MenaTA®
Time Attendance Management

Punctuality is the key to productivity; punctual employees arrive on time, ready to get the day started, and are already on the way to completing their tasks. This can be achieved with MenaTA®, a comprehensive time and attendance solution that can operate via online requests based on location and, based on your preferences, using the device of your choice. It provides you with the tools you need to produce detailed schedules based on the different types of shifts to effectively manage your team’s time and attendance. Data can then be analyzed and absenteeism rates are compared with attendance; based on the results and your organization’s regulations, the system will generate transactions relating to leaves, vacations, overtimes, absences and other requests. With the combined efforts of HR professionals who are responsible for monitoring and following up with time and attendance, and employees who are responsible for submitting requests such as clocking in and clocking out, both will know the value and importance of time; thus, our system produces schedules and rosters with attendance requests and tasks that are organized down to the minute.

Timely and Accurate

With MenaTA®, HR professionals are no longer preoccupied with the day-to-day tasks of keeping track of employee’s clocking in, when they request for leaves and vacations, and when they have clocked out. Our system is a flexible, cloud-based tool with real-time updates at a central collection point that automates the processing of employee time and attendance, streamlining the process of managing and tracking employee time with ease and accuracy.

This means that errors are reduced when it comes to calculating overtime, leaves and other transactions, and the HR team can focus on other crucial tasks because of the superior record-keeping properties of the system. The system also ensures compliance with the country’s rules and regulations, keeping in line with any changing laws regarding time and attendance, leaves, and permitted vacation days for each employee, thus reducing payroll errors.

Tailored to Your Needs

MenaTA® is not a typical time and attendance management system. Not only does it allow for the real time entry and processing of data for multiple transactions including leaves, vacations, and overtime, but also allows employees to punch in and punch out via their smartphones and view their attendance history. Additionally, the processes are automated according to location; wherever the employee is at the time of clocking in and clocking out, their device will know because it is linked with GPS on Apple and Google maps to monitor their point of entry, and attendance requests can only be accepted and submitted within the set range.

Our system enhances your organization’s processes with its built in workflows for approval cycles and multi-shifts management, providing many different types of shift options based on your organization’s policies, such as flexible, fixed, general, night, evening, and day shifts. In addition, MenaTA® has the option of generating detailed reports on attendance, which can be integrated with MenaHR® and MenaPAY® for optimum data recording and retrieval.

User-Friendly Interface on Any Device

With MenaTA®, employees are able to avoid long wait times by clocking in themselves through the use of their own smartphones. With their handheld devices, our system allows for employee online self-entry. Besides the fact that MenaTA® is entirely compatible and can be easily integrated with any machine type, including biometric thumbprint scanners and iris recognition scanners and much more, our system has always supported the integration of smartphones in time and attendance, which reduces costs of installing and maintaining attendance machines. And since the emergence of COVID-19, the importance of limiting physical contact within the workplace has become crucial, so more organizations are turning to contactless solutions to prevent the spread of disease.

Our system ensures accurate data entry where employees can easily manage their time and attendance as well as providing powerful reporting features to display time and attendance. Our user friendly interface allows for the quick and neat entry of data, including many features that reduce the time needed to process employee’s time and attendance, and options that allow them to automatically calculate total hours worked, including overtimes, leaves, vacations, and holidays. This frees up HR professionals and employees alike, ensuring data entry and calculation is accurate, uploaded on time, and processed automatically.
