Job costing is critical in many businesses, especially in field service or construction. There's the old way - messy hand-written time sheets. There's also the new way - an easy and clean electronic time sheet. 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 time sheets 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 dead 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. Don't let it go to your head.
In 2015 I found ClockShark met my criteria - affordable, intuitive for the end user, receive timesheets on time to meet payroll, and job-costed correctly 98% of the time. I also discovered that the bonus of this software app was it integrated with Quickbooks payroll and has the capability to GPS track.

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. 😄
What a great app! I like the fact that I can see where everyone is when they are punching in and out. I also like that they can switch what job site they are working on so I can get a more accurate labor cost per job. GPS targeting helps keep track of our employees. All around it has helped us out tremendously!

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!
Great timesaving app. We are a residential new home builder and remodeler who always has multiple projects in process at the same time. ClockShark has really improved our time tracking and project costing by allowing our carpenters to accurately record their time for each project.

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. 👍
After implementing ClockShark, keeping track of time became extremely easy plus job costing has become much more accurate. I would recommend to product to any company that wants to make time/job tracking much more simple.

How about some clean and easy job costing reports? Coming right up! Imagine pressing a button and having a report on each Customer or Job at your fingertips, with all the hours and cost codes for any given date range. This week, last week, last month, whatever you want. All the job costing reports you need to keep your business profitable are at your disposal, 24-7. Did we mention the data is real time? You can view yesterday's information today. No need to wait until after payroll runs or the job is done to see what's going on. Guess you'll just have to find something else to worry about.
Before we were having everyone text me their hours at the end of the day and I’d add them to a spreadsheet. It was overwhelming. People forgot, couldn't remember what job they were on. Monday mornings I was spending 2-3 hours just verifying hours before I could even run the payroll. It's so simple now. On top of that for job costing being able to run one report and have all my labor for that job at my fingertips has been invaluable!

If you're using QuickBooks, Sage, Xero or one of our other integration partners you're going to love how easy job costing is. With a few clicks, your time sheets are exported to your accounting or payroll system. No need to re-enter the data. We do all the work for you. You'll get a completed Weekly Time Sheet for each employee, with the corresponding Customer:Job and Service Items populated to match what the Employee clocked in for. It's like magical pixies take your data and sprinkle it everywhere you need it automatically. Except it's not magical pixies. It's magical sharks, which are way cooler.
Just what we needed! We manage landscape projects in different areas. ClockShark helped us to unify all our employee times and works seamlessly with QuickBooks Online. The GPS feature also allows us to be confident that employees are where they are supposed to be.
