Product Overview

LightWork Software provides customers with a variety of HR solutions and services, including LightWork Time, LightWork Talent Management and HR Lite, a part of LightWork that can serve as an HRMS alternative. This review focuses on the services and features of the time and attendance solution.

LightWork Time is a time and attendance solution that can accommodate organizations with a single location, multiple locations or remote workers. It allows managers and employees to easily input time worked via desktop punch, kiosk punch, mobile device or biometric/swipe time clock. LightWork Time also gives managers a user-friendly avenue to track and approve time sheets before passing them to payroll.


LightWork Time streamlines time-consuming tasks related to employee time and attendance. Here are some of the features that best highlight its functionality:

  • HRMS imports – LightWork Time can integrate with your current HRMS or payroll software for consistency across the company and has a lite HR component if you choose to use LightWork standalone.
