Are all your guys on site at the new build this morning? Is Tom there to oversee the framing, and are they going to finish it today so the drywalling can be started?
It’s tough not knowing every morning which workers are on site and when they got there. In theory you can always drive out to your sites and check on things. But in reality, keeping an eye on several job sites wastes both time and expensive gasoline.
Maybe you think the alternative is soldiering on with your old paper time tracking methods, and the honors system. There’s only so much you can demand from paper, though, or of a spread-out group of employees, not all of whom are honest and reliable—so you look the other way and hope for the best.
A study by The American Payroll Association found that a typical company misses the mark on payroll by hours every month. This means losing money based on erroneous and inaccurate record-keeping.
In fact, those hours can add up to tens of thousands of dollars wasted annually. GPS solutions from ExakTime can help you stop wasting revenue on bad timekeeping.
Keep close tabs on where employees are
Wouldn’t it be easier to predict the length of a project or track your workers’ progress if you knew they were on the job site when they were supposed to be? Managing a team of employees across multiple sites—and remembering who was where 10 days ago come payroll time—can be hard to wrap your head around.
Using the GPS capabilities on our ExakTime Mobile time tracking app, you’ll have access to accurate maps and reports on where your work crews are punching in and out, which makes managing your workers and jobs a lot easier.
GEO fences ensure accuracy
One of the most common causes of inaccurate payroll is employees taking advantage of the lack of supervision at a remote site. They may take extended off-site breaks, or “punch out” long after they’ve left the site.
ExakTime allows you to set up a geofence around the job site and notifies you via our software anytime an employee punches in or out beyond the perimeter you’ve chosen. You’ll quickly learn who is wasting your hard-earned dollars—and they’ll quickly learn that they need to be punctual, and honest.
Make 100% accuracy your company’s goal
Every business, big or small, can benefit from GPS to improve accountability and accuracy in payroll. Not knowing whether employees are on site prevents you from estimating jobs and tracking progress to the best of your ability. Inaccurate or dishonest payroll practices are hurting your bottom line, because each of those “extra” minutes accumulated over the months can add up to losses of thousands of dollars each year.
