6 Things A Punch Clock Needs
Number 1It Must Be Easy For Everyone (Employees And Employers)

When setting up your employee punch clock, it should be super simple to configure and should take minutes not hours. The days of messy software installations and problems during setup are dead. Modern web based employee time clocks allow near instant setup and implementation. Once running, daily operations such as managing employees, adjusting time cards and running payroll should take minutes(preferably seconds). Being online, you can access your account from any device at work, home or on the road.

Number 2It Must Be Accurate

A report using data from APA(American Payroll Association) shows up to 15% of gross payroll is stolen(time theft / buddy punching) or miscalculated. One of the primary goals when implementing an employee time clock is to accurately track time. The system should be accurate concerning the punch in / punch out times, it should also be accurate when generating reports for payroll.

Worried about employees cheating the system? You should be, read on...

Number 3It Must Be Secure

You want to verify that employees are at work when clocking in and out. There is a fear when using an online punch clock that employees can simply punch in/out wherever the want, this is not the case. In modern time tracking apps, punch location control is accomplished using geo-location(GPS), IP restrictions, fingerprint(biometric) readers and device authorization.

What is the internet goes down? Can I access the time clock?

Number 4It Must Be Reliable

Extreme uptime is one characteristic that all time tracking systems should demonstrate and should always be working for 100% uptime. The system should use technologies such geographically separate data centers and server mirroring make sure that you can access the system anytime and anywhere. Internet reliability is also a major concern, however there are some recent statistics which show that an online punch clock app is more reliable than an electronic or computer based system.

Number 5It Must Be Trusted

The Yale School Of Management shows that the overwhelming majority of reviews are real and accurate, Do you want to start using a system, possibly for weeks only to find out that it is not what was advertised? When going to a new restaurant, we look at the reviews right? You should always check the reviews of a new time clock service before using it.

Number 6It Must Have The Options You Need

Yes, you need a time clock for your employees to punch in and out. Many companies need PTO(paid time off) tracking and approval, experts agree it is best done at the punch clock level. Phone Apps also make life easier for managers and employees(yes there are punch location controls for employees). Scheduling is also something that many people want and use, make sure that is available.

I appreciate how On The clock has made payroll a much easier and faster process. The employees like the simplicity of clocking in and out with their phone as well as being able to know how many hours they have with the time card summary at their fingertips.
Great App for small business
Mark Hoerman said...
We are a new (2 year old) company. Instead of the punch clock system, I wanted something online where I could monitor it. I looked at several and had a fellow franchisee tell me about ontheclock.com. I looked it over on Youtube to see how it works and started it at our business. It is cheap for me and my 15 employees and works wonderful!! Money is tight when you start up a business and this is the best $20 a month you will ever spend! 5 stars!!
Easy to use
