Do You Know Where Your Employees Are? – Location Based Time Tracking
It’s 9:30AM – Do You Know Where Your Employees Are? – Location Based Time Tracking
Whether you’re managing a team of employees in the office or have a workforce of remote employees scattered all over the globe, it’s important to know who is doing what and when.
One of the biggest complaints we hear from business owners is that they don’t always know who is in the office, on the job site, or at a client meeting. With so much going on in their business, they are looking for a simple way to easily understand which employees showed up to work today, where are they working from, were they on time, and are they where they’re supposed to be.
Why Businesses Need to Know When and Where Their Employees Are At
Knowing where your employees are using location based time tracking apps like Timeero is a relatively new concept. In the old days, you knew where all of your employees were at—in your office. But now, as new industries open up and your clientele and projects show up all over town, there’s a real need to understand where all of the moving pieces are at.
Using a GPS time tracking app like Timeero can help employees feel a sense of accountability. When they know that their boss is going to know whether they showed up on time and to the correct location, there’s an added level of sense of responsibility. The employee tends to strive for punctuality when they know someone above them will know when they’re not.
How GPS Time Tracking Translates Into Cost Savings
GPS time tracking apps for employees is not just about monitoring employees every move. Most companies want their employees to have a certain level of freedom in when and where they choose to engage with a project, but the accountability of properly documenting every hour that is spent on a job site or otherwise ends up translating into more accurate time sheets.
It’s widely known in many industries that employees are often “fudging” their time cards by up to 4 hours every single week. Sometimes this is intentional, often it’s just the result of a bad time tracking system.
Utilizing a simple app like Timeero, employees are better able to track each hour that they spend working on a project and a GPS location and time stamp assures you that they are putting in the time where it counts.
Warming Employees to the Concept of Location Based Time Tracking
The biggest pushback that we get from business owners when it comes to shifting the way they are thinking about time tracking and payroll is actually implementing the new system.
Fortunately, Timeero makes it very easy to get all of your employees set up on a simple, easy to use time tracking app and system. You simply enter each employee email into the system and they will receive download instructions for installing Timeero on the phone or mobile device of their choice.
Once the app is installed, they merely have to open it whenever they show up to a job site and clock-in with one click. When they are finished they clock-out. Notes can be added to provide context for what they were working on or which client project the hours are in reference to.
You get the added confidence of knowing that they were doing what you hired them to do because you can clearly see the GPS location from which they clocked in.
Using Timeero is simple and easy to setup. Our customer care center is standing by to help you and your team successfully transition to a time tracking app and payroll system that saves you money and removes all of the headaches from your payroll system.
