Don't take our word for it. See what our customers say.

"We can always refer back to the locations on the timesheets and know exactly what jobs were done and how long our employees spent there. It’s helpful to use with our customers who aren't present in the home when work is being done. It makes them feel more comfortable when we can provide evidence of how long the workers were there and what was being done. It’s professional."

Time-tracking app

Are you tired of chasing down paper timesheets and worrying about inaccurate time data?

ClockShark is a time-tracking solution for small businesses that takes the hassle out of payroll. You get real-time data on your team's time, so you can always be sure that you're paying them accurately.

ClockShark is easy to use for both employees and crew. Your team can clock in and out right from the jobsite using the mobile app, and employers can view timesheets in real-time from the web app.

ClockShark also helps you eliminate paper timesheets, which can be a major hassle for small businesses. With ClockShark, your timesheets are always accurate and up-to-date.

The software also allows your crew to clock in and out of work by simply having their faces scanned by the app or by a kiosk. The biometric feature is designed to improve the accuracy of time tracking and to prevent buddy punching, which is when one employee clocks in or out for another crew member.

Location tracking

For small businesses, every minute counts.

ClockShark's GPS tracking can help you save time and money by giving you real-time visibility into your team's location and productivity. With ClockShark, you can see the real-time location of your team members on a map. This makes it easy to dispatch them to jobs efficiently and to keep track of their progress.

The Who's Working Now feature shows you which team members are available and closest to each job. This allows you to dispatch the right person to the job every time, helping you reduce response times and improve customer satisfaction.

With the geofencing feature, businesses can create virtual boundaries around their job sites or other areas. When an employee enters or leaves a geofenced area, ClockShark automatically starts or stops their time tracking. This helps businesses ensure that their employees are only tracking time when they are working on authorized jobs.


As a small business owner, you have a lot on your plate. You don't have time to waste on manual scheduling tasks.

ClockShark's scheduling feature can help you save time and automate your scheduling process, so you can focus on more important things.

ClockShark's scheduling feature is easy to use, even for non-tech-savvy users. You can create and assign jobs to your technicians with just a few clicks. It will automatically notify your team of any changes to the schedule. This means that your team always knows when and where they need to be.

ClockShark takes into account your technicians' availability when creating the schedule. This means that you can be sure that you're always assigning jobs to the right people. It is flexible enough to accommodate even the most complex schedules. You can easily make changes to the schedule on the fly, as needed.

Job management

Keeping your projects organized is essential for success, but it can be a challenge for small businesses.

ClockShark's job management feature gives you a single hub to track all job details, so you can keep projects moving forward and your entire team informed.

With ClockShark, you can create and track projects, assign tasks to crew members, and monitor progress. This can help businesses stay on track and complete projects on time and within budget.

Quotes, invoices, and payments

Cash flow is the lifeblood of any business, but it can be especially challenging for small businesses. That's why it's important to have a software solution in place that can help you win more jobs and get paid faster.

With ClockShark's quoting software, you can create professional quotes within minutes. You can easily add customer information, job details, and pricing. ClockShark will automatically calculate labor costs and other expenses, so you can be confident that you're quoting your jobs accurately.

Once the job is complete, you can easily create and send invoices to your customers. You can customize your invoices with your company logo and branding. ClockShark even makes it easy to accept online payments, so you can get paid faster.
