Reap the Benefits of the busybusy Mobile Time Clock App for Field Crews
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 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 time tracking software 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.
How Much Are These 5 Factors Costing Your Business?
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 timesheet app might be the solution you need. To determine if this is right for you and your crew, stop and ask yourself the following five questions:
1. Are your employees making unnecessary mistakes?
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? Mobile time tracking can help employees keep track of their time on the job more precisely.
2. Your work is on site, so why are you tied to a desk?
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 verify and organize 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. Investing in the right software means construction daily reports, time cards, e-signatures, documented progress and more can all be kept in the same place.
3. With today’s technology, why does it still take all day to run payroll?
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? By connecting your HR software, like ADP Workforce Now, with your time tracking software you can simplify the payroll process and eliminate the chance of human error.
4. Your workers are in the field too—right?
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 employee you’re working for. A mobile time clock app with GPS provides you with a view of employee clock in and clock out time stamps. You can see where employees are and what projects they are working on.
5. How much does time spent on each project vary?
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. By using a mobile time tracking app, you can more accurately track time spent on the job between your employees in order to improve job costing and make more accurate bids in the future.
