With so many Timesheet apps out there how do you go about choosing the right one and what other factors should you consider other than focussing purely on price? Sure, everyone likes to get a good deal, but like most things in life ……cheap is not always better.
Once your company has decided to take the plunge and move from paper to mobile Timesheets, you want to ensure that what you are buying is just that – smart Timesheet software that will fully automate the entire process for you, from recording hours worked right down to integrating the data with your existing payroll system. Moreover, you want to choose a system that your field crew will understand and want to use and that provides easy, accessible reporting to the rest of the business.
In keeping with the entire FIELDFIX philosophy of working smarter not harder, our timesheets encourage field crew to capture information as they work. It may help to think of a timesheet as being like the old punch card system. Whenever the crew start on a job they ‘punch in’ using their mobile phone or tablet. In this way the crew can simply clock on to the job as they are setting up. If they forget they can send this clock on later and FIELDFIX will sort out the ordering and calculate the hours. Our clients find the main challenge is changing the culture within their business from paper to mobile, but with support from management and the FIELDFIX team, this change happens quickly.
At FIELDFIX we are passionate about helping businesses utilise information the easy way with practical, no non-sense business reporting. That’s why as well as being user friendly, FIELDFIX Timesheets integrate seamlessly with FIELDFIX Job Management, so that time recorded is automatically reported to the relevant job.
What’s more FIELDFIX Timesheets just got even smarter with greater flexibility and even more detailed reporting features. Our customers wanted to know more about what’s happening at the coalface so we added a “Job Comments” field. We’ve also extended the reporting features for Overtime and Allowances as well as improving the interface making FIELDFIX Timesheets even easier to use. Empower your field crew to help administrate your business from the field!
So although there may be many Timesheet apps out there, be sure to do your homework first. After all, any business change takes time and a certain amount of effort so you want to make sure you get it right the first time.
Send Timesheets from anywhere, anytime with FIELDFIX. Right for your field crew, right for your business.
