Focus Self Service
Focus Self Service is a web clocking application to enable employees to clock in from their PC, smart phone or tablet. They can access their personal timesheet and calendar. Available as a modular add-on to the Focus Time & Attendance system.
Enable your employees to make holiday and other absence requests, view their time worked and overtime accrued or identify their scheduled cost centre. Empower supervisors to view the geographic locations of an employee web clocking using the integrated Google Maps feature, identify who’s currently clocked in and out within a team or record absences.
All features are controlled using PIN and password access and configuration options ensuring only those employees who need access to data have it.

"The web module is a great addition from the staff’s point of view as it clearly shows previous clocking and hourly totals they’ve worked, plus a summary of their calendar from which they can apply for holidays."
Paul McCourt, Systems Manager at Andrew Watt Ltd.
Enable employees to clock from their PC, smart phone or tablet whether at home, on-site or working abroad. Capture their clocking location using GPS technology – fantastic for verifying employee attendance where they’re supposed to be and the time they were there.
View clockings, time accrued at each rate, absences recorded and bonuses applied on the Timesheet page. Browse current timesheets and those from previous weeks, months or years. Hover over clocking times to view rounded time, clocking terminal used and identify shift rule applied. Also see calculated weekly totals. Useful information for the employee so they can easily see how much more time they need to work to meet targets and for the supervisor to answer queries and track employee attendance.
View the geographic location of the last web clocking on the employee’s Home page, and the timesheet. A clocking path line is shown enabling the order of previous clockings to be establish. Use Google maps features to zoom in and out of the map view and swap to satellite picture imagery of the location. All embedded within the webpage.
Calendar – Absence
Allow your employees to view their own calendar. View recorded absences (types as defined by your Focus administrator) and pending, granted and refused holiday requests. See holiday allowances and holidays remaining to be booked and sickness totals. Request holidays and other absence types permitted by the Focus administrator directly on the calendar by selecting the desired day(s). Record further information about your request in the notes section.
Allow your supervisors to view the calendars of all employees within their assigned groups and record any absence types, including sickness.
Calendar – Cost Centres
Swap the calendar view to ‘Schedule Detail’ mode to see the history and future schedule of cost centre assignment for the employee. Fantastic for employees and supervisors to identify where an employee has been and will be assigned to work.
Optionally enable your employees to view the availability of other members of the groups they belong to. Ideal for determining whether they are likely to be granted a holiday if others are already booked off. Schedule detail is also available, useful for employees who may wish to negotiate a shift-swap with a colleague or supervisors planning likewise.
Names of other employees can be either shown or hidden and absence types deemed confidential by the Focus Administrator will not be shown.
Book holiday requests and other absences directly on the Availability screen to maximise the effectiveness of having your colleagues’ information available.
Focus Self Service runs under IIS and is self-hosted on your server – either as an intranet within your organisation or you could allow remote access for access via the world wide web.
