A number of staffing firms still use paper timecards and expense reports, creating a highly inefficient, manual, and expensive process. Gathering paper timecards from hundreds of contractors and getting sign-off from approvers, many of whom are in different locations than the contractors, is extremely time-consuming. Additionally, operations teams must spend an inordinate amount of time each week with rote tasks such as identifying missing timesheets, verifying receipt of timesheets, and entering in data.

This process of manually collecting, approving, and re-keying timecard data leaves tremendous room for error. A single mistake can derail or delay invoicing and payroll, a nightmare for the contractor who doesn’t get paid. And delays in hiring manager approvals can prevent you from billing your clients and getting paid on time. According to the American Payroll Association, it costs staffing agencies between $15-$25 per employee per month to process paper timecards. This cost is simply unacceptable, and completely avoidable.
