Eliminate Payroll Headaches with Efficient, Portable Time Tracking

September 26th, 2010

Everyone looks forward to payday; but of course, if your job duties include payroll, then the approach of payday is also something to be dreaded to some degree. For many companies, putting together payroll involves a lot of drudgery and is an inherently error prone process. This is especially true for construction businesses and other companies whose employees largely work on remote job sites where time tracking is done by means of time sheets filled out by hand on a weekly basis.

We all know how hard it can be to read other people’s handwriting at times. While a …

No employer likes to think about the possibility that their employees might be stealing from them.

Instead, what really costs companies the most money is time; and unless you use a …

Streamline your Time Tracking with the Job Clock

September 19th, 2010

If you’re in the construction or contracting business, then it’s no secret that the way that time tracking is generally done in this industry isn’t exactly the most accurate or accountable thing in the world. Your employees spend their work days on the job site and rarely, if ever, come into the office, so they usually fill out weekly time sheets by hand, often on Fridays. If you’ve ever tried to remember down to the minute when you got to work on Monday by the end of the week, you know how inherently inaccurate this kind …

Are Your Employees As Responsible As You Think?

September 5th, 2010

Even though you do need to be able to trust your employees, you can end up losing money by trusting them too much; we’re all fallible beings and when it comes to time tracking on remote job sites, it is often a mistake to rely on the memory of your workers.

There are simply too many opportunities for errors to occur, especially if you’re using time sheets as a form of mobile timekeeping for your staff who work away from the head office. Some things work …
