3 ways GPS employee time tracking can help you in your business

September 21st, 2014

Time is critical when it comes to construction. You’ve got deadlines to meet and projects to finish, and if you’ve got workers starting late or wasting time driving supplies around or chasing paperwork, it becomes harder and harder to meet your goals.

The no-fee-GPS feature of ExakTime Mobile will help you keep an eye on your workers and job sites. GPS time tracking gives you the features you need to manage time more efficiently, saving you money now and later.

Here are three ways our GPS feature will help your business excel.

Keep an Eye on Employees
All contractors have employees in the field, but it can be hard to keep track of who is where. When you use ExakTime Mobile as your time clock, each worker’s clock-in and clock-out will be GPS stamped. You can go back and make sure employees were actually at the job site when they said they were. If they weren’t, a red flag will appear in their time record.

Easily see the history of an employee’s clocking’s with the option of turning on the feature to take a photo each time the employee signs in and out at the start and end of the day as well as when they change tasks or cost codes.

With a PIN required for clock-in and a photo biometrics option available, time card fraud is no longer an issue.

Supervisors and Managers get access to a company wide map giving instant visibility on the map showing where every worker last clocked in. This tool is a great feature in the office when you get the call from the customer asking where Sam is. You can simply look at the “Team View” mapping software and you can see if Sam has already left the last job and how long he has been traveling for.

Efficiently Dispatch to Sites
When a job site needs help, it’s easy to dispatch a crew to that location with GPS tracking. If location A needs an extra worker or two, you can quickly check nearby job sites to see how many employees are at each one. If location B is close and has a surplus of workers, you can dispatch a few of them to the new job site.

What normally might have taken a few phone calls and some mapping now takes just a minute.

Supervisors or managers can manage this out in the field while admin staff in the office can also have access to manage these situations.

Deliver Supplies Quickly

You can efficiently deliver supplies to your crews using GPS time tracking because you’ll know exactly where they are. Crews are often on the go, and when they message for more lumber or equipment, you’ll know where to head.

Your time is valuable. GPS time tracking will increase the efficiency of your business, saving you time and money. You can watch your company grow from your smartphone thanks to the easy-to-use GPS feature on ExakTime Mobile.
