The Software Must Accurately Track Employee Hours
A report from Software Advice 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 tracking your team's hours is to accurately track the time. The system should be accurate concerning the clock in and out times, it should also be accurate when generating reports for payroll.
Make Sure It Has The Options You Need
Yes, of course you need a basic clock in clock out system for your staff. However there are several other features you may also take advantage of. Many small businesses 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 clock in/out location controls for employees). Shift Scheduling is also something that many people want and use, make sure that is available.
The ability to export your timesheets to 3rd party systems like Intuit Payroll as also sought after.

Security And Employee Location Control Are A Must
You will want to verify that employees are at work when clocking in and out. There is a fear when using an online system that employees can simply punch wherever they want, this is not the case.

This can be accomplished using a combination of geo-location(GPS), IP restrictions, fingerprint(biometric) readers and device authorization settings.

Reliability Is A Requirement
Extreme uptime is one characteristic that all employee time tracking systems should demonstrate and should always be striving for 100% uptime. The system should use technologies such geographically separate data centers and server mirroring make sure that you and your staff can access the system anytime at anywhere. Internet reliability is also a major concern, however there are some recent statistics which show that online systems are actually more reliable than conventional installed software

Pamela Gardner said...
I had been looking for a convenient way to have my employees across states to keep up with their time and for me to gather it in one place. This program is very convenient and efficient if you have employees in other locations. I would highly recommend this product.
Simple and comprehensive
This offers everything that my employees, my accountant any I need. Its simple interface and web-based platform make it the perfect solution for my practice.
Ontheclock has really helped us with accountability in our organization and made the payroll process easier. This app is easy to use and my staff likes it. The only problem we have is there are too many steps to the clock in and clock out process. They get in a hurry and forget to finish and it doesnt capture their clicks. A quick phone call to the administrator fixes it so its not a huge issue. I recommend ontheclock frequently.
We have been using On The Clock for several years now. This is a great system prior to using this our HR manager was struggling with calculation of time for staff. This system is user friendly and efficient. I like the ability to be able to call their customer services and talk with an actual person. They have been able to resolve any questions that I have had within the same call. I like the way it track overtime, holiday pay, etc.
