Clock In and Clock Out

A time clock allows your employees to track when they start and stop working each day. There are a few types of time clocks. A traditional time clock involves inserting a card or sheet of paper into a system that stamps the date and time. Web-based time clocks use digital time tracking to record the hours worked. Biometric time clocks use employees’ physical characteristics, like a fingerprint, to identify them and digitally record the times they clock in and out. No matter which type of time clock your business uses, clocking in and out is an essential function of each and allows you and your employees to keep track of work time.

GPS Time Tracking

Because Chronotek is a web-based time clock, it can use GPS timestamps to track employee hours. This location tracking feature allows you the peace of mind of knowing your employees are located at the job site. When combined with supervisor notifications, a job will never go unstaffed again!

Travel Time Calculator

If your employees travel on the clock, having a time clock that automatically calculates travel time is necessary. Chronotek is fully integrated with Google Maps™ to calculate the most accurate mileage maps possible. This eliminates the hours of paperwork that often comes with paying employees for travel time.


Web-based time clocks like Chronotek offer a unique advantage over other means of time tracking: communication. Since Chronotek can be accessed through a phone call, mobile app, or other web-enabled devices, it’s easy for supervisors and their teams to stay in touch throughout the workday. Communication is possible through a voice messaging system or the app and can even be made a required listen or read before employees begin or end their shifts.

Scheduling Employees

Chronotek goes beyond merely tracking time by allowing you to create and manage employee work schedules through the supervisor tools. Create and assign schedules with ease by utilizing floater schedules or creating work schedules for individual employees.

Attendance At-A-Glance

Always know who, what, when, and where with Chronotek’s live attendance dashboard. Unlike other time tracking methods, Chronotek can provide real-time updates about who is on the job and who is not with our web-based service.

Time Card Reports

Time card reporting can become one of the most time-consuming parts of running a business. Pulling timesheets for and processing payroll is a time-sucker. Because Chronotek automatically generates time cards, it only takes a few mouse clicks to churn out reports for timesheets, payroll, and job costing.
