Workforce Management for Agriculture
Employee Management for a Moving Workforce
With employees moving between offices, greenhouses, pastures, crop fields and more, agriculture requires flexible workforce management. We’ve developed, improved and supported flexible, effective workforce management solutions for the agricultural industry since our founding over 30 years ago.
Robust Punching Options
From remote locations to vast facilities, we know that time clocks aren’t one-size-fits-all. We offer a variety of on-site and geolocation-enabled time clock solutions.
Time clocks are an easy way to collect accurate data for employees. Punch using PIN, badge, or biometric and a time-stamped punch transaction is collected, giving you precise worked times for your employees.
Using a mobile application, employees can punch, transfer, or enter hours on a daily worksheet. With ESS Mobile, GPS mapping is also available to record the location of punches and transfers on an interactive map.
Employees can punch or enter time worked as either total hours or punch times. An option to allocate those hours to specific departments is also available.
Same-day Employee Pay
Offering a daily pay option to employees is shown to reduce absenteeism by 34%  and reduce turnover by 40% . Pay on Demand™ allows employees the option to receive a portion of their day’s earnings as soon as they punch out, at no additional cost. No employee fees, no employer fees, and no additional work for your payroll department.

Why Advanced Time is Good for Your Business
Simple Employee Data Entry
The seasonal nature of agriculture can lead to double or triple-entry of employee data across several data systems. Eliminate unnecessary paperwork and repeated employee data entry with a cohesive system of record, available through partnership with Advanced Time.
Streamline Management Tasks
Beyond entering employee data multiple times across systems, agricultural organizations also spend excess time printing and faxing time cards, manually editing time cards, and checking to ensure time card accuracy. Our solutions offer a reprieve from these laborious tasks with intuitive, paperless all-in-one solutions to reduce administrative workload.
Better Cost Control
Make educated workforce decisions that affect your bottom line with our real-time labor dashboard, like easily filling open schedule positions. Our solutions help you identify your true “cost of business,” allowing you to take back control of other unnecessary workforce expenses.
Pay on Demand™ for Agriculture
The seasonal nature of agriculture traditionally comes with a consistently high turnover rate with no guarantees of return employees. Offering unique, helpful benefits to employees can provide your company with a competitive advantage over competitors.
Pay on Demand, a wage advance benefit, allows employers to give employees access to a percentage of their daily earnings at the end of their shift. Offer instant pay with no additional costs, fees or payroll process changes.
“Advanced Time offers amazing support, and they’re always accessible with a ready answer when we have questions about our system. Overall, they’re just a great group of people to work with.”
