Concrete or fiberglass? Saltwater or fresh? Annual or perennial? Mulch or gravel? When it comes to making the perfect project for clients, there are lots of options. When it comes to how you track time, however, there is really one best choice for most pool and landscaping companies, ClockShark. Your employees will be able to track time from the field using our free mobile apps. Job and location data is included with each time punch so you know where everyone is and what they’re working on in real time. Keep tabs on project costs and run payroll with our easy to use reporting tools, and keep everything moving with the built in employee scheduling. You handle delivering the best project you can to your clients. We’ve got the time tracking covered.
Paper timesheets require employees to remember start and end times at the end of the shift. Not only is this forgetfulness a pain, it leads to inaccurate times. Times are guessed, hours are rounded up and your payroll costs and hassles go through the roof. Mobile time tracking solves all these problems.
ClockShark’s free IOS and Android employee time tracking apps let you bring the time clock to the work site. Employees can clock in/clock out, take breaks, switch between jobs and tasks all from their smartphones. It’s faster, easier and more accurate than using paper timesheets. It works so well, over 1,000,000 hours were tracked last week by landscaping and pool companies like yours!
We manage landscape projects in different areas. ClockShark helped us to unify all our employee times and worked seamlessly with QuickBooks Online. The GPS feature also allows us to be confident that employees are where they are supposed to be.

With the GPS Time Clock Apps, every time punch has a location attached so you can see where everyone is when they clock in and out. This promotes accountability by keeping clock punches on the job site and not from down the street on the way in or out. Our customers save between 2-8% in payroll costs* just by stopping early clock-ins and late clock-outs. Employees can see their timesheet right from their phone so they know how much time they’ve put in and how much they have left to go. Giving employees this information helps control overtime hours and keeps everything fair.
Exactly what I need as a biz owner! These guys are quick to respond to any question. It has saved the business lots of money and time. I'm so thankful.

Employee scheduling in a landscaping or pool business can be a time-consuming chore. It seems like everyone is always confused about their schedule. Not anymore! You’ll create schedules by dragging and dropping jobs or employees onto the calendar in your web dashboard. Your employees will see the schedule on their phone in the ClockShark mobile app. Anything you change is immediately visible to your workers. You can even send notifications right to employees’ phones whenever the schedule changes. Now you won’t have to stay until 6 pm sending out schedules and everyone will know where they need to be. Imagine that!
Great product! This product was exactly what I was looking for in a scheduling software for my business.

Tracking costs to specific jobs is important for many landscaping and pool businesses. Every time punch in ClockShark comes with job, task (aka cost code) and location information. This data gives you super accurate job costing. ClockShark’s time reporting tools allow you to see exactly how much time was spent on each job and task in just a few clicks. You can view, print or export any report. If you’re using QuickBooks, Sage, Xero or one of our other integration partners you’ll benefit from built in data tranfser capabilities.
ClockShark saves us time and money. Our employees were notorious for inaccurate time cards. ClockShark made it easy. We also have records and can also verify hour on projects if customer disputes billable hours.

Mobile time tracking with ClockShark doesn’t require expensive equipment or complicated set ups. You’ll set up and run things from any computer with a web browser. All your employees need is the smartphone they have in their pocket.
All the time data is stored in the cloud, so if you drop your phone in a pool you don’t lose any information. Replace the phone, download the app again and you're right where you left off. Got someone without a smartphone? No problem. CrewClock™ lets supervisors or foreman punch the clock for their teams.
We have been using ClockShark since February. With our fast pass business and our 18 Project Managers and Technicians we are able to streamline our Invoicing to clients. With ClockShark we are able to upload all our time into QuickBooks in a matter of minutes, freeing up valuable time of data entry for more important things. Our Project Managers and Technicians time is live, we are able to pinpoint where they are at any given time. We often use reports to track client project status. This software is user friendly and I would recommend to anyone trying to track projects in the field.
