Time Tracking Accessibility & Accuracy
Jonathan operates Wild Land Tree Care, located in Lancaster, Ohio. The business offers full-service tree care and has been around since 2016. Wild Land Tree Care is a home-based business with one location, and they travel to various client homes to take care of their tree care needs. The focus is to continue the expansion of his crews and overall company growth.
Jonathan started by using a manual spreadsheet.Jonathan knew that if he wanted to expand his crews and continue growing his business he was going to need to move to something that would record hours without relying on memory.
Timesheet adjustments were becoming cumbersome and a drain on time. Jonathan needed a system that would allow him to quickly adjust and correct employee time when they forget to enter their hours. He was finding that even with just one employee remembering the client and the hours worked for each was a headache.
Traveling to clients' homes to complete tree removal and similar services is a significant part of the job. Finding a time tracking solution with a mobile app that is easily accessible for employees to use when clocking in and out at clients homes was incredibly important.
“I started out using just a spreadsheet, and I was entering hours manually. Sometimes I would forget to add the time worked, and it became a headache when trying to track the number of hours that employees were spending on the job.”
After three attempts at implementing a time tracking solution, Jonathan's search was over when the not "tech-savvy" crew was able to download and quickly adopt the mobile app. With a simple and easy-to-understand interface, the teams could clock in and out on the job with no issue. Ditching the spreadsheets has saved time reviewing and sending timesheets to an accountant to process. " I just log in, review hours, and email them directly to my accountant," Jonathan says. The most significant time-saver is the ability to go into timesheets and quickly correct any errors in the palm of your hand. The price point is perfect, especially with a pay per person model. Removing and adding new crew members is no hassle.
