Best Time Tracking System

    ​Good morning,
    We are looking to update our time tracking system from an archaic time clock/time card manual entry to a software that could be uploaded
    easily into SL's payroll module. Can you tell me what system your company is using and what are some of the pros & cons? I'm seeing a lot about Kronos.
    One caveat to our industry is day rates - we may eventually want the ability for road crew to log in/out offsite.

    Thank you for your help.

    Hi Kathy,

    we have integrations with several different time tracking systems like TSheets, Attendance on Demand and others.  We also have our own mobile and time card system that might work as well.

    Kronos isn't that much different.  What are your requirements and we can figure out what we can do.

    Is this for work crews, etc?  Also NOTE: that we will be at the DSLUG conference and can show you different solutions.

    I will be in at the conference and a couple of our customers had chosen Kronos as a time collection function.  I can give you some information if you wish as there were some gotchas but eventually had been worked out but it was a bit painful.  Our customer had both hourly pay, day rates, and half day rates if worked less than 4 hours.

    Just reach out if you wish to talk.

    Hi Kathy,

    DATABASICS has a time solution that is integrated with SL that provides clock in/out capabilities as well as traditional timesheet features.   The solution is software based and accessed via the web, mobile apps, or a kiosk.

    We have worked with SL customers for over 15 years and will have a booth at DSLUG if you are in Anaheim in a couple of weeks.

    If you'd like to discuss your current challenges, please feel free to reach out.
