Mitrefinch Australia clears up the confusion about employee time and attendance software being the same as enterprise resource planning software.

With different objectives and functions, ERP software is definitely not the same as time and attendance software, though they can sometimes tie in together in a business environment.

ERP provides an integrated view of core business processes using common databases maintained by a database management system. ERP systems are designed to track business resources such as cash, raw materials and production capacity as well as the status of business commitments such as purchase orders and payroll.

Mitrefinch’s employee time and attendance software monitors employees' clocking in and out times as well as attendance information, which can be analysed to increase productivity, cut administration costs, reduce absence and eliminate costly payroll errors. The software also offers a range of data capture options to collect relevant information that can be fed into the ERP system if required.
