The biggest issue with these processes were that they themselves took too long, were cumbersome, difficult to understand, hard to write down exact start and end time of tasks, as most people had forgotten by the end of the day, and one could take time out in the middle of work. With the advent of technology it became even harder to track employees work, because if someone is on the computer, it is thought of that they are working; an extra games tab hidden away becomes unnoticed.
