We are all doers, we deliver excellence, we simply get things done. At the end of the day we go home knowing that we made a difference, that our work matters.

The
Founding
Story

Written by Dean Mathews

It all started one Saturday evening in December when I was sitting at my kitchen table browsing an accountants forum - apparently I am a pretty big nerd, spending hours reading posts by accountants. I noticed a common theme that the accountants were talking about, they were complaining that they could not find a web based time clock that was accurate and simple. I remember sitting there thinking to myself that I could create that for them.

So literally the next day I started. I did some research on the market and on competitors, then started coding. I also realized that I needed a name, and the name should be reflected in the domain name. After weeks of searching OnTheClock was the name, and the domain was available!

OnTheClock went live in early May of 2004. With a little advertising with AdWords and Yahoo, OnTheClock received some traffic, but no signups.

We received our first signup on May 8, 2004. This was a big day for OnTheClock, our very first trial customer.

Over the first few months a few people per week started signing up and using the time clock system. After a couple years I had a couple hundred companies using OnTheClock. At this point, OTC was not making a profit but this didn't matter, the goal was to solve those accountants' problems and to help small businesses track their employee time. Growth and profit were not even factors.

As the years rolled by, I continued to add new features and upgrade servers to make sure everything was running well for my customers. Around 2009, Ed joined the team part time helping with customer support and billing.

“OnTheClock was started as a passion project”

Today we have a team of 10 people running OnTheClock and serve 10000 small businesses and their employees. Most customers are in the U.S. but have clients from all around the world. We have a team of dedicated individuals to provide product development, design/graphics, marketing, billing and leadership and most importantly, customer support.

Our mission remains the same today, as it was in back 2004, to help small businesses track employee time more easily, more accurately and more efficiently.
