Mobile time-tracking apps work by turning smartphones into little virtual time clocks. Workers log on and ‘punch in’ with a few keystrokes, and later, ‘punch out’ the same way. The mobile time tracking system captures the time, date, and the device’s GPS location at the time of the punch. Because the mobile tracking system is digital, there’s none of the rounding, time theft, and manual errors that plague paper timesheets.
It’s a great solution for landscaping firms and contractors with mobile, scattered work crews. And since many of their workers—and certainly, their foremen—already own smartphones, employers don’t need to buy anything except for the mobile time-tracking system itself.
