Time Clock EfficiencyThere are few, if any businesses which are operating as efficiently as they could be. It’s not something to be disheartened by; rather, it’s something to celebrate since it means that there is always room for improvement and chances to do better, no matter how well your company is already doing. In almost every area of your business, there are opportunities to make things more efficient and increase your profit margins and one of the most important of these areas is your time and attendance systems.

Especially if construction or contracting is your business, one way to make your company far more efficient in terms of its labor costs and time and attendance management is to use a portable time tracking solution like the JobClock. This portable, durable and accurate electronic time clock is the perfect choice for keeping track of employee attendance on remote job sites. Unlike paper time sheets, it’s reliable and accurate (and less wasteful since it uses no paper whatsoever; and unlike a Bundy clock, it’s strong enough to stand up to the conditions on a construction site (and it’s more accurate as well).

Cut Company Labor Costs

Labor is one of the largest of your overhead expenses and while there may not be a lot you can do to control the costs of materials and other essential costs of doing business in the construction industry, you can keep your labor costs down by using the JobClock portable time tracking system along with compatible time and attendance software in your home office. The JobClock is as easy to use as can be; you can take it to your job site, lock it down wherever it’s convenient for your workers, issue your staff individual key tabs to clock in and out and its ready to use.

The JobClock eliminates time theft since it’s impossible for employees to pad their hours or to clock in and out for one another, so you’ll pay only for hours your workers actually spend on the job. This feature alone can produce incredible savings for your company. Even if time theft or honest mistakes made on time sheets only add up to a few minutes per employee every pay period, this can amount to weeks of wages paid unnecessarily over the course of a single year.

You’ll also find that using a portable time tracking system makes payroll processing much quicker and easier. The time and attendance data from the JobClock can be transferred to your office computer system using a portable USB drive or sent via a smart phone. With Time Summit and AccountLinx time and attendance software, you can then import this data directly into Quickbooks, Timberline and other widely used accounting programs to make your company’s payroll something which your bookkeepers won’t dread having to handle.

While there may always be room for improvement in your business, using the Job Clock portable time tracking system can go a long way towards making your company more efficient and putting a sizeable dent in your overhead expenses. If you’re looking for a way to improve efficiency, this is the best place to start.
