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 of portable time tracking can be.

It’s not easy for your workers, it’s not easy for the people who work in your home office and of course, it’s not easy for you as a business owner or manager knowing that you’re almost certainly paying out more in labor costs than you should be. You don’t have to do things this way anymore though; you could begin using a portable time clock in the place of those hand written time sheets and save everyone concerned a lot of time and trouble – and save your company a great deal of money.

Time sheets serve a purpose when they’re the only option open to you, but they’re hardly the only game in town anymore. You can now choose from mobile timekeeping systems which can be installed on the job site quickly and easily and not only will they save your company money by providing your firm with an accurate method of on-site time tracking, but are actually far easier to use than the now hopelessly out of date system of handwritten time sheets.

Solutions like the Job Clock are incredibly easy to install at your remote job sites and easy to deploy. Every employee who works on the site is assigned an individual keychain tab which they use to clock in and out, taking your employee time and attendance system from something which relies on guesswork to one which is as accurate and reliable as anything you’d have installed in your home office. It’s easy for your employees to use on the job site; and it makes things much easier for your bookkeeping department as well.

Instead of having to go over all of those time sheets individually and manually add up employee hours, your staff can simply import hours and attendance information from your mobile timekeeping system to your company’s accounting software to make payroll a quick and easy process. If you’re outsourcing your payroll operations to another company because you’d rather avoid the headache of dealing with time sheets, you can start handling it all in-house – and save a lot of money in the process. Sometimes the easiest thing to do is also the best thing for your business and using a modern portable time tracking system like the Job Clock is just about the easiest thing in the world.

Peter Morrissey has been working with employee time and attendance for more than 15 years, Peter has supplied more than 3000 customers around the world with employee time management systems. He has seen the good, the bad and the ugly. Peter bought the JobClock system into Australia in 2008 to fill a void not being covered at the time. As cloud technology has come along the JobClock system not only services construction but many more industries hungry for employee labour costing information.
