Timekeeping For The Other 33%

someone dialing landline phoneSmall business owners may discover a problem when searching for a clock in and clock out timekeeping system for all of their remote employees.   Just about every employee timekeeping system you can find on an internet search is app-based only.  What do you do with the 1/3rd or more of your workforce that doesn’t have a smartphone?

Most timekeeping companies can’t serve that 33%. The technology and infrastructure to offer a call in clock in, clock out system is expensive to build.  If you find a company that does offer a telephony based service, you may pay a premium above and beyond the normal charges.  Those nasty add-on charges…we don’t believe in them.

Chronotek can serve all of your employees with no extra charges. We have built a comprehensive employee timekeeping system over the course of 20 years.  We have an easy and awesome mobile app. Employees can also clock in on their computers. And we offer a call in clock in system. 

The call in method offers some unique advantages if employees can clock in from their job site landline phones. We capture and report the phone number they clock in from so you’ll know if they are physically on the job when clocking in and out.  We also have ways to make sure they can’t clock in with any other phone.  You can rest assured that if your employee clocks in, he’s actually on the job site.  If landline phones are not available, employees can clock in with their cell phones.  There’s a great chance we can get GPS tracks of their locations when clocking in and out.

If you are ready to save 2-6% in payroll dollars, and hours of time tediously going through handwritten time cards, we have a system that covers every one of your employees.  Your search has ended.

New “Any Employee” Schedule

Today we are thrilled to announce a new feature that has been at the top of our “wish list” for some time now.  Many customers had asked us about how best to handle jobs where they didn’t care what employee clocked in, just as long as somebody did.  For many of our customers who manage many different locations, simply ensuring that at least one employee had arrived at a jobsite was critical information.  One example of this type of job might be a pool management company that needs to be sure someone has shown up to open a neighborhood pool for the day, or a security firm that needs to be sure a specific location is covered by a certain time.

We started rolling this feature out on Tuesday, and already we are thrilled with the response from our customers, and the innovative ways they are planning to use it.  Our programming team put in lots of hard work perfecting how this new type of schedule would work with our alert system, so that supervisors can receive up to the minute information regarding which job sites are covered.  Our team also designed the schedules to interface perfectly with our Mobile Chronotek system, allowing supervisors to view this information from any web enabled mobile device.

All in all we are very proud to be able to offer this new feature to our customers.  Our support staff created an excellent email tutorial on using “Any Employee” schedules, and current Chronotek customers should check their inboxes for this information.  As always, any questions or feedback may be left in the comments section below- we’d love to hear how you plan to use this new feature!
