Time registration is a burning issue. For example, 70% of the companies that become Protime clients today are ‘new to the market'; companies that did not previously use time registration. And no, they are not all production companies with blue collar workers. Of those new customers, 50% are knowledge-based companies that want to make more and better use of flexible work. The other 50% are companies that want to professionalize.
Of course, prejudice about time registration has its roots somewhere. After the industrial revolution, the demand for time registration arose. People had to be able to be paid per hour worked. Time registration took on a whole new dimension when glide times were introduced. Sliding time was a first form of flexibility where you had to work within predefined core time, and the hours before and after you were flexible. But this glide time was (and still is) often eroded, where it is a matter of saving minutes to get a free hour.
