Employee time tracking is an essential task for any small business and finding the best app can help you reduce wasted hours and bring labor cost down. A report by Pew Research Center found that 64% of American adults own a smartphone of some kind, up from 35% in the spring of 2011 and smartphone ownership is especially high among younger Americans. One of the benefits of the rise of smartphone ownership is enabling small business owners to run their business from anywhere, they are no longer tied to the office or need to be at each job location to monitor progress.

 

To find the right time attendance software you need to evaluate many factors, example: benefits, cost, ability to work on any device, is it easy to use? since not every employee in your organization is tech savvy you need to make sure it’s simple to use. One of the challenges facing small business owners like landscape, health care, catering, or construction companies is can they trust if employees showed up at the correct location when they clocked in? a good time attendance application can solve this by capturing the GPS of the location without infringing on the employee’s privacy.

 

To help you with the task of picking the right mobile time clock app for your business, we compiled a list of best iOS time tracking apps to choose from, as a disclaimer, we included ezClocker our software in the list but gave many other options based on what they have to offer so you can choose the one that best fits your needs.
