Time and Attendance Software – Features

Patriot’s Time and Attendance Software is an online system that works with Patriot’s Online Payroll. With it, employers have an alternative to costly time and attendance software, and because it’s web-based, they can access their data anytime or anywhere. And, because the per-employee fee is usage-based, you’ll only pay for employees who utilize timecards.
