Job costing is critical in many businesses, especially in field service or construction. There’s the old way - messy hand-written timesheets. There’s also the new way - an easy and clean electronic timesheet. The new way means no more figuring out sloppy hand-written Job or Labor Codes. You can stop stressing when you process payroll because your timesheets will be accurately coded to the Job and Labor Cost Code. With the old way, getting your time data and making it accurate takes hours. With the new way, it takes less than half the time and is deadly accurate.
Accurate job costing requires more than just knowing when people worked. You also need to know what they were doing and who they were doing it for. With ClockShark employees select the Job and Task (aka Labor Cost Code) when they clock in. It only takes four quick taps on the mobile app, and they're clocked in. It couldn't be easier. That's the power of mobile time tracking.
If you thought clocking in with Jobs and Tasks was easy, you'll love Switching. Employees can Switch between Jobs and Tasks without clocking out. Why do more than you have to? With the “Switch” button, employees can select a new Job or Task with only a few taps and start tracking time against the new cost codes. No need to clock out first. That would be hard, and everything in ClockShark is easy.
Everyone hates endlessly scrolling on a smartphone, even us. But if you've got a lot going on, you could have longs lists of Jobs (Customers) or Tasks (Labor Cost Codes). Not to worry. At the top of each list in the app is a search field. As you start typing it hides anything in the list that doesn't match. Usually, with only a few characters typed in, you can find what you're looking for in seconds. Even super long lists can't slow you down!
To make it easy for employees to choose the correct Job (Customer) or Task (Labor Cost Code) when clocking in, you can limit which Jobs or Tasks each employee is able to see. If you have a lot of Jobs or Tasks that can really speed up the process of clocking in. You can also assign specific Tasks to a Job so that picking from the correct set of Tasks for that Job is easy. Just another example of how job costing is made easy. Job costing superpowers, here we come.
