busybusy™ - a time card app built by a construction company for construction companies.
Paper time cards are a waste of time and money. Time and money that you could use to hire more manpower, update and repair machinery, and buy top quality materials.
So, let’s take a closer look at how paper time cards are costing your business.
It’s not like you can walk into a cubicle forest and see everyone working efficiently. You rely on supervisors and employees to provide accurate data. It’s time-consuming to drive out to a job site and track down the workers you’re looking for. When crew members are en route, making pit stops, or getting lost, you’re losing money.
With busybusy™, you can see where your crew is when they clock in. You can even have supervisors clock in groups of workers. busybusy works in the most remote locations. So your team could be building an Alaskan ice road and the next time your device has service, busybusy time cards will automatically relay hours and GPS.
According to the American Payroll Association, the average time spent adding up timecards is nearly 10 minutes per card. It is common for organizations with a manual timekeeping and payroll process to spend five hours or more each month processing payroll. Adding in human error, your payroll processing can easily add up to thousands of dollars a year, but are you adding those costs into your project bids? We’ve built a cost calculator. Find out how much you are losing to paper time cards.
busybusy’s™ time card app removes all need for paper and manual data entry. busybusy™ totals all your employee’s timecards automatically and exports them to the payroll software of your choice.
Employees tend toward rounding up their time cards to the nearest 10 or 15-minute mark. Sometimes card inaccuracies are not intentional as employees go off faulty clocks or work in different time zones. Then you have to hope payroll can read everyone’s handwriting.
How many employees have to make zero errors for you to get an accurate estimate on time being paid for?
busybusy™ records time card data to the second. Data can easily be edited if an employee makes a mistake or forgets to clock in or out. Employees can be added to a group so that supervisors can see their entire crew at once. Supervisors can group clock in and out, switch projects, and more.
Buddy punching, embellishing, rounding, and deliberate padding are major problems in our industry and cost every company thousands of dollars. A software isn’t a complete solution to keeping your employees on task all the time, but with busybusy’s™ GPS data you can view where your employees are when they’re on the clock.
With busybusy™ you can also get instant updates on the project. Crew members at the site can upload photos and notes so that anyone on your team can access an accurate progress report.
Payroll fraud and overtime disputes are two reasons why a disgruntled employee will haul you off to court. Legally your employees have two to three years to litigate for back pay or suspected payroll fraud. With paper time cards you need to have office space dedicated to storing all the payroll documents and court documents. You then have to decide to digitize the documents, which is costly or run the risk of losing them during a fire, flood, or theft.
With busybusy™, you’ll never have to store another paper time card. Our cloud-based app stores your information within a secure server, you can then login on any web browser. Employees are less likely to dispute payroll because we record all timecard changes with a username stamp, so they can’t claim that someone else changed their time card. You, as the employer, can have confidence that the records kept by the busybusy™ app hold up in a court of law.
These headaches can be eliminated just by getting rid of paper time cards. Our time card app was developed by a construction business for construction businesses and works on any Android or iOS mobile device, tablet, and web browser.
We’ve got a Spanish and English version of our app, so every member of your team can start clocking in easily and get to work right away.
"At the time I found out I had cancer I was working 45-50 hours per week on top of being a single mom. The doctors told me that I needed to have chemo a week after I found out and surgery 2 weeks after that. After surgery, the doctors told me that I needed to have chemo once a week for 5 weeks and radiation everyday for 5 weeks. Through this time I didn't have a replacement for my job and had to continue working and maintain, at minimum, billing and payroll. Having busybusy as the time clock for the guys made my job so much easier during this time. My surgery was on Friday and I was able to leave the hospital on Sunday and still have payroll ready on Monday. I was also able to maintain the billing side during chemo every week. I have been on busybusy for over 2 years now and would have a hard time giving it up."Christina
