Finding the best time clock app for your small business can be a challenge. There are many options to choose from so how do you know which one is best for your business?

When evaluating your options, be sure to look at the app’s pricing model as well as its features. You may not need all the fancy options that an app is advertising and instead decide to go with a simpler, more affordable solution. You might also find that your employees own a smartphone (iPhone or Android) but they’re not tech-savvy, so the time it takes to get them on board and familiarized with the system might be a factor in deciding which app to use.
