Employees and managers alike love geofencing for easier, more accurate time tracking. When you enter or leave a job site, your QuickBooks Time tracking app will send you a reminder to clock in or out and suggest a list of job options associated with that location. Never forget to clock in or out again! Fewer timesheet edits, an extra level of verification, and an easier experience overall.
When employees enter or leave a geofence, QuickBooks Time reminds them to clock in or out. This decreases the occurrence of timesheet errors and edits.
No extra training needed. Geofencing helps your team clock in to and out of the right job every time.
The Exceptions Report round up flagged timesheets for employees who're on the clock but outside of a job site.
Clock in and out on time
You don’t have to use the geofencing function, but it serves as a polite reminder if you happen to forget to punch the clock.
Works behind the scenes
A clock in screen with relevant job codes assigned to that location makes it easy to clock in to the right job.
No editing needed
Geofencing tech remembers when you enter or exit a job site for accurate timesheets.
Privacy and best practices
- Employers will only have access to employee locations while workers are on the clock.
- Employers don’t have access to employee locations until employees clock in.
- The user knows best. QuickBooks Time won’t automatically clock you in — we just make it easier.
- QuickBooks Time doesn’t drain your phone’s data or battery life.
- Employees won’t get notifications when they’re off the clock, even if they’re close to a work site.
- Employers can set alerts, so employees only get notifications when they’re clocked in.
Study: Majority reports a positive experience with geofencing at work
When combined with mobile time tracking, geofencing can be used to remind workers to clock in or out. It can also be used to create safer job sites. But only 32 percent of our survey respondents said they’ve used the tech at work. Of those employees, 65 percent had a positive experience. And there’s certainly a correlation between an employee’s understanding of GPS and their comfort level with the tech. The better employees understand GPS tracking, the more comfortable they are with it.
