As it increases in popularity, the use of GPS geofencing technology is on the rise in a variety of different sectors as company leaders come up with new ways to use it. Utilizing GPS on any smartphone, a geographical boundary is set up by a company and when the device enters (or exits), a geofence alert is issued. Among many other things, businesses are using geofencing to connect with customers, safeguard valuable assets, improve workplace management and as an app to track employees.
Rock-solid time tracking Geofencing can benefit both you and your employees with its ability to track employee time, location and wages. With an employee punch clock app, it’s easy to set up a geofence around a work site that notifies you and your workers when they enter and exit the site.
Using Timesheet Mobile, the virtual perimeter can be customized so that employees can be alerted to punch in or out of a shift once they are near the designated geofenced area – and also notify managers if there was any geofence violation.
This helps companies rely less on manual processes for timesheet logs, and gives on-the-go workers accountability and peace of mind that their hours are being accurately captured. Because both sides have undisputable evidence of the hours worked, there are bound to be fewer disagreements over hours and wages, leading to a better relationship between employer and employees. That was the case with Jericho Home Improvements, a leading remodeling company in Kansas City that adopted Timesheet Mobile’s GPS geofencing technology to keep better track of their workers.
