While speaking with customers who currently use a manual time-clocking service, we often hear the comment ’It’s a good service but not a great service.’ The customers usually zero in on these 3 problems:
- People clocking in from the wrong place
- People clocking in and leaving
- People just plain forgetting to use the App to manually clock-in and clock-out
We believe automatic time-clocking with geofencing around job sites and sensor data (GPS, Wifi, BLE etc.) from the employee’s smartphone may provide a better, error-proof alternative to address this use case. Systems that make use of physical location-awareness combined with powerful phone sensors can provide true zero-touch app experience for the field employees while maintaining solid audit records of attendance for payroll processing.
