TimeStation App: A Mobile Version Of A Time Clock

Everything in the business world is becoming mobile. Business owners and employees use their smartphones and tablets for just about everything, but some companies still don’t have an easy, instant, and mobile way to punch in and out of work. Enter TimeStation, which is a new app that serves as a modern version of a time clock.

TimeStation

TimeStation gives business owners and managers the opportunity to turn their mobile devices into a contactless time and attendance system. Using custom QR code cards and an iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch, employees can punch in and out of work in less than a second.

Employers can also assign employee pin numbers so that people can sign in by using their assigned numbers. TimeStation also offers a site where employers can manage their departments and hours, track attendance, run reports, and more.

In addition, employers can set up TimeStations on multiple devices. By using their TimeStation credentials to set up the app on each device, employees can punch in on their own mobile devices or by checking in with another manager or supervisor.

Employers can also give employees the ability to manage their own reports and edit entries, but managers have full control over which employees receive access to those abilities. Other features available from TimeStation include the ability to work off-line, GPS tagging so managers can see where employees punch in and out from, and data security and encryption.

For small businesses, this mobile, cloud-based system can help to reduce overhead costs that come with traditional time and attendance management systems. It also gives managers the ability to see time and attendance reports from just about anywhere.

To use the TimeStation system, companies need only to sign up and download the app and then print out cards for their employees. Signing up and downloading the app are both free and TimeStation is free for organizations with up to ten employees, with several different monthly plans for larger companies.

  1. Interesting product. Mobile has been recently spiked like crazy and I can see almost all business and consumer products being driven via mobile. Nice to see that TimeStation can now replace manual time cards. Great idea! I sure hope that old businesses like restaurants can start utilizing mobile technologies.
