Given the nature of work done in warehousing, utmost efficiency is required to survive within the competitive industry. Every minute counts, from order fulfillment to inventory management. Accurate employee timekeeping sits at the heart of this efficiency, impacting everything from payroll accuracy to labor cost optimization. That’s why a large portion of warehousing companies rely on Kronos/UKG for workforce management. When it comes to time capture, using iPads as Kronos/UKG time clocks can elevate employee timekeeping. With the CloudApper AI TimeClock for Kronos/UKG, warehousing companies gain a user-friendly and customizable solution that runs on iPads. Let’s dive deep!

Why Timekeeping Matters in Warehousing

For warehousing companies, accurate timekeeping goes beyond just payroll. Here’s why it’s crucial:

Labor Cost Management

Precise time data helps identify areas for optimized scheduling and resource allocation, leading to significant cost savings. You can pinpoint precisely how much time is spent on picking and packing specific items, unpacking incoming deliveries, or operating various machinery – all of this can be done with job transfers. This granular data allows you to identify inefficiencies, adjust staffing levels accordingly, and negotiate better rates with suppliers or clients based on accurate labor costs.

Operational Efficiency

Knowing where your workforce is and when allows for better task assignments, ensuring orders are fulfilled on time. With real-time insights into employee location and availability, managers can optimize task distribution and ensure the right people are assigned to the right jobs at the right time. This reduces bottlenecks, keeps operations flowing smoothly, and ensures orders go out the door without delays.

Inventory Management

Accurate timekeeping helps track labor hours spent on inventory control, assisting with cost calculations and future planning. By capturing time associated with tasks like cycle counting, stock put-aways, or managing damaged goods, you can calculate the exact labor cost associated with each aspect of inventory management. This data can then be used to optimize inventory control processes, reduce shrinkage, and improve future staffing and resource allocation planning.


Warehousing adheres to strict labor laws, and accurate timekeeping ensures compliance with regulations like the FLSA (Fair Labor Standards Act). Automatic time capture with CloudApper AI TimeClock eliminates the possibility of buddy punching or missed breaks, ensuring compliance with labor laws and minimizing the risk of audits or fines.

Kronos/UKG: A Trusted Partner for Warehousing Workforce Management

Many reputed warehousing companies leverage Kronos/UKG for comprehensive workforce management and are ideally positioned to leverage the CloudApper AI TimeClock. Since it seamlessly integrates with Kronos/UKG and utilizes iPads (and Android tablets) as time clocks, it’s viable solution for those who need custom employee timekeeping. Before diving into CloudApper AI TimeClock, let’s see how iPads can help warehousing companies.


iPad Time Clocks – A Flexible Approach for Warehousing

Enhanced Usability

The familiar and user-friendly iPad interface makes clocking in and out a breeze for staff accustomed to using tablets. Employees can quickly and easily punch in and out with a few taps, eliminating the need for remembering codes or swiping cards. This reduces errors and keeps the workflow moving smoothly.


Warehouses are dynamic environments. iPads enable staff to clock in and out from designated points throughout the facility, eliminating unnecessary travel to central time clocks. With mobile time capture through iPads, employees can clock in and out at their designated workstations or picking zones, optimizing efficiency and reducing non-productive time. This keeps them closer to their assigned tasks and maximizes productivity.


Many warehouses already have iPads for inventory management or communication, so leveraging existing devices can help to consolidate costs. Additionally, using iPads for multiple purposes, such as timekeeping AI TimeClock, further enhances operational efficiency and streamlines workflow processes.
