Here's an interesting article about time clock software for employees and why they do not work. These software have all these characteristics:
1. Automatic calculation of breaks
2. It’s too easy to add time “manually”
3. Automated confirmation of time worked

But, it ended with a good suggestion for something that works. These kind of software are indeed what we should put much attention to since they are the ones that should determine the productivity of a certain team or company.

We use Replicon time billing tool for time tracking and billing. From your requirements I understand that you need a complete package tool that does time tracking, billing and project management.

Try this tool and let me know your feedback.

Seriously, this has been amazing for us for years now.
Considering their popularity, simplicity and great technical support,
I wonder why more members here don't use them.
George we have been using vericlock..developed by a Vancouver BC painting contractor..but tsheets looks pretty good

I hear ya Pat, if I told my guys they had to punch a clock they tell me to go ...lol. Man part of the reason guys got into Trades years ago was not to punch a clock or be treated like mules. I understand wanting to track production rates and job hours etc.. This is one problem I don't have , the mentality of a good mechanic in my small part of the country has always been a honest days work for a honest days pay. In this economy the upside is guys are working harder than ever as they know good paying jobs are very far and few between. Back in the union days we all had daily memos to keep track of our hours for benefits to make sure we knew how many hours we had. My guys keep track of there hours and jobs as well as me. Works fine.

And something else:
we are a paint contractor, using it for many years and works well.
I use uattend. I think I pay $15.00 a month for up to 10 employees. Its the best deal I could find. GPS tracking, service categories and the payroll report is a click away for my payroll company. I'm going to look into tsheets though, the quickbook sync sounds nice.

I don't see the issue with time tracking. We're paying people hourly not on a commission. My guys actually like it because they don't have to manually keep track of there hours everyday. Plus, once we got the system going I started paying them for travel time to jobs sites when travel time exceeded 30 mins. Its a win win. If you feel your guys deserve a little extra for getting a big job done throw them a little bonus at the end of the week. Then everyone's happy and you can track your production times.

Quickbooks Pro Contractor Edition tracks time. You simply setup your customers /jobs then select if its billable time or not. I don't do it but I know its possible. Then it will print

Or try a bookkeeper.
I know my bookkeeper will track time for me. So then I could have my timecard app on my phone send an email to my accountant and then she would email me back what their pay should be then I write the check. Then each month she sends me a report to compare metrics and file quarterlies.
I think she would charge like 160 a month for that. Its not bad for all that work but I just pay 1099 and enter it all into quickbooks in december.
