Your phone rings in the early morning before you’ve turned on your Keurig. It’s an angry client firing you because his building wasn’t cleaned last night. Again! You pinch yourself. Maybe it’s a bad dream. Unfortunately not and definitely not a great way to start a day, especially before coffee. This is a true story for a janitorial company owner we spoke to recently. He used handwritten timesheets and had no way of monitoring in real time if his employees were a no-show at his sites. We wish he’d contacted us sooner. He would still have a happy customer.

Small 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? The answer is a telephone clock in system.
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 telephone clock in system, 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 telephone clock in 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.

Do you know how long it takes to do your jobs? As the business owner, your first job is to know how long it takes to do any particular job. The janitorial industry is a time/motion line of work; meaning the work to be done can be measured in a specific time. For instance, it takes a specified length of time to vacuum a specified area of carpet.
Some business owners actually do the jobs initially to determine how long it takes. Of course there are other factors that can make those numbers vary, but for the most part, there are good efficiency numbers that have been derived from studies of labor and materials in the cleaning business. So once you land the job you need a way to make sure the employees you put on that job actually put in the time it takes to do the job right. A telephone timekeeping system that allows you to track jobs as well as employees can be useful for these job costing numbers. Your employees clock into a job and you can see the amount of time spent on that job each month. It is a great way to determine if your job costing numbers were right.
Tell prospective customers that you manage your employees with a telephone timekeeping system.
