3 Benefits of Time Clock Apps

If managers are not using time clock apps, then they often rely on outdated time card punching machines, or manual writing in off hours on paper time cards. The problem with using these methods is that they are time consuming, and often unreliable. A good Time Clock App is simply a much better tool for tracking employee work hours. Here are some of the top benefits of using time clock apps.

1. Faster

With time clock apps, employees need simply just turn on the app and then the time can start automatically being tracked. The filling out of paper time cards is not necessary. Everything can be done right through the app. At the end of the pay period, the manager can simply look at the time tracking app and automatically see how much he or she owes to the employee.


2. More Accurate

It is easy to make mistakes if paper time cards or time card punching machines are being used. Time tracking apps store all data electronically. This makes it more accurate, and can cut back on manager and employee error. This can help to make your payment process much more smooth.

3. Safer

Sometimes, employees try to game the system by clocking in their buddies, or by otherwise trying to make it appear that they are working when they are actually not. With an employee time clock app such as the Ximble app, it is actually possible to require employees to have their photo taken when they clock in for work. This can help to increase the security surrounding time clocking. It can dramatically reduce any buddy clocking issues that you may be having, and help you make sure that you are only paying the employees who have actually done the work.


Using a time tracking app can make your company faster, more secure, and more efficient. Time tracking apps give managers better oversight over employee work hours, and it makes their jobs much easier. If you have not tried a time tracking app at your company, then now could be the perfect time to try one out. The Ximble app is the perfect time tracking app to get started with.
