With pupil transportation operations expected to do more with less and managers juggling a multitude of tasks, utilizing technology that can accurately track employees’ work hours is one less thing that managers have to devote time to overseeing.

The JobClock Hornet from ExakTime accomplishes this, and it provides additional benefits as well.

The JobClock is a wireless time clock that tracks remote bus drivers in real time. The technology automatically sends digital time records to the payroll offices of drivers being tracked.

“The wireless unit tracks employee hours, locations and job activities and delivers all the data directly to our time tracking software, TimeSummit, running on your payroll clerk’s computer,” explains Casey Powers, vice president of marketing.

Increase payroll recording efficiency
The JobClock Hornet not only relinquishes operations from having to mechanically record time by filling out timecard paperwork by hand, it helps to increase efficiency in several aspects of tracking and recording employee payroll.

“Because the time clock delivers job-site updates every hour, payroll clerks can plan for payroll in advance instead of reacting to it at the end of each week,” Powers says, adding that as a result, payroll clerks don’t have to deal with what can be the frustrating task of collecting paper timecards from drivers.

Because the whole system is automated, clerks also don’t have to manually type driving hours into their computer systems or payroll programs.

“At a higher level, managers and supervisors have detailed knowledge of their bus drivers throughout the workweek and can make on-the-fly adjustments based on the data they receive,” Powers says.

JobClock Hornet stores all payroll data and produces digital timecards and summary reports ready for analysis.

Reduce timecard inaccuracy, costs
Powers says hand-recorded payroll timecards can be inaccurate, which can create additional expenses for operations. The JobClock can protect against this.

“Not only does it track labor wirelessly and automate payroll procedures, it saves a ton of money by accurately tracking time down to the minute,” Powers says.

He points out that the American Payroll Association reports that the average weekly time theft is four hours and five minutes per employee with paper timecards.

Powers adds that users “get peace of mind knowing that their payroll is accurate and on time and that their workforce, both out on the streets and back in the office, is more efficient with their time on the clock.”

Sounds interesting. We use employee time card software from Replicon ( http://www.replicon.com/olp/timecard-software.aspx ). It's really easy to keep track of the various project statuses, the time taken by employees, and several other tasks with this software. We love this software for its innovative features that helps in organizing and scheduling tasks and projects, creating and maintaining reports including the final consolidated report and storing invoices for future references.
