person, which affect quality of service.
According to Primer (2005), for many businesses automating the collecting of employee attendance data when employees begin their shifts is still a manual process. Even business that has automated or computerized processes such as scheduling, inventory, purchasing, general ledger and payroll processing still use manual methods such as time cards or attendance sheets to collect time and attendance data.
NOVAtime (2007), the system that will give management the power to not only utilize the tools we have available to us today, but will continue to grow and evolve, giving it the capability to incorporate and utilize the tools the new millennium promises to bring us.
NOVAtime has brought a system designed for growth while maintaining the maximum in flexibility. Where the sophistication lies within the programmed mechanism of the system, allowing for a quick and simple implementation and employee training cycle.
After all the true test of a system is not only in the production and wealth of reporting, but in the simplicity and ease of its operation, in conjunction with a simple and accommodating implementation program.
Mendrez (2007) made a similar study for Vision Designer Inc. It has an identification machine aimed at verifying a person entering through the swiping of identification cards. After entering their given code number, the identification cards are swiped in the machines card reader to trigger the verification. If access granted, the micro switch will then automatically unlock to allow enter. This will help a lot in monitoring attendances accurately and more precise.
A group of computer engineers in Rebisco Biscuits Corporation proposed a thesis report for what is the same Innodata Corps is implementing right now a computerized daily time record as an alternative for Bundy clock. The means of getting inside the company premises is by swiping cards into a machine that reads every record of each employee then monitor and displays the time a particular employee logs in and out.
In the 2005 annual report of the Forest Products Research and Development Institute under the Department of Science and Technology, it is said that, “The computerized database and attendance on Forest Products Research and Development Institute was designed to facilitate the Institute's data entry, processing, computation and maintenance of employee time and attendance transactions. The system allows employees to log in/out as the swipe their IDs through a barcode reader attached to a computer terminal. The processing forms include those for legal holidays, travel order, tardiness, undertime, vacation and sick leave. Pertinent Report forms have been designed for easier access to all these data.”
Columbia State Community College (2006) uses computer identification account (Log In Name and Password) for access to the institutions computer usage logs occurs electrically through the individual users log in/out process. Users are also informed that they are responsible for any computer file’s, database and/or internet sites that are accessed through their computer identification account, not withstanding their failure to adhere to the log in/out process, on their voluntary publication of their account information to others.
FOREIGN STUDY My Time Force (2006), TimeForce is the key to proficient and successful time tracking and management in your workplace. It is a software-based time and attendance system that allows the user to collect and organize employee time data simply and accurately. You can use TimeForce to:
