Time tracking

Time tracking

Time tracking is a blanket term for a number of methods companies use to record their employees’ billable hours and time worked. In the past, employee time tracking was largely handled manually with time cards and punch clocks, or via computer spreadsheets. Those methods have become less feasible in an era when businesses deal with workforces operating in multiple locations, earning varying hourly rates, and performing a wide range of tasks. Today, more and more employers have begun shifting to more technologically advanced time-tracking software.

A reliable time tracking tool provides employees with an easy way to enter their work hours, for managers to approve hours, and for payroll team members to generate reports in real time. By automating these functions, both large and small businesses can drastically reduce the amount of time spent on day-to-day tasks while eliminating human errors that occur when you track your working hours by hand.

Mobile time tracking apps that allow your employees to add time, make schedule changes, and request time off from wherever they are. There are a number of reliable, easy to use time tracker apps available for iOS and Android that sync easily with desktop apps, creating a hassle-free time tracking experience both in and out of the office.
