FAQs about Construction time tracking

When does busybusy's GPS track employee locations?

We know privacy is important to you and especially to your employees so busybusy ONLY tracks GPS locations when an employee is clocked in. . Your privacy is important to busybusy too. That’s why you and your employees can rest easy knowing that busybusy only collects and records GPS data during the hours they are clocked in. So, no. We can’t help you find which bar you left your phone at Saturday night. 😂. But seriously, even if your employee has an accident and their spouse calls you as the owner asking where they are, please don’t call us because we don’t know. If they are not clocked in we have ZERO idea and we can’t access their location.

Can GPS be turned off for certain employees?

Absolutely. We designed our GPS settings to be customizable for each employee. Owners/admins can decide if GPS is set to “required”, on but “not required”, or “off”. If you change your mind, GPS can easily be turned on or off company wide or per employee.

How much battery power does the busybusy app use?

busybusy takes battery optimization seriously. After all, what good is a mobile time-tracking app if it drains a phone’s battery? busybusy has been calculated to run on 500kb-1.5MB of data a day which is the same amount of power it takes to make 30-90 second phone call (or less time than it takes to call and wish your aunt happy birthday.) In other words, your employee’s phone battery will barely know we exist.

Does the busybusy app use a lot of data?

A great app optimizes battery life and minimizes data usage. Just how minimal is the data usage for busybusy? Math nerds and tech geeks at busybusy have crunched the numbers, and the busybusy app has been calculated to use about 500 kb of data a day. This is roughly equivalent to a 30 second YouTube video. That being said, if employees are uploading photos from the jobsite, this can increase their data usage. One medium photo (default setting) takes approx. 250 kb of data to upload. This means an employee could upload four photos while using the app, and busybusy’s data usage would equal roughly 1.5 MB of data per day or less than a single bathroom break worth of youtube videos. 📲 🚽 🧻

Is customer support free for everyone?

Of course! Customer support is free to everyone: employees, admins and owners, whether you are Free or Pro. You can contact us via email, phone or chat and we'll get back to you ASAP. The best part, our customer support staff are all industry professionals!

Does busybusy offer a spanish version of the app?

Si, lo tenemos! busybusy will automatically open in Spanish if an employee’s phone is configured for Spanish. And, our outstanding customer service has dedicated Spanish personnel to answer any questions or help with training.

Does busybusy Integrate With Other Software?

One lesson we learned in kindergarten was to play nicely with others. That’s why busybusy integrates with other software systems you’re currently using like Quickbooks, Procore, Sage, Viewpoint, Foundation, ComputerEase, Explorer, ADP, Paychex, and many others. If you don’t see your software listed here, just ask us.

"I tried five to six different types of time tracking systems, including: TSheets, Fingerprint cards, regular paper time cards, even key fob systems where they use a key to clock in and out every single day. It just never worked, nothing ever worked. As soon as we started using busybusy I knew right then that for time keeping we had found the solution."

“I love the entire system! I can see who’s clocked in, where they’re clocked in and see pictures of progress at the same time. The time card printing is fantastic as well. I really like seeing the breakdown of each cost code. It really makes my job easier and 100% more convenient!”

“busybusy helps us with accountability. It is no longer, ‘I may have worked 8 hours’, when in reality it is ‘I worked a little over 7 hours’ . busybusy is a huge part of helping us be competitive in our industry. With busybusy, you can get the feedback and reports that you can’t get anywhere else. Most of all we are more efficient on the jobsite.”
