myGeoTracking Mobile App allows users to record time & attendance within Geofenced job sites.  The app also supports GPS-tagged QR Codes for time-clocking inside bigger indoor venues alongwith workforce accountability tracking and automation

The Company’s operations managers can use various web tools to create QR codes for their job site properties (or building floors). These QR codes can then be attached to the properties and scanned by security personnel to create attendance records during their daily rounds.  Here are a few resources on how to generate a QR code:

Conclusion
Combining Geofencing with QR code provides the most effective, cost-efficient solution for field personnel management & time-clocking. Given the savings associated with such an automation system (thousands of dollars per year per employee), it is worth the time of an Operations manager to review and pilot a solution from known vendors. The technology pays for itself in a matter of months.
