TikTok is one of the biggest global brands. It leads as a widely used social network, engaging a diverse user base. With offices worldwide, including LATAM, its HR team sought a solution to navigate the labyrinth of the ever changing labor laws. They recognized the outdated nature of manual time tracking via time books, spreadsheets, and calculators.
Being a global leader demands investing in solutions that offer:
- Proven, quantified results
These core aspects were essential for team management. Thus, TikTok pursued a digital time tracking system fitting their profile and needs.
For those unfamiliar with digital time management and its benefits for your business – here’s the short version:
Day’s Impact on TikTok
Day.io, through its LATAM brand Oitchau, provides a digital platform for employees to log their work hours online via smartphones or tablets. This approach offers several advantages that enhance HR teams’ efficiency:
- Real-time tracking
- Report and dashboard creation
- Time bank management
- Easy integration with other systems to automate processes
On their day-to-day, employees log their arrival, departure, and breaks using features like biometry, facial recognition, or mobile apps. TikTok leverages Oitchau’s geolocation technology for precise monitoring of work hours, regardless of location.
Data Security and Legal Compliance
Oitchau securely stores time data, automates calculations of hours worked, overtime, and rest periods, aiding in legal compliance. It adheres to Ordinance 671 (issued on Nov 8, 2021) governing digital time control, ensuring adherence to labor laws and data security.

Time tracking is crucial, especially for large firms like TikTok with diverse work setups—remote, in-person, or hybrid. Standardizing time tracking across different methods, be it time clocks or apps, is essential for a unified data processing approach. Oitchau met this challenge head-on, providing versatile integrations. Not only does it sync with various time clocks, but it also allows remote employees to log hours on the go via its mobile app.

The system facilitates real-time tracking of overtime, defining:
- Overtime caps
- Allocation of overtime hours—either as paid or banked

This integrated approach by Oitchau not only fulfills legal obligations but also streamlines TikTok’s operational processes, ensuring informed management and a more organized workday for all.
