Tyler Technologies unveils time tracking app

Posted on July 22, 2013

DALLAS — Tyler Technologies Inc. debuted its Tyler eTimekeeper solution, an application used via a web browser and with mobile devices designed to let public sector employees access time and attendance tracking remotely.

Tyler eTimekeeper provides employees and supervisors an efficient and accurate method of tracking hours worked without the burden of using a physical time clock, company officials said. Supervisors can access various management functions from the eTimekeeper dashboard to facilitate personnel management, configuration and data reporting. A simple clock in/clock out format is designed to be easy to use, and employees may create an honor punch (a retroactive punch with a valid reason), view history and comments, and receive notifications via the web.

Employees can also select jobs from a drop down list, such as when a bus driver needs to distinguish between time spent transporting students to and from school versus transporting them on field trips.

Security is assured, according to company officials, because eTimekeeper is accessed via a safe and secure login that requires a user name and password for each employee.
