How to choose a Time Clock Company

How to choose the best one for your organization

System Features

Identify the key features you are looking for and create a list. For example, Biometrics, GPS tracking, or Vacation Request.

Pricing Comparison

Research pricing options and compare. Some systems have additional fees based on the features you may be seeking.

Customer Care

Any time clock system is only as good as their customer service. Look for a solution that will provide excellent service for years to come.

Choose the right Features

Before purchasing a time clock software, it’s important to consider the features that align with your company’s needs. Modern time clock systems offer more than just basic time tracking, including features such as vacation request and approval, GPS tracking, automatic holiday pay, PTO accruals, and more. By identifying the features that matter most to your business, you can make an informed decision and invest in a time clock system that will help streamline your processes and improve overall efficiency.

Price Consideration

Another thing you will want to consider before purchasing from any one of the many time clock companies out there is PRICE. The vast majority of today’s systems are web-based and have a cost per employee each month. Many systems will offer discounts for annual payments. These systems can range anywhere from $2.50 to nearly $10 per user, each month.

But don’t be turned off by monthly fees, most of these time clock systems pay for themselves each and every month by eliminating costly payroll mistakes and saving you valuable time and money each pay period.

Don't Forget Customer Care!

Good customer care is often overlooked when purchasing any time clock software product but could arguably be one of the most important features to look for. When something is not working correctly or you have a question that needs to be answered before your payroll deadline, having a friendly customer care representative is critical.

Look for an employee time clock solution that offers Email, Phone, and Web-based support. Ideally, one that is available during your primary business hours.
