Recording Tips and Mileage

TimeForge is a complete labor management package, and one powerful feature is the ability to track time and attendance for staff members. TimeForge can track hourly or salaried employees, and can also track information about each shift worked.

In many businesses, employees need to record tips and mileage on a per-shift basis. Tip tracking allows management to accurately report the income that individual staff members are earning, and mileage reporting allows staff members to receive mileage reimbursements for their vehicles.
