Today’s construction companies rely on digital time tracking to track worker hours. In fact, just over 40% of contractors use cloud-based technology for time tracking. It makes sense considering digital time tracking is far superior to tracking time on paper time cards. Digital time tracking is accurate and efficient and it protects your company from time theft. But not every digital time tracking software is created equal, and many aren’t even built for construction.
ExakTime pioneered in-the-field time tracking, and we still lead the pack. Every month we implement many customers on ExakTime that tried and were ultimately disappointed by another solution.
Here are just three of the reasons construction companies and contractors trade up to ExakTime:
- ExakTime was designed for construction, so it works like a dream in the field and in the office.
- Our US-based customer support team is responsive, prompt and knowledgeable.
- The intuitive back-end is easy for office staff and owners to learn and navigate.
ExakTime is Designed for Construction
A construction-first approach means ease of use and field-worthy features because when you’re out on the job site you don’t have the time to mess around with apps that aren’t easy to use. That’s why we designed ExakTime to be simple and intuitive. It works so well that others copy our innovations. Case in point: The green (clock-in) and red (clock-out) layout that we originated is now industry standard.
But there’s more to ExakTime than our clock-in/clock-out interface. Behind the scenes are rich construction-specific features like FaceFront for photo ID capture and GPS tracking and Geofencing, which help eliminate time theft and buddy punching which ensure your employees are actually where they are when they say they are. You can even schedule worker shifts, input field notes and track equipment through the app.
And if a mobile app doesn’t work for certain job sites or employees ExakTime has options. We offer rugged time clocks and kiosk functionality. Or the crew lead or supervisor can simply sign people or crews in and out on the app.
ExakTime is strongly embedded in the construction landscape. We are constantly talking to our customers about what they need and want so we can enhance our product. We have our finger on the pulse of the industry with active relationships with numerous construction associations. And no one has a stronger partner ecosystem to ensure our customers get the advantages of solid, proven integrations that make their lives easier.

ExakTime’s approach to customer support is multi-tiered. It starts with Support Central, our online self-service help center that offers information on everything from getting started with ExakTime to running reports.

The ExakTime Difference
The ExakTime system lets you track your crews and job sites in real-time, ensuring your team is on schedule and giving you the information you need to ensure you stay on track. Our intuitive system and outstanding customer service deliver value to your business.
Here are some key advantages of our system:
- Save Time and Money: With ExakTime, you no longer need to track down employees for timecards. When you have employees spread out across job sites, ensuring everyone has submitted their paper timecards is difficult. Having employees clock in and out with a rugged time clock or on our app is much more efficient. Plus, our time-tracking software eliminates the need for extra manual processing and spreadsheets. With this work cut out, you can reduce the time spent running payroll and free up your staff.
- Increase Accuracy: Because paper timecards require manual entry, a significant amount of data entry is required between running reports and tracking down missing timecards. With our system, you eliminate this tedious work. Plus, you can avoid payroll disputes since employees enter their time each day and approve their timecards in the app. You’ll no longer be stuck dealing with mistakes, errors, or omissions.
- Scalability: The ExakTime system is perfect for small and mid-sized construction companies looking to save time and resources. Using our system, your team can track hours accurately and timely to avoid compliance headaches. Plus, we allow for easy integration with your enterprise software stack.
If you’re currently using another web-based time tracking solution, trading up to ExakTime is simple…and it’s quick. In fact, most companies take just a single payroll cycle—one week—to make the change, and our implementation experts are here to help.
Don’t struggle through one more payroll with a solution that wasn’t designed for construction, doesn’t offer you support when you need it and it’s easy to use. Trade up to ExakTime.
