Employee assignment data will give you all the information needed to see what the employees are doing at any given time. By providing them with this type of data, you can do some things that would otherwise be impossible to do. For example, you can perform a background check to see if an employee has been convicted of stealing from the company.
Employee status reports can be sent to an employee directly, so there is no need to visit them personally. While they are away, you can update their contact information to show that they are still working in the company. It can be difficult to track down those that have quit the company, but this type of information can be provided easily.
