Your time is best spent with your crew, but managers often find themselves increasingly tied to a desk. That’s why when it comes to tracking employees’ hours, you need a time clock solution that’s as mobile as you are. The busybusy™ mobile time clock app gives field team managers and employees an at-their-fingertips solution for tracking productivity and for boosting job site efficiency.
busybusy™ designed its mobile time clock tool to add new levels of efficiency to mobile field work. That’s why this cloud-based timekeeping solution can be accessed from any Android or iOS smartphone or tablet, or direct from your web browser. After all, flexibility is key—just not when it comes to the hours your employees are reporting.
Field work presents a wide gamut of challenges that traditional timekeeping systems simply aren’t prepared for. When crews go mobile, managers find themselves solving problems that take their attention from the job at hand. And if you’re more focused on paperwork than the project, how can you expect to deliver the solution that will best meet your client’s needs?
If lost time and high costs are bogging you down, a mobile time clock app might be the solution you need. To determine if this is right for you, stop and ask yourself the following five questions:
Paper timesheets make it all too simple to add a few extra minutes to the day. That five minutes may not seem like much to your employees, but the person running the books knows that little chunks of time add up to big money. And what about those workers who habitually forget to punch out for breaks? When you ask them what time they clocked in from their break last Tuesday, how accurate of an answer are you expecting?
Ever stop and wonder the amount of time that’s spent moving employee time data between the job site and the office? Then once that information is in the office, what kind of time it takes to verifying and organizing data? These manual processes, and their disconnect from the field, do more than waste your time with unnecessary travel—they leave the door open for forgotten paperwork, human error and missed opportunities to provide impactful management on the job site.
After investing the money in updated accounting software, you might be wondering why the payroll process is still so lengthy and, as a result, costly. Well, that accounting software and processes is only as good as the data that’s being put in. Manual data entry and verification will continue to tie up your support people. Wouldn’t this time be better devoted to revenue generating activities?
You know they’re somewhere on that site, or on a material run, or grabbing lunch… Their timesheet can tell you, potentially, whether they’re working or not—but it can’t help you track down the only team member who can give you the answer you need now to that pressing question that had you driving across town in the first place.
The answer to this question should form the basis for the next job’s cost calculations. Manually collecting error-riddled time data makes it difficult to get a true handle on project costs.
busybusy™ has created a better way for the construction industry to track employee hours by making your time clock mobile. Learn how having access to real-time, accurate data can transform the way you do business.
The busybusy™ solution solves your most common challenges by providing the following:
A focus on reliable data. When employees clock in on the busybusy™ app, there’s no more wondering about data accuracy. Those forgetful few can be reminded by a GPS-based alert that tells workers when to clock in or out. Supervisors for smaller mobile crews can clock the entire crew in or out at once. Clocking in via the app also means a solution for cutting out time clock padding—saving companies huge dollar amounts each year. And better information also helps your employees advance at work. With concrete data, they can offer proof of productivity as evidence that it’s time for a pay raise.
A practical way to bring desk work into the field. Time and location data gathered by the automated busybusy™ app is instantly visible (or not—permissions depend on you) to your crews. Analyze data, track a project’s status, and even run certain reports right there from your mobile device. Turn your Android or iOS device into a data solution when you run employee reports or rapidly send verified information off to payroll.
An automatic solution for improving payroll processes. Inputting the data needed to run payroll once took all day, and could often result in entry errors. Now, verified data can be exported into QuickBooks or other accounting software to perform this task in under an hour. The result? Less time and money spent on office support, and more results that you can trust.
Easy visibility into where your workers are when you need them. By adding to the mobile time clock GPS capabilities, the busybusy™ solution delivers more valuable data than a traditional time tracking solution ever could. Let your team see where every member is working, or watch yourself to ensure time is being used efficiently. When working without a Wi-Fi connection, the app saves location information and adds a location stamp to the employee's time stamp information when the connection is again available. The GPS feature also connects additional data to the job—including worker notes, receipts, photos and other information. Employees can turn this GPS-based solution into a tool for planning time-saving routes across sites and making the most timely deliveries.
Accurate data for creating job costing calculations. Knowing where and when your mobile teams are working gives you an edge in calculating the time needed for the next job. With real-time data, you can better understand the amount of time a project takes and gain insight new insight into your costs.
