Connecteam offers an easy and accurate way to track employee hours, with a one-click clock in and out feature that simplifies payroll, limits time theft, and ensures employees are paid correctly. Workers can punch in and out right from their mobile phone or you can set up a kiosk at shared job sites.
Here are some of the best Connecteam features that help simplify time tracking, scheduling and payroll:
Easy-to-use mobile app
Connecteam was built from the ground up for mobile devices. You can access employees’ hours, update schedules and assign tasks, and receive real-time updates, right from your phone.
Employees can update their working hours, request PTO, track their vacation time and update their personal information from anywhere. Employee data is stored securely in the cloud, so you and they can access it at any time. The app is an excellent option for multi-site companies, such as restaurants or retail chains, and any business with a deskless workforce.
GPS tracking and geofencing
Connecteam lets you easily create custom work areas that limit where employees can clock in and out from. This not only lets you keep track of which employees are at what job sites, it helps eliminate absences, time theft and buddy punching.
Importantly, GPS tracking is only available when workers are clocked in and on the job. Location data for employees who are clocked out is hidden at all times and cannot be accessed by managers, no matter what.
Push notifications for breaks and overtime
Connecteam also allows you to create automatic overtime alerts to prevent employees from going into overtime. This will help you maintain a happy, productive workforce and avoid burnout, in addition to saving money.
Connecteam also offers settings that prevent overtime all-together, automatically clocking out an employee when their shift has ended.
In addition, Connecteam actively reminds employees to clock in and out at the right time.
Simple and accurate payroll
Connecteam automatically calculates hours worked, overtime and double-time, and PTO. It also allows for different pay rates to be applied to different employees, ensuring fair and accurate compensation. The app also highlights payroll errors and discrepancies, reducing the risk of human error and making payroll quicker and more efficient.
Once your timesheets are ready, you can export them directly to Quickbooks Online or Gusto.
Connecteam allows you to create employee schedules in minutes, all while avoiding scheduling conflicts and minimizing unnecessary costs. It features an intuitive drag-and-drop interface, recurring shifts and one-click shift swapping. Everything is clear, thanks to visual cues and intelligent color coding.
These shift scheduling tools are available on both the desktop and mobile, so you can create and update schedules from anywhere.
You can also instantly share new schedules or updates with your team and assign shifts with one click to streamline the scheduling processes.
Forms, checklists and notes for shifts
Connecteam lets you add notes, documents, digital forms and checklists to shifts. Notes might include safety instructions, while checklists are a great way to ensure everything gets done on time. By including these details, you can ensure that your employees have all the information they need, right at the start of their shift.
Chat and much more…
In addition to simplifying payroll and ensuring accurate time-tracking, Connecteam also includes powerful chat features. These help workers and managers make the most of employees’ time. Workers at the same or different job sites can communicate easily via secure mobile chat, and managers can ensure workplace conversations are productive and appropriate.
Connecteam also has great features for task management, training and onboarding, company events, and much more.
If you’re looking for an all-in-one solution for tracking and managing employee hours, Connecteam is the perfect option.
