New ‘JobClock’ Offers Smart-Phone Integration

JobClock EX

Exaktime (Los Angeles, Calif.) introduced JobClock/EX, a portable time clock that integrates new smart-phone technologies into the The JobClock System, the time and attendance system used by professionals in the construction, landscaping, transportation, and other industries.

With the portable time clock at each work location, employees clock in with Keytabs that they keep on their key rings. Or, to track up to 1,000 cost codes, they can clock in with the FastTrakker™ handheld device. Every pay period, supervisors collect time records from each JobClock/EX with a BlackBerry® or Windows Mobile smart phone and instantly send the records to the office over a mobile Internet connection.

Exaktime CEO Tony Pappas said the combination of JobClocks with smart phones “creates a near-real-time system for collecting time punches from jobsites, no matter how far away they are. It also lets us add great new capabilities for foremen.”

The portable time clock’s data-collection software for smart phones offers foremen tools with a completely new set of multimedia capabilities, the company says. A supervisor can use the BlackBerry’s camera to take photos at the jobsite, and can also record audio field notes. Photos and voice recordings can be combined with written field notes typed into the BlackBerry and tagged either for the work site, an employee, or for a jobsite.

Time records and field notes are securely sent to the office computer from nearly any location using the smart phone’s Internet connection and the company’s JobClock.NET service. After the information is transferred to the company's office computer, the company’s TimeSummit software lets managers analyze and export work hours into the company’s accounting or payroll system, as well as review field notes.
