Internal auditing gives you the details before you have to complete an annual report or make labor decisions. For instance, you can use working time directive reports to calculate average working hours.
You may also need to use the import utility to add other information that is crucial to synchronizing data between your system and a third-party vendor. This includes automated attendance reporting to distribute reports to supervisors and managers.
