Managing employees is one of the most time-consuming and burdensome tasks a business owner has. No one really wants to “babysit” grown people to make sure they are where they are supposed to be, and this is multiplied if you have field employees. You not only need to track their time but also where they are. Are they recording their time manually? Are they recording their time accurately? Were they actually where they said they were when they recorded their time? How do you know they are not punching in while they are leaving their house instead of sitting at their desk? On-Time Web was built to do its part to bring a little more peace of mind to business owners.
On-Time Web mobile incorporates Geo Tracking in the mobile apps (both iPhone and Android), so you not only record time accurately, you also can know where your employees are when they clock in and out. If you set the default settings to require GPS/Location Services, employees who are using the mobile apps are required to have that feature turned on before they can record their time. This can also provide evidence to clients that your employees were where they were supposed to be when they started and finished on site.
On-Time Web also tracks IP Location when using laptops and public computers. If someone logs into their On-Time Web account and makes a punch using a public computer or a laptop while on the road, you can see the area in which they made the entry. So no matter how employees make their time records, you have an idea of where it happened. If you don’t want your employees to be able to punch in from anywhere other than the office, simply turn off Mobile Access within the system and setup IP rules to only allow connection from your Office IP addresses.
What about just knowing when your employees are in or out? The On-Time Web In/Out Board lets you see who is in and who is out. There is also a status that allows the employees to note where they are or what they are working on. For example, let’s say I am in the office but not available due to meetings. I can enter, “I am in the office but am in meetings all afternoon” in my status so that anyone who looks at the In/Out Board will know that I am in but not available for outside calls.
What is one less headache managing your employees worth to you? What is the peace of mind worth if you know your employees are where they are supposed to be?
