Pinpoint the precise whereabouts of your team using a time clock app with GPS

GPS time clock allows you to view the locations of each team member in real-time, during work hours. By using data from your crew’s smartphone, you will get updates on the locations of your team on an easy-to-read map.

Ensure payroll accuracy with GPS-verified timesheets

Ensuring accurate payroll requires verifying workers' presence at job sites during their recorded work hours. ClockShark’s GPS tracking attaches a marker to every clock-in and out event, displaying your crews’ specific locations on a simple map so you can confidently approve their timesheets.

GPS Time Clock

View a “breadcrumb” trail of worker’s travel and job site visits

ClockShark’s location tracking goes beyond simply verifying the crew's presence at job sites. It also provides a detailed record of their movements throughout the workday, creating a visual representation of their activity. The "breadcrumb trail" marks a worker's location every 10-15 minutes, generating a constantly updated map of their route.

GPS Time Clock

Gain real-time visibility of your field workforce

Managing a dispersed field workforce can be challenging without real-time visibility into your crew's activity. ClockShark's "Who's Working Now" feature addresses this by providing a single map that displays the current location of every clocked-in worker. This dynamic map updates automatically throughout the day, ensuring you have the most up-to-date information about your team's whereabouts.

GPS Time Clock

Streamline time tracking with geofenced reminders

Managing timekeeping can be a tedious and error-prone task, especially for field workers who may forget to clock in or out. ClockShark's GPS time clock eliminates this hassle by automatically prompting your field crew to clock in and out when they enter or leave a geofenced job site.

Record and retain transparent proof of work for every job

Maintaining proof of all work performed is crucial. Whether your customers request proof of work for invoicing purposes or insurance companies conduct payroll audits, having accurate and transparent records is essential. With ClockShark’s location tracking, businesses can eliminate guesswork and provide a transparent, verifiable record of work completion. You will know who worked which job, at what time and location, and for how many hours.

GPS Time Clock

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

We choose ClockShark because of the GPS tracking; employees don't get paid if not on the clock and if they are on the clock we can tell exactly where they are and where they went.
I like the GPS function so that our supervisors can keep track of where and when employees are clocking in and out from their shifts. This feature has helped us in solving more time theft instances than I'm happy to admit.
Hospital & Health Care
This software ticked all the boxes I was looking for: time tracking with GPS location, GPS tracking while clocked in, a mobile app, crew clock-in, and kiosk ability, a web dashboard that's admin-friendly and easy to use, and the ability for me to reset passwords & fix access in-house instead of having to have my employee contact customer service on their own to do it.

How does ClockShark's GPS time clock work?


Your worker downloads the ClockShark app and creates an account using their company credentials.

Clock-in and location tracking

Your crew member clocks in through the app, selecting the job they'll be working on. The app tracks their location every 10-15 minutes throughout the workday.

Clock-out or task switch

When finishing work or switching tasks, your worker clocks out or selects a new task. The app records their final location and timestamps for the event.

Real-time data

The app stores all the timekeeping data. You can view and manage your teams’ timesheets and approve or reject them.

Seamless payroll

Timesheet data gets exported to the employer's payroll system, streamlining payroll processing.

FAQ about the ClockShark’s GPS Time Clock

Does the GPS work offline?

Yes, ClockShark’s GPS time-tracking app will work when workers travel outside of cellular coverage. They can even clock in and out without cell service, and the recorded times will be synced up with your account when an internet connection is restored. The GPS tracking function will also continue working even without cell coverage since it relies on GPS satellites and not the cellular network.

Can the GPS time clock app track the location of workers when they’re off the clock?

No. The GPS tracking ONLY tracks locations when workers are clocked in. It cannot and will NEVER track workers after they’re off the clock. Respect for workers' privacy is built into the ClockShark mobile app.

How accurate is the location tracking?

ClockShark’s GPS is as accurate as the user’s mobile device. Whenever a user clocks in or out, and when GPS tracking is enabled, a pin is created on a map showing the detected location with a circle around it. That circle displays the accuracy level of that particular location as reported by the GPS sensor on the mobile device. The actual location of the device could have been anywhere inside that circle. The smaller the circle, the more accurate the GPS tracking reading was.

Will ClockShark’s GPS drain the batteries of crews’ mobile devices?

No. ClockShark is designed to use minimal battery life, so the app should take no more than 15-25% of battery life throughout an 8-hour shift, even with all GPS tracking features enabled.

Is ClockShark's GPS time clock secure?

Yes, ClockShark's GPS tracker is secure. All data is encrypted in transit and at rest. ClockShark also complies with all applicable data privacy laws. Learn more about our privacy policy here.

Does ClockShark's GPS tracking comply with labor laws?

Yes, ClockShark's GPS time clock complies with all applicable labor laws. The app automatically records breaks and meal periods, and it can be configured to comply with specific state and local laws.

How can I use ClockShark's GPS time clock for job costs?

ClockShark's GPS tracking for small businesses can be used to track your crew’s locations and link them to specific jobs. This allows you to track project expenses with precision.

How does ClockShark's GPS time clock work?

Your crews can download the ClockShark GPS time clock app onto their smartphones. To clock in, your team simply opens the app and taps the "Clock In" button. The app will automatically record their location and timestamp. To clock out, they tap the "Clock Out" button. The app will again record their location and timestamp. Throughout the workday, the app will periodically track your team’s location and record timestamps. This data is used to create a "breadcrumb" trail of a worker’s movements.
