Challenges

First, Beauty Consultant Limited was using conventional paper card punching attendance devices, which is easy to cause losses of attendance cards of retail staffs which mean losses of attendance records. Re-application of attendance would hard without proof, these would cause disadvantages to personnel management. Second, shifts of service industry require high flexibility, multiple shifts and timeslots, overtime shifts are divided into before-shift and after-shift overtime shifts, and it also involves holiday shifts due to higher client flows in holidays. Third, there are generally more abnormal attendances in beauty care and cosmetics industry. Beauticians are often required to have field work for events or in branch shops; management representatives need to regularly have shop visits; below-the-line activities and promotions are often organized too. These may affect the attendance records. At the end of each month, HR staffs need to manually collect attendance records of each branch shop and perform calculations. The massive size of data consumes high time and manpower for calculations, which would not do any favor to the enhancement of work efficiency. With the development and growth of an enterprise’s scale, HR’s duties are no longer limited to administration works including performing recruitment, filing documents etc. especially to an enterprise like Beauty Consultant Limited. However, considering the limitations of capital, resources and talents, it would be pragmatic and economic if they are offered a management software that would assist them to enhance professionality and maturity of management.
