How ClockShark’s Construction Time Tracking WorksConstruction Time Tracking Solution ClockShark

ClockShark’s time tracking system has two parts, a website for administrative and worker access plus downloadable apps that are installed on workers’ (and administrators’) smartphones or tablets. Workers clock in and out from the smartphone apps easily just by pressing a button. Your worker brings up the ClockShark app, presses the Clock In button, selects a job site, selects a cost code, and is now clocked in. The app records the GPS location of the worker. The info for the punch is sent in near-real time to the website, where administrators (AKA: you!) can easily view it as well as edit it. When a worker needs to clock out or switch jobs or cost codes, they simply click a button on the ClockShark app, and it’s recorded in real-time.

The most powerful construction time tracking abilities in ClockShark come from the administrative website. There you can view all of the times your workers have punched for any date range (often a payroll period). You can easily see the location of the worker when they punched in or out. You can also easily edit any incorrect or incomplete times. You can easily view the location of each punch on a convenient map view.

When it’s time to run payroll, simply print an easy report that shows total hours worked for each employee. You can then give this report to your payroll company, or export the time into Quickbooks if you run payroll in-house. You can also run reports that show job cost info and hours worked per job site. These reports are helpful in making decisions about your job sites.
